Every travel tour starts with getting the correct set of travel documents, passports and Visas. We will talk about the most usual travel countries specifics when it comes to travel documents.

Travel visas allow the bearer to enter a foreign country for touristic and leisure purposes only and stay for a predetermined amount of time. These visas do not entitle the holder to work or engage in any business activities in the host country. Travel visas can be separated into two categories: immigrant and nonimmigrant. Immigrant visas allow the bearer to reside permanently in the host country, whereas nonimmigrant visas allow the bearer entry into the host country on a temporary basis.

American citizens travelling to the UK for a vacation do not require to get a visa, but will need a valid passport. During your flight you will be asked to fill out a landing card where you’ll have to provide your name, date of birth, gender, nationality, occupation and the address where you will be staying in London that must be shown with your passport at the security control.

You can apply for a tourist visa to Saudi Arabia, but the oil-rich country will probably deny you entrance (sources say they’re not interested in tourist dollars). Not only that, but the U.S. Department of State warns against attacks on U.S. citizens committed by ISIL and other Islamic extremists. And women can’t go at all unless accompanied by a husband, father, brother, or uncle. If you’ve got to go, pass through this Middle Eastern country on a 72-hour transit visa, or by arranging a tour through a local agency. Tricky country: Turkmenistan. Even with an official Letter of Invitation, a 24-hour guide, and a fully-planned itinerary, it’s not uncommon to be rejected. If you can’t secure a tourist visa, you can aim for a three-day transit visa (granted to travelers biking or driving across the country). Make sure to pencil in time to see Yangykala Canyon and the Door to Hell: a 23-foot-wide crater that has been burning for more than 40 years.

These are much easier to obtain than a few years ago. Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan are visa-free, Tajikistan has an easy online process, Uzbekistan is fairly easy and Turkmenistan is tricky. If you need a visa, applications can be made in person or via post at most of the republics’ overseas embassies or consulates. If your country doesn’t have Central Asian representation you’ll have to courier your passport to the nearest embassy, arrange a visa on arrival, or arrange your itinerary to get the visa in another Central Asian republic or elsewhere en route.

With the exception of Turkmenistan, visas do not list the towns to be visited. The tourist-visa application for Turkmenistan requires you to list the name of every town you want to visit, and most of these places, excluding the capital, will be printed on your visa.

These Schengen countries have a border-free visa agreement that lets residents move throughout the Area without needing to show their passport every time they cross a border. Essentially, it’s as if they’re one country, and you can move as freely as you want. (Residents of the UK and Ireland are allowed limitless entry.)

So make sure your Schengen visa is ok. Do you need real genuine passports and have a question like: Can I travel to USA if passport expires in 3 months? Answer: Your passport is valid until the date of expiration. The only problem may be the entry requirements of the country or countries you plan to visit. Many countries require your passport to have 3 to 6 months validity remaining before they will allow you to enter or issue a travel visa.
