For people who require a visa prior to arriving in South Africa, a disclosure must be made on the application form. For people who can obtain a visa upon arrival in South Africa, criminal history does not form part of the landing interview, so if it does not flag up when they scan your passport then you're good to go... with some reservations... If ...

TSA Allows Frozen Liquids Only if they Are Frozen Solid TSA allows frozen liquids if and only if they are presented frozen solid to security checks. This is in my opinion a fairly sneaky way to say good luck with that seeing as freezing water at room temperature requires a fair amount of pressure to be applied on it. You can always try to find a liquid that ...

I've camped 'wild' (for a single night) on a BMW1200GS in 30 countries in Europe and never been questioned. A German police officer told me not to use motorway rest areas because of the danger (to me) of being robbed. "Two kilometres off the main roads and no one will take any notice" he said. I had a police officer in Belgium take me to a good spot to wild ...

There is absolutely no problem with your wife following you in. It is normal when families are renting trucks and the weight inspectors and state troopers are well aware of it. The good news is the process is simple - just roll over a road, follow the stop sign and be on your way. You might be asked (should you be over the weight) if you are carrying ...

"ARE" is the ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country code and the NATO 3 letter code for the UAE. This means that yes, "ARE" is the country code in UAE passports.

ARE is indeed the ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country code for United Arab Emirates. These are the codes used for machine readable passports as defined by ICAO. Looking at the wikipedia page showing the format used for machine readable passports you can see that the ISO 3166-1 codes are used both to identify the issuing country as well as the nationality of the ...

The issue got resolved thanks to @pnuts and @CMaster. In short, I think the very first comment from pnuts - which I would accept as the answer if pnuts were to post it as an answer - fully answers the question: First raise it with the Hotel because it may be easiest Credit Card Company next, because they can impose a short time cut-off for disputed ...

Based on the details, the hotel didn't overcharge you at all. The hotel charged you the amount they stated (admittedly in GBP, but I suspect the amount that at standard rates is the same as in your chosen currency). Your card issuer charged you currency conversion costs (and possibly other fees). It's worth being very careful which cards you use abroad - ...

@kenorb Hi, my name is Artem, I actually work at Happyrooms. Found this post occasionally. I'm extremely sorry for this issue. Here is the list of things I will do: Could you please write me your booking # or first and last name — I'll make sure we refund you. I'll make sure we block this hotel sales on our website. I'll make sure our Spanish partner ...

In places where hotels are required to register their guests with the local authorities, they will ask for the ID of all guests. Hence all guests might not need to be present to check-in, but their ID's will. Other hotels might just ask for one ID. This is assuming that all guests begin their stay on the same night. In your specific case you should not ...

Flight schedules get changed all the time, some flights get cancelled, others get added. There is no law against it and no compensation available simply because they cancelled a flight. As your flight is in the future, they have to give you a couple of choices: One you can cancel your booking and get your payment refunded; Two you can choose an alternate ...

It is indeed a (national) collector's coin. It is legal tender in the country where it was issued, but not elsewhere in the eurozone. Even in its country of origin, I could imagine that many people would be surprised to receive one or perhaps even refuse to believe that it is genuine. And looking at the photos you can find on the web, I must say that their ...

I will give you general role about fatwas. Anyone can give a Fatwa in Islam :) The person who gives fatwa has to prove his fatwa with some kind of proof. Even given proof doesn't mean the fatwa needs to be followed. That's why you can find strange fatwa from time to time. Even Saudi's and Muslim in general laugh about some fatwas. Fatwa almost means ...
