Most countries I've visited will give you a visa at the airport. Notsomuch with China and India.

What other countries require a visa prior to entering the country?

I've never been to a country that required a Visa so I don't know which Visas can be obtained at the airport vs. which you need a Visa beforehand, from the embassy or wherever.

I've been to Canada, Denmark, Austria, Italy, and Peru.

I think all european countries will allow you to get a visa at the port of entry.

European countries generally don't require a visa. Egypt will let you get one at the airport, and it's nice and cheap at $15. Most Asian countries require one before you leave. Former Soviet countries as well. Several of them require a signed invitation letter from a contact in that country, and most require a signed letter stating that you don't plan on staying there and will not become financially dependent on that country.

Of course, this all depends on your nationality.

Not only does Saudi Arabia require a previously arranged before entry visa, you must have a sponsor and you need to get an exit permit from the local police chief before you can leave.

Plus, if you have ever visited Israel, you might as well get a new passport before traveling to S.A. I've seen someone refused entry because of an Israeli passport stamp.

I've had pretty good luck with Mastercard and American Express all over the world.

I got a visa for Australia. Not sure if it was a full blown visa, since I just signed up online and paid the processing fee and that was about it.

VISAs all depend on the agreements the U.S. has with those countries. If a visa is required, most countries require that your passport expiration date must be valid for 6 months past your visit.
