As such, visa is not a separate paper document (except in Russia). Instead, visa is an endorsement or stamp in the passport issued by the Embassy or Consulate of the foreign country you wish to visit or travel.
The stamp signifies permission to the passport holder (a non-citizen of the country) to enter, transit or stay in the country for a specified period of time. There are certain visa regulations that must be complied with.
Unfortunately, Visa rules keep changing all the time and the Visa requirement can change too. Many countries fail to keep their websites updated on a regular basis - adding to the woes of the potential visitor.
We try to cover some information on Visa needs pertaining to many countries in this section.
