It is indeed a (national) collector's coin. It is legal tender in the country where it was issued, but not elsewhere in the eurozone. Even in its country of origin, I could imagine that many people would be surprised to receive one or perhaps even refuse to believe that it is genuine. And looking at the photos you can find on the web, I must say that their ...

Flight schedules get changed all the time, some flights get cancelled, others get added. There is no law against it and no compensation available simply because they cancelled a flight. As your flight is in the future, they have to give you a couple of choices: One you can cancel your booking and get your payment refunded; Two you can choose an alternate ...

Sort of. Every one sort of has roaming though, or per meg data charges. It's still got to be based somewhere. The closest I've heard of is Go Sim which has a 'Europe Sim' for this use case. Includes: a Europe SIM Card with $10 airtime We've got the SIM for you! Our all-in-one replug sim will work in any unlocked mobile device (including ...

You can't use the railpass to cross borders. The real meaning of their conditions got lost in translation. The Dutch version of the general conditions doesn't mention border stations, but border points (grenspunten). These border points are relevant in different reduction schemes (such as RailPlus). With a rail pass (or the cheaper GO pass for passenger ...

The rules are laid out in article 5 of the Schengen Visa Code: The Member State competent for examining and deciding on an application for a uniform visa shall be: (a) the Member State whose territory constitutes the sole destination of the visit(s); (b) if the visit includes more than one destination, the Member State whose territory ...

As of now, Romania is not a part of the Schengen area. Coming implementation should be in March, 2015. It is also worth mentioning that this is not the first implementation plan, other ones were delayed before, and it's also worth mentioning not to expect Romania to be part of the Schengen area by March as it is a long process. Regarding visiting Romania, ...

This is unsubstantiated. I worked in the UK for several years (IT worker) and met a few people who had worked in China (teaching English, among other things) and they had zero issues getting visas. It's one of those cases where you hear stories about visas (you hear a LOT from expats, it's just one of those things) and the rule is - until you see it written ...

I think that it means just what it seems to mean: You can't use a “Rail Pass” because those stations are not in Belgium and you can't use the RailPlus card either because they are explicitly excluded from its scope despite being across the border. On the other hand, the Belgian Railways do offer separate special fares for stations close to the border, which ...

It's very rushed as there are many things to see in these cities and transportation will cost you dearly relative to the time spent in each place but obviously I can also see why you would want to do that and I think it should be doable. Because you have so little time, the obvious choice between Frankfurt and Paris or Paris and Amsterdam will be the train. ...

You can visit Schengen following the expiry of a residence permit. The Schengen clock does not tick when you have a residence permit. It starts ticking when the permit expires (and at that point your 90 days will begin). I wonder whether days before a residence permit are ever added to those after to count towards 90 total? it's theoretical because a ...

Can I apply for schengen visa from the embassy of The Netherlands? Not only that but you must apply for a Dutch Schengen visa to go to the Netherlands (if you need a visa to enter the Schengen area, obviously). Romania isn't part of the Schengen area yet and cannot issue a short-stay visa that would allow you to travel to the Netherlands. Will it ...

This is not a total a Europe solution, but from the UK one might want to look at Three Pay As You Go "Feel at home" SIM Card. For 15 EU unlimited data for 30 days in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, and as a plus the USA. I'm leaving for Europe again Sunday and haven't actually tried it, but its ...

As Relaxed said, taking the train is probably a good idea. If you don't mind which order you visit the cities in, there is a sleeper train from Franfurt to Prague, it leaves at 00.54 so you could leave on the day that you finish work and arrive in Prague the morning after, advance tickets seem to be available at €49 in a seat or €60 in a bunk bed. From ...

If you have stayed on the residence permit for more than 90 days (or haven't stayed in the Schengen area immediately before starting the permit), you are fine, you can stay for another 90 days visa-free under regular short-stay rules. The time spent under a long-stay visa or residence permit does not count toward the maximum short-stay period. If you have ...

After reading the comments, I thought I'd summarize what was said as an alternative to Mark Mayo's solution. It seems that there is no solution that really stands out at time of writing and it all depends where you come from. Outside of Europe If you come from outside of Europe, it seems like Mark's solution would probably suit you best, as you can prepare ...

If you hold a multiple-entry Schengen visa or a residence permit, you should be able to visit Romania legally for maximum 90 days stay. Read carefully here: Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Quoting from that site (taken on 2015-02-17): Can I travel to Romania without a visa if I hold a visa issued by a Schengen Member State? The holders of ...
