In general, it is often possible to change the travel date, but it may be subject to certain conditions and fees. Airlines, for instance, typically offer options to change flight dates, but they may charge a change fee and any difference in fare.

Some countries have visa waiver agreements with certain nationalities, allowing visitors to enter without a visa for a specified period. However, this exemption usually has limitations, such as the purpose of travel or the length of stay.
It is important to note that visa requirements can change, so checking for updates before making any travel arrangements is recommended. Allow enough time for the visa to be processed, as it can sometimes take several weeks or even months. You can contact us to help you obtain the visa.
