Visa on arrival: The concept
Have you ever travelled to international destinations? If yes, then you must be having a fair idea about the making of visas. If you have never travelled to international destinations, then this blog is for you.
Why do you require a visa in the first place?
Many people who have not travelled to international destinations still have some questions on the requirement and eligibility of visas. Please note that a visa concerns approval from the government of the country or the international destination to which one would like to travel to. At the same time, applying for a visa needs you to meet some specific criteria being a citizen of India.
What is the difference between visas and passports?
Visas and passports remain to be important documents in case you are travelling to an international destination. While visas give you the approval to visit the concerned destination, passports are approvals from the Government of India (GOI) so that you can leave your own country.
How can you apply for a visa?
Since visas are approvals received from a foreign country, it is mandatory that you apply for one in priority. In most of the cases, visas need to be applied for at least a month or two before your visit is being planned. Tourist visas are generally processed fast and are not declined frequently. However, interestingly, there are some countries, which can give you a visa on arrivals as well.
