Officially, you are not supposed to / expected to give tips to anyone on the Indian Railways network. On most express or mail trains, these attendants used to be IRCTC employees, a public sector company but many of them are now being directly handled by the Indian Railways while on other routes, these are handled by private companies. Regardless of who ...

You should not have any troubles travelling directly to USA from Sweden. At most, you'd get questions at the airport in Sweden when checking in, and you'd have to explain (or prove) your current status in Sweden. The US authorities won't care much where are you flying from, as long as you hold a valid visa. I myself travelled on a B1/B2 visa from Sweden one ...

Nothing and nobody can justifiably stop you heading to international waters. ( The freedom of the seas) However, that's only half the story: afterwards, you will have to enter somebody's territorial waters (unless you plan to stay at sea forever to avoid taxes; some very rich people have plans to do just that). When you do, you will need visas, customs ...

A Swiss tourist visa is for the following activities: Tourism trip Visits to relatives and/or friends Scientists, professors or researchers attending cultural, technological or scientific conferences, seminars or meetings (services provided must not be paid by organizations/corporations in Switzerland, except reimbursement for expenses or ...

No, you don't need a transit visa - as long as you don't leave the transit lounge. But be sure about your change with airlines/planes, as there are two airports in Istanbul. You may read detailed information on the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

It seems you'd be able to pull it off, but it'd definitely be extra hassle and you might be subject to extra scrutiny (not to mention the cultural tensions between the two nations). Visas The Pakistani government says about tourist visas: "A non-extendable tourist visa valid for 14 days is issued by Pakistan High Commission, New Delhi through approved ...

Firstly, the Indian visa in France gives out visas to India. Assuming you're on an Indian passport, this is useless to you. You need to go to the embassy/consulate of the country for which you want a visa - eg if you are going to Egypt, you go to the Egyptian embassy in France. My belief is that your long stay visa (more than three months) falls under the ...

1) You don't have to apply for a transit visa if you are eligible for a Transit Without Visa (TWOV) concession. The rules for TWOV are outlined here: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/policyandlaw/carriers/ukvisarequirements.pdf Indian citizens may not TWOV in general. However, it looks like you meet the following exception: ...

Will I have any trouble with getting Schengen visa? Very likely yes, even though UK is not part of the Schengen zone, it does collaborate in SIS (Schengen Information System). One of the preconditions of getting a Schengen visa is to not be flagged in SIS. In accordance with the protocol to the Treaty of Amsterdam, Ireland and the United Kingdom ...

The address is mostly a convenience (in case the passport gets lost). In my country, reporting an address change is not mandatory and Canada even advises you to change it yourself. It might be a problem as far as the Indian authorities are concerned so I wouldn't recommend doing that but there is no way a third country could verify it or rely on it for any ...

Yes, your I94 will be taken out of the passport when you are leaving from Guam to Japan. You will have to fill out a new one once you enter US territory again. The only exception for this rule is when you go to Canada or Mexico for less than 30 days. This is a completely normal procedure and pretty much the same anywhere else in the world. If your visa for ...

I am an Indian passport holder working in the US on H1B. I was supposed to fly LAX-Narita-KL-Bangalore on 23rd December 2012 with a 14 hour overnight layover in Narita. I received a call from the airline 2 days before my scheduled departure, stating that new rules at Narita dictate that travelers absolutely need a transit visa for overnight layovers in ...

This depends on a lot of factors: The price of the flight is a big one - are you sure MPI won't pay it for you, not even in part? Health insurance seems to be available for as little as 30 EUR per month, see here, here or here. But note that if you get sick, you still have to pay 10 EUR to visit a doctor (but only once per quarter) and between 5 and 10 EUR ...

This will not answer your question directly, but the following will tell you that you can go through any Schengen country on your way. That should open up a long list of possible travel routes from India to Sweden. A PUT (Permanent uppehållstillstånd, Permanent Residence Permit) for Sweden (or any other Schengen country) works the same as a Schengen Visa. ...

As an Indian national with a US Visa transiting a French airport you do not generally require a visa, as you can TWOV (Transit Without Visa). Presuming you are passing through Paris CDG airport, then this is true even if you have to change terminals as there is an air-side bus. (At Paris ORY airport some transfers can not be made airside and will require a ...

Rome2rio presents some possible routings, which go via Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong (1st stop) and Japan (2nd stop). Any of these would be a good choice for you, since none of these countries require visas for a same-day, same-airport transfer. Going via the mainland US makes no sense, it's a long detour in the wrong direction.

Well, of course it's possible, but it would be very far from desirable, if the 1500 euros has to cover airfare, health insurance and living expenses. Depending on where you leave from and when you fly, your flight won't be much less than 800 USD, let's say 600 Euro. That leaves you 900 euros for three months. The cost of health insurance varies, with 100 ...

A stopover is typically a stay in one city of 24 hours or more. In your case, you actually have just a connection in Tokyo. Connections can even go across airports in the same metropolitan area, such as between London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Very rarely are visas required for connections in the same airport, since you do not need to clear ...

Yes, as a tourist you can use your own license, but you will also need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP). In India you can get this from your local RTO office, procedures will vary slightly but here's the requirements for Karnataka.

So, does one need a transit visa to transit via UK to the US. This question can never be answered in a single word with a Yes or No. There are a few parameters that one needs to take into consideration. I will try my best to put things as clearly and simply as possible. Situation No. 1 - One doesn't need a transit visa if he/ she is transiting Airside. ...

It depends on if you are a visitor or if you are a Californian resident. Visitors are allowed to use their foreign driver's licence without limitation. If you become a resident of California, you must obtain a Californa driver's license within 10 days. Source: California DMV

For example, Rome To Rio gives some possible routes. It suggests, for example, to go through Doha or Dubai. As far as I know, as long as you do not leave the international transit area, you do not need a transit visa for Doha or Dubai.

No, you do not need a visa for going from Canada to India via Munich airport (or vice versa), as long as you stay in the transit area and have a connection in less than 12 hours.

No problem -- the United Arab Emirates (and hence Dubai) does not care about Israeli stamps, it's only Israeli passport holders who may have a tough time. Here's the UAE Embassy to the US with a straightforward answer: Q: I am an American traveling to the UAE, will the UAE allow me entry if I have an Israeli stamp in my passport? A: Yes. And a ...
