It’s understandable that the anticipation for the trip can be both exhilarating and nerve wrecking. However, if you are not properly prepared this experience can easily be nerve-wrecking rather than an exciting one.

When entering any country, the first place you experience the people and the atmosphere of your chosen destination, is the port of entry or designated border post.
