Good morning all,

Just been searching both on here and google in regards to if there is a list on countries that do not require a visa.

Unsure if it's still upto date, but found the following site:


It lists many countries / specific areas which are visa free, or allow visa on arrival. Also includes the cost for V.O.A; as well as the valid period of time allowed inside listed countries.

Feel free to add to the list of either what countries require a visa, or not needing to apply.

You can use this site: to check if you need visa or not, how to get it, cost etc under multiple passport, travel nature, etc scenarios.

Note: Windows or some-one gives me a 'security certificate' warning when I go to it - don't know why. I use this site and Toll Visa services all the time

Worth noting that both Qantas and Virgin Australia provide inaccurate information regarding visas on their websites.

Qantas provides a link to an external provider who incorrectly tells you a visa is required for transit in China*. Virgin Australia completely omits TWOV as an option for China, advising you cannot travel without a visa.

Always best to refer to an official source such as TIMATIC and to carry a print out of TIMATIC if yuo are wanting to take advantage of certain visa waiver provisions.

*link to external provider currently seems down, but as of two months ago, the output from the link to IATA was incorrect.
