Visas for Round the World Travel

Checking visa requirements for the countries you're visiting is essential. There's nothing worse than arriving somewhere and being told you can't enter because you haven't got the right paperwork.So, what is a visa? In short, it's a stamp or form placed in your passport when you enter (and sometimes when you leave) a foreign country.

It shows permission to travel to, enter, transit or stay in a country. It doesn't guarantee entry ? that remains the right of the country's immigration officers.What do you do to get the required visas? If you're organising your itinerary independently of a travel agency, you need to check with the embassies of each of the countries you're planning to visit. If you're organising your itinerary through an agency, they should be able to advise you.
