Venezuelan going to Zambia can now obtain electronic visa. Since the process is done entirely online, you are no longer required to visit the embassy to get a consular visa. iVisa created such service that will handle all the bureaucracy for a reasonable price. You can get your letter of approval in as little as 24 hours with a very minimal effort.
For iVisa to process your request, you have to provide a few things like documents and information. No need to worry though, since every item they ask is easily accessible. Here is a list of what you need:
A valid passport – it should be easy for Venezuelan 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 move to the next stage which is the application form. It is a very straightforward process and you can contact iVisa’s customer support whenever you need them.
Venezuelan will have to fill in basic information like name, address, passport info, date of entry in Zambia, and a couple other things in the initial step. You need to choose the visa type and processing time during this time as well. As for the processing time, iVisa is providing different options that cater to your needs and budget. Below are your choices:
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 Venezuelan to pay the service fee. It is also highly suggested that you review your information as it is really important to do so. The reason behind this is because you can only revise your information if you have not submitted it. Once submitted, your application will be processed right away and there is no way for you to correct the errors. You will lose both time and money since iVisa has a strict no-refund policy after the processing.
Aside from what was mentioned above, the last step consists of additional photo upload. Venezuelan will be asked to upload additional documents. 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, Venezuelan needs to pay a fee once arriving in Zambia. The amount varies from nationality to nationality so it is advisable that you ask the immigration officers.
