  • What was your source of this info?

  • Surely you're not visiting all 24 countries... why don't you simply go to the websites of the countries you're interested in visiting and confirm requirements directly?

  • Madrid_Ronaldo07, this website is a private company who assist people to obtain visas, so we cannot advise you if theses amounts are correct. They are ball park figures and should not be relied on. For example 30 Euro a day wont get you very far in Finland, as Scandinavian countries are very expensive.
  • If you're using those figures as reference for what you'll spend in those countries (as opposed to what Immigration might ask you) then yes, those numbers are mostly useless. You need to research a budget that's tied to your personal travel style and needs.

    Cheers,

  • Thanks Alethia & Terry :)
