    ***************You need to post your citizenship details.It seems to me you are Indian citizen and you will need visa for France, UK

    If you have Indian citizenship and got US GC then for Canada, Mexico and Switzerland you don’t need visitor visa. Wait for other members reply

      Assuming you have an Indian passport, the UK and France will exempt you from a Transit visa but not a visitor's visa.

        Assuming you're an Indian passport holder, with a US Green Card, you won't need tourist visas for Bahamas, Mexico, or Canada.

        You'll need tourist visas for UK and France (you don't need transit visas for these countries).

            For Switzerland, you don't need visitor visa. But other countries in Europe need the visitor visa.

                  I don’t know if that is true I was reading on one site that Indian passport holder CAN enter Canada from US without Visa but if Indian passport holder with US GC takes Flight to Canada from India then he/she needs Canada visa. It was posted on britishexpats.com. I don’t think that info is true and I have not done research for that .

                    Am I in trouble?

                    I hold Nepali citizenship and I have green card but on the greencard, it says my country of birth is China. Is this problematic considering the fact that I'm going to Nepal this summer and already purchased the ticket

                      Problematic for whom? If you hold a valid Nepali passport, that is all you need to enter Nepal since they should not care about your GC. If you think the place of birth was written in error on your GC, you can file an I-90 to correct the error. However, I do not think this mistake will somehow affect your travel plans.

                        Wrong thread to ask the question.

                        Switzerland is not visa-exempt solely based on having a GC anymore.
