VISA INFORMATION

 

LESOTHO ENTRY VISA

As with Visas of any other country, a Lesotho Visa does not guarantee entry into Lesotho. That decision remains the right of the Immigration Officials at the Lesotho Port of Entry. Also note that the issued visa does not absolve the holder from compliance with immigration Regulations as follows:

Make sure your passport has at least 2 blank Visa pages. Most destinations, including Lesotho, require that you have adequate un-used pages in your passport allowing for affixing of the necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel.
