Do I need a visa to ..........?

Do I need a visa to ......? AKA If you are a British, Swedish, Danish or Norwegian citizen then you are the luckiest citizen in the world.  

VisaMapper Is A Magical Map Where You Can See Which Countries Require Visas To Visit.

The website is really helpful for the frequent traveler and could be also useful for researchers too.
The website is very simple. The moment you land on the home page of all you have to do is to chose your nationality from a drop-down menu, then the magic appear on the map.

Lets for example try and pick Syria from the menu

How does the world looks like for a Syrian Citizen

 There is seven colors on that map as descried in this legend
You can see how hard it is for a Syrian citizen to travel? Almost the whole world has become united against the Syrian citizen in terms of visa requirements. Every country has turned into maroon and I can assure you that visa will not be easy to obtain at all.

I have stated in a previous post "Introducing The Virtual Travelers" how hard it is for many of us to obtain a visas to a lot of countries. 

Now let's pick United Kingdom to compare the two results

What does the world looks like for a British Citizen

See? Totally different. Even those maroon colored countries will be more than happy to provide a visa for any British citizen.

That's why you don't see a Citizen from Syria traveling around the world much. Because he will spend half of his trip applying for visas and being rejected of course.
On the other hand a British citizen like Graham Hughes doesn't suffer from such complication at all. Graham is the British man becomes first person to visit all 201 countries... WITHOUT using a plane

If you are following my blog, then you should know by now how much I hate boarders and visas as I stated in a previous article named World Citizen

I wish all boarders and obstacles to disappear at once. Don't you wish the same?
