Transit Visa

Visaleets | Updated on 14 Sep,2022

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 travellers to pass through its area. A Transit visa is generally required for travel by air; however, sea and land travellers may also be required to produce a transit visa.

A Transit visa will not allow you to stay back in the connecting country and you are also not allowed to get into the city with a transit visa. One should also keep in mind that a transit visa is not required in all cases. For example, a transit visa is exempted in the below conditions:

     The traveller possesses a diplomatic passport with validity.

     You are a citizen of a country which has a bilateral agreement with the transit country.

     In some countries, a transit visa is not required if the time of boarding the next flight is less than 24 hours.

     You are not intended to leave the transit zone.

     You already carry a valid visa from the transit country.

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 which offer transit visa services.

     Few countries need the person to apply for a transit visa by visiting their consulate or embassy

Documents Required for a Transit Visa:

   Passport of your country which is valid for up to 6 months. The passport should also have blank pages for stamping purposes.

   Travel health insurance is a mandatory document.

   Identity pictures of your Passport are required.

   Destination country’s visa

   Documented proof of funds etc.
