You will also be required to choose the processing time which will determine the service charge depending on your choice. iVisa provides three excellent choices:
Standard processing time – for only $45, this is the most affordable option and the most commonly used. Your application will be processed within four business days. You should apply 6 days before departure because while delays almost never happen, it is best to be on the safe side. The ‘2 days in advance’ rule applies to all processing times.
Rush processing time – this option will have your visa ready within 2 business days. The fee for this processing time is $75.

The second step consists of revision and payment. Travelling Macedonian citizens should carefully and accurately input their information to avoid confusion or loss of their document. The final step will ask you to upload additional information and answer a few personal questions. As for the former action, document varies from person to person. For example, if you travel with your minor child and without the other parent, you will need an authorization letter from the said parent. After that, click on submit and wait for the visa to be sent to your email inbox.
