Information regarding visas is constantly in flux with countries sometimes changing their entry requirements at a fast pace and the practical info can be scattered across different websites. The information below is designed to help UK passport holders find out which countries they need a visa for and how much it will cost. If you spot any out-of-date or incorrect information, please let me know. The information is correct as of April 2020.
