Guess all of you are well aware of the fact that a travel visa is a stamp/ sticker that is placed in your passport which gives you allowance to enter into a particular country. A general travel visa works well unless you plan to seek employment in another country, or migrate, relocate, marry etc.
To explain it just as Wikipedia does, Visa (meaning 'a paper which has been seen') is a conditional authorization granted by a country to a foreigner, allowing them to enter, remain within, or to leave that country.
Every country has a different Visa processing method. You can apply for a visa in either of these ways:
1) You can arrange it before you leave home by enquiring/ sending your passport to your destination country's embassy, or you can apply in person at a country's embassy.
2) You can apply for an e-visa.
3) You can get a Visa on arrival at the destination country.
Travelers who are citizens of the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and Schengen countries don't require Visa for most of the foreign destinations. Yet, the best advice we can give is to check once before you travel, in order to avoid any sort of hassle.
Each country charges a particular Visa Fee that you'll have to pay, along with other necessary documents (that they may ask for). Also, your passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months from the date of travel, and have enough pages available for stamping. Processing your Visa could take several days, so plan well in advance.
Here's a list of few websites that can help/ assist you in getting more information about the Visa procedure for the country you wish to visit.
