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!

Letters of invitation (LOIs) are documents issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, an agency, company or national of that particular country inviting you to visit the country for a period of time.

Some countries have more relaxed rules about the LOIs than others. For instance, Turkmenistan LOIs must be issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) while the ones for China can be written by a travel agency or even your friend if they live in China.

In the cases where it’s the MFA issuing the LOI, the application process may take weeks, so it’s recommended to check the requirements well in advance of your trip.
