How get to know if your destination is a visa-free country?

In order to find out if your destination is visa-free, check the list of requirements for different countries.

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

If your destination is not a visa-free country, you should apply for one of the travel entry documents you're eligible for - a visa on arrival, eVisa, or a regular visa.

Things to know before traveling to non-visa-free countries

If you're planning a trip to a country that requires a visa, there are a few things you'll need to do in order to get ready:

  1. First, check with the embassy or consulate of the country you're visiting to see what kind of visa you'll need. Depending on your purpose for travel, you may be able to apply for a tourist visa, business visa, or student visa.
  2. Once you know what type of visa you need, gather the required documents, submit your application, and pay the applicable fees.
  3. Then, simply wait for your visa to be processed and approved. Keep in mind that the process can take several weeks, so plan accordingly.

Is it necessary to check visa requirements before travel?

Each country has its own rules and regulations, so it is necessary to check visa requirements before travel, as otherwise, you may not be able to enter a country.

If you cannot travel visa-free to your destination, you must obtain an appropriate visa type - an eVisa, a visa on arrival, or, if other options are not available - a regular visa in an embassy.
