  • Visas are necessary if you’d like to travel to a country that does not have a visa policy in place with your home country.
  • Many countries have visa policies and agreements that allow their citizens to travel freely between them without the need for a visa.
  • A country’s visa policy is a rule that states who may or may not enter the country.

What is a Passport?

A passport is issued to a country’s citizens for international travel and identification.

  • A passport is used to verify one’s country of citizenship. If traveling outside your country, it is used to regain entry into your country of citizenship.
  • Passports include your photo, name, birth date, gender and physical characteristics.
  • Diplomats and government officials are granted different passports than what's given to regular travelers.
