Based on Department Of State website, Most U.S. nationals, including dual nationals, must use a U.S. passport to enter and leave the United States. Dual nationals may also be required by the foreign country to use its passport to enter and leave that country. Use of the foreign passport does not endanger U.S. nationality. Most countries permit a person ...

Hungarian citizens do not need a visa for Canada. You could therefore choose to enter Canada as a Hungarian and ignore your US citizenship. It is not necessary to mention it to the border guards unless they ask. You will need an eTA if you are arriving by air after March of next year. US citizens do not always need a passport to travel to Canada. A birth ...

Yes, your ESTA is valid for up to two years, and you can spend up to 90 days at a time in the country. However, it's still up to the immigration officer to determine (at any time) whether or not you should be allowed back in to the country. So problems - not because of your ESTA, I did what you're describing back in July (went from the US (1 week) to Cuba, ...

It depends on your ticket and the airlines involved. Best bet is to call the originating carrier (your first flight out of Canada) and ask if they can check bags through to Bangkok. Based on your connections I would guess Delta/KLM which will allow you to tag your baggage all the way to Bangkok. If you are flying on a cobbled together ticket (multiple ...

They will let you know upon check-in. You can ask if the luggage will be checked through to be sure. Since all your segments are international, this is usually the case, although it sometimes depends on the particular airport. The bags will be tagged I2I which stands for International-2-International. You would only need to pass through customs in Canada ...

It might, it might not. It depends on the reason for the denial. All you can do is be honest. If at any point you are asked whether you've previously been denied entry, you need to tell the truth. If it's in paperwork, attach a letter explaining clearly the reasons for the denial. Don't blame the system or the government or whatever, just state the facts ...

As they are separate countries, you will indeed need two visas - one for Canada, and one for the US. You will need to apply for each one separately. As Algeria is NOT one of the countries eligible for the US Visa Waiver Program, you'll need to apply for a visa in advance - it's not possible for you to get one at the border. To get a visa, you'll need to ...

Unfortunately, through regularly scheduled means of transportation, flying is likely to be the cheapest option for you. Sites like kayak might help you reduce the price, and you can specify direct flights, skipping out the US. You can look at things like freighter travel, where you use a cargo ship to get down, but otherwise your only other 'hitchhiking' ...

One way car rentals tend to be limited to areas where there is regular demand for such rentals, and thus a good chance someone will return the car back to its original rental region. So you will see one way options within the continental US, but not Alaska to the continental US, as the number of folks wanting to do a one way car rental is extremely small. ...

Canada is a whole separate country from the United States, (and in particular there is nothing like Schengen) so yes, a bus ticket to Canada is sufficient to prove onward travel from the US. You are of course not required to use that ticket; if your travel plans change, you can always exit somewhere else, provided that you don't overstay. As for something ...

Unfortunately, the onus is on you to prove you purchased it in Canada before departure. CBSA has a section on their site called 'protecting your valuables' that covers this: If your laptop computer was made in Japan—for instance—you might have to pay duty and taxes on it each time you bring it back into Canada, unless you can prove that you owned it ...

No. See 13.18 for Canada - much the same applies for USA.

I did a multi-site search on Kayak, Hotwire, Priceline, CarRentals.com, rentalcars.com, Expedia for a ttrip between Anchorage and Seattle. All search results returned empty. Looking at smaller car rental companies in Alaska also failed to find any cars offered for driving to Seattle. It's not particularly surprising considering someone will have to drive ...

Speaking broadly, it is very hard to come by public lockers or other short-term options anywhere in the U.S., compared to Europe or Japan. Their elimination has been going on for some time, starting with concerns over illegal drugs and then terrorism— and fear of the associated legal liabilities. There are a few left luggage or "parcel check" services in ...

I have dual citizenship in the U.S. & Canada, and I live in the U.S. Since I have relatives on both sides of the border, I have flown and driven across the border more times than I can count, presenting my U.S. passport when entering the United States and my Canadian passport when I have entered Canada. I have never once run into a problem with this. ...

According to Visit Greenland, at the time of writing there are no ferries to Greenland from either Canada nor Iceland nor Denmark. Indeed Greenland doesn't seem to be an appealing market for inter-country ferries. The linked site nevertheless suggests hopping on a cruise that includes Greenland on its list of destinations, as these are becoming more and more ...

Hopefully you can get the mistaken identity fixed before your trip. Here's what you should do if it isn't fixed. Tell your bus driver that you may take extra time to process. Sit near the front of the bus. The driver will make sure you're one of the first people in line, so you'll minimize the delay on the schedule. Don't stress too much about being left ...

The government of Canada won't check your passport upon departure, so this is not a problem. Your airline will check your passport, but they just want you to hold a valid passport; they won't care what country it's from. You will, of course, want to have your Canadian passport with you for your return to Canada.

Beef jerky. This is truly an American thing. You can get different kinds of jerky: beef, antelope, deer, buffalo, elk. Elk might be your best bet, it's one of my favorites, and I think elk only exist in North America.

Maple syrup (or maple candies) is always a winner. Cheese can also be a good choice (needs to be vacuum sealed). Smoked salmon (buy frozen and wrapped in cloth in your checked-in bags). Wild rice is really nice. ...

Actually there is a simple thing you can do - get yourself a NEXUS card. As it says, it "allows pre-screened travelers expedited processing when entering the United States and Canada". While part of the expediting means you can use dedicated lanes at borders, a NEXUS card also shows border guards that you have already been cleared, and is evidence that you ...

If you're a Canadian citizen coming to visit the US by land, you can present any of the following documents: A valid passport; A valid NEXUS card; A valid enhanced driver license. (You can also use a SENTRI or FAST/EXPRES card, but unless you travel to Mexico a lot or are a commercial truck driver you aren't likely to have one of these.) If you haven't ...

A temporary visa for the US does not imply any sort of right to enter Canada. Canada, being a separate country, has its own visa policies. If citizens of your country would normally need a visa to enter Canada as a tourist, then you would also need a visa. A visit to Niagara Falls would not count as any kind of official government business.

It is possible, but it is not straight-forward. Canada's visa requirements for citizens of Pakistan state that you require a visa to visit or transit in Canada. If you do still decide to visit your friend, you will have to apply for a tourist visa. If you simply want to transit in Canada ( less than 48h ) then you can apply for a transit visa. Applying for ...
