Arrival process

Before you travel

1. Be sure to have passport valid for at least 6 more months since planned entry
2. Check travel authorization requirements
3. Have medical travel insurance
4. Check your department of foreign affairs for safety and travel limitations
5. Have accomodation booked at least for first few nights. You might be asked for a proof.
6. No matter the possibilities to pay by a card. Always have some cash available.

Upon arrival

1. When arriving, you will have to pass the immigration officer and provide them with required documents. This process might take up to one hour or more so when booking a transfer to your hotel or next flight, consider this.
2. You may be asked to provide arrival card/disembarking form or health form.
3. If you need to buy a local SIM card or exchange your money, we alwayys recommend doing so in the city rather than airport as costs are usually much better there.

During your stay

1. Have by your hand a tourist guide or dictionary with the most common phrases.
2. Do not bring your original passport with you when going out but only the photocopy. To reducy risk of loss or theft.
3. We highly recommend purhcasing local SIM card with internet connection to be able to reach for help and to navigate easier.
4. Use ride hailing services like Uber, Lift or Cabify when possible instead of taxi from the street. Your routes will be tracked in case of any problems.
