Traveling Between Countries
Answer below question
Name: Johan Norén
I have traveled a lot but mostly to one or two countries at a time and then
back again. Now I wonder after reading your tremendous FAQ but not finding the
answer, do you have a lot of struggle to get visas for each country you travel
to? How long can you stay in each country (about) before having to get to the
next because of a visa running out?

This question is more easily answered by continent and under the assumption
you are from Western Europe, USA, Canada or Australia, the other countries of
the planet can mainly only travel on their continent easy. I am from the USA,
Sweden has about the same status.
Mexico, Central and South America normally at the border.
USA is difficult
Europe is funny, I think I could just move there and live, and never worry
again, I am just allowed in and sometimes I worry, do I ever have to leave?
Asia is 50/50 the poorer the country the more difficult. Go to Hong Kong to
get the visa to China and go to Thailand to get the visa to Cambodia, Laos and
so forth. South of Thailand is easy.
Middle east is generally easy.
Africa is a mess, and careful planning is needed on visa to travel by land,
but once you are here, and if you go slow, you can generally follow the path you
want to take.
India is before you enter, Nepal is easy.
Russis is difficult from the Mongolia side, easy from the Finland and Estonia
side, but still more complicated than some countries.
Satellite nations of Russian, I do not know them, I am told by Stellan a
bicycle person from Sweden, if I enter into Kyrgyzstan, I can move around and
continually get the visas.
Generally the minimum is 30, and normal is 60 days, the bigger the country,
the longer the visa.
I suppose what is needed is where to start.
Mexico to Argentina not important, but cheapest to start is Quito,
Middle East - Turkey
West Africa is Abidjan, Ivory Coast, or
Accra Ghana, or Morocco overland down.
Central Africa would be Ethiopia or
Asia is Thailand first, Bangkok is the center of
Nepal is easy, then enter India
Hong Kong or below Singapore
Look at this page and I have it saved as on my computer so I can study when I
to all the rules you read, there is almost always a way to enter a country, they
have a way, the rules of onward tickets, etc are very seldom enforced, this is
why to start in the above locations, and learn as you go.
