How to Find the Visa Requirements for any Country in the World

Visa Requirements

I recently ran a survey of readers to ask what was missing from the site.

In the ‘Sabbatical Planning‘ feedback section, it was suggested there needed to be some simple information on the site to discover the visa requirements for each country.

This is not a small task!

Not only are visa requirements different for most of the countries around the world, but they also depend on your nationality. For example, if you are a Brit travelling to South Africa there is no visa requirement, but if you are American you will need to get a visa enter.

But I didn’t give up, and enlisted the help of some experts on the subject.

To help you out when planning your trip I have two suggestions:

1) Visa Requirement Tool

I have set up this tool with the help of Just put in your home nationality and where you are travelling to and you will get your visa requirement.

Really simple!

(P.S. this tool may not work on mobile so you may need to request the desktop version or use a laptop).

*I am a partner of VisaHQ meaning if you decide to use their services to help you sort out a visa I will get a small commission. This does not make the price any more expensive for you, but does help me pay for the running of this website.

2) Use This Link

If you are Australian, Canadian, British or American (the four biggest readers of this site!), then the link below should help you to find out the visa requirements for the countries you plan to visit.
