Another way to learn what you need to enter a country is by actually going to the country itself -- even if you haven't left the United States. You can find it at a mini-representation known as an embassy. The United States plays host to all types of country embassies. These places will tell you if you need a visa (or any other documentation) you would need to enter their country. The best place to go for a list of these embassies is the US State Department. They have a current list of every Embassy and Diplomat on file. If a US state Department is not within driving distance you can always surf. An up-to-date embassy list is located at www.state.gov/s/cpr/rls/dpl
