Factors to Bear in Mind

Even if a visa is not required, you need to consider how many days you are likely to stay in the country. In cases where no visa is required, you will receive an initial stamp in your passport usually giving you somewhere between 15 and 180 days visa-free (every country has different rules on this). If you think you will need more time then you may still need to apply for a tourist visa or alternatively leave the country before your time is up and return.

A tourist visa does not give you the right to work in that country. Although cash-in-hand jobs are often easy to come by in some countries, others have sticter rules and if you intend to find a job, in most cases you’ll need to apply for a working visa.

Some countries offer either a ‘visa on arrival’ or an E-Visa. These options are┬ámuch less hassle and it’s usually worth going for them where they are available.
