Travel topics > Concerns > Border crossing > Visa summary for EU citizens

This is a summary list of visa requirements for countries, designed to tell EU citizens where they can go without a visa, where they can get a visa on arrival and where they need to apply for a visa. Designed to be useful for people travelling round a continent wanting a simple reference document. Doing research into visa information for all nationalities is a mammoth task so this page is EU citizens only. Please note that different rules apply for certain territories for UK and Irish citizens.
