12 countries with no visa or simplified entry requirements

12 countries with no visa or simplified entry requirements

Most countries require a visa for tourists. Thus they want to establish certain criteria for entry into the territory of the state. For example, in order to get a visa to Lebanon you need to have no record of visiting Israel, for permission to enter the U.S. You need to provide a lot of documents, including a certificate of employment or schooling, certificate of no criminal record, bank statements, and if you were previously married, the documents of divorce of all marriages. And that’s not all! And in order to get a Schengen visa you need a current bank statement, and if the citizen’s income is too low to obtain a Schengen visa, it may be denied. In addition, you need to take fingerprints at the consulate.

For a tourist who is just starting to travel, these nuances of visas seem something very complicated. You just want to book a tour and fly without nerves and anxiety.

Montenegro

Montenegro has stunning beaches and many natural landscapes, but the country is not too crowded with tourists.

Montenegro is a small state, but it is wrong to think that there is nothing to see. Therefore, even if for a couple of weeks, if you want, you can travel around the country, it is still difficult to see all the major attractions. Part of the difficulty has to do with logistics: Montenegro, in fact, has a vast and beautiful coastal area, which, however, is balanced by a more inaccessible and equally vast mountainous area.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, covering more than 105,000 square kilometers. It is also the birthplace of the revolution of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.

The island of Cuba is a popular tourist destination in the Caribbean because of its favorable climate, beaches, colonial architecture, history and natural landscapes. But beyond that, what to see in Cuba? Very beautiful in the western part of the island is the exceptional karst landscape of the Viñales Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Be sure to visit the beautiful colonial cities of Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa, Camagüey and Sancti Spiritus.
