From the ESTA Online Help: What if I have dual citizenship, but my non-VWP passport is expired or I do not have a passport for that country? If you have any additional passports, please enter the most recent passport information, even if that passport is expired. If you are a dual citizen but do not have a passport from another country, select the ...

Most people from countries that used to get visa on arrival in Turkey now have to apply for an e-visa and are advised to do so before traveling. This site has the information on the e-visa and who can apply. And this page has the information what kind of visa Australians need to have. Australia: Ordinary and official passport holders are required to ...

You will collect your bags at your first port of entry in the United States (LAX) and they will be subject to a customs inspection there. This happens immediately after you go through US Passport control. You cannot bypass this step by accident. After you clear US Customs, there is a place where you can drop your bag, a kind of mini check in desk. The bag ...

You will have to fill out a landing card each and every time unless you are a registered traveller. It's the law and there is no way to circumvent this requirement. Your other question is more interesting... You are directed to the 'other passports' queue because you do not have a British (or EU) passport and you want to join the accelerated queue for ...

Have you already received some official confirmation of your British citizenship? If so, you can probably enter with that, possibly in combination with your Australian passport. If you do not yet have official confirmation of your British citizenship, you have two options: Enter on your Australian passport and hope that the official determination on your ...

According to the webpage of Turkish Ministry of Foreign affairs "As of April 17, 2013, electronic visa (e-Visa) replaces “sticker visa” which was issued at the border crossings. Applicants just need to log on to http://www.evisa.gov.tr, provide the requested information, (after the application is approved) make online payment and download their e-Visa." ...

CBP is concerned that visitors to the United States do not intend to live in the US and are not likely to become dependent on public funds. Thus, when you enter, you should be able to show that you are departing the US (for Canada!) and that you have sufficient funds for your road trip. Be sure to tell the CBP officer that you are driving to Canada and that ...

A follow up to my prior note as requested. I emailed Home Affairs every week between March & May 2015 requesting that my overstay be waived due to valid medical reasons. I included all the required documentation from doctors & hospitals. I also included a cover letter to make it as clear as possible that my absence from my post as a Peace Corps ...

Today I went to the consular office of the Vietnamese Embassy here in Vientiane to ask them. Whether you want a one-month or three-month visa, the price is the same: $60 USD to pick up your passport after three working days. $70 USD for express service - pick up your passport the following day. I asked the staff there if the prices are the same at the ...

The general consensus on the web seems to be that you have three options: Go through a travel agent. Apply for a visa with the Chinese embassy in your home country. Go to Hong Kong and spend a few days waiting for the visa to be processed. According to this Chinese Forums post, going via a travel agency will involve shipping your passport to ...

Yes, you can, and you even have two options: Change the passport details attached to the airline ticket to use your Russian passport. You can likely do this online, or if not, give the call center a ring -- you will not be charged. Simply show up at the airport and check in with your Australian passport. When asked where your Vietnamese visa is, show ...

My American wife and I have joined the UK/EU queue may times and had confirmation from several IOs that it is ok to do so. The problem is that many UK airports employ private security staff to direct people to the right queue. It is usually with these staff that we have had to have an argument!

No. Australians are offered 3 months without a visa in South Korea. You being on a Chinese visa should hold no weight on your trip to South Korea. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_requirements_for_Australian_citizens#cite_note-118

For What information can I update? U.S. Customs and Border Protection has: Prior to submitting an electronic travel authorization application with the required payment information, you can update all application data fields except the passport number and passport issuing country. Once an application is complete and submitted with all the required ...

As an Australian, you will need a visa in order to make this trip. When you arrive in HCMC, you'll enter Vietnam in order to make the domestic flight up to Hanoi. In Hanoi, you'll then exit Vietnam in order to fly onwards to London. If you're returning to Australia via Hanoi and HCMC, you'll need a multiple-entry visa - or a second single entry visa if ...

Your strategy is fine on paper. As long as your visits to Schengen are in compliance with the cooling-off period, you will be able to 'legally' present yourself at any Schengen entry port and request leave to enter. The big caveat is that they are entitled to challenge you and can remove you if your case is not strong enough or they think you do not ...

Yes. The US does not have the same geographical requirements that many countries have, where applicants must apply at the consulate whose territory includes the applicant's place of residence. Even if they did, surely a global systems outage that lasts for several weeks would be sufficient ground for an exception. They may want you to show that you are in ...

It simply means that the governments of the two countries haven't arranged this yet. Often visa-free is bilateral - especially when done with a trade deal, but sometimes not. For example, Aussies can get a tourist visa for the UK on arrival, but UK citizens need one (an ETA) in advance to visit Australia! (at least, last I checked). By default, most ...

No, that isn't true. Vietnam doesn't operate a true "Visa on Arrival" system. In additional, all visas for Vietnam have a fee. Some nationalities can enter without a visa, paying nothing and being allowed to remain for 15 days, but neither of your nationalities s are included in that list. Your options for entering Vietnam are: Apply for a visa in advance ...

I ended up flying in the day before my passport expired, and then I asked the port officer what would have happened. She told me that they would give me a fine and a warning. How much of a fine, I don't know. But at least you could enter without too harsh a consequence in an emergency.

That's fine as far as the maximum stay rule is concerned. As long as you haven't been in the Schengen area more than 90 days in any 180-day period, you can leave and enter as often as you wish. But nobody can guarantee you will be granted entry indefinitely. It comes down to the border guards' assessment of the plausibility of your story. And the more stamps ...

To the best of my knowledge Cambodia Tourist Visas and eVisas are single entry only. But it is possible to transit in Siem Reap without entering the country, assuming you can have your bags checked through to Laos. Are you flying on the same airline or are you changing airlines?

Do citizens of the other "foreign" country require visas to visit New Zealand? That could raise questions if so. And even if not, the Immigration officer might want to know why you are doing it that way. There is no advantage to exiting with a different passport, as New Zealand does not stamp passports upon exit. So you won't get a stamp in the other ...

Vietnam visa fee reduce from 23 Nov 2015 (according to Circular 157/2015/TT) From 23 Nov 2015, Vietnam visa fee will be as below: - 1 month validity single entry visa & less than 3 months validity visa: 25 USD (instead of 45 USD) - 1 month validity multiple entries visa: 50 USD (instead of 95 USD) - Other validities from 3 months validity to 1 year ...

As I know, Vietnam transit visa is not required regardless of your nationality if transiting through Vietnam airports without crossing the immigration area. The transit visa is issued for tour escort accompanied by a tour guide. Source from http://www.vietnamvisa-easy.com/vietnam-visa-information/vietnam-visa-types.

I experienced this a couple of times within the last years (visiting to the US with an existing ESTA) and there were never any problems. Simply update the information you can update and simply leave the flight number as it is. I don't think it makes a big difference as there is always the scenario where you're rebooked by the airline to another flight on ...

Overall, this is seen to be abusive because you are attempting to get more leave than was issued to you (whether you intended to or not). The controlling technical reference for your question is found in Paragraph 30C of the Immigration Rules which says... An Immigration Officer may cancel an entry clearance which is capable of having effect as leave ...

Daily withdrawal limits at ATMs are set by your banks daily spend limit as well as ATM transaction spend limit. Open a Citibank debit account which has no overseas transaction fee on ATM withdrawals and use that whilst overseas. It won't solve your fixed fee imposed at the ATM but every little bit helps.

You may not need to go to Canada. There is an application to "extend or change" nonimmigrant status: http://www.uscis.gov/visit-united-states/change-my-nonimmigrant-status-category/change-my-nonimmigrant-status. There is a list of visa categories that are ineligible for this; E visas are not listed. See ...

There doesn't seem to be an issue with you taking a car from Vancouver and returning it in the US. Just did a search on Kayak picking up in Vancouver Airport and dropping off in SeaTac airport and the major rental companies are happy to oblige even though it's getting a bit pricey.
