A trip to the Ivory Coast entails more than planning what to visit and at which hotel to sleep. Since there are only a few countries whose citizens are exempt from getting a visa, you may need one to cross the border. Lucky for you, you can apply for one online. Using the services rendered by iVisa will make the whole process a piece of cake, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
What are the requirements?
One of the benefits of using iVisa as your visa service is that the list of requirements is very short. You will be required to make a minimal effort. Even so, you need to provide some document and some information so that iVisa can get the process started. Here is what you need:
Passport – if you wish to apply online, you need to have a passport. You need one no matter which application method you use. However, the passport needs to be valid for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Ivory Coast, and a blank page is required. Take a look at your passport to ensure it meets these requirements.
E-mail address – iVisa will send you the pre-approval letter via e-mail, which is why you need a valid address. Do not forget to print a few copies before your departure.
Means of payment – when you apply online, you need to make the payment during the application process. Lucky for you, iVisa provides several methods of payment. You can use a credit or debit card, but if you have an account on PayPal, Alipay, or WeChat, you can use one of them as well.
Yellow Fever vaccination certification – before you leave for Ivory Coast, you need to have your inoculation against the Yellow Fever. A certification that attests the vaccine is required.
The application process
Once you have everything you need, you can move forward and fill in the application form. That does not take more than 20 minutes, and if you need some assistance with the form (or anything else), you can contact iVisa’s support service. It is free of charge and available 24/7. Someone is always available to take your call and guide you every step of the way.
There are three steps you need to complete. The first one will ask you to fill in your personal information and choose a processing time. Be advised that your selection determines the cost of your Ivory Coast visa.
The second step will ask you to make the payment and revise step one. Do not underestimate the revision since you cannot correct any errors once your application reaches the processing phase. The last step consists of documents upload. iVisa will notify you of everything you need to upload so that you have a successful application. Once you are done, hit the submit button, and the document will arrive via e-mail in the timeframe you selected during step one.
Keep in mind that what you receive is not the Ivory Coast e-visa itself. What you actually get is a pre-approval letter. Only if you have that you can pick up your visa at the Port Bouet Airport in Abidjan.
As you can see, getting an Ivory Coast visa online is more accessible than ever. iVisa makes its business to make your application process smoother. The document you receive is valid for 90 days since the issue date, you can use it for a single entry in the Ivory Coast, and you can stay for a maximum of 30 days.
