If you are not a citizen, you can refuse to answer stupid questions, provided you don't mind being denied entry, flown home immediately at your own expense, and possibly having a much lower chance of being able to enter in the future. Otherwise, you need to answer the questions; countries are generally under no obligation to admit non-citizens (EU stuff ...

The answer depends on 4 things: How you are getting to the airport What airline you're flying with How frequent the flights on that route are How good your travel insurance is If you have great travel insurance, are on a route with one flight roughly ever hour, and are just hopping on the tube for 20 minutes to get there, then arriving just before you're ...

Schiphol is well equipped for travel in a wheelchair. Most flights have level entrance and where there are stairs there are also lifts you can use. All the ones before boarding without needing to wait for staff. When needed there are lifts for those planes where most people walk up stairs, (but I guess a flight to Willemstad will not use bus transport to ...

At the end of the day it is your responsibility to make sure that you have the required Visas/etc for the country you are travelling to. However it is the airlines responsibility to check that you at least appear to meet the required entry requirements, which would include having a visa for the country, or a passport from a country that does not require a ...

I have encountered travelers flying from Japan to the USA, to go fishing in Alaska, that were bringing their rod cases onto the plane as a carry on. So yes it is possible to do so on international flights (hundreds of folks fly with rod cases as carry on within the USA and Canada). But I think the final decision, in your situation, will be Hong Kong ...

A Quick googling tells us that you should be able to carry your fishing rod with you AS LONG AS it is properly packed (at least a pvc tube with screw caps, or better a proper fishing rod case ). AND be ready to check-in your fishing gear if for some reasons they do not accept it, so mark it as fragile and "handle with care" with some visible "fragile" ...

Even if there is no regular immigration check when travelling between Schengen countries, German alien law requires you as a non-EEA citizen to have a valid passport when entering Germany, also when crossing an 'open' border from another Schengen member state. Since Netherlands is one of the main sources of illegal drugs and narcotics in Germany, I have the ...

The only problem you can have if you will stay more than 28 days inside the Schengen Area. You can back to Tunisia from France or another Schengen country with the same or a different airline, but because your visa was issued by Austria, it's better that Austria is part of your trip. In addition take with you a printed copy of your return ticket details ...

Firstly traveling in a wheelchair is a lot better than with crutches, the crutches can be fixed to the back of the chair and then taken on the flight to use mid-flight if needed. There may be time where you need to stand for over 30 minutes with nowhere to sit in an airport. You need to inform the air line ideally at time of booking the flight. However ...
