Tourists generally don't need visas to visit other developed countries, but there still are some places where visas must be obtained in advance.  My firm uses a visas service, "G3," for information about visa requirements and to obtain visas for us.  There is a charge, but the alternative is waiting in very long lines during the short hours each day that consulates are open for visa applications.
