Where you can see if your destination is a visa-free country?
Lists of visa-exempt countries are available in person, at embassies or consulates, and online at embassy websites. Before choosing a travel destination, make sure the information source is up to date. The list of visa-free destinations changes frequently, so just because a country requires a visa doesn't mean it no longer requires a visa.
What to do if your destination is not a visa-free country?
If the country you want to visit requires a visa, check to see what types of visas are available. Electronic visas are easier to apply for than paper visas. The online application process also takes less time and is approved faster.
When choosing the right registration type and method, gather the necessary documents and complete the registration process early enough to receive them in time before your trip.
Information to know before traveling to non-visa-free countries
- Before applying for a visa, check the validity of your passport. It cannot expire less than 6 months after the expected arrival date at our destination.
Collect supporting documents that must be attached to the application form.
- If you apply for your visa online, print the approved document and bring it with you throughout your trip.
Do you have to check the different visa requirements of each country before traveling?
Checking the list of visa-free countries before each trip abroad is our regular preparation. Different destinations have different and constantly changing entry requirements. Choosing a location that does not require a travel permit will save time and money on the visa application process.
