    mustn't; can't

    Which one is supposed to be right?

    (in an extract from a guidebook to Thailand:)

    Visas
    ...
    You mustn't / can't enter the country without one.

    I would say "you can't..." because that is a fact. "You mustn't..." suggests that you CAN enter Thailand without a Visa, but it's 'naughty' to do so - the Thai authorities will slap your wrist (or worse) if they catch you. I don't think that is the sense intended.

    Yeah, you can't is the correct one.
