So, you are planning an overseas vacation in the near future? Congratulations, because you are going to be in for quite the treat, as you will get to experience breathtaking landscapes and picturesque backdrops. However, before you embark on your journey, there is going to be lots of planning and tasks that you have to accomplish before you will even be allowed in the country. One of the tasks will be acquiring a travel visa. Travel visas are small documents that allow you to enter and exit a country, and they are usually only good for a certain amount of days.

Acquiring these types of documents can sometimes be a hassle, which is why the whole process will be laid out for you below.

Proper Research Beforehand
It is always best to start researching and planning at least 4 to 6 weeks, before you plan your departure, so everything will be in order. Your best source of information will be the Department of State Travel website, as you can access different information about different countries. On this website there will be a specific section dedicated to specific countries so, you shouldn’t have a problem finding the one that you are visiting.

Pay Attention To Entry/Exit Requirements
Keep in mind that every country has different entry and exit requirements, but it will be imperative that you pay close attention to this section of the website. This section will tell you what basic requirements any US citizen must meet and adhere to, before he or she can enter and exit a certain country for tourism purposes. Acquiring a Vietnam visa on arrival can be a little tricky, because you might be required to present a valid passport, along with a round trip plane ticket, or at least an outbound ticket. This basically, means that you need to already have your tickets booked in advanced for traveling back to the states.

In addition to this, you must make sure that you passport is valid for the certain number of days that you are going to be visiting the country. You will probably also notice that there is a link on this page, which will take you to the embassy website of the country that you are choosing to visit. Your next step will be to visit this embassy website.

Embassy Requirements
As mentioned above every country has different requirements, and it is imperative that you understand what these are. At the embassy website this page will include other crucial information that you need to know about your trip. For instance, US citizens that are visiting Costa Rica for 90 days or less do not even need a visa. In fact, all they need is a passport that is valid for 90 days, and a round trip or outbound plane ticket. Of course, visa on arrival Vietnam might be different, so you want to make sure you pay close attention to this section.

Once you know everything you need all that is left to do is gather the information and documents. Soon after that, you will be well on your way to embarking to a new and exciting country.
