What is a tourist visa?
A tourist visa is a travel document that allows you to travel to a foreign country for leisure, or business purposes (attending meetings or conferences, no economic remuneration). To work, study, or start a company, you are required to apply for a specific visa.
Every country has its own rules and types of visa. Under certain conditions, you will even be exempted from a visa. For some countries, you will only need to register online (e.g.: ESTA for USA, ETA for Canada), or you can travel freely with your ID (e.g.: Schengen area).
When it comes to types of tourist visa, each country has its own. Some only allow one short stay and others allow multiple visits during more than half a year.
Sometimes it may be difficult to compare different types of visas and know the requirements for each country. The goal of Visagov is to make it easier for you to choose the right one and apply for it fast and easy.
How to get a tourist visa?
Until recently, you had to go to the country’s nearest embassy, wasting time and money. Now, many governments have the eVisa or the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) system that allows the whole application and approval process to be carried out online. This saves time and bureaucracy headaches.
It's easy, just choose your destination on our website, see the requirements and check your eligibility. After that, it's just one form and you will get your tourist visa in a few days.
How much is a tourist visa?
The price of a tourist visa depends on the country you are travelling to, and the type of visa you choose. There are some types that are free, but some can cost well over 100 EUR/USD. Please choose the country you plan to visit in the section below and see the visa options and their prices.
If the country offers more types of the visa, the golden rule is: the more days you are allowed to stay, the more expensive. We also charge a processing fee which covers the handling of the visa, communication with the government and 24/7 assistance. You can also purchase the express visa, these are processed in a couple of hours, but the price is slightly higher.
