Citizens of many countries can be eligible for an E-Visa program provided they meet the required criteria. To find out these criteria, you should enlist the services of an experienced law firm. Crossroads Law Group, LLP notes that there are many factors involved in acquiring an E-Visa, some which can bar you should you make a mistake, so be careful.
Let's briefly discuss what an E-Visa is, and cover some of the basics.
"E-Visa" simply means Electronic Visa Application System. The E-Visa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within the country. The U.S. is one of the counties that agreed to honor the E-Visa system for business purposes.
Those applying for an E-Visa can apply online as opposed to direct application at Port of Entry. You will still be subject to filing fees. Upon the successful granting of your E-Visa, you can obtain your visa electronically after entering the required information and making payments by a credit or debit card, or other methods of acceptable payment.
Once you have obtained your legal E-Visa all passport control officers at ports of entry can verify your E-Visa in their system. Crossroads Law Group, LLP advises that you should always keep your E-Visa with you at all times.
You must be from a country that currently qualifies for acceptance of the E-Visa system. You can see the list below, but understand that it is subject to change at any time, due to international agreements, sanctions, or other changes in foreign policy by the U.S. government.
As of today's date, the answer is no. You will need to obtain another E-Visa.
As a helpful hint, be sure your travel date is as close to 100 percent set prior to applying to avoid going through the paperwork all over again and risking paying another application fee.
Crossroads Law Group, LLP consultations can save you time and the need for expensive damage control by applying correctly. Countries take their entrance policies very seriously and it might cause you irreparable harm if you provide inaccurate or poorly worded information, even though the mistake was honestly unintentional. You could also end up being flagged in this country and many others as a potential concern. Therefore, it is best to do it right the first time. Sometimes there is no fixing a wrong. Let Crossroads Law Group, LLP take care of it correctly.
Besides doing it wrong, there are numerous other ways you can get caught up in needless delays and red tape. Some of the benefits Crossroads Law Group, LLP provides are things you'll never even see, but they are a huge value to you.
Some countries, such as New Zealand, have what is called a Visa Verification Service where potential or current employers, medical providers, and educational organizations can check your eligibility and work status. One thing wrong and the problems can be devastating.
While you may be told or find that an E-Visa can be easily obtained anywhere with an internet connection, there are numerous ways you can get in a bind. Crossroads Law Group, LLP can help save you time, money, worry, and trouble.
Various foreign embassies and ports of entry are very different and the requirements can also be dependent on the country you are planning to travel and the dates of intended travel.
Crossroads Law Group, LLP is aware all forms of visas for businesses as well as their need and purpose so you start off right the first time.
