Entry and Travel Requirements

Entry Requirements

The entry requirements for a selected foreign destination are the currently applicable rules that determine which documents travelers need to enter the country they want to visit.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the entry requirements have become rather complicated and may rapidly change, making traveling more difficult.

Travelers should always check the applicable entry requirements when planning a trip abroad and adhere to the set-out rules and regulations to ensure crossing the border without any issues upon arrival.

The latest entry requirements implemented by governments of foreign countries include:

  • Visas
  • Passports
  • Passenger Locator Forms or other health declarations
  • Travel insurance (often with Covid coverage)
  • Covid-19 test results
  • Proof of being fully vaccinated (vaccination certificates)
  • And more

Each country establishes its own travel requirements, listing the required documents that are later on checked upon arrival.

The applicable rules are adapted to the current Covid-19 risks of each country and now usually serve as an additional safety measure during the ongoing pandemic to protect the general public.

Travelers who do not adhere to the applicable entry rules and restrictions may be refused entry to the selected country.

Visa Requirements

Each destination sets its own visa requirements applicable to all incoming visitors determining which document they can enter with.

There are four main categories of visas/entry offered by most countries, and these are:

  • Visas
  • Electronic Visas: eVisa, ETA, ESTA, NzETA, K-ETA, etc.
  • Visas on Arrival
  • Visa-free entry

The governments of foreign countries establish lists of countries that can visit their territory on a visa-free basis and on what terms they can use this type of entry.

Find out which countries you can visit with an eVisa, VoA, which you may enter visa-free, and which ones require making an Embassy visit beforehand, all based on your passport and nationality held.

Visa-Free Countries: Most Powerful Passports

A passport is a document that proves the traveler's identity and citizenship. It is one of the most essential documents for international travel as the passport you hold can actually determine how many countries you can visit visa-free, with an electronic visa, standard visa, or visa on arrival.

According to the latest rankings, the most powerful passport in the world is the Japanese passport, which allows visa-free travel to over 150 different countries! That's nearly two-thirds of all the countries in the world.

In fact, not everyone can just visit the embassy and obtain a passport from one of the top-ranked countries. First and foremost, one will need to be a citizen of that country and meet any other application requirements. 

If you are looking to travel to as many countries as possible without a visa, then you should definitely consider applying for a passport from one of the following countries:
