As demand for travel visas continues to increase, immigration authorities around the world are seeking alternatives to traditional pen and paper applications. This has led to a rise in the number of nations that offer electronic visas, or e-visas.
Two major perks of e-visas are that travelers can apply from their home computers and can maintain possession of their passports throughout the process. Once approved, e-visas are e-mailed to travelers for their trips.
Within the past few years, countries like Brazil, India, Vietnam, and Kenya have implemented electronic processes for visa applications. Every country has its own regulations regarding the travel purposes for which e-visas can be used; updated information about the aforementioned countries and others is available on VisaHQ website.
