In addition to careful planning for a safari adventure in Zambia, Latvian also needs to prepare their visa. Fortunately, iVisa is providing assistance without you having tovisit Zambia’s diplomatic mission. You now have the option to apply via internet which makes it super convenient as you only require a laptop or a smartphone. Currently, only 95 nationalities are qualified for an evisa but your chance of being eligible is pretty high.
With regard to qualification, you can utilize a tool called the Visa Checker to confirm your status. Located in the upper-right corner of iVisa’s website, simply select your nationality as Latvian from the menu and choose Zambia for destination. Your eligibility will be displayed quickly and you will be redirected to the application form. That’s how easy it is.
The first step that you will do is to gather all the documents and information. iVisa can initiate your application once they have the requirements. You need to provide the following:
A valid passport – double check your passport to be sure that it is valid for a minimum of six months from your date of entry 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.
It is not daunting to accomplish the next step of the application. All you need is 10 minutes and in case that you will encounter any issue, you can contact iVisa’s 24/7 customer service to provide assistance.
The application process involves three steps. The first one includes your general information such as name, address, e-mail, date or arrival in Zambia, passport info, and so on. Latvian must also choose the processing time and visa type during this time after inputing information. Visa type have options for number of entries and processing time comes with three options:
Standard processing time – as standard, this is the longest option. You will receive your evisa within 3 business days for only $20.
Rush processing time – you can opt for this for $60 and your evisa will be ready within 2 business days.
You will need to make payment in the second step using the methods above. You should also be focusing in reviewing the information that you have submitted. It is crucial to do so as amendments are not allowed once your application is processed. Any errors in your document will make it void and due to that, you will repeat the application.
Depending on the situation, Latvian may need to submit additional papers for the final step. For example, Latvian with minors requires additional documents when travelling to Zambia. Whatever the additional documents are, you will be notified right so you can upload it promptly.
Remember that you need to pay additional fees upon entry in Zambia. iVisa charges the processing of your application so that you can acquire an approval letter. The visa per se will be given to you in Zambia once you made payments at the immigration office. Lastly, the approval letter is only accepted at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka, the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone, and at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola. On the other hand, visas on arrival are available all on airports.
