I believe you should be able to form a civil partnership or marriage in the UK as foreigners, regardless of it being same-sex or not. From 29 March 2014, same sex couples can get married in England and Wales. You can only get a civil partnership as a same sex couple. There're some differences being made between marriage and civil partnership, but as ...

I cannot tell you the exact official position (or the N official positions as the case may be) but I can give you some useful personal anecdotal input. Short: You are extremely unlikely to have any problems at all if you are otherwise sensibly behaved. If you did happen to incur the wrath of the authorities I would not be overly surprised if a statute ...

The main incompatibility is indeed that Australia requires the use of a top tether strap, so all child seats sold in Australia are built with this in mind, and all cars sold in Australia after the mid-1990s will have the attachment hooks for the tether strap. Also, Australian child seats use the adult seatbelt to attach the bottom of the seat to the car. ...

Nothing will happen (at the airport). The penalty for your offense is only a fine, there's no arrest warrant or anything out for you. Fines have a due date by which they must be paid. If you're leaving in 8 days, you will almost certainly leave before the fine becomes due. Australia is a federal state. You've broken Northern Territory law and were fined ...

All kinds of weapons, small or big, cold or fire, whether used for self defense or mass destruction are strictly prohibited onboard all flights, all airlines, in all countries and airports. If you managed to get it onboard a flight, then it must be due to improper security check at the gate, not because they allow it. From the TSA's page on prohibited ...

To claim for delayed flights compensation in the EU under (EU rule 261/2004) should only cost the price of a stamp to your airline. You should not pay a 3rd party company to do this for you. There are some very helpful tips that are provided by Martin Lewis (The Money Saving Expert) in the UK which I followed and were successful in my claim. I presume it is ...

Yes such insurances exist. However you didn't say where you are located. If you simply want an example I can point you to an example in the Netherlands (link is Dutch). They cover Per verzekerde (overlijden/blijvende invaliditeit) € 5.000/€ 50.000 Als gevolg van besturen van motorrijwiel (overlijden/blijvende invaliditeit) € 5.000/€ 25.000 If ...

Some Travel Insurances do cover death. However it's likely possible that not all types of travel insurances cover it. For some personal experience, my travel insurance covers a large amount in case of death, but my insurance is a student travel insurance valid for one year. In case of smaller duration of travel, it's probably unlikely to be mentioned ...

I can tell you out of my own experience that I (as a caucasian tourist) was not allowed to board a flight in Hotan (Xinjiang province) heading to Urumuqi because I had decorative knives in my checked-in luggage. They were about 13cm long with the grip and very nicely decorated. I did not have any in my carry on. On check-in they X-Rayed the luggage and ...

Airport Duty-Free stores are located after the security check points and before the boarding zone. As such, purchasing Alcohol would be allowed and carrying it aboard, assuming you will pass any other boarding requirement as well, would also be allowed. (Note, in at least the US, a lady's purse counts as a carry on, so if you also had an actuall (rollaboard) ...

It's illegal but it's also very improbable that you will get fined for doing it. However, it's also illegal to get those items into other countries like Holland, Italy, US, UK etc... if you get caught there, you WILL get fined. This is the link for Spain, I couldn't find it in English but you can use Google translate: ...

Be very careful with the arrest questions on ESTA even if there was no conviction. They have your entire arrest history on the screen in front of them the moment they are taking your finger prints and I know from experience there is a good chance that you will be denied entry and returned.
