Types of visas:

Please note that this is a broad overview of visa terminology. Each country may have a unique way of designating a particular type of visa. Also, not all countries offer all types of visas. For example, a tourist visa is not available for every country. If you are unsure about the type of visa you are applying for, please contact one of our representatives.

  • Business visa: For participation in business meetings, negotiations or participation in business conferences.
  • Tourist visa: To undertake or participate in recreational or recreational activities. This could be part of a cruise, a tour group or an on-site destination.
  • Transit visa: When one connects with another flight en route to your final destination. This is usually indicated as a short layover, but you will not be leaving the airport terminal. If you are, you will most likely need a tourist visa.
  • Work visa: To work in a foreign country and get paid in the foreign country by a company based there.
  • Residence visa: To reside in a foreign country indefinitely.
  • Student visa: A person who studies abroad and will return back to the host country.

  • Retirement visa: Some people get this visa if they want to retire in certain countries. The countries that offer this type of visa are Indonesia, Philippines, Brazil and several others.
  • Entertainment visa: If you plan to be a performer and entertainer on a cruise ship or certain events, you may be asked to apply for this type of visa. Countries that offer this visa are Australia and Brazil to name a few.

Besides the above-mentioned visas, there are other types of visas with exotic names. For example, an escort visa that allows a man to accompany an unmarried woman while she is on a business trip to Saudi Arabia. I would appreciate it if you could share with me what other names and types of visas you know. So I can update my article.
