With in the EU there is a freedom of capital moment. However, having said the above you need to know that up to €10.000 cash no questions are asked. For larger amounts like €50.000 or €100.000+ you would be asked to prove the source of that cash. (money laundering regulations).

What finally happened was that they let me on with 2.5KG overweight - 25.5KG vs 23KG advertised limit. I didn't ask too many questions, and this isn't the first time I got on with overweight luggage to an El Al flight. Note that 25.5KG is still well below the limit for business class luggage.

I think key to the answer is "where I will take permanent residence." The moment you arrive in the UK you are technically still a resident of India. This will remain up until you take permanent residency in the UK. Just make sure your insurance applies up until that date, preferably some days after arriving in the UK just to be on the safe side. If you ...

Overweight bags are not only so designated as a way to make money for the airline . They can actually be difficult for baggage handlers to, well, handle, and to place inside the hold etc. The extra fee is to deter you from bringing a heavy bag; the airline would definitely prefer even a single traveller to bring two lighter bags. Then to complicate matters ...

Take two suitcases. You will (probably) get charged extra for the overweight bag, and if it's too overweight they won't accept it at all. And you will pay again on the return. Assuming you are going on vacation, you will most likely buy something and need a way to carry it home. yes? One overweight, stuffed to capacity case won't work. Note that a ...

If coming from the US, get a CapitalOne 360 Checking account (formerly INGDirect). With the debit card you can make ATM withdrawals with ZERO fees levied on the US side. (The only possible fees are by the local ATM/bank. My experience is that developed countries = easy to find fee-free ATMs; developing countries = difficult.) In my experience this is ...

I am not a lawyer. That being said, if your friend is a legal driver in India, and has an Indian driver's license, is over 18, and was driving the type of vehicle she is licensed to drive, then India is listed in Appendix C. She should have been a legal driver in Massachusetts. If there was no other infraction noted on the ticket, other than not having a ...

You can enter Belgium (or any other country in the Schengen area) with an EU format residence card (something that looks like that). It's part of the Schengen regulations (article 5 of the Schengen borders code) and I have some friends who have done it successfully. You do need a valid passport as well (i.e. you will need your new passport, even if it has ...

Some countries have severe restrictions on importing life animals. If that's all settled (and all the paperwork properly ...
