    No Visa for Entry

    Antarctica is not formally under the control of any one country. The continent also is not a country on its own. That is why it was agreed in the 1959 Antarctic Treaty to make the area neutral and not accept any more claims to the area. This basically leaves the frozen continent a visa free zone.
