If you are planning to enter and cross the borders of multiple countries, you may be required to obtain a visa for each country. There are, however, numerous visas that permit travel to various countries.
You are fortunate if you have a passport that allows you to visit dozens of countries without restrictions. However, obtaining a visa before visiting a foreign country is a standard prerequisite for most travelers.
Fortunately, multiple countries offer visas that can be used to visit multiple other nations:
What are multiple travel visas?
Here are the visas that permit travel to multiple countries:
- Schengen Visa
- United States Tourist Visa
- United States Green Card
- Canada Visa
- United Kingdom Visa
- Central American Single Visa
- East African Tourist Visa
- KAZA Univisa
The Schengen Agreement comprises 26 European nations, called the Schengen area, that have eliminated visa requirements and border checks. Therefore, if you have a Schengen visa, you can travel between all countries that have signed the Schengen agreement.
However, many non-EU countries have also delegated the Schengen visa screening and will permit your entry if you possess a valid Schengen visa (i.e. you still have valid days and entries left on your Visa).
US Tourist Visa
The United States of America possesses one of the most secure passports in the world and apparently also one of the most secure visas.
You can enter Canada with a valid US visa, but only if you are a Brazilian citizen. Please note that you cannot enter Bosnia and Herzegovina with a US tourist visa if your passport was issued in Kosovo.
United States Green Card
The following countries and territories are visa-free for US Green Card holders:
Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Georgia, The British Virgin Islands, Aruba and Curacao, The Balkans, Singapore and Peru.
A Canadian Visa allows you to visit Canada and several other countries.
England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland are the four constituent countries of the United Kingdom. Therefore, if you obtain a UK Visa, you can travel to these four nations. However, in addition to these countries, a UK visa also permits travel to several non-UK countries.
Can you travel to Ireland with a UK visa?
Despite the name, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are two distinct countries. While a UK visa allows unrestricted entry into Northern Ireland, a separate visa is required for the Republic of Ireland.
Single Central American Visa
The Central American Single Visa, also known as the Visa Unica Centroamericana, allows the holder to travel between four Central American countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. The Visa is valid for 90 days maximum.
Visa for East African Tourists
Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda have launched a joint tourist visa to facilitate tourism between the three nations. The East African Tourist Visa permits you to visit all three countries for up to ninety days. However, the Visa is single-entry and will expire once you leave the country.
The KAZA Univisa
The KAZA Universa permits up to thirty days of travel between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
