In short: Come to the airport early, security checks will take longer. You should expect a longer and more serious security check before your departure and after your landing, including questioning about your whereabouts and activities in Iran or Kuwait. If you just visited there, this should be it - your entrance is very highly unlikely to be refused. ...

Some countries (e.g. UK) will give you a second passport. This way you get all your stamps from one set of countries in one passport, and all your stamps from another set of countries in another.

You cannot travel with an expired passport. Once a passport expires, it is no longer a valid travel document (even if it contains a valid visa). As there is no Ghanaian foreign mission in Kuwait, you need to contact the Ghanaian Embassy in Saudi Arabia to renew your passport. Once you have renewed your passport, you need to transfer your Kuwait residency ...

Bring the old passport with you along with your new passport (hopefully you still have it) and you will be able to enter. This applies to all other countries provided that the page where the visa is not cancelled (usually by writing a big X or by puncturing it in the sides). Update: Always remember to ask the authority to handle you the old passport when ...

Even if Iran's neighbouring countries have good relations with Iran, the question is whether the banking system in the neighbouring countries is liable to the sanctions. Cash withdrawals through ATMs between different banks are handled through interbank networks, many of which exist as standalone networks within a country (as the Wikipedia article linked ...

I don't think any stamps will be an issue for the Israeli authorities. They might ask about it, but don't expect trouble if its obvious you were just visiting for holidays. It is obviously safest to check with your local Israeli embassy though.

There are 5 HI hostels in Kuwait, including one in Kuwait City: http://www.hihostels.com/guide/HI-Hostels-Guide-Kuwait.pdf Apparently the price for HI members is 3 KD/night, or around US$10. Not too shabby. Guest workers almost always stay in company dormitories, which don't cater to random travellers. And you'd probably want to avoid them anyway unless ...

If you have your old passport with you: No problem. You still can use the visa as long as you bring both passports. Even if the passport is cancelled (clipped). If you do not have your old passport with you: Big problem, you need to visit the Kuwaiti embassy to issue a new visa.

Your host is correct. The scanned copy of your visa allows the airline to board you. The actual visa is collected as the visa collection desk at Kuwait airport. There are two desks - one at the arrivals hall for your meeting party to drop the original, and there is one before immigration for you to collect the same paper. Once you arrive in Kuwait, follow ...

I visited Israel in August 2012 after having been in Iran in January that year. The first immigration person I got was not happy about the Iranian visa and stamp, and seemed incredulous that I would ever want to go there. He actually said "There is nothing worth seeing in Iran". He asked me a lot of pointed questions, and was slightly aggressive, then sent ...

You have a UK passport due to expire in 5 1/2 months and are travelling to a country where 6 months validity is required. At the time of your arrival, your passport will have 5 months remaining until expiry. There is a very slim discretionary zone in Kuwait for entering without a valid passport as they define it. They might forgive a day or so if you are ...

This question has been answered correctly by Burhan Khalid, however I had a strange experience while travelling and thought it would be worth Sharing here. I had the scanned copy in hand and I reached the airport only to find that the Airline would refuse to board me. The reason given is that, for Indian travellers, Kuwait airways (and a few other ...

If you overstayed, noone will stop you on the way out, they will be quite happy to see you go. You'll have a problem the next time you try to enter. The embassy issued travel document will be fine, that's what it's for.

If you already have a multiple entry visa for Saudi; just go to any Waseet agent (they are handling the Saudi Embassy visa process). You'll find them in Hawally behind the Nugra Complex (North). You'll need to bring: Visa for Bahrain Passports of your family members. Pictures (blue background) Cash (as they don't take cards, but there is an ATM in the ...
