An electronic Visa or e-Visa is an official document that permits foreign nationals to enter into a particular country and stay there for a specific time period . E Visa is applied for electronically rather than submitting physical paperwork. Applying for an eVisa is quicker and easier than applying for a traditional visa.
An e-Visa is generally processed with in – working days , however the approval or grant of visa depends upon the immigration of the specific country.
Before we get into the different ways of obtaining a visa, it’s important to point out that a country may require you to apply for a visa in a certain way. Embassy visa: Seasoned international travelers are probably most familiar with an embassy visa, so called because you have to go to the embassy with the required documents to apply. This is the traditional, paper version of a decade ago.
• eVisa: Again, an eVisa is like an embassy visa but applied for online. They are typically limited to travel for tourism.
• Visa on arrival: Also called a border gate visa, you can get this type of visa at the border as you enter a country. You will still be required to provide documentation and pay a fee. Like an eVisa, they’re typically only issued to those traveling for tourism. ETA: Also known as Electronic Travel Authorization, this is not the same thing as a visa. Visas generally guarantee that you can enter a country, and while an eTA may be required to travel to a country, it does not necessarily guarantee that you will be admitted. Just because a country is listed as “visa-free” or mentions a “visa waiver,” doesn’t mean you don’t need any documentation at all. You may still be required to have an eTA.
Validity of visa depends upon the issuing country and the category in which the same is applied for
Most of the countries need the passport to be valid for a minimum of 6 months .
