Visa on arrival

A visa on arrival is a special type of visa that allows you to obtain authorization to enter the country at border control points upon arrival. Certain formalities may be required to obtain such a visa, including payment of the relevant fee. It is important to note that this visa is only available on arrival and you should familiarize yourself with the requirements and rules in advance.

Visa on arrival is a special authorization document that allows the tourist to stay in the country for a certain period of time. Its peculiarity is that it does not require a preliminary application in the consulate and is put in the passport of the tourist directly at the border crossing. Most often such a visa is issued upon arrival of the traveler at the airport of the country of destination, so it is called "visa on arrival" or "visa on arrival". It is also possible to obtain such a visa at international ports and land border crossings.

What does a visa upon arrival mean?

This means that it does not need to be issued in advance. The process of obtaining the relevant permit takes place directly at passport control when arriving by air. Please note that migration officials have the right to refuse to issue a simplified authorization document. Reasons for refusal may be:

  • incomplete set of documents;
  • the validity period of the passport is less than 6 months;
  • the applicant has outstanding fines;
  • active court proceedings;
  • travel restrictions, wanted list, etc.
