How do I get my travel visa?
One of the most important things to prepare for your travels is checking whether you need a travel visa or not. All countries have different rules, so always make sure you inform yourself about the travel visa rules of the country you’ll visit a couple of weeks before you start your journey. We gathered the most important travel visa information.
What is a travel visa?
A travel visa is an entry permission for non-citizens to enter or cross a country. So whenever you travel to another country, you will need a visa to be granted access at the border (or the airport). This is your personal responsibility, as you need to make sure that all your personal travel documents (i.e. also your ESTA for US travels) are in order before you embark on your holidays.
The best way to inform yourself about travel visa rules for each country is by visiting their websites or get in touch with the nearest embassy. Make sure you’re eligible for a tourist visa when entering the country or, if necessary, apply for a tourist visa before your travel begins.
Some countries require no travel visa upfront, it will simply be issued on arrival. Some countries require you applying for a travel visa, which may take weeks or even months to process. Make sure you inform yourself on time about whether you’ll need a travel visa or not.
