eVisas are electronic visas. When applying for them you won’t need to submit your actual passport to the embassy like you do for other visas. Instead, application can be done online with a copy of your passport. In some cases additional documents may be required, but they can also be provided electronically.
This option isn’t available for every visa, as only some countries have introduces them to simplify the application process. When you select a country you are travelling to on our map, you’ll be able to see what visa options are available for this country.
When an eVisa is issued, it is going to be emailed to you. This information is also available in the immigration system of that country. In most cases you will still need to print out the eVisa, and carry it with you when you travel - both airline staff and immigration officers will need to see it.
Processing times for the eVisas vary greatly - the Australian eVisitor is usually issued in as little as 24 hours, whereas a Ukrainian eVisa can take a couple of weeks! Exact timings can be found in each visa description.
