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.
