Aas long as you leave a country with the same passport that you entered in on, then you're ok. So: Option 1: Entering Aus on Aus passport, leaving on Greek = bad Option 2: Entering on Greek, leaving on Aus = bad Option 3: Entering and leaving on Greek passport = good Option 4: Entering and leaving on Aus passport = good The reason being for counts and ...

I'm sorry, but you've screwed yourself well and proper here. Not only have you been refused entry three times in a row, which means that any future visa applications will be treated with extreme prejudice, but you've now illegally entered the United Kingdom as well. To expand on that last bit, just because there are no border controls between Ireland and ...

Definitely you should use your Australian passport in Australia and Greek passport in Greece (because for these countries you are their citizen and they don't really care if you have a dual nationality). And as others have said it's safest to use the same passport to enter and exit the country. However, in many countries the police would not check your ...

A few searches through this site will discover pairs of countries that don't like to see each other's stamps in your passport. If you plan things right, you can use separate passports to make this less of a worry for you. For example you might use one passport for Israel and the other for all the countries that might not like seeing an Israel stamp, or whose ...

From the US Embassy in Australia: http://canberra.usembassy.gov/resources/all-faqs/travel.html#license An International Driving Permit serves as proof of validation of your Australian state license and as another form of photo identification. However, you must also carry your Australian state license. Some rental car agencies require an ...

I'm an Aussie and have hired cars in the U.S. without having an international driver's license without any trouble. I was barely 21 at the time and I was told that I wouldn't have been able to hire it if I was any younger but the Australian license wasn't an issue at all. That being said, the international drivers license is really easy to get (I got mine ...

Since last year's unpleasantness, Bahrain has hiked its visa fees way, way up: USA, Canada and UK visa fee: $228.00 For all others, visa fee: $270.00 (Applicants from 35 countries) However, this is only for long-term tourist visas over 2 weeks. Most nationalities can still obtain two-week visas on arrival and advance e-visas for a considerably ...

As usual, the definitive resource for this kind of information is the embassy of the country you want to visit in the country where you are a citizen of, in your case the embassy of Ukraine in Australia. Its visa requirement page, as is common, doesn't have all the information you want. You do need a visa to enter Ukraine, either a tourist visa or a transit ...

I quote from WayToRussia: It is only possible to apply for a Russian visa in the country that you are a national of or in the country where you have a residency permit valid for longer than 90 days. This means that if you come from an EU country, you can apply for a Russian visa in any other EU country, because you are entitled to permanent ...

Yes, tampering with the passport is illegal. Post-it notes for obvious reasons not, as you say. If you alter the information in your passport, then you do something wrong. If the stamp on your Cambodian visa is not 100% on the sticker but also partly on the page, it will be even more apparent. This guy here got caught with it. After all however, it seems ...

There is no international authority that sets any such limit, nor one which would have the ability to enforce it. But for most people, it is not practical to maintain too many multiple nationalities. Most countries frown upon multiple citizenships, and place some restrictions on it, at least on paper. Some countries, like Austria, only allow dual ...

As long as you leave and enter on the same passport it is fine... for instance I have a South African and Swiss passport. Leave and enter SA on my SA passport and enter and leave Switzerland on my Swiss passport. No hassles! It does seem weird but for all the country cares you haven't left an airplane the whole time!

Be exceptionally polite : ) It did the trick for us. We applied for a Russian single entry business visa in Mongolia, with a Dutch passport. I kept my mouth shut and my girlfriend did the smiling and talking. And no, I'm not talking about a bribe. Paying money to get things done is something, I feel, should never be encouraged.

I think the question is fine, and very valid. As a New Zealander, when I went in 2008 it was required to get an invite from someone in the Ukraine - easy to get, just google for Ukraine invites. Once you have that, you need the visa, where you have to present your invite too, as well as an itinerary (that you're not held to). If you do get in, and can ...

The French Consulate web site says the working holiday visa takes an average of 2 weeks, but 1 week is generally ok. We have an applicant of our Ski Jobs France program applying tomorrow, so will let you know the latest processing time. The quickest time this year has been 3 days, but it does vary.

Here's the official announcement from the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Avustralya vatandaşlarına sınırda vize ücreti. There's no reason given for the increase. In the warnings for Turkish citizens travelling to foreign countries, I don't see anything about visa rates for Australia having gone up, whereas there are announcements about changes for ...

Diplomatic protocol requires that nobody ever explain the reason for anything directly, but I can only presume it's tit for tat, as Turkish citizens wishing to visit Australia have to fork out A$110 for a tourist visa. Australia last year announced that much cheaper ETAs (A$20) are now available for Turkish diplomats and special passport holders, but ...

I have dual nationality (UK - Australia), and I always show both on departure. This stops them getting worried that they will have to deny me access to the flight because of visa issues. They should still only use one of them (the 'local' one) for their record keeping though. On arrival I just show the local one as that is less hassle for everyone.

Oh I know this pain. As a citizen you can presumably count as a permanent resident (as you've not officially emigrated to any other country) of Australia, meaning that you could look at the policies of World Nomads Travel Insurance. I used them during a similar period in my life (Kiwi here).

I googled your question and found some websites (listed below), that contain general information regarding visa for the ukraine. You might find your answers there. On a dutch website, I also found an advice to ask ukraine travel questions on an expat forum specifically for the Ukraine http://www.travel-2-ukraine.com/visa-support/ ...

According to this information (this is up to date site), Australia is in list of countries, citizen of which can stay in Georgia from 90 to 360 days. This information also is on official site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia (as @hippietrail said already): List of the countries whose citizens do not need a visa to enter and stay on the ...

I turns out the Australian website is out of date or just plain wrong. It turns out that the Georgian government website says just the opposite: List of the countries whose citizens do not need a visa to enter and stay on the territory of Georgia for 360 days ... Singapore Australia Monaco ...

Australian Citizens do not require a visa when entering South Korea as a tourist. However, since around 2001 Australian citizens do require a visa when entering for business purposes. A good source for visa requirements is the Star Alliance Website. For South Korea you will need to select "Korea (Rep. of)"

The first thing a traveller in trouble should do is contacting their embassy/consulate. As you are in Glasgow now, the next Consulate is in Edinburgh: Mitchell House 5 Mitchell Street Edinburgh EH6 7BD Tel: +44 131 538 0582 Unfortunately it is an Honorary Consul (meaning that he isn't really paid for his job and has very limited rights, so do not expect ...

There is no limit, in theory or practice. This thread on Flyertalk mentions several people with five citizenships, posits a case where a child born to a couple with three citizenships each would easily get 7, and goes on to speculate that with the right sets of parents it would be possible to acquire more than 9 at birth plus any more you'd care to ...

No us Aussies don't need anything special for South Korea if we're just tourists. I'm Australian and in the past 2 years or so I've popped in and out of Korea about seven times I think and the process is perfectly painless. I believe we get ninety days and another Aussie sitting next to me who's just been there also recalls it as ninety days.

According to a study by Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) - (yeah I wouldn't trust that source either, but at least it's published), Russia is the most expensive visa to achieve. Note that this is for UK nationals, but it's a start. The former Soviet country charges £115 for a standard entry visa, with costs soaring as high as £220 for an “express” ...

About 4 years ago I received a Ukrainian visa from the embassy in the Netherlands (I'm Australian). They even did it super fast as I didn't have much time. There is a train from Romania to Odessa that passes through Moldova. For $20 you can get a transit visa for Moldova (at the embassy in Bucharest) within an hour or so.
