The first thing to know about all-way stops is that they are used in low volume intersections. You need to know all the edge case rules about what if people arrive simultaneously but that isn't what you normally need to deal with. You also need to know that "at the intersection" means having reached the white line painted across the road at the same point as ...

If you enter Canada to visit, there is no difference between "a few hours" and "a few months". You would need to get the same permission in either case. It's unclear from your question whether you are a permanent resident in the US, and this makes a difference for entry into Canada. US permanent residents can enter Canada for a visit without any additional ...

In general, yes, you can - under a process known as "Automatic Revalidation". In short, Automatic Revalidation allows your existing visit to the US to continue if you have left the US to a neighboring country (ie, Canada or Mexico) and returned - even if your visa is no longer valid (which in effect, yours isn't as you've used your single allowed entry). ...

Officially the answer is no. The Truck Ferry doesn't quote any tolls for cyclists or pedestrians. Unofficially the answer is likely to be no either, as using this ferry doesn't appear to be a known method to cyclists on either side of the border. Your current options are: The Tunnel Bus, which requires the bike be disassembled and in a bike bag, and the ...

If you can enter a country, you can generally transit there without worrying about the destination and all other complex rules for transit (which only apply to people who cannot enter the country without visa). Since Canadian citizens can enter the UK for tourism and other purposes, they can also transit there without visa.

As I see it, you have three options. Option 1: Skype I like this option because all you need is a credit card and internet connection. You can make calls from your computer or a smartphone with the Skype app. Option 2: Calling card Two calling cards off the top of my head: CiCi and Vox. Note that to use this option, you will need a land line or ...

You will need separate permission to enter Canada, regardless of whether you have a visa for the US. This Government of Canada page will tell you if you need a visa, and what kind, based on your nationality and purpose of visit. In general you will need a visitor visa for Canada if you required a visa for the US, but there are exceptions.

You do not need a transit visa if you remain airside when you transit through Germany. Auswaertiges Amt (the Federal Foreign Office) publishes a list of countries whose citizens require a transit visa, and Egypt is not on it. In addition, holders of a valid Canadian visa or permanent resident card do not need a transit visa at all. If you must leave the ...

As @AriBrodsky said in his comment, if you are departing Canada from one of 8 airports that have United States border preclearance which are staffed by US Customs and Immigration officers, your luggage may be cleared all the way to your final destination. If you are not departing from an airport with these preclearance procedures implemented, then you will ...

I found a decent ticket, 12 hours, direct from YVR to NRT, for $1200 CAD. Thinking I should snatch that up. $1,200 CAD should be considered a reasonable round-trip price from North America to Japan. Sometimes you see lower (though rarely below $1000), and sometimes much much higher. I would say that is around the average price these last few years, ...

If I was a customs officer and I saw one person has a visa to stay, and the other does not but bought a one way ticket I would most certainly assume that person planned to stay. And in fact, she does. Don't start your time here with a lie. Call whoever is processing her visa and ask what to do. She may have to change her flights and stay back until the ...

Actually your first concern will be the airline, as rules require them to make sure you have the correct documentation to enter Canada BEFORE they let you on the plane. It is entirely possible that they could prohibit your girlfriend from flying. Once you get to Canada, it is a crap shoot, they may simply take her word that she is visiting only for a few ...

The green / red is an indicator that it is your turn to approach the window to speak with the agent. When you approach the border you are supposed to stop outside the booth lane, then proceed to the window on green. Not sure about the "right", as I have never seen that light before. I would guess that it means go to the right lane (by the small booth ...

Getting into Canada is pretty easy, eh. Getting back into the States is harder, and Canada won't let you in without the ability to get out. You will need either a passport, enhanced driver's license, NEXUS card etc. Check any airline's website for details. You will also need proof of ownership of the car. If it's yours, fine. If it's your parent's, it's ...

I got all of this from here How to Handle Four-Way Stops: The Dummies Guide The simplicity of the four-way stop can easily be shown in these few key concepts. A four-way stop is any intersection with a stop sign in each direction, a flashing red light in each direction, or a broken traffic light should be treated as a four-way stop normally would. ...

Officially if entering the US via land border then you do not need an ESTA, however you are still able to use the Visa Waiver Program as you come from a country that is allowed under the Visa Waiver Program. At the border you will be required to fill in a I94W form, be photographed/finger-printed, and pay a US$6 fee. There have recently been reports that ...
