A small nation in Central America, Guatemala was once the heart of the Maya empire and holds a long history of Spanish colonization. Tourists visit every year to witness Maya ruins such as the popular El Mirador and Tikal. These two are said to be the most fascinating as they are considered the cradle of the Maya civilization. Additionally, Guatemala has many volcanoes, many of which exceeding 3000 meters in height. Don't worry, not all of them are active . . . and they are stunning scenery. Lake Atitlan is yet another popular attraction along with Rio Dulce, which is a beautiful emerald-green river that you cannot miss while in Guatemala.

Before embarking on a trip to Guatemala, you need to see if you need a visa or not. If you are lucky, you may be on the list of 85 countries and jurisdictions whose citizens can enter Guatemala visa-free for up to 90 days. Citizens of all the other nationalities must visit the nearest diplomatic mission of Guatemala and apply for a visa in-person.

To find out whether or not you need a visa, you can take a look at Guatemala’s visa policy, but we recommend using iVisa’s Visa Checker Tool. It's located in the top right corner of this page. In seconds, you'll know if you need a visa. Simply choose your country of origin from the drag-down menu and select Guatemala as your destination. If you do not need a visa, Bon Voyage! If you do, we provide a list of the embassies you can use to apply.

Unfortunately, iVisa does not process visa applications for Guatemala at the moment, but as soon as that changes, we will offer a safe, fast, and reliable visa processing service. We still like helping all travelers, which is why we offer a free 24/7 support service.

If you need to visit an embassy to apply for your Guatemala visa, make sure to do some research about the specific requirements before you go. You can do that online, but we recommend that you call the diplomatic mission itself. It is the most reliable source of information. Websites are not always up-to-date, and that can lead to critical mistakes. Just give the embassy a call or email to find out more. Nevertheless, what iVisa can tell you is that you'll need a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond your date of arrival in Guatemala. For further information, contact the nearest embassy of Guatemala.

We regretfully are unable to process requests for Guatemala visas at the moment, but as soon as that changes, we will be able to help you with a hassle-free visa application process. Until then, we hope that the above information is helpful.
