Generally, people board direct flights to reach their destination country or city. But, in some cases, there may not be a direct flight from your place of departure to your destination place. In this case, you opt for connecting flights.
This means you fly to an intermediate country called a transit country where you board a flight to your destination. This gives us an idea of a transit visa. A transit visa is required by a transit country where you stop to catch a flight to travel to your destination. It enables travelers to pass through the area.
Procedure to get a Transit Visa:
- After meeting the eligibility criteria one has to fill out the transit visa application form.
- You can also apply for a transit visa even before your trip through companies that offer transit visa services.
- Few countries need a person to apply for a transit visa by visiting their consulate or embassy.
