It very much depends on your residence and citizenship, and which visas you're applying for. So we can't write an answer for every single visa. I'll try to generalise. Often it requires that you send off your passport. So unless you have more than one passport (possible for some countries), you're clearly not going to be able to apply for more than one. ...

I have a Malaysian friend who did it. So yes it is possible. And he did not have any issues with the Malaysian authorities afterwards. I guess they couldn't know about his holiday trip. He took a flight to Jordan (a neighbor country) and from there drove to Israel with a car he rented. He even went to Gaza. I think he did that for the thrill, because he was ...

While there is no international legal agreement as to a specific altitude at which space begins, international law defines the lower boundary of space as the lowest perigee attainable by an orbiting space vehicle. The term "orbiting" implies unpowered flight, which given atmospheric drag means an altitude of around 150 kilometres. Alternatively, the Karman ...

Every country has the sovereign right to determine who it will or will not allow into its territory. This is irrespective of the views of the country which issued the traveler's identity documents, or any markings thereon. Therefore, the statement "Israel is not recognised by the Malaysian passport" is essentially meaningless. It is entirely up to the ...

Several Ifs involved here. If the plane just needs fuel, servicing will be done far away from the terminal building. No one gets off or on. If the plane pulls up to the terminal and passengers are allowed (or required) to get off, you have the option to not reboard. However: If the airport is domestic only, airport security will prevent you from leaving ...

Several people wished to disembark and were told no for several reasons. 1st was the fact that the airport we had landed at was a small regional one and had no immigration, 2nd was that the plane was the wrong size for the facilities available at ...

I think the solution to this puzzle depends on small, mountainous countries. Switzerland tourism claims that you can see 6 countries from Säntis: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France and Italy. http://www.myswitzerland.com/en-us/saentis-schwaegalp2.html

No. At an unplanned refuelling stop, the crew will be focused exclusively on landing, getting fuel on board, and taking off again. There will not be disembarkation services, including no jet bridge, no ramp bus, no barriers set up to guide you to immigration, etc. Unless there is a medical emergency, you're not getting off the plane.

I'll take a stab at answering this. The near-quadripoint works, you can see four countries. I've been there myself: http://babakfakhamzadeh.com/article/from-zambia-to-botswana-nearly-a-quadripoint But, there are a few more candidates. The Wakhan corridor (in Afghanistan, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wakhan_Corridor) is so narrow (8 miles at its ...

If you still haven't been yet, and you'll be passing through Bangkok I have had positive experiences working with Bangkok International Dental Center (professionally). They have lots of international accreditations (JCI, ISO) and also work with Straumann (really good Swiss dental implants) which is another testament to their high standards. Prices are very ...
