Brazilian planning a trip to Zambia may require some attention to detail, but do not forget to get your visa. Except for the people from a visa-exempt country, all travelers need a visa to cross the border. But did you know that you can get an electronic visa? iVisa can help you with that. You can opt for a visa on arrival or an evisa, both which can be obtained or paid online using the services provided by iVisa. All you need is a few documents, a laptop or a smartphone with an internet connection, and 20 minutes of your time. Your approval letter can be ready in as little as 24 hours.
What does Brazilian need?
To get started, you need to provide iVisa with some documents and information. They will handle all the dirty work so that you can invest your time in something else regarding your trip. Here is a list of what Brazilian need to provide:
A valid passport – if you already have a passport, look at its expiry date and make sure that it is valid for at least another six months from your date of arrival in Zambia.
Proof of accommodation – a hotel confirmation or a letter a host will suffice.
Return flight ticket
A scan of the information page of your passport
A digital photo of you – the photo needs to meet the criteria for a passport photo.
E-mail address – iVisa will send you a copy of the issued document via e-mail in PDF format. You need to print it before you leave.
Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and since Paypal has become quite popular in these past few years, you can use that as well if you have an account.
Processing time and fees
Since all you will be getting is an approval letter, all that you need to pay is the service fee for iVisa. The visa itself will be paid at the immigration office when you arrive in Zambia, and the cost depends on what country you are from. As for the processing time, iVisa gives Brazilian three excellent options, each with its own price:
Standard processing time – you will receive your evisa within 3 business days, and you have to pay only $20.
Rush processing time – by opting for this option, your evisa will be ready within 2 business days, and it costs more than the previous choice. You will be charged $60.
Super Rush processing time – this option is meant to satisfy the needs of people who plan to be on a plane to Zambia the next day. It takes only 1 business day for your application to be processed. As you may expect, it is more expensive. You will be charged $80.
How about the application process for Brazilian?
As previously stated, the process should not last longer than 20 minutes. You need to complete three simple steps, and if you need assistance, you can call iVisa's support service day or night. Step number one consists of your general information. You need to fill in the blanks with your name, address, date of arrival in Zambia, passport info, and a few other things. You must also choose the visa type at this point and the processing time.
The second step will ask you to make the payment and revise everything you have done so far. It is imperative that you check every bit of information you provide before submitting the application. You can make corrections only as long as your request is not processed. Once it is processed, you cannot correct your mistakes, and as a result, you need to start over. You will not get your money back either.
Lastly, Brazilian will be required to upload some of the documents mentioned above. At the same time, depending on your particular situation, you may be asked to upload additional documents. Not to worry, you will be informed about what you need to provide. After you are done, just submit your application and wait.
While a visa on arrival is available on multiple points of entry, the approval letter for a visa is only valid at three: Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka, the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone, and at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola. Brazilian will receive a document that will allow a maximum stay of 90 days, and the number of entries depends on what you choose while filling in the application.
