Tourist visas - This is the most commonly issued visa by this country. They are exclusively meant to be used for tourism purposes only. The authorities are very strict with those misusing the tourist visas by entering into the country and searching for a job on a tourist visa and also there are a lot of people who come on this tourist visa and work. It is illegal and the visa holder is subjected to get hefty fines, lifetime blacklist or/and even a jail term.
