Tourist visa

What is a tourist visa?

A tourist visa is a special permit that allows a foreigner to visit another country for the purpose of tourism. It is important to note that you cannot get a job on a tourist visa. Some countries can be visited without a tourist visa or can be obtained upon arrival at the airport. However, in other countries, it is necessary to apply for a visa in advance. The conditions and terms of visa issuance depend on the specific country you plan to stay in.

In addition to the regular tourist visa, there are several separate types of tourist visas.

A Schengen tourist visa is required if you intend to visit a Schengen country as a tourist. This visa allows single or multiple entries into Schengen countries. However, the period of continuous stay or the total duration of consecutive periods of stay since the first entry cannot exceed three months (90 days) within a six-month period (180 days). The time required to obtain a Schengen tourist visa depends on the timing of application and processing. The specific country to which you are applying for a visa may set deadlines for application and processing. Usually the processing time is 10 calendar days, but can be extended up to 30 working days if additional checks are required.

Some countries provide a general visa for a group of persons. A group visa is a special type of visa that is issued to a group of people, whether they are tourists or business partners. A tourist group visa requires at least 5 people in the group, while a business group visa requires at least 9 people. These visas are granted to those who have purchased a tour to China and plan to travel to that country at the same time.

If you are traveling to the United States or Australia and visa-free entry is not possible for your country, you will need to apply for a visitor visa to enter for tourist purposes.

Usually the following documents are required to obtain a tourist visa:

Visa application form

completed and signed by the applicant


Travel passport

valid for 3-6 months after the expected date of departure (depending on the country), with a minimum of two blank pages

Travel medical insurance

valid for the entire period of intended travel

Hotel booking

Paid or booked airline tickets
