Housesitting visa is merely a produce of gossip

While you may hear gossip in the housesitting communities that mentions a housesitting visa as certification to access any country, this is not the case. There is no housesitting visa. You must check where you are headed and the requirements for your particular passport to enter that country.

However, you need to check with your local embassy if this information doesn’t answer your questions. There may be additional paperwork you need to complete ahead of your trip. While you are working as a housesitter remember through Housesitmatch you are not getting paid. We only facilitate an unpaid exchange of services between housesitter and homeowner.
