How To Coordinate Trips To Complicated International Travel Hot Spots
When you are making travel plans, it seems like there is always a problem at some point, and for many people, it is something menial, but if you plan on traveling internationally, there are a few things you should know prior to venturing to some countries that should make your trip a lot simpler to plan, without being tied up just before you hope to leave.
A few countries need some particular arrangements in order for you to schedule your trip if you plan on traveling to the Middle East, and in some instances, like with Saudi Arabia, it might be even harder, demanding that you spend $500 on a hajj religious tourism visa in order to visit the country. In Kazakhstan, you have to write a personal letter of intent to the embassy in Washington DC before you can apply for a visa a month beforehand, and luckily, their price is forty dollars, but in Iran, you need to apply a full three months before your visit, but it will only cost you $27, although United States citizens are required to submit for fingerprinting once arriving in the nation.
In Asia, if you wish to head to Bhutan, you must make your preparations through a licensed tour agency in the nation, as well as commit to spending at least two-hundred dollars a day while you’re there, and you must do so 3 months prior to your trip, and in China, you have to complete a four page application to visit, on top of spending a pricey one-hundred thrity dollar fee at least three months in advance.
Costing you one-hundred forty dollars, venturing to Brazil is even more costly, with 3 months notice before your trip, and is complicated further by the fact that all of their offices are governed independently, with vastly different rules for entering the nation. Trying to get Russian visas is just as pricey, charging the same $140 charge, but is made increasingly hard by the fact that you could only enter the nation if you have been sponsored by an organization or tourist group and have received a written invitation, which you have to present in person to one of only 5 United States consulate offices at least ninety days before your departure.
Having United States Passports does not give you the ability to travel any place you want, and it might be difficult to coordinate a venture to some places across the globe, but their laws are not ours, and vice-versa, so make it easy on yourself and do as much research as you are able before setting an definite plans to travel internationally.
