How much will a visa cost and do I need one for three months?:

A visa will cost money and you will pay this back to us once you have arrived. Yes you will need a visa for the three months that you will be volunteering here at Beautiful Kidz, the reason is the government sees this volunteering as work, so in order for you not to be deported we will apply for your work visa for three months. The payment for your visa is as follow:

Admin: N$ 50
Handling fees (H. affairs): N$ 80
Approved visa (H. affairs): N$ 390
Total:: N$520
