Many countries do not require exit visas; a few that do are Cuba,Russia, Belarus, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Travelers should be thoroughly familiar with a foreign country's entry and exit requirements before attempting a visit.

Generally, business visitors with commercial visas are required to obtain exit visa before leaving so that the local government can verify that all taxes were paid on income earned in the country.
