What is the difference between a Tunisia Online Visa and an embassy visa?

At the moment, unless a traveler is from a country which is eligible for visa-free entry into Tunisia it is necessary to go to a Tunisian embassy, in person, to apply for an embassy visa.

The Tunisian Online Visa, once available, will change this for eligible applicants. The application form will be completed online, eliminating the need to go to an embassy or consulate.
