Your questions, answered.
What is an eVisa?
An eVisa, or electronic visa, is an official government document permitting a foreign national to enter a country. Unlike a paper visa, an eVisa is issued digitally, without a physical label in the bearer’s passport. Applying online is faster, more accessible, secure, and less expensive than applying for a paper visa.Contact Us Page

Why offer eVisas?
Deliver customer value two ways. First, we take the complexity out of the application process by standardizing and modernizing the application form to make it less intimidating and, therefore, easier for the traveller to apply. We use modern tools like document scanning and auto-fill to help make the application process faster. Second, navigating potentially fraudulent visa sites that have high fees is confusing for travellers. Providing them with a credible partner to help process their application builds your brand trust and customer loyalty.Contact Us Page
Is the eVisa market growing?
It’s a growing market. Since 2019, the number of countries mandating eVisas has doubled. By 2023, over 150 countries will offer eVisas, including the new Schengen Area, ETIAS. This means an estimated 1 in 2 international travellers will require an eVisa before departure.Contact Us Page
