As of the moment, there are 53 nationalities including Slovaks that can obtain a Kuwait evisa. This means that they are no longer required to visit an embassy and get their visa for Kuwait. Checking if you are one of those lucky people is easy. iVisa provides an easy-to-use tool called Visa Checker. All you need to do is put in your country of origin and select Kuwait as your destination. You will find out if you are eligible in just a second.
The application process is so easy to grasp, and Slovaks should have no issues in completing it. If, however, you have trouble understanding the process, iVisa provides an excellent support service that can take your call day and night.
What is required of you?
You will not find a service that does all the work without asking for something. Slovaks still need to provide a few things like information and documents. However, the list is not very long, and everything on it is easily accessible. Here is what you need to provide:
Valid passport – chances are you already have one. However, make sure that is still valid so always check its expiry date.
Digital copy of your passport – the most essential part is the information page, but you should just scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic visas are linked to passports electronically. However, you still need to print out a copy before departure, which is why iVisa will send you one via e-mail in PDF format.
GCC residence card – this applies only to applicants from the other countries that are a part of Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.) At the same time, the applicants from the GCC must work in specific fields. You can find all of them on iVisa’s website.
- Mode of payment – the Kuwait evisa itself is free, but you will be asked to pay the service fee for iVisa. You can do so using a credit/debit card or a PayPal account.
Processing time and visa cost
Time is valuable to every single one of us, which is why iVisa guarantees to do your bidding in as little time as possible. There are three available options when it comes to processing time, and Slovaks can choose one that best suits your needs or pocket. At the same time, your choice will determine the cost of your visa, so make sure that you read on all options. They are as follows:
Standard processing – if you like to plan ahead, you can go for this option. It takes three business days for your application to be processed, and the s service fee is just $20.
Rush processing– this option will have your visa ready in just 2 business days. The cost, however, goes a bit higher. You will be billed $60.
- Super rush processing – if you want to be on a plane to Kuwait tomorrow, you can select this option. Your application will be processed within just 12 hours, and you will pay $80 for the urgency.
Important: Kuwait’s weekend is on Fridays and Saturdays, so keep that in mind when you do the math regarding the processing time.
Kuwait evisa – the application form
Most of travelers, Slovaks included, do not usually like forms. Luckily, the one created by iVisa is easy to comprehend. It is broken down into three steps for your convenience. The first one will ask you to insert your general information and then you get to choose one of the three processing time of your liking. It should take you about 5 minutes to get it done.
The second step consists of payment and maybe a quick revision. Slovaks should be careful when filling the general information section. Mistakes can only be corrected if the application form is not yet processed, so there is no room for errors. Also, cost of your visa is not refundable after processing. The best course of action is to always check all the information you fill in during step one.
The last step will ask Slovaks to upload any additional documents you may be required to. The number of documents is case to case basis, so you may be required to upload more documents than other people. That is pretty much it. All you have to do, at this point, is to wait for your visa to be sent to your e-mail inbox.
The Kuwait visa is easy to acquire, and it takes only about 10 minutes of your time. The document you get will allow Slovaks to stay in Kuwait for 90 days, and you have a single entry.
