Life is the journey, not destination. So, why don’t you travel more, why don’t you step out of your comfort zone? Work, money or fear? These travel checklist will help you feel less worried about your trip. So, let’s prepare and go!
- Passport (or ID Card)
Travel checklist call passport for the first. If you already have one, check its expiration date. Most countries won’t let you in if the expiration date is less than 6 months away. If you need a new passport, apply right away, don’t wait. Although we got ours in less than a month it has sometimes been known to take as long as 3 months to arrive.
In case you go to the country which want you to have visa (Not all countries offer visas on arrival. Depending on your nationality each country has different arrangements, and requirements can change). Waiting for a visa can take a month or more, so submit your visa application early and ensure it will be valid for your entire stay.
Remember you will go to the other land which is not your home, not near to your family, the brand new place with new things what you haven’t expected yet. So, just bring the “safe” for you first in your travel checklist, prepare all the needed medication in case you need. Also, if you are undergoing any special treatment, consider carrying a scanned copy of your records or a letter from your doctor detailing your treatment.
Look up the monetary conversion before you go. Make sure you do your math before you travel to get a sense of where the conversion rate is at. In case you use credit as a main factor, make sure your credit card will work in the country you’re visiting.
The secret tip for you in the travel checklist is the local cash. It should be better to have local cash. Not every place takes credit cards. Especially important places like trains or buses.
And finally, some where need you to pay the entrance/exit fees. Check the country’s entrance/exit fees. These fees are not included in the price of your airline ticket, and can range from $25 to $200.
- Electric devices
As my experience, the plugs and voltages can be different in different countries. So you should bring a charger adapter in your travel checklist. So if you want to use your iPod, make sure you can charge it. And next step is checking that voltage of your electronics. Try to activate your phone’s global capabilities. There’s usually a charge for doing this, but it is much less than the roaming charges you’ll get if you don’t.
