At the moment, a number of foreign citizens need a visa for Botswana and must apply for this travel document in person from a Botswana Embassy.
However, this will change when the Botswana visa online is introduced in the near future.
The Botswana eVisa will greatly expedite the application process and facilitate entry to the country, as it will eliminate the need to travel to an embassy in person or wait in long border queues to obtain a Botswana visa on arrival.
Eligible foreign citizens will be able to apply for the eVisa through the simple online Botswana visa application form.
It will be necessary to complete the form using basic personal, passport, and travel information, and pay the Botswana eVisa fee before submitting the application.
Once approved, the eVisa for Botswana will be sent to a current email address provided on the form. The holder will then be required to download and print a copy of the approved visa to carry with them when traveling to Botswana.
A Botswana visa for US citizens and several other nationalities is not necessary for short stays up to 90 days. However, for longer periods of stay, it is necessary to apply for a visa from a Botswana Consulate or Embassy.
