Visa & Passport

Historically, immigration officials were empowered to permit or reject the entry of visitors on arrival at the frontiers. If a permitted entry, the official would issue a visa, when required, which would be a stamp in a passport. Today, travelers wishing to enter another country must often apply in advance for what is also called a visa, sometimes in person at a consular office, by post, or over the internet. The modern visa may be a sticker or a stamp in the passport or may take the form of a separate document or an electronic record of the authorization, which the applicant can print before leaving home and produce on entry to the visited territory. Some countries do not require visitors to apply for a visa in advance for short visits.
