The country where the visa is obtained can be determined by what country 
it is in. Specifying this is redundant information.
The country where the visa applies cannot be found within OSM except by 
tagging it.

So I would tag the country/ies where the visa/s applies.

For the above example visa:country=GB  (not UK :) )

For country codes see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2

My wording could have been better...

visa:country=* (derived from the tag country=* where it exists)
