Apply Visa for Antigua and Barbuda

What one needs to travel right after a passport, is a visa. Visa is a stamped certificate authorized to travelers by the government of the traveled country. Any person carrying a visa of any land or country recognizes that the applicant is permitted to visit that certain territory. It is stamped on the passport when issued from the embassy. But there are other ways too to issue a visa. There are Visa on arrival and E-visas. Visa on arrival can be obtained when the traveler lands on foreign territory and applies for the visa from the immigration desk. And E-visa serves the opportunity of appealing for the visa online. One does not need to go through the trouble of applying for a visa from the embassy when the country simply serves E-visa options.

Antigua and Barbuda is available to 100 nationals through E-visa since 2016. Any citizen of these 100 countries can apply online for entry on the territories of the Caribbean Island countries. The E-visa of Antigua and Barbuda has a validity date of 180 dates and multiple entries are possible within this span of time. It would only take a few minutes to fill up the online form of E-visa. And with the proper guidelines, it will be fast and easy and also less likely to make a mistake in the process of E-visa.

Before making a visa one should know about the classifications of visas there are. The type of visa depends on the purpose of the trip or visit to a foreign land. The validity of the visa might also depend on the class of the visa and the motive of the trip. There are:

  • Student Visa
  • Visitor or Tourist Visa
  • Business Visa
  • Employment Visa
  • Special Exemption Visa
