Business trips to foreign countries can provide exciting opportunities to expand your business while exploring the world – provided you’ve secured the proper paperwork to get there. A number of countries require Americans to obtain business visas to enter the country on a business trip. Business visas may be good for a single entry or multiple entries, with expiration dates that range from one month to one year, depending on the destination. They can also be incredibly quick and easy to get with Swift’s expedited visa services.
Below is a shortened list (not all countries listed) of countries that require a business visa for American travelers. You can also check for any updates and additional details on your specific destination at the U.S. Department of State website.
