Lesotho Visa – How To Apply For A Mosotho Visa

Thinking about traveling to Lesotho any time soon? You will not need to obtain a Lesotho Visa in order to travel there for up to 3 months. Though you do not need a visa to travel to Lesotho, you will need to verify that your current United States passport is in order and ready for travel to Lesotho.

It is recommended that six months validity after your intended stay in a country should be on your passport when you leave that country. Though Lesotho only requires 3-month validity, other countries that neighbor Lesotho may require 6 months validity. Be sure to double check these requirements before you travel to any bordering countries of Lesotho.

It is also important to keep in mind that you will need to keep blank visa pages in your passport book when you are traveling abroad. The recommended amount of visa pages that should be left black in your passport book is (2).

Lastly, if you will be traveling to Lesotho via air and you have to stop in another country for a layover, you may need to obtain a transit visa. We recommend that you inquire about your flight specifics with the airline company you have booked your flight with.

If these requirements are satisfied, you should not have any issues when traveling to Lesotho.

If you stay in Lesotho longer than you are supposed to, then you will not be able to enter South Africa according to the immigration authorities in Lesotho.
