Of course, there is no way you will be able to directly enter an enemy country from inside Israel unless you want to illegally cross the border to Syria or Libanon — not recommended. So your friend’s travel will always be via a third country. Israeli law requires you to enter and exit Israel on your Israeli passport if you have one, but once you enter ...

Passports are reported lost and stolen every day, so you would imagine that online passport validity verification is performed as a matter of course. According to this article from 2014, this may not in fact be happening: The international police organisation, Interpol, says its stolen and lost travel documents database is used on a routine basis by ...

There are really two parts to this: Is your passport still valid? - It has not expired, but it has been suspended. This suspension is requested from the HHS to the US State Department. A suspended passport is no longer a valid travel document. Does it say why its suspended? - No real way to know this. Definitely the airlines don't know this. If your ...

I'm not sure if you need a US visa or not - most EU nationals do not require one for tourism, however for reference I am using the photo guidelines for US visas which don't state that your forehead has to be visible: In color Sized such that the head is between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches (22 mm and 35 mm) or 50% and 69% of the image's total height from the ...

Contact your country's embassy or consulate to report the issue, as officially the passport belongs to the country, not to you. Most embassies will not do much directly on your behalf, but most do have lists of suggested lawyers they can give you, through which you can pursue legal action. You can contact the Royal Thai Police and file a complaint. But if ...

This could be counted as expenses paid (as part of a scholarship). I attend conferences where some attendees are financially supported because they are from a minority - this doesn't count as payment or remuneration. It is most important that you mention this clearly in your application so there is not confusion.

The consequences (for you) depend what kind of card it is (is it a pre-paid card, a debit/check card or a credit card); however as a simple matter if the card has no balance - and no "overcharge" feature, the request will be rejected with a notice stating the same. Keep in mind that they may have pre-authorized the charge (also called a "hold") if so, the ...

This question is not as simple to answer as it may seem. A friction lock baton is not classified as a weapon (meaning it doesn't require a special license), as per Federal Law # 3 of 2009, which defines weapons as: a ‘weapon’ as: Including a firearm, air gun, sound gun, flare gun, hunting gun, antique gun and stun guns; and a ‘firearm’ as: A ...

These are not considered as "sharps"1, but my recommendation is to carry them in a carrying case (something like this item from Nisi): I would not risk it in checked baggage unless you put them in a Pelican case or something extremely robust. Source - sadly, first hand experience with checked in photography equipment, even though it was in its original ...

Yes you could be able to stay at a hotel in Dubai as an unmarried couple. Women in Dubai often keep their last names. Islamic law does prohibit unmarried people from living with each other which does include in a hotel room. Try to be discreet that you are only a couple (unmarried) in Dubai. Refrain from calling the other person your girlfriend or ...

You cannot, for two main reasons: Your visa is no longer valid for the purpose of your trip. Schengen visas needs to be valid for the entire duration of your stay in the Schengen area. This means that not only does the visa need to be valid for when you are entering the Schengen zone, but it has to be valid throughout your intended period of stay. For ...

I don't know about the rest of the EU, but I can tell you the situation here in the UK: Summary: for strictly recreational purposes there is no legal requirement. If you had your own boat you could take it out with no training, experience or certification at all (thankfully most people don't). So the level of certification/experience needed depends on the ...

I do not know on what page of the website you found the link you quote stating short study visas have a fee, but I could not find such requirement on the vfs-france website. On the Visa Fees page, I can read: ... Student Long Stay : 50 EUR (3788 INR) ... and no other fee for short stays. I double checked by looking at the French consulate in ...

It has so far not been pointed out that at least in some countries you can not get married (or give notice of a marriage) if you do not have a certain special "marriage visa." This depends on the regulations of the country where you would want to marry (and you and your significant other's citizenships) so a general answer is out of scope but a prime ...

If you are a citizen of country A, and travel to country B, it would be up to country B whether they marry you or not, and up to country A (and any other country in the world) whether they recognise the marriage or not. I would first enquire with your local registry office (even if it isn't the one that you are a citizen of) - in many places, they will be ...

The same-sex part of your situation is irrelevant in the US. The issue for you will be, if the plan is you enter the US on a tourist visa, marry, then apply to change your visa status on the grounds you are married to an US citizen. If you do that, ICE will suspect you of visa fraud -- and they will likely be right. If you want to come to the US to get ...

No, there are no requirements for airlines within the EU to provide free drinking water. I know that it is both common and in some countries even required by law for bars and restaurants to serve tap water for free. If tap water is good enough, I guess that not even Ryanair would have charged you for drinking tap water aboard the plane, but it might not have ...

The Short Answer is: Most Probably You need to note that licencing and qualifications are not standardised across the EU and as such each country sets their own licencing conditions (in practice most EU members will observe equal terms and skills recognition between member states). Further, most states of Australia have reciprocal skills recognition with ...

Since another question has been linked to this, which I feel isn't a totally duplicate question, and nobody has raised the issue on this question, I'd like to add some information about other consequences of speeding that a typical foreign violator might incur that haven't been raised previously. If you are driving a rental car, the registered owner of the ...

Breast-feeding in public is NOT a crime. Iranians, like other humans in the world, feed their children and understand it. Due to beliefs of their region, maybe they use some material like a scarf. Women's dress code in Iran includes Manto that is the same as your spring coat. A woman can use it as a cover, but is not necessary for travelers. Iranians are so ...

The answer is simple you use your turn signals to indicate to other drivers what your intentions are. You were correct to indicate left as your vehicle must turn slightly/merge to enter the main road from the access road on the right hand side of road. As a fellow Pittsburgher driving the very same roads I use my left signal at this entrance onto the ...

There is a stop sign at this intersection. Your right hand signal would be appropriate while stopped at the sign, to signal your intent to cars behind you. As soon as you've decided to proceed, you should switch to left signal to indicate your intention to oncoming traffic in the lane you're merging to.

I have some personal experience with this. My aunt from China came to visit and after spending some time in the Bay Area (where it is nearly impossible to speed on the highway, and when you do the police are rather lenient) she attempted to drive to Las Vegas. In Barstow she got pulled over for speeding. My Aunt had a Chinese driver's licence and passport ...

This is the oakland zoo, just go. He was fishing for a DUI nothing more. You would use your right turn signal at the stop sign. Even though it's your only option. If there were an actual merge lane you would use your left signal to indicate a right lane to left lane merge, but there isn't. I was born and raised here in the Steelcity and work in Oakland.

It is illegal for civilians to wear camouflage clothing in Trinidad & Tobago, so if you're heading that way you should avoid wearing clothing (or carrying luggage) that features any camouflage patterns. When I flew there (from the UK) last year we were advised that we would not be allowed to board our flight if were so attired.

The previous ban would have flagged your application up for human review, which obviously isn't going to be instant and depending on the current amount of applications, could take quite a while. Other reasons could include Technical Problems or another Technical Reason.

Based on Florida Drivers License Handbook Signal your intent to merge onto the expressway In this case, you'd switch between signals when merging - So right signal when exiting until the stop sign, then left signal while merging. Pennsylvania DOT agrees, but without pictures -

In this particular case you should be using the RIGHT TURN Signal You use the left turn signal only in the case where you merge or change from an acceleration lane such as the situation here: In your particular case you where actually making a shallow right turn. There are no actual rules printed as far as I can remember but you can check the driver's ...

The Czech police website has a good overview of the current legal situation, albeit only in Czech. Selling marijuana for whatever amount of money or services is a criminal offence, punishable for one to five years in prison: § 187 Nedovolená výroba a držení omamných a psychotropních látek a jedů (1) Kdo neoprávněně vyrobí, doveze, vyveze, ...

It's actually very simple, there are no complex rules on how to keep time, what counts or not, or anything like that. Each time you cross an external border, you should get a stamp with a date on it. The day you got an entry stamp, the day you got an exit stamp and every day between them count as one day towards the 90-day limit. So if you enter and leave ...

To add to all the "No" responses the "21" limit also applies to US flagged vessels including both domestic and international Airlines. I have seen Australians of your age denied drinks on international flights leaving the US and headed to Oz.

Yes! According to the ProCon link mentioned in comments and other answers, drinking over the age of 18 is permitted with parental consent and without parental presence in some states, and without parental consent in others. As mentioned in other answers, it's not legal to buy alcohol under 21 or have someone else buy it for you. The problem to overcome then, ...

The UAE is somewhat famous for banning VPNs -- but it's unclear whether that's only if you use them to commit illegal activities or whether even a company VPN is illegal which would be strange to say the least -- nonetheless, there is no ban on using encrypted communications to the best of my knowledge.

From which point near the NSW/QLD border does it become legal for pedestrians to walk along the M1 (Pacific Highway)? From which point do I change my clock? Really you'd have to guess a bit, but I'd say you'd be okay once you've passed the 'Welcome to NSW' sign... Which coincidentally is not accessible by pedestrians from the QLD side on the physical ...

National Trails are a good collection of paths that you can walk and some cycle. The map on the site shows you where the nearest long-distance trail is. In general, the trails are often based on historical routes and some follow paths that have been walked for many years (like the North Down Ways to Canterbury). When walking these paths you many often need ...

Without being a local resident, I wouldn't be able to give you a definitive answer, but the general rules are that you should be fine as long as there are no signs stating no pedestrians. I'd advise that you only take a route that you know and is legal. You should be able to find this out by asking someone in the particular local area if you are not sure. ...

Most if not all airlines prohibit carrying fuel canisters onboard, both as checked and as carry-on luggage. It is a compressed canister containing flammable liquid. The TSA page on prohibited items confirms this. So flying from the US with the fuel canister is definitely a no, regardless of whether it can be imported in India. The stove without fuel ...

Looking only at the legal aspects of this - and not at the suitability or recommendation of any particular walk. In England and Wales, you can walk on any public right of way, or on any open access land. Public Rights of Way include footpaths, bridleways, and byways. As a walker, you can go on any of those. You can get information on all of those from the ...

The information page of a passport is an identity document and contains several fragments of personal information that could be useful to an identity thief: your full legal name, date of birth, photograph, etc... Somebody could potentially use that information, along with other details they research about your life and some social engineering, to impersonate ...

Advice appears to suggest that as long as passport and visa applications are neat, very minor crossed out errors won't make any trouble; Complete the form in capital letters with a black ballpoint pen Write only within the white boxed areas Leave other areas of the form blank.

The consensus on the internet seems to be that you can make corrections to a paper UK visa application form. Obviously you'll want to keep the correction as neat as possible, making sure that the correct information is readable and the incorrect one is clearly crossed out. If in doubt, I would advise you to get a new form and start over.

Yes, the passport number will change. The reason that airlines ask for passport information when booking flights is so that the airline can satisfy any pre-clearance requirements by immigration authorities at the destination. Typically, the information needs to be transmitted to the destination country authorities a certain number of hours or days before ...

It's not a rule on paper that decides what's allowed, it's a human with their own history and beliefs who has that authority - if you can't board the flight it doesn't exactly help you that the airline apologizes to you afterwards because the decision to throw you off was clearly wrong. People get thrown off flights for the most ridiculous reasons, so my ...

I visited Christiana last year and took one of the tours with a local resident (I can recommend the tour by the way). The rules on the sign in question applies specifically to the "Green Light District," also known as the immediate area around "Pusher Street," where drugs are sold. There are a number of prominent "No Photos" signs at the entrances to this ...

Temperature in Boston, MA on 2016-05-25: 88F (31°C). Temperature in Seattle, WA on 2016-05-25: 66F (19°C). Sudden changes in temperature can make a person sick. The pilot was simply trying to protect this young woman's health by suggesting she cover up with appropriate clothing. Thus, to answer your question: Wear clothing suitable for the destination's ...

The short answer is: you cant. As an "honorary" member of a Burschenschaft, I fought two duels in Freiburg in 1988, leaving me with a prominent Schmiss on my right cheek (11 stiches) and a small one (one stitch) that probably wont be noticeable even if and when I go bald. I've probably witnessed over 100 duels. Though a lot of time has passed since I ...

There are a wide variety of reasons why you may be denied boarding. I described some of the alleged security reasons here with references: Physical appearance and clothing, do they affect the passenger's chances of getting on the plane? In the example in question, the reason was not security (or a pretence at security), it was (allegedly) decency. From ...

I am American. Things may be different in Australia but probably not. When I renewed my passport, the new passport had a different number. However, I did not lose my old passport. Any visa in it are still valid. I can still use my old passport for many purposes. Book your flight with your old passport. Bring both passports to the airport. There will ...
