What is a Visa?
For traveling to some countries, you need to have a visa stamped or added to your passport when entering a foreign country legally. A Visa is a permit added to your passport in the form of a stamp or label for being allowed to travel to or to enter a foreign country. This valid permit must be shown to immigration officials at border posts on the country’s borders, or the airport, or port, all will be put into your passport by the immigration officer on arrival.
You cannot enter a country without a visa, i.e. the country’s official permission to let you enter.
Why do visas exist?
Each nation wants to control and record the number and identity of people who visit the country, who can work, and who can travel freely within its borders. This measure is carried out to protect the countries and their citizens against terrorism and crime, and to provide due security to its people. Some countries have on-the-spot Visa where there is no need to apply for a Visa in advance. You get a Visa stamp on your passport when you reach the destination country, mentioning the date of your entry into that country. Most of the countries that allow on-the-spot Visa do so with their motive of promoting travel in their country because income from foreign travelers is one of the main sources of their national income.
There are two types of visas:
1. A single entry visa allows travelers to enter a country only once within the date specified in it.
2. Multiple entry visa that allows travelers to enter a country several times within a specified time without applying for a new Visa every time again.

So once you are at your destination’s airport, offices on this path will check if all your documents are in place and then let you enter the country. The same holds for the departure country’s airport.
