What is the change? Chinese and Indian nationals applying for electronic eNTRI (tourist) visas must submit their online application at least 48 hours before their departure date.
What does the change mean? Affected travelers should not wait until the last minute to apply and should not expect to obtain an eNTRI visa in less than two days.
