Default Visa Fees

Visa fees have always been an annoyance; luckily, not too many countries have charged the fees and most are reasonable. For our upcoming Dubai to Cape Town cruise i knew i had to get an Indian visa. Decided to get the 10 year visa at $175 (vs $85 for six month visa) and then paid $70 each for processing and then mail; a total of $500 for the two of us (I know it could be cheaper if i went straight to Consulate but not much). Then, I found out that we have to pay $99 to Kenya, $199 to Tanzania, and $169 to Mozambique EACH; and they are all one day port visits!!!!
