If you are actually carrying (including your checked luggage) more than $10,000 Canadian in cash or certain bearer-type instruments, then you should pro-actively declare it. The country you are leaving (and possibly other countries you are traveling through such as the US) may have similar regulations, which would usually be in their own currency, of ...

Is this a problem? Will they ask me at the airport how much money I have on me? Can they access my visa application and ask why I didn't bring as much as I promised? No, it's not a problem. Maybe but only to check you don't carry more than 10K in cash which you'd need to report. Access, I believe yes but that's likely to be not relevant. Bring? Noone ...

There are two reasons why they asked you this question. One is that they want to be sure that you have enough money for the time that you'll be in Canada and enough to leave as well... Then the second one is that there are some limitations in the amount of money you can travel with. For instance, if you had indicated that you would come with 1 million CAD, ...

Few options for you in situation : 1/ Call the airline directly. They might be able to make a phone booking that will allow bypassing this online booking issue. 2/ Use a 3rd party website to perform the booking that also won't have this kind of problem. I would really discourage you to input wrong details for the sole purpose of going through the booking ...

I have flown into Manchester many times. Sometimes it take forever to pass through immigration. From my experience it depends on what day of the week and time of the year. In summer, it will take longer for obvious reasons. Also, if you are not a EU citizen it will take longer to pass immigration. With regards to baggage collection, Manchester is pretty ...

I made a connection of 55 mins OF VIE-AMS-DOH at AMS in Dec, 2015. First leg was 10 mins late, I was on last row, so last to deboard. No checked in luggage. As soon as I hit the ground, started running towards new gate. I used the priority immigration lane, then again ran. Made to boarding counter @ gate just 5 mins before they were going to close it. Both ...

I flew through Schiphol (from Kuala Lumpar) last year with 45 minutes transfer time. I managed to make the connecting flight with 20/15 minutes to go, however my bag did not make the flight. luckily, I was heading home and my bag was delivered to my house the same day. I found transferring from one gate to another quite frustrating due to the long walk ...

From my own experience, if things go reasonably well you are likely to get to your next connection in time. Sometimes airport/KLM staff waits in front of your flight to help you get to your connecting flight. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about your luggage. Schiphol seems to be particularly slow with handling luggage, so there is a much greater ...

If KLM allowed you to book this as a single itinerary rather than two separated tickets, then you are covered. If you miss the connection, they will have to find a solution for you with another flight. Then you need more to think if you are ready to be delayed if you miss the connection. In theory, 55 minutes should be enough but there is no room for any ...

Simple, you walk. The distance between the two terminals are only about 100m apart.

You will pass through customs and immigration when you first land in Canada. There is also passport exit control when you leave Sweden. In London there is no customs and no immigration for international-to-international transit passengers, although you will go through a security screening.

Duty is not the same as sales tax. Sales tax is a local, city burden on a business and varies from type of business, type of item, value of item and the state you are in. A duty (more specifically customs duty) is a federal restriction and this applies universally across all borders of that country. So - it is perfectly fine to buy an item with a sales tax ...
