Visa Types

There are different types of visas but the most common include; the transit visa which lasts for less than three days and issued for people passing through a country to another stop. The tourist visa to people who wish to travel for leisure. There is also business visas issued to those who wish to engage in commerce in another country.

Criminal History

So many nations in the world require that the visitor is checked if he or she has any record of criminal history in his or her native country or any other country. If the person is found to have any criminal history he or she may be barred from entering the particular country of interest. Most data can be found via your passport ID.

Fingerprinting

Several countries across the globe including the United States of America, Singapore, and Japan require adult passport holders to be fingerprinted on arrival. Most countries are taken photos when arriving but it's also becoming more normal to take fingerprints for all non-residents. In Jordan and United Arab Emirates they have added iris scan as well.

Israeli Stamps

The Arab League boycott of Israel and the Immigration services in Israel have stopped stamping foreign passports whether, on entry or exit, of the holder since some countries like Iran, Sudan and Yemen do not allow visitors whose passports bear the stamp.

Vaccinations

So many nations in the world require that the visitor is checked if he or she has any record of criminal history in his or her native country or any other country. If the person is found to have any criminal history he or she may be barred from entering the particular country of interest. Most data can be found via your passport ID.

Sufficient Funds

Many nations, even if the passport holder has free access to that country, have to make sure that the visitor has enough funds to spend while in the country. In addition to this, they may also require the visitor to show evidence of ticket of exit
