Plan Your Trip  » Visas

Congratulations! Landing on this page means organising your visas just got a whole lot easier, so that’s one less thing to worry about! Our dedicated visa planning service is a brilliant tool for determining exactly what visas you will need for your trip, and then allowing you to book them right here, right now.

Just use the interactive map below to select what countries you will be visiting (or type in the box at the bottom) and then click the orange button. This will bring up visa information for each country according to your nationality. You may find that for some countries you will not need a visa, but for the ones you do, completely up-to-date information and prices will appear. All you have to do then is select the right options for you and away you go!

The visa validity is the window of time you have to enter the country before your visa can no longer be used, whereas the duration is how long you may stay in the country once you’ve entered.

Generally, visas are valid for 3 months from the date of issue. The expiry date of the visa will be printed on it whether it’s a visa stuck in your passport, or an eVisa. You must enter the country before the expiry date, or you’ll need to get a new visa.

The duration of stay is the amount of days/months/years that you can stay in a particular country once you have entered with a valid visa. For example, a 30 day visa will allow you to stay in the country for 30 days, even if you arrive on the day your visa expires (not that we recommend this!).

It’s important to note the difference between validity and duration of stay. Your visa may be valid for 3 months, but this doesn’t mean that you can stay for 3 months. The duration of stay and number of entries you can make depends on which visa you apply for.
