Frequently Asked Questions about botswana Visa

What do I do if I do not satisfy the requirements for applying online?

If you do not satisfy the requirements for applying ETA online, please apply through a travel agent, airline, or Botswana visa office. If you are not available for an ETA VISA, you can still apply for a another electronic visiting visa.

What can I do if I make a mistake in my application?

It is important that you are very careful when you enter your personal details. You will have an opportunity to review all the details you have provided and can change the details at any time until you confirm all details as correct.

If you have made an error, it is important that you correct it before proceeding. Once you have confirmed the details, your credit card will be debited for the non-refundable service charge.

If you find out later that you have made a mistake, you will need to make a new application (and incur another service charge). We cannot change the details on an ETA once it has been issued.

Note: If your ETA details do not match your passport details you might experience delays when boarding your aircraft or be refused to enter Botswana.

  • Your passport should be valid for at least 6 months beyond your stay in Botswana.
  • You must be able to finance your own living and travel costs.

The embassy may request you to provide additional documents or information, according to your personal situation, even after you have submitted all the required documents mentioned on the official website of the Embassy/Consulate/Visa Application Center.

How early can I apply for a Botswana visa online?

The earliest date to apply for a Botswana visa is one month before the date of travel to the country. In order to allow for adequate time for visa processing, it is advisable that all visa applications are submitted ten days, prior to traveling.

What is the difference between a single entry and multiple entries?

One must carefully note what kind of entry is permitted. If the visa reads a single entry, its holder can only enter and leave Botswana once whereas, with multiple entries, he/she can enter or leave more than once.

When is the best time to visit Botswana?

Botswana experiences two distinct seasons; hot, wet summers and cool, dry winters. The average temperatures during the summer months (from October-April) hover around 40 ̊C. These months are very humid and are when much of the country’s rainfall is expected. The winter months (May-September) are characterized by clear, sunny days with warm temperatures averaging between 27 ̊C – 35 ̊C. The best time to visit would be during the winter months when pleasant weather is expected and the humidity is minimal. This is also the best time to view wildlife as herds of animals begin to migrate.

Please allow 14 working days for visa processing which should exclude the submission day, weekends, and bank holidays.

  • Documents relating to a business trip (invitation letter, business card, etc.)

Do I need to purchase a Travel Insurance?

Applicants are strongly advised to purchase Travel Insurance to secure their trip in the occurrence of unexpected events such as medical emergencies, flight cancellations, baggage delay or loss, etc.

Are these trips suitable for children?

Safari options are definitely suitable for children as young as 6 (12 on set departures). Please note that this depends on the child and is the responsibility of the parents to determine whether this type of program is suitable for their child. There are long drives on Safari (sometimes lasting 6-8 hours) and the roads can be very rough. Some accommodations will not accept young children, so speak to your trip planner to find appropriate programs.

What is the difference between a passport and a Botswana visa?

A passport is an official government document that certifies one’s identity and citizenship.  The passport serves two purposes; to regain entry to the country of citizenship (i.e. the United States) and is a requirement by many countries to gain entry to the country you are visiting. A Botswana visa is an official government document that temporarily authorizes you to be in the country.  Many countries require a visa to gain entry.  The Botswana visa is in the form of a stamp/sticker IN the passport and is obtained from a Botswana Embassy in Washington DC or consulates around the country.  We have staff spread around the country to hand carry your application for you and then overnight the passport back when it is completed.

What is a Botswana Visa?

A Botswana visa is a stamp or endorsement placed by officials of Botswana on a passport that allows the bearer to visit Botswana.  Visas are obtained from the Embassy or consulates of Botswana for your visit.  “Visit” is further defined as the reason for entry, usually business, tourist, or transitory.  There are over 200+ countries that offer visas and literally thousands of different types of visas available based upon country, type of visit, and length of visit.

What currency is used in Botswana?

The official currency used in Botswana is the Pula. USD, Euros, UK pounds and South African rends are also accepted. Major international credit cards are accepted at most hotels and there are also ATMs available throughout Botswana, dispensing local currency.
