Long story short the procedure ...

Mustang is essentially a suburb of Oklahoma City, the biggest city in the state (half million in population or so). Spending wise you will find the state to be cheaper overall compared to costs in Canada, but not by a huge amount. I would budget based on what things cost you visiting a big city in Canada and be happy having a few dollars left at trip's ...

Straight razors are allowed in checked-in luggage all over the world. Anyway, they are not allowed in hand luggage as they can be used to harm someone. I will list three sources that regulate this, TSA (US), EASA (EU), IATA (the rest of the world), these rules are not enforced all over the world, but as long as these three organizations have the same rules ...

There are three common situations: The country you are departing has outbound passport control Once you cross the line you have officially left the country as far as immigration is concerned.

Is there special status with flights between countries with special immigration agreements (e.g. Shengen area)? Let me answer this first: If you fly from one Schengen country to another, you won't pass a passport control. So the so called "Schengen area" at airports, where intra-Schengen flights depart (not to confuse with "The Schengen area") is not ...

You may have passed a border check, but that doesn't mean you've left the country (just as at land borders: there's a gap between the border posts, but that land is still in one country or the other). So the laws of the country apply. Of course, there are usually some special laws or exceptions that apply to such areas, with respect to immigration and taxes. ...

While practice varies, it's perfectly normal for a name on a boarding pass to be "LAST/ FIRST MIDDLE MR", So "Mr John Jack Smith" appears as "SMITH/JOHN JACK MR". That seems to be exactly what has been done to your name. I wouldn't worry about it. Airline staff are almost certainly familiar with a wide variety of international naming styles, and if they ask ...

An option not yet mentioned is to get a prepaid credit card in the destination currency before you travel. You will not get hit by transfer rates as the card is billed in the same currency as the merchant bank plus as its a prepaid card were you to misplace it you are only risking what ever you put on the card. The downside is some prepaid cards are not ...

I dont know if this thread is still topical (probably always will be ?) but I'll give you my example of a 2014 currency transaction. I live in the UK and I am travelling to Thailand in September 2014. At the time of writing XE.com tell me that the current exchange rate is 500.00 GBP = 26,267.37 THB My bank and most other "High Street" foreign currency ...

You are correct that the secondary screening for liquids only occurs at certain airports, including Kong Kong (which does the check for flights bound for the U.S. and Australia). I've seen it in Tokyo Narita but only sometimes. The U.K. and Australia do strict liquid checks for all international flights. The U.S. does liquid checks for all flights ...
