  6. Visa On Arrival

    It may be possible to obtain your visa upon arrival under limited circumstances. Visa requirements and travel restrictions vary greatly when obtaining an on arrival visa. In addition, local immigration officials also hold the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason.

     

    Due to concerns around coronavirus and COVID-19 many nationalities are forbidden from obtaining a visa on arrival. Anyone who has travelled to regions affected by COVID-19 are unlikely to be allowed to enter. We strongly recommend that you obtain your visa prior to departure. Should you choose to obtain your visa upon arrival, you will need to inquire with your airline if boarding is allowed without a visa
