One of the most important factors for tourists in choosing the country to travel to is the opportunity to travel without a visa. Getting a visa to enter a country can be a huge burden on the budget, as well as dealing with collecting many documents and wasting your time with them, which can often be annoying. For this reason, many people who make holiday plans are looking for countries where they can travel without a visa.
Citizens of some countries are very lucky in this regard and have the opportunity to travel to many countries without a visa. It is enough for them to just buy a ticket and take their passport with them.
