Recently I learnt that Andorra has no visa restrictions to its visitors (citizens of any country) and free to enter if they hold a passport or EU national identity card.

Are there any other country(ies) which have similar no visa restrictions for its visitors irrespective of citizenship?

PS: Though Andorra has not restrictions, one need to have a Schengen visa with multiple entry as its a land-locked country and only be accessed via Spain or France.

Andorra is de-facto covered by the Schengen visa. You can't get there without passing France or Spain, so they can afford themselves not to bother. Monaco (which has its own sea access) uses French visas. – littleadv May 7 '12 at 9:02
Yes, read that in the wiki page. – Prashanth May 7 '12 at 10:57

The first country that comes to mind is the Republic of the Maldives. Indeed according to this link no visa is required. I expect this to be the case for most "paradise-like" destinations.

If a visa is needed, the best chance to enter visa-free is if you are a Scandinavian, since most countries allow Finns, Swedes and Danes to enter without a visa (source: Economist).

Vatican city doesn't require a visa to visit its public area, mainly piazza and basilica di San Pietro, and cappella sistina.

Entering its private areas is another story though.

Like for Andorra, you still need a Schengen visa to get to Rome.

Same for San Marino. – littleadv May 7 '12 at 9:06

See VisaHQ's page on this. Select your citizenship, and it will indicate the visa requirements (or lack thereof) for each country.

I checked that website and it says I need VISA for Philippines, which I don't if I stay less than 21 days.. (I'm Spanish). – SERPRO May 8 '12 at 10:54
@SERPRO See . You are correct, but the chart does not know how long you are planning on staying, so it is presenting you with at "worst-case scenario". – user82 May 8 '12 at 14:00
Thanks @Phoenix for the clarification +1 – SERPRO May 8 '12 at 14:05

Although governed by Norway, there are no restrictions for foreigners to enter, reside or work on Svalbard. As with most other examples here, the only practical way (except for chartered boats or flights) to get there is through Norway, for which you may need a Schengen visa.
