We kindly remind our guests that it is their responsibility to ensure they meet all necessary travel and entry requirements for their destination. Please note that vacation properties are unable to offer refunds in the event of any such complications. Thank you for your understanding.

  1. Passport Expiration Check- The first thing you should do prior to booking a vacation rental is to check the expiration date of your passport. Please note that select destinations may require that your passport does not expire within 6 months after your travel dates. This requirement is intermittently invoked.

  2. Travel Visa - A travel visa is a document issued by a foreign country that allows you to enter the country for a specific period of time. Some countries require a travel visa, while others do not. The type of travel visa required will depend on the purpose of your visit, such as tourism, business, or study. VisaHQ is a helpful website to reference Visa requirements.

  3. Entry Requirements - In addition to a travel visa, some countries have entry requirements that must be met before you can enter the country. This can include things like a passport with a certain amount of validity, proof of onward travel, or a vaccination certificate.

  4. Check for Requirements - It's important to check for any applicable travel visas and entry requirements before you book your trip. This will give you time to obtain any necessary documents or vaccinations before your departure date. You can check for requirements by visiting the website of the embassy or consulate of the country you plan to visit or by using a third-party website, such as the International Air Transport Association's Timatic service.

  5. Research - It's important to research the specific travel requirements for the country you plan to visit. Requirements can vary depending on your country of citizenship, the purpose of your visit, and the length of your stay. Some countries may require a visa application, while others may offer visa-free entry for a limited time. Make sure to read up on the requirements to avoid any issues when entering the country.

Checking for travel visas and entry requirements is an important part of planning any trip abroad. Be sure to research the requirements for your specific destination and plan accordingly. By doing so, you can ensure a smooth and stress-free travel experience.
