So grab your passport, check to see if you are required to have a visa, and join the other thousands of travelers who are exploring the world!

Why this is relevant for American travelers:
North America and the Schengen Area have an agreement that allows US citizens to travel into/around the Schengen member states for 90 days without a visa. In short, this means that Americans can travel to #1-10, with the exception of Sydney Australia, without having to obtain a Visa.
However, if you have a criminal record or have been denied entry into one of these countries you should obtain a visa.
To travel into any other country other than the USA, you need to own a valid passport.
All you must do is either:
- Find your local Passport Agency, fill out and provide the necessary paperwork, and pay for the service and you will have a passport in 4-6 weeks (on average).
- Use our reliable, quick, and professional expedited passport services to have your passport sent to your home in the next 48 hours if necessary. If this is your first passport, you must show up to have an agent verify your signature and documents, but we can still secure your passport as quickly as you need it!
The Top 10 Travel Destinations for First-Time Travelers is a great option for travelers to see the world. Since you’ll mostly only need a valid passport, you can avoid the headaches of applying for visas. If you find yourself needing rush visa services, please give us a call and we can help. Happy travels!
