What does Eritrean need?
To begin, 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 Eritrean need to provide:
A valid passport – getting one is easy and if you already have a passport, do not over look its expiry date. Make sure that it stays valid for at least six months from the date of arrival in Zambia.
Proof of accommodation – a hotel confirmation or a letter from 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 of 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 your departure.
Mode of payment – iVisa accepts multiple modes including credit/debit card and PayPal payments.
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 Eritrean 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 Eritrean?
You won’t even break a sweat in completing the next step of the application since all you need is10 minutes. This can be easily completed, however, iVisa understand that you might need assistance with the application. With this in mind, iVisa have customer service that is available 24/7. 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.
Once you have filled in your details and selected the processing time, you will need to send your payment. After that, review your information carefully to make sure that everything is accurate and correct. Please note that corrections are not allowed once your application is processed. A misspelled word in your document will render it useless and you will redo the application.
Lastly, Eritrean 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.
Keep in mind that the approval letter is valid only at three points of entry: Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka, the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone, and at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola. The visa on arrival, however, is available wherever. At the same time, Eritrean needs to pay a fee once arriving in Zambia. The amount differs from nationality to nationality.
