Tips for going to non-visa-free countries

Traveling to non-visa-free destinations demands more preparations, so it is helpful to take a look at the following tips:

  • submit the application form way before your arrival date to be sure that you get the visa on time;
  • even if it is not mandatory, it is better to make paper copies of your documents to have them with you at the borders just in case;
  • ensure your passport is valid, as you are not able to enter most countries with an invalid travel document even if you have a visa.
