Finding out if you need a visa and what type of visa you need is probably the least fun part of booking a trip.
What kind of visa you need and if you even need one in the first place depends entirely on where you are from and where you want to go.
Do I need a visa?
Using Travelscope, it is really easy to determine whether you need a visa for your dream destination. Just enter your home country and click enter – it will show you all the countries you don’t need a visa for, all the ones you need a visa on arrival for, and the countries you can travel to without needing a visa. This interactive world map works for all countries.
What type of visa do I need?
You can enter your destination at ProjectVisa and it will tell you special agreements your preferred country has with other countries, which countries don’t need a visa, and it will also offer you links to the country’s embassy and its visa regulations.
If you are still unsure, consult the website of your country’s and your destination’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Usually, everything you need to know can be found there.
