The Most Difficult Countries in the World for Americans to Visit

An American passport can get you to many countries in the world — but not all of them. Many countries allow Americans to visit without even obtaining a visa. (A few even let you in without a passport.) But some countries make it very difficult for Americans to visit, even if they have a valid passport and wait out the visa application process. And others will flat-out deny your application for a visa if you come from the United States.

Read on to discover the countries that make it the most difficult for Americans to visit.

Russia may be a pretty difficult country for Americans to visit, but that hasn’t stopped record numbers of Americans from traveling to the country. Travel + Leisure reports that despite tenuous political relations between the U.S. and Russia, demand for U.S. tourism to Russia is growing. However, it will take you lots of time — and lots of questions — to get a Russian visa.

The Atlantic reports, “While most of the rest of the world’s peoples can apply for a visa to Russia using a simple single-page form of 21 questions, U.S. citizens must use an arduous ‘new form implemented on the basis of reciprocity’ that has 41 often-intrusive questions. “
