More than 50 nationalities, including Swazi who plans visiting Kuwait can obtain a tourism or business without the need of visiting Kuwait embassy. Swazi can obtain their evisa via email when they apply through the internet, thanks to iVisa,
Prior to applying, Swazi needs to check their eligibility which you can easily do on iVisa’s website. Click on the Visa Checker then follow the instructions. Within in seconds, you will know if you are eligible so you can apply right away.
What do you need?
You will need to provide few documents prior starting the application process. iVisa will ask you to provide some information and documentation so they can process your request. Here is a list of what Swazi need to provide:
Valid passport – chances are you already have one. However, check its expiry date to make sure that is still valid.
Digital copy of your passport – the most important part is the information page, but you should go ahead and scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic visas are linked to passports electronically, and so will the visa provided by iVisa. Still, you 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.
Accepted payments – prior to submitting the application, you will be asked to pay the service fee for iVisa. You can do so using a credit/debit card or a Paypal account.
How to apply?
iVisa’s online form provides another convenience since Swazi don’t have to print out the form and fill in by hand. Everything can be accomplished within 10 minutes. Additionally, you contact iVisa’s excellent support service anytime you need assistance.
Just like with other application form, you have to insert your personal information in first step. Also, you need to choose the processing time. The time it will take for you to receive your visa will be determined by your budget. For convenience, iVisa gives you three options:
Standard processing – you can choose this option if you are in no hurry. It takes three business days for your application to be processed, and the 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.
Swazi should take note during application that the weekends in Kuwait are on Fridays and Saturdays.
To avoid mistakes, you should review all the information. Once the information is filled in accurately and correctly, you can then make the payment. Corrections are impossible to make after your application is processed.
The third phase is uploading some documents like the ones mentioned above. Depending on a particular situation, Swazi may be asked to provide additional documents.
Acquiring a Kuwait evisa, as you can see, is very simple. The document is valid for only 30 days, so you need to leave for Kuwait before the 30-day period expires. Also, Swazi can stay in Kuwait for maximum 90 days, and you have a single entry.
