For most countries, a travel visa is stamped on, or affixed to, a travel visa page inside a passport.
If you are not a US passport holder, you must check with the consulate if they require a visa. If the country does, we'll send you your hotel list, flight itinerary (if applicable), and tour itinerary and invoice showing you've paid to travel to this destination.
The speed to process a travel visa varies for each destination country. VisaCentral can process travel visas for many destinations in as little as a day.
It's important to note that visa requirements and types vary by country. Some countries may not require a visa at all for short-term visits, while others may have specific visa categories based on the purpose of your visit.
