Hi Crystal, we are all confused at the moment because no one seems to know what is going on, you have plenty of time to apply though, as usually the visa's are valid for 6 months from the date of issue, so it is a bit early to apply.

Everyone is waiting to find out, what is happening, and if there are to be visa's on arrival, but no news yet.

The visa's this year were over 90 pounds each, rumour is if you get a visa on arrival it will be 40 pounds for 30 days. We just have to wait to find out.

Hi no one will be able to help at the moment as the visa application is supposed to change in October, if you are going for 30 days or less you will be able to apply for VOA,plus it is supposed to be cheaper if this happens this season know one knows. If it doesnt just read Meerkats visa thread at the top of the page. Dont worry you will find plenty of help on here when the time comes for you to apply for your visa which should be about September/October.:-)) Gel. Snap Gayle

You just need to keep an eye on here over the coming months to see what is being said about visas.

As others have told you, the process is likely to change so it's not worth stressing about the application or price right now.

Even if visa-on-arrival isn't implemented by the time you need to apply, it will be cheaper using the official website (currently VFS Global).

CIBT are visa agents and will charge you more than if you use the official website.

I guess you may have booked your holiday with Monarch/Cosmos?
