Gateway Services will handle the processing of electronic visas to visitors to the country. The report was published that the first visas are issued to the people of China and India, however, further planned development of the system for about 5 million tourists from 20 countries.

As the technology will collect all the data about a person into one file, encrypt it and place it on the blockchain - they will remain unchanged.
