Visa-free travel has experienced a rise and Visa on arrival choices have also grown for people across the world, according to the latest UN Tourism report. The study says, 21 per cent of the world population does not require any form of visa, a rise from 17 per cent in 2008 and 20 per cent in 2018.

In addition, 14 per cent of the world population can apply for visa on arrival, a rise from 6 per cent in 2008 and 15 per cent in 2018. Destinations' openness to foreign travel has returned to pre-pandemic levels following the lifting of COVID-19-related travel limits, says the study.

Due to the worldwide epidemic, new travel aid measures, such "nomadic visas", emerged as a result.

The study says that there has been a decrease in traditional visa conditions. Fewer people worldwide now require a standard visa to travel, going from 77 per cent in 2008 to 59 per cent in 2018, and then to 47 per cent in 2023.

The percentage of the global population qualified to apply for eVisas has grown to 18 per cent, a large increase from 3 per cent in 2013 and 7 per cent in 2018.

“The report gives insights on the growing landscape of travel  facilitation process. It contains the Tourism Visa Being transparent Index that assesses the degree to which locations assist tourism and how open a country is in terms of visa facilitation for tourist reasons.Also, movement scores are included to show to the extent to which people around the world are subject to visa policies, as well as an in-depth study of the equality of visa policies,” said UN Tourism.
