VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR HOLDERS OF REGULAR UNITED STATES PASSPORTS


ADVANCE VISA REQUIRED OR STRONGLY RECOMMENDED


The following countries require or recommend that visas are secured before your arrival. Notable recent changes to this list include Brazil being absent since waiving visas (beginning in June 2019), and Turkey now offering eVisas.

Terms and conditions vary; some may need to be acquired online. Some countries may simply recommend purchasing one beforehand in case the airport is busy—Australia, for example, may offer visas at your departure airport, but it’s wise (and may be necessary depending on the time of year you’re visiting) to get yours beforehand. Starred nations offer eTA or eVisas, which means you’ll get electronic approval rather than a physical visa to put in your passport—at least until you arrive. Check specific Entry Requirements for your destination on the State Department’s website for more details.

Visa on Arrival

Here are all the countries that require visas for Americans and offer them upon arrival. Starred nations use eTA or eVisa. Notable recent changes to this list include Egypt now offering eVisas and Qatar being absent since waiving visas for visits under 30 days.

Check your destination’s Entry Requirements page on the State Department’s website for more details, and note that some or all visa rules may not apply if you’re entering the country via cruise ship.

Europe Travel Authorizations Starting in 2021

Beginning in 2021, U.S. travelers to Europe’s Schengen countries will need to acquire an authorization which requires a process similar to that of obtaining visa, even though the European Union maintains that the countries remain visa-free for Americans. Called an ETIAS, the authorization will cost about $8 and is similar to SEPTA, the travel authorization that the United States currently requires of European nationals. Here are all the Schengen nations that will require an ETIAS as of 2021.


PASSPORTS

As of June 2020, holders of a United States passport could travel to 185 countries and territories without a travel visa, or with a visa on arrival. The United States passport currently ranks 7th in terms of travel freedom (tied with the passports of Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, and the UK) according to the Henley Passport Index.

COVID 19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several countries have imposed temporary travel restrictions on United States citizens or persons arriving from the United States.
