We need you to send us copy of your passports in order to process your visas from here. Once we received the scan of your passport page (the one with photo) we will process the visa and send you a scan of the visa two weeks before your arrival. Please bring it with you. The original will be waiting for you upon your arrival to Socotra airport or Sana’a airport and we will be there to help you. You hand them your passport and the scan of the visa. They will put the visa into your passport. You do not need to pay anything at this point. With the passport now provided with a visa and the filled-in “arrival card” you proceed to the immigration and then pick up your luggage. This is when you will meet us at the airport.
Most of our itineraries are “ECO” so we strongly suggest to our guests to stay in eco campsites. There are however two eco lodges close to Hadibo: Adeeb and Delisha.and four hotels on Socotra, all of them in Hadibo: three economic hotels (Taj Socotra Hotel, Socotra Tourists Hotel and Hafej Hotel).
For some of our clients certain services are indispensable. We suggest that they opt for more expensive option: the Summerland hotel
