US Passport Visa-Free Countries 2022

According to the 2021 Henley Passport Index, the US passport is one of the most useful travel documents, coming in at number seven. Globally, the Henley Passport Index ranks nations’ passports based on their holders’ freedom while traveling.

Passports from the Czech Republic, Greece, Malta, Norway, and the United Kingdom round out the top seven.

US Passport Visa-Free Countries

Which countries do not need a visa for US citizens?

Visa-free travel will be available to residents of the United States of America in 185 countries and territories as of October 1, 2021. (though a few require a visa on arrival). If you’ve been in a certain country for a given time, you may be subject to more stringent regulations.

One of the essential things to remember while planning a trip to Europe is that US residents do not need a tourist visa to visit any of the EU’s 27 member nations, including the UK, which just departed the EU.

Countries where a visa is still required… and maybe something else.

It is customary for visitors to pay registration fees, exit taxes, and travel expenses when entering countries where visas are needed. For example, a visa is necessary to go to Russia, which may take up to three weeks to complete and cost $139 for a US citizen.

People who want to travel to several countries must be fingerprinted and photographed. The International Certificate of Vaccination is also required in Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Niger.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic in early 2020, this technique has grown more common.

Finally, some governments restrict travel based on a person’s past travel history. Israeli entrance and departure stamps in a passport may result in a denial of admission into Libya, Sudan, or Syria.

Citizens of the United States must get a visa to enter China. The trip dates, itinerary, and evidence of departure from China must be included in the application. In addition, the application must be typed and free of any modifications made by hand.

Visitors between 14 and 70 are fingerprinted when they arrive and leave the country.

What countries are restricted to American citizens?

US nationals are not allowed to go to North Korea, regardless of whether they have a visa. After a US student died after being freed from a North Korean jail, the travel restriction went into place in 2017.

There are serious consequences for breaking the laws, which include criminal fines and having one’s passport taken away from one. Passport holders from the United States must apply to the US government for a special passport validation to go to North Korea.

Before you go, do one last check.

Before embarking on a trip, examining the visa requirements of the country you want to visit is essential. It’s also a good idea to check out any travel warnings issued by the US Department of State for nations considered hazardous.
