If the person fails to enter the country within this period, a new visit visa application has to be submitted upon entry into the country. There are three types of visit visa available:
Visitor can stay for thirty (30) days from the date of arrival into the country. This visit visa is not renewable.
Visitor can stay for ninety (90) days from the date of arrival into the country. This visit visa is not renewable.
