Bhutan is one of the smallest countries in the world, its cultural diversity and richness are overwhelming. As such, strong emphasis is laid on the promotion and preservation of its culture by Government and King of Bhutan. As a tiny country with a very small population the need to preserve culture and tradition automatically gets amplified, and people definitely support this motion.
What is the first thing that you need to plan an international trip?
Passport of course! You thought we’d say visa? We wanted to but then it would have been incorrect and giving you wrong information goes against the policy of this blog. However, we liked the way you thought (wink).
Bhutan, the happiest country in the world, officially known as Kingdom of Bhutan lies on Himalayas’ eastern edge. This landlocked country is known for its dzongs, monasteries and beautiful landscapes where Buddhist culture embraces the global development. Still untouched and untroubled by external influences, this country has a charm that can’t be described in words.
It is particularly difficult (read expensive) to travel to this Asian kingdom, but not for Indian nationals. Due to strong ties shared between Bhutan and India, Bhutan allows Indian passport holders to explore the surreal landscapes by providing direct entry permits on border towns and in Thimphu.
So how would we describe this fabulous country? The first word that comes to our mind is a melting pot of cultural fusion. The diversity in Australia will surprise and amaze you. From the city skylines to the suburban villas the adventures continue. Here smiles and greetings with such warmth is as common as auto-rickshaws in Mumbai. People are more laid back, and don’t be surprised to see shops closed with signs saying out surfing when the whether is great, coz that’s how the Aussies roll!
In last week’s article we spoke about Dubai Visa, and everything you need to know about it. But let’s be honest, every case is different and every traveler would have different questions based on their travel plans. We were poured in with so many questions post that blog with various scenarios at hand, it felt as if everyone is travelling to Dubai this weekend (wink).
We found out some common questions that many of you had, and tried to consolidated them into single inventory. Here’s the quick list of mostly asked questions regarding Dubai visa.
Dubai! Oh Dubai! Dubai has been a popular destination for travelers since some time due to various reasons, be it largest indoor ice skiing slope or tallest of towers with beautiful hotels and resorts, it has something to offer to everyone. But, what most people forget is, all these is available to you when you reach Dubai; however, there is this tedious process called Visa application (flights and planning) that one needs to follow before putting their feet in the land of gold. Here in this blog, we have simplified the pre-arrival process for you so that your trip starts from your home!
Malaysia, the country that truly captures the mood and flavors of Asia is placed on 9th position in the world for tourist arrivals. With an amazing diversity of cultures, festivals, traditions and customs, Malaysia does offer a great experience to travelers visiting this country. It is but obvious to have easy visa policies in place to handle such huge inflow of people. Of course, travelers do talk about troubles faced due to discrepancies in visa, but those are small hiccups, and our blog for today is not focused on it. Today we are going to talk about Malaysia visa and how to apply for it.
There are two major categories of visas, we spoke about them in brief in the article dated on September 20, 2017, you can read it here. Today we would like to take a deeper dive into non-immigrant visas and divide them further into subcategories.
Non-immigrant visas are the mainstream visas and are used for everything ranging from recreational visits to business visits. A non-immigrant visa is issued to a person who wishes to be in other country on a temporary basis for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study etc. However, many of these visas do not allow you to live and work in the other country for extended periods of time. Instead, these visas are designed to allow visitors to visit other countries for a specific purposes.
“Digitization is the key to transformation.”
We are moving towards a digital era where everything from your food to your government registration card can be applied online. With larger population being able to access internet, and higher literacy among people about digital world, going online is surely the way you want to take. And so, this leads us to our today’s blog topic, “Do you really have to submit physical documents for your visa process?”
Early bird gets the worm, true..but what about the worm? From worm’s perspective, its choice of timing was a disaster!
Well, keeping our funny side away, we want to get back to today’s topic of discussion, “How early one can apply for visa?”. We spoke about processing times that various countries take to complete your visa application process post submission in previous article, you can revise the article here. That blog was around the question as to “how early one should apply for visa?” keeping travel plan in mind. Today’s article focuses on how early the bird (read embassies) allows you (worm? Or may be not!) to apply for visa so that it is a hassle less experience for both the parties.
