What is a visa?
A visa is a document that allows entry into the territory of a given country and allows a foreigner to stay in a given country for a specified period of time. You can obtain it at the embassy or consulate of the country you are going to.
Until recently, visas could only be obtained in person. Today, we can apply for a visa to many countries online, which greatly simplifies the entire procedure. You have to pay for issuing a visa, and the amounts are regulated by the regulations of specific countries.
