Howdy folks,

Is there a public website where I can find the latest visa requirement for a country? i.e.the system which airlines use at check-in counter to verify visa requirements for a particular nationality to a specific country.

In this case Indonesian visa requirement for Indian passport holder. From August 1st 2005, Indonesia gives visa-on-arrival to Indians, so want to make sure airline systems reflect this recent change and I am not sent back at the counter!


PS:Edited to add - called airline reservations and they are not sure, hence the post.

Delta has a pretty nice website that ask you where you are from, connecting country and fianl destination and tells you what you'll need.....also try searching for the countries embassy/consulate as they probably list the requiremnts to enter that certain country or connect throguh it
