How to find out if your destination is a visa-free country?

The best way to find out if your destination country is visa-free is to check the visa requirements for your nationality at an embassy or on the embassy's website. It is the most reliable source of information even though there are also many others websites where you can find information concerning visa-free destinations.

What to do if your destination is not a visa-free country?

If you need a visa to enter a foreign country, you must apply for it early enough. Otherwise, you may not receive it on time. Prepare your passport and complete an application form correctly to avoid delays in visa approval. Remember to carry your visa and passport with you during your trip.

How to prepare for travel to non-visa-free countries

Make sure your passport is valid and check what visa types you may apply for. An electronic visa is the most convenient option. Don't forget to keep the approved documents with you during the travel.

Is it essential to research the different visa requirements before traveling to a destination?

Depending on your nationality, you may need to obtain a visa. However, there are many visa-free countries that you can visit without obtaining a travel permit in advance.
