The 'Seaman's Book' provides a travel document that can be used instead of a passport in some cases. In order to be used as a passport, the situation must be appropriate (i.e., joining a vessel) and the book itself must contain all of the information that a passport would normally contain. But the big selling point of having a Seaman's Book, comes when it ...

I've been to China with a UAE stamp in the same passport. No problem was raised. I don't particularly see why there would be a problem? China and the UAE have pretty good relations. So in answer to your question - yes, it IS possible to travel to China with a UAE stamp in your passport.

If you're a Canadian citizen coming to visit the US by land, you can present any of the following documents: A valid passport; A valid NEXUS card; A valid enhanced driver license. (You can also use a SENTRI or FAST/EXPRES card, but unless you travel to Mexico a lot or are a commercial truck driver you aren't likely to have one of these.) If you haven't ...

This is what they refer to as a 'coded landing'. There is a very brief passage about it in the Wiki article, UK Immigration Enforcement. You can also do a Google search on 'coded landing uk' to see where lots of people have experienced anxiety about them. You can obtain a list of some of the codes using the Freedom of Information Act, others are ad-hoc. ...

I've used tinfoil to separate the pages and stood it on the radiator this worked a treat : )

The passport card is a card -- it doesn't have any pages to it, thus there is no place for visas or entry/exit stamps. Thus, it can only be used to travel to places where no visa is needed and where there are treaties in place to ensure that enough data is exchanged between immigration departments so that they can keep track of you without stamps. As the ...

Hungarian citizens do not need a visa for Canada. You could therefore choose to enter Canada as a Hungarian and ignore your US citizenship. It is not necessary to mention it to the border guards unless they ask. You will need an eTA if you are arriving by air after March of next year. US citizens do not always need a passport to travel to Canada. A birth ...

I can confirm Mark Mayo's experience. It is possible to travel to China with a UAE stamp in your passport. I base this on my own experience. I have two stamps from the UAE as well as several visas, both business and travel Visas from China in my passport and never experienced any problems at immigration in either of the two countries.

If you ever do have a situation where a visa stamp in your passport will preclude you from visiting another country, your passport agency will likely be fine with granting you a second passport. This happens not infrequently with US journalists--the US government issues them a second passport for what some call the "terrorism tour" countries. (The second ...

I can't tie my suggestion for a notarized letter in with UK law, but it is recommended (not required) by the USA. Because of increasing instances of child abduction in custody cases, and a growing number of children who are the victims of trafficking or pornography, an immigration officer, airline, or travel company may ask you to provide some form of letter ...

Based on Department Of State website, Most U.S. nationals, including dual nationals, must use a U.S. passport to enter and leave the United States. Dual nationals may also be required by the foreign country to use its passport to enter and leave that country. Use of the foreign passport does not endanger U.S. nationality. Most countries permit a person ...

There is no template for this; you can go to the Embassy and the staff there can write this up for you (in Urdu, if you are not well versed). You can also submit it in, but you have to: Write it up on a piece of paper - address it to the Counselor [insert the Embassy's address] You need to sign it in front of an officer from the Embassy (otherwise its not ...

What's is the standard procedure to deal with a similar issue? The 'standard procedure' is to initiate an enquiry through the facility sponsored by HM Passport Office. They provide a form with some drop-downs and ID fields. Applications from abroad are normally referred to the Glasgow office for fulfillment, but it's fine to enter London... At the ...

As @user102008 explained, what you plan on doing is perfectly fine. But note that you can use whichever passport you feel like when checking in (or even show the airline several passports if needed). This has no consequences and you can always show your EU passport later, at the official passport check at your destination airport. The US is a little more ...

My main confusion is that I've read that you should always exit and enter a country with the same passport (which I am obviously not doing) You are doing it. The thing you are forgetting is that exiting country A and entering country B are two separate things (and the airline check-in is a third separate thing). When you exit country A, you should ...

According to Timatic, which is THE authority used by airlines for determining passport, visa & health requirements for travelers, your National ID is an acceptable travel document. Timatic for Netherlands - Turkey Chances are the call center agent only looked at the general rules which state a passport is required, but the check in agent will be able to ...

It depends what you mean by “could”. It is not allowed; If you read the relevant regulations, the entry refusal form, etc. candidly the maximum duration of authorized stay clearly applies to a person and I consider it obvious that border guards (and, if needed, the courts) would interpret it in that way. But, as of writing this, there is no Schengen-wide ...

I ended up flying in the day before my passport expired, and then I asked the port officer what would have happened. She told me that they would give me a fine and a warning. How much of a fine, I don't know. But at least you could enter without too harsh a consequence in an emergency.

You can't get a Mexican passport unless you are Mexican citizen. Generally speaking, for travel you need a government issued identification document with your photo - a passport any passport qualifies for this. Depending on the flight, you may also provide other forms of identification in lieu of the passport (for example, a driver's license is accepted on ...

Yes you can. Canada has no exit checks. Britain has recently instituted them, but I see no sign that they will require you to exit on a British passport (they don't require you to enter on a British passport). Neither have a problem with you being a dual citizen. And either passport will get you visa-free access to the other country. This question gives you ...

No. See 13.18 for Canada - much the same applies for USA.

Having a passport list your name as BCA potentially makes it invalid, since it doesn't reflect your true identity. Same would apply if the passport had a different birthdate or a different name altogether. While having such a passport is not fraudulent, it's a potential reason for visa refusal at the embassy. I would suggest applying for a new passport to ...

I think it is not illegal to hold two simultaneously valid passports issued by Indian authorities. Both the stories liked to by @JoseK relate to fraud, potential fraud or other aberration and do not indicate much about the legality of holding two Indian passports if both obtained legitimately. Yes, for example immihelp states "Holding more than one ...

You don't need to surrender your passport, you need to just show a copy of the page where it has your name and photo. This is to make sure your name is spelled correctly on the reservation, and frankly this is common practice across most travel agents. They do not want to risk you not being boarding because of a spelling mistake or reversal of the family ...

First, you probably don't know when the oath is, so you can't really buy tickets ahead of time for "right after the oath". To answer your question, yes, nothing would prevent her from going to another country using her existing passport, and she will be able to come back to the US fine once she has her US passport.

The anser to your question can depend on the countries involved. For example, a US State Department website says this about dual citizenship Israeli-Americans: "Israeli citizens naturalized in the United States retain their Israeli citizenship, and children born in the United States to Israeli parents usually acquire both U.S. and Israeli nationality at ...

Unlikely. If for some reason they were trying to use this as evidence of you being in the country, you could request your computer records (or show flights etc) to prove that it was merely an error with their stamps. And they could verify this themselves from both the Canadian or American side if they had to. Any visa application in the future where you ...
