Where you live/travel from is immaterial, what matters is what passport you hold.

Yes, you will need a visa, but you can get it at the airport.

You may not have realised, but I bet your passport was stamped on entering and exiting the country. You should have two round stamps and a square stamp that reads: VALID 30 DAYS STAY FROM DATE OF ARRIVAL. That is your visa.

What Tinsey is trying to say, it is Vias on Arrival. This is the same for British (citizen) Passport holders.

I thought that's what I'd said:

Yes, you will need a visa, but you can get it at the airport.

I meant at the airport ON ARRIVAL. Apologies for not clarifying.

The immigration officer will ask you a couple of questions, reason for your visit, length of stay, what accommodation you have booked, then they'll stamp your passport. Your passport will be stamped again on departure.

Hope everything is now crystal clear :-)

Apologies for any repeat posts. The iPhone app is temperamental and does not do what you want it to do. Lol.
