Foreign travel can be invigorating. While some revel in the cultural differences, trivial or otherwise, from one country to the next, collecting passport stamps like some cosmopolitan philatelist; others find the crossing of international borders a tedious and difficult process. Long lines and invasive questioning make these travelers wonder if they should have just stayed home.

Make sure to meet all your requirements, including any necessary visas, to avoid an embarassing and painful mistake. Travelers without proper paperwork have been denied entry and forced to return from whence they came. This can mean another flight (or more) at the traveler's expense.

Visa and passport

Expat insurance would like to share a useful website we've found to help navigate visa requirements around the globe. It is called Sherpa°, and they are a handy guide to "getting the right travel documentation and understanding up-to-date travel requirements... not sponsored by, affiliated with or funded by any government agency."

You can put in your travel desination(s), vaccination status, and passport country. Sherpa° will list the visa requirements, with helpful links to the pages of the corresponding authority near you. I was pleased to find that sources of the information listed clearly, and that said information had been updated the previous day.

Use the link to try it out before your next international trip!
