Botswana selects Pangea’s eVisa solution

Travelers to Botswana will soon be able to complete visa applications online and ease their entry into the country and the new service will also reduce the government’s investment of funds, time, paperwork, and manpower allocated for visa applications.

Pangea is also modernizing Botswana’s computerized immigration and citizenship system

Israel’s Pangea, which specializes in digital transformation of government and business services, has been selected by the government of Botswana to integrate its eVisa solution as part of the southern African country’s efforts to expand its digital and online services. This will enable visitors to Botswana to obtain a visa online and have a seamless entry upon arrival at all the land and air arrival points in the country.

The new process is expected to minimize the government’s investment of money, time, paperwork and manpower allocated for visa applications, and to better service the visitors. The decision is seen as a major vote of confidence by Botswana in Pangea’s eVisa solution and follows years of experience by the Israeli company in digitizing government services in the country.

eVisa transfers the entire management of the visa application process to the digital space. The traveler enters the country’s eVisa portal, submits the application and the supporting documents online, pays online and communicates with the authorities over the internet. If and when the application is approved, the eVisa can be downloaded, printed, brought to the airport, and help both authorities and travelers to minimize queues and cumbersome paper-based documentation.
