Turkey is listed by Air France as one of the countries requiring this type of information. The Air France list is slightly different from the Wikipedia list (itself based on an info page from Air Canada) but the latter does not claim to be comprehensive (“these countries include […]”). I guess this is called “APIS” by analogy with the US system and other ...

In the first step you would take the email you received to the police and tell them your story. If the police in your country are looking for someone and you provide them with a good reason to believe an absconded person is in France, they will know what to do. There is a global computer network connecting police departments in participating countries; ...

If you are thinking about Lascaux cave, you actually visit a replica of the cave, not the actual cave itself. But you really can't tell the difference. At the tourist office in Montignac you can buy tickets in advance, though it is limited to just a day or two ahead. So you could go buy the tickets, while your family does something else, then head to the ...

The only significant restriction I know of is that you must enter the US with your US passport (there may be a restriction by the country of issue of your EU passport, but probably not). Therefore you need to carry both passports. It doesn't matter which passport you book your outbound flight with, but it's probably a good idea to book your flight back to ...

I had to do the same thing. I just walked into a couple of cell phone stores in Paris - Vodafone etc and asked a young person (many of them speak English) for a prepaid SIM card that included 1GB of data. Ask them to set it up for you. English wasn't perfect but it worked. 99% of international airports have cell phone stores and more often than not have ...

As Tor-Einar Jarnbjo correctly pointed out (+1), Schengen visas cannot generally be obtained from within France (or, in fact, anywhere in the Schengen area). It's sometimes (but not always) possible to apply for a residence permit from within a Schengen member state. In France, there are some exceptions (and as a PhD student, you might qualify for one) but ...

It's possible to have several visas in the same passport (e.g. an expired visa and a new one), even two unused visas with different periods of validity or back-to-back visas valid over a long period. On the other hand, I don't think consulates would generally issue overlapping visas but none of this is relevant to your travel plans. Whether you have one or ...

A couple of days ago I compiled all the practical transportation options for a Nice to Monaco trip. I though you guys might like to see all the possibilities, costs and advantages of each option. As I grew up in Monaco, I have tested all the possibilities for you, from the bus to the bike trip... SUMMARY of the information available on the link. Nice ...

Terminal 1 is a little confusing at the beginning. You're right; ride the CDGVAL to the terminal first. In most airports, departures are on the upper level and arrivals on the lower one. But here, the thing is reversed. As you get of CDGVAL you'll end up on the lower floor, which is the departures area with the check-in counters. To get to the arrivals, ...

According to a list provided by Air France, Turkey is one of the countries that utilizes APIS. Wikipedia's list is probably just out-of-date.

N.B. I'm reporting information found on the web in French, which looks broadly consistent and up-to-date. I've never visited these caves. The Lascaux cave, or more precisely the partial replica Lascaux II that's open to the public, is open everyday during the summer period, and closed Mondays and for lunchtime outside the summer period. Check the web page ...

First apparently this line is indeed operated with TGVs and voyages-sncf says that there is a restaurant coach on these. I found the exact menu but in French (and with bad quality graphics). In short, they offer a choice (I mean there are multiple items of each type) of hot dishes and cold sandwiches, desserts, cookies, hot and cold drinks, usually packaged ...

Based on the end of the line, I would say that seating on the left side is best. You would be on the lake side in Nantua and Sylans. I don't recall the first part of the journey (on the LGV Sud-Est) as particularly scenic. Upper level is nice on “Duplex” rolling stock but do note that many Lyria-branded trains are in fact single level. Furthermore, since ...

Advance Passenger Information System or APIS gets inserted into your booking either by yourself or if you booked through a travel agent. It is usually inserted for all international travel. The information used is basically your passport number, place of issue, nationality, gender, name and surname all of which can be found on your passport. I think the ...

You should be able to apply in India. See the FAQ here: http://eeas.europa.eu/delegations/india/more_info/faq/schengen_visa_en.htm#faq5 However you may have to explain to the embassy you are applying to about the reason you are applying from India rather than the USA where you currently reside.

I have never tried that one but it looks like it will do the job: GPS Map Explorer Lite PS: I am not at all linked with that app or the guy/team behind!

I will let another person answer for how to get an appointment in France. I would however advise to log,you current vaccination on a International certificate of vaccination . This would give you the details of your vacination in an international standard format. If you arrive in France through charles de gaulle or orly airport you could contact the travel ...

You generally must always enter and exit a country on the same passport. The passport you exit a country with does not have to be the same one as the one you enter the next country with.

Since you are a US citizen, you don't need to worry about the US using passenger records to implement the electronic I-94 system, and the possible confusion that using multiple passports may cause there. You will obviously require your US passport upon returning to the US. You can book all your flights using your EU passport, and keep your US passport ...

I seriously doubt there will be any work to unify the signs. The benefits are questionable (looking at the Wikipedia article you linked) - it is really easy to understand the signs in different countries - and the cost of changing all the signs in even one country is huge.

Yes, you can enter France from Switzerland with a Schengen visa. You will have to go through the border crossing process, as you are entering l’espace Schengen. It doesn’t matter from where you come from, as long as everything is in order for entering. Of course, if you arrive from a dangerous country, then the controls will be more strict. Source : ...

You might want to consider Lyca Mobile http://www.lycamobile.fr/en/offers-mobile-internet It is not a prepaid plan (I do know they had special deals of 10 euro for 1000 mb for 30 days). However I notice that promo is not available right now. But you can get 1 mb for 9 cents. It is quite much but the good thing is that they offer english support. All you ...

I will go ahead and put in an official answer rather than just long comments :) 1) IMO homeaway is by far the biggest and easiest place to find 1-week gites. vrbo (not yet part of the homeaway group, unless you're reading this in the future) is second biggest 2) there is IMO no specific "longer holiday rentals (two weeks plus)" site in france/europe 3) ...
