EBook Review: The Visa Book

I recently had an opportunity to review The Visa Book by Christine at Almost Fearless.  This is a super handy Ebook for Americans who do a lot of traveling.  The book has information for Americans on Visa and visitation rules for pretty much every country in the world.  Going to Spain - no Visa required since it's part of the Schengen Agreement.  If you're visiting 1 country you don't need this book, everything in the book is available online.  But, if you're frequently visiting several countries a year, or planning a long extensive trip, this book will save you a lot of time and energy, which may be worth more then $10.

Quick facts:  
  • 253 pages
  • pdf instant download
  • covers over 200 countries and territories  
  • Only for US citizens (although there may be Australian and European versions in the future)  
  • New editions will be produced every year
  • Does not cover long term residency visas, work visas or education visas (in other words, this is for tourist visas only)
  • Cost is $10
60% of the countries of world do not require a visa for American passport holders.  But which ones?  Online information about visa rules are often incorrect and outdated -- and almost never cite their source.  The Visa Book gives you all the rules in one place, perfect for planning your round-the-world trip or brainstorming about your next vacation.  The best part?  We directly quote and link to the Department of State and Embassy website (when available) so you can double-check our data!  The Visa Book
