Visa Requirements for Asian Countries

by Jason -- February 28, 2010

A Visa is a document that allows visitors to enter and travel within a particular country. Visa processes and requirements vary greatly. Because of this, researching each country can be a real pain. In order to help with at least a few countries, I’ve gone ahead and done the research for most countries in Eastern Asia. See below for the length of time you’re permitted to stay on a Visa and what the countries’ particular Visa process is. There are links for additional information for each country as well.

Note: This is unfortunately only applicable if you’re a United States resident and of course subject to become out of date as soon as this article is published. Thankfully, the US government keeps an excellent and hard to find website. Here’s an extremely useful link for figuring out Visa information for every country in the world: (Scroll half-way down and click “A-Z Country Index”)
