The waiting time is 20 – 40 minutes, depends on how many people do the visa on arrival procedure at the same time with them. They have to submit all required documents (passport, approval letter, 2 photos 3x4cm) and fill out an application form. After finishing the visa on arrival process, they officially get visa and come to passport control counter to do immigration check.

For those using the fast track service, the service staff will pick up and support them to submit all document in the priority line, which help them to get visa very fast. And then check through Immigration passport control at VIP gate. The total time for whole process takes 5 – 10 minutes.
