The entry corridor for eVoA is 90 days from the date of payment.

Upon arrival, a VoA visa can be obtained for 30 days directly at airports, seaports, or when crossing land borders. And then extend once for an additional 30 days. Holders of the electronic visa (eVoA) can extend their visa online without visiting the immigration office.
