Visa requirements for Canadians

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports can purchase a visa upon arrival (VOA) in the country at the first airport or land border crossing point. There is no application process.

Visa requirements for Foreigners

You must apply directly to the high commission for this visa. No third party can assist.


Canadian citizens using Canadian passports buy a visa-on-arrival (VOA) for short stays as tourists or on business. This does not apply to persons holding Canadian "Travel Documents" (1951 convention refugees); or to persons with foreign (non-Canadian) passports and Canadian Permanent Resident cards. This does not apply to Canadians who are using non-Canadian passports, or to Canadians going for work or study or any other non-tourist/business reason.
