Permits for Passing Through (or around)

If one is cruising say from Florida to Barbados, how many places would they have to get a cruising permit? Now I understand that this is rather arbitrary, so another way to ask is... Do I have to stop in every country that I come close to and clear in etc.? (There are quit a few fron here to Barbados or Panama for example) Is there a international distance that needs to be kept away form the land?

I like to travel, and not necessarily set foot on a country but just pass through or around, and clear in when I need fuel or provisions.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a world citizenship... were everyone got along and shared language, culture, waters and land...

If this has been discussed elsewhere please let me know (with a link)

Re: Permits for Passing Through (or around)

Generally speaking, you have a "right to innocent passage*", and neither have to clear in, nor stay outside of National waters.

* referring to a ship or aircraft's right to enter and pass through another's territory so long as it is not prejudicial to the peace, good order or security of the other state.

See Article 17 ➥ UNCLOS - Table of Contents

Who's language and culture?
You're not sharing my land & water; but I'm willing to share yours.
