20 Best Countries in the World with Easy Visa Policy for Any Nationalities

When traveling, we always want to go somewhere without a hassle so that we could enjoy our vacation. If we have get-together international friends or your partner from another country, it’s easy to choose if that country has an easy visa policy. We don’t want to get stressed out gathering documents like bank statements, employment certificates, so it’s better to go with the ones we can quickly enter at.

Countries with Easy Visa policy are mainly visa-free countries or visa on arrival countries. Visa on arrival means that you get a visa when you arrive at a specific port for free or for a fee without much documents required.

Here are the 20 best countries that any nationality or almost everyone can visit:
