Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Why work with us?

Our expertise is international travel. We have a global mindset and perspective and are trusted by the biggest names in the travel industry. We work across multiple verticals—airlines, airports, OTAs and TMCs—which provides us with a level of expertise and industry learnings that only experience can provide. We develop and maintain our products and continually iterate to improve the traveller experience and our partners’ results.

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 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.

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 Zone, ETIAS. This means an estimated 1 in 2 international travellers will require an eVisa before departure.
