The ...

You can drive in Holland with a Dutch car, rental or borrowed as a foreign person. This unless you have valid drivers-license, The CAR is insured and it had his annual safety-check (APK). Just make sure you have an international driverslicense to get no problems or questions. I think it's even neccesary. A Dutch person is not allowed to drive a ...

You will need a visa. From the EU Immigration Website: Moving between EU countries during my long-term stay – more than three months When you stay in an EU country for a long stay, usually for more than three months, you will generally be issued with a national long-stay visa and/or a residence permit. If your long-stay visa or permit has been ...

Nepalese citizens require a visa to visit the UK. Having a residence permit from another EU/EEC country does not free you from any UK visitor visa requirements. A residence permit from an EU/EEC country may free you from transit visa requirements. I would however assume that a EU residence permit will ease the application process and make it more probable ...

The UK is not part of the Schengen-zone, but part of the Common Travel Area. To enter the latter you might need to get a visa, depending on your nationality.

The worse thing that can happen is having to pay for the treatment yourself, possibly at some inflated/non-regulated price.

Yes you do need one. As someone from the UK who had to use a doctor in Spain, you will be presented with an estimate of charges which you will need to pay by credit or debit card before treatment begins. The initial consult with a GP can cost several hundred pounds before any real treatment happens. I made sure we had EHIC cards as soon as we got home, and ...

No, you cannot enter the Schengen area only with a UK residence permit if you citizenship does not allow you to visit without a visa. A possibly source for the confusion is that a residence permit from a Schengen country (including most EU countries but not the UK) does allow the holder to visit other Schengen countries without visa. Another source for the ...

Your UK work permit is not valid to enter the Schengen area, also for short time. The exception for non-UE nationals living in UK is to hold a UK residence permit indicating "family member of an EU citizen".

The rules are explained on the official EU website. It sometimes difficult to understand how they apply to a given situation but the page should be authoritative. In your case, my understanding is that you do need a visa to visit other European countries. To understand why, you have to make a few distinctions. Assuming you are talking about a short stay, ...

The EU put out an app with a list of traffic rules in different countries and, under the “Other Specific Rules”, a list of safety equipment that might be required (including safety vests, warning triangles, fire extinguishers, and winter tires requirements). Unfortunately, it's short on the specifics, does not seem more comprehensive than other similar lists ...
