How to find out if you need a visa to any country in the world

This information will be extremely useful to anyone who loves traveling, will help save time, nerves, money and sometimes unmistakably plan a flight route.
The following options are possible with visas:
1. A visa is not required to enter the country (for example, Kazakhstan, Vietnam, Montenegro, Turkey, Ukraine, South Korea)
2. To enter the country, a visa is required, which must be obtained in advance at the embassy in the territory of your country (for example, Schengen countries, USA, Britain, Canada, Japan, etc.)
3. A visa is required to enter the country, but it can be obtained upon arrival (for example, Dominican Republic, Egypt (for individual tourists), Iran, Tanzania, Ethiopia, etc.)
4. A visa is required to enter the country, but to obtain it you need to send an electronic form in advance (for example, Mexico, Australia for Ukrainians, etc.)
5. A visa is required for transit through the country (for example, UK)
6. To enter the country, you need either a national visa or a US / Schengen visa (for example, until recently, Croatia, Panama, Costa Rica).

All these options sometimes cause confusion and confusion, especially for inexperienced travelers who are going to go to a country that is not quite a tourist destination, where a visa is usually not needed.
The first thing they start to do is to shovel the Internet, sometimes encountering conflicting information, or contact visa agents, who also do not always have control of the situation or even intentionally make you use their services when this could be avoided.
In fact, there is a universal remedy that can clearly and specifically answer the questions: do you need a visa to enter or transit (and what vaccines are needed). Moreover, taking into account all the options of the country of citizenship, departure or intermediate transit. Transit is more about vaccinations, because to enter some countries you need to have a certificate of availability, for example, vaccinations against yellow fever. Moreover, if you arrive in Tanzania from Russia by transit through Dubai or Doha, the certificate is not needed, and if through Nairobi, it is required. In order not to get into an unpleasant situation on the passport and epidemic controls, you need to know exactly about all the requirements.
The service in question is called Timatic. This is a database containing information about documents required for passengers crossing state borders. As a rule, this database is used by airlines to determine whether a passenger can be accepted for transportation, as well as by airlines and travel agencies to provide this information to passengers during the booking process and purchase of tickets (this is extremely important for airlines because they have to pay significant fines if the passenger transported by the airline is not properly documented). In addition, it is used by land passport and border control at airports and land border crossing points.
Each person can check the necessary information on the Timatic website - https://www.timaticweb.com/.
True, there is one nuance, access to it is possible only for authorized users.
To facilitate access, many airlines have made it possible to access Timatic through their sites, where no registrations or anything else is needed.
Today, you can check whether you need a visa and vaccinations for entry into any country in the world on the KLM airline website, on the Quantas airline website.
Previously, this opportunity was also on the sites of the OneWorld and StarAlliance alliances, but currently there is no such possibility.
Using the search base is very easy.
You only need to carefully select the country of departure, destination and, if necessary, transit.
