Uruguayan visiting to Zambia should be aware that an electronic visa can now be obtained. As this is the case, you are no longer required to visit the embassy to get a consular visa. As an entirely online process, iVisa will handle all the bureaucracy for an insignificant fee without you leaving your home. You can get your letter of approval in as little as 24 hours with a very minimal effort.
For iVisa to process your papers, you have to provide a few things like documents and information. You do not have to worry, every item they ask is easily accessible, and getting them should present no difficulty. Here is a list of what you need:
A valid passport – it should be easy for Uruguayan to get one, and if you have one already, make sure that it is valid for at least 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.
Once you know you have everything you need, you can proceed to the next step of the application which is the application form. It is a very straightforward process and you can contact iVisa’s customer support whenever you need them.
Uruguayan will have to fill in basic information like name, address, passport info, date of arrival in Zambia, and a couple other things in the initial step. You need to select the visa type and processing time. As for the processing time, iVisa is providing options that will satisfy your needs and budget. They are as follows:
Standard processing time – you will get your evisa within 3 business days, and you have to pay only $20. The document itself needs to be paid on arrival in Zambia.
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.
The second step will ask Uruguayan to make the payment. Also, reviewing the information is quite necessary at this point since this is the only time that you can revise. Once your application is processed, there is no way that you can correct the wrong information. You will lose both time and money since iVisa has a strict no-refund policy after the processing.
The last step consists of additional photo upload. Uruguayan will be asked to upload additional documents aside from what was mentioned above. It depends on your personal situation. For example, if you travel with your minor child, you need an authorization letter from the other parent. Once you have gone through all three steps, all you can do is wait for your document to be sent.
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, Uruguayan needs to pay a fee once arriving in Zambia. The amount differs from nationality to nationality so it is advisable that you ask the immigration officers.
