Countries accepting e-Visa applications for Africans

…well, some African nationals 🙂

What is an e-Visa?

Electronic visa (e-Visa) is an official document which allows you to freely enter a country. In comparison to the visa sticker or stamp, the e-Visa is a document you print or download on your device, usually a PDF.

How do I get an e-Visa?

Not all countries accept e-Visa applications, especially for Africans. Many countries still use paper applications and require you to show up in person for an interview.

What documents do I need for an e-Visa?

This varies from country to country. For example, some countries want you to show an invitation letter, others don’t mind. Be sure to read the requirements needed.

How long does it take to get an e-Visa?

Again, this depends on the country. Some countries take up to three days to give you the status of your application. The fastest I’ve got my e-Visa is 2 minutes!

Which countries accept e-Visa applications?

Here is a list I gathered for Ghanaian nationals but will hold for many african countries.

Remember that immigration laws are subject to change and although these countries issue e-Visa, you may need to have  transit visa when transiting in some countries.
