Nationals of most countries receive an entry visa on arrival. These include most citizens of Europe and the UK, North America, South Africa and Commonwealth countries. It is essential that you check the visa requirements for your complete trip (including transits) before you depart. We suggest you approach your government travel advisory service, the country's embassy you will be visiting and transiting through or a visa agency. It is your responsibility to research and arrange your own visas. If you are refused entry into a country, it is your own responsibility and Your Safari will not be liable for any expense or inconvenience incurred as a result.
