What are the entry and vaccination requirements for the destination country?

It is essential that you find out in good time (ideally immediately after booking) about the entry and vaccination regulations of the respective travel destination. Whether you or part of the group apply for a visa, or whether a vaccination appointment with the family doctor has to be made. 

You can obtain the necessary information from the Federal Foreign Office:


If a visa is required, you will receive the necessary information here:


If you need assistance with the application, please contact Intertours. 


Intertours can also issue you the electronic visa for Australia.  

For Canada and the USA, this must be done independently and at least 72 hours before departure. Please do not fill out the forms for a third party. If the electronic visa is still valid, you must update it before re-entering Germany.






You now need a biometric passport, also known as an e-passport, for many worldwide destinations.


And again and again travelers ask themselves when they have to enter the passport number: Is that the letter "O" or the number "0"? 

It's very simple, because for passport serial number only digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 and letters C, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, T, V, W, X, Y, and Z allowed. So it is never the letter "O", but always the number "0". 


Also consider taking out international travel insurance - Intertours will advise you individually.
