I used a travel agency that took care of visa and passports for us. I'm wondering if they screwed up.Weird. I just double checked and I got mine back. Can't remember if I asked for it in the application?
Countries in the World: 195well over 170+. some have been renamed and i went back. looking to top 180 after covid.
Interesting and pointless debate. Does visiting the Cook Islands count as NZ?Countries in the World: 195
There are 195 countries in the world today. This total comprises 193 countries that are member states of the United Nations and 2 countries that are non-member observer states: the Holy See and the State of Palestine.
Not in the list
Not included in this total count of 195 countries are:
just go for em' all, you got nothing to lose at this point
- Taiwan - the United Nations considers it represented by the People's Republic of China
- The Cook Islands and Niue, both states in free association with New Zealand which are members of several UN specialized agencies and have been recognized "full treaty-making capacity", but are neither member states nor non-member observer states.
- Dependencies (or dependent territories, dependent areas, dependencies) and Areas of Special Sovereignty (autonomous territories)
- Other countries recognized by the United Nations as not being self-governing
Neither does visits to US military facilities - if you have seen one leased US military facility outside the US, you have seen them all - not much difference.Interesting and pointless debate. Does visiting the Cook Islands count as NZ?
You also have to clarify what counts as a visit. IMO airport transfers don't.
I have always wanted to visit Turkmenistan, but until now I had neither the time nor the money. Do you know if it is possible to get into Turkmenistan, in our current quarantine, or is it not possible?
