Majority of visas are issued by the embassies of the respective countries. That means that the passport needs to be submitted to the embassy for the application process.
The situation is different with eVisas (Electronic visas). These are issued by the Immigration Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the respective countries. EVisas don’t require the original passport and once the visas have been granted we will receive a notification and will email the approval letter to you.
