Trying to find a workaround this will get you into an even bigger mess. I understand how these situations come to be in the first place but the correct procedure to fix this is to either get an affidavit which suggests that the date on the School Leaving Certificate is incorrect or get the School Leaving Certificate fixed. Either way, not doing this at ...

Yes, in principle you should have gotten an entry stamp for the Schengen area. It seems the French border guard did not follow the rules. I don't think the UK border guards generally put exit stamps in passports, I believe the UK authorities should have gotten a passenger list from IDBUS so you should be fine as far as the UK is concerned. As far as ...

I think you have the basics right. In your case, both passports could let you enter Germany but the US also has a rule that US citizens must use their US passport to enter the country (I think European countries, including Germany are much less concerned about that). Since the US uses airline data to replace exit immigration and checks passenger manifests ...

Depending on things you can claim the citizenship of the airline, as there is some law (was told during my training but now long since forgotten) that until you exit the aircraft, you are under the protectorate of the country of the plane's registration. E.g., if the plane was USA registered, and you are born midair between Oz and NZ, then you are under the ...

In Canada they automatically become a Canadian Citizen :( It's named jus soli (Latin), or right of soil, as opposed to jus sanguinis, or right of blood. The citizenship policy is unique, among developed nations, to Canada and (at one point, not sure if it still is) the USA. It was put in place in the 1947 Citizenship Act when people would come and would ...

It varies according to country. And if the country does not have a rule, there is a United Nations directive that kicks in to prevent the baby from being stateless. In the United Kingdom, your question is explicitly addressed in the British Nationality Act 1981. For the purposes of this Act a person born outside the United Kingdom aboard a ship or ...

I have direct experience with this; not actually in flight thank goodness, but in transit. My daughter was born prematurely in Shanghai last year during a short layover between Paris and Auckland. My wife and I only had limited 48-hour transit visas for China and our flight was due to depart about 10 hours after she was admitted to hospital at the beginning ...

When we got the passport for our daughter (also German, then also <1 year old) we were told that we can have the photo in the existing passport updated for less than the price of a new passport. Children's passports can also be extended (being valid for another 6 years) and apparently this can be combined with the photo update, costing you 6 Euro and a ...

Yes, you have to change the passport. This tells * : Was viele nicht wissen – wenn Ihr Baby, Kleinkind oder Kind zum Zeitpunkt Ihrer Reise keine Ähnlichkeit mehr hat mit dem Lichtbild im Pass, dann kann es sein, dass der Pass nicht mehr akzeptiert und für ungültig erklärt wird. or, in English, What many do not know - if your baby, toddler, or ...

I can't speak for Germany specifically, as each country sets its own guidelines for this, but there is a general obligation to get a new passport if your appearance changes drastically. However, this is usually intended at adults only, and the US even exempts children officially as long as the change is due to the "normal aging process": You may have to ...

I too confirmed from Passport office that the cancelled passport is no longer a valid doc. Too agree with Tom. Thanks everyone for your valueable comments

You can not travel with an cancelled passport irregardless of the former expiration date. Once they have marked the passport as cancelled it is no lonver a valid document for travel. The airline will not let you board with an invalid passport, your home country's immigration will likely not let you leave the country and Singapore won't let you in if you ...

What she needs to do is to report her marriage and name change to the Korean Embassy and have a new Korean passport issued with her new name. Irregardless of the dual nationality issue, her name changed at marriage and needs to be updated on her Korean documents (passport, DL, etc). As long as her two passports have different names, travel between the ...

My question is: the next time she exits New Zealand to go back to Korea, what passport should she use? The easiest way to do this is the following: Book the tickets using her Korean name. Because she will use both passports (and therefore both names) at different times during travel, her Korean name is the only one that appears in both passports (as ...

Most countries let their nationals leave and enter with very little requirements beyond holding some form of ID. There was and is such a thing as an exit visa in some parts of the world or countries that do not readily issue passports to limit emigration (historically, it was in fact a passport's main purpose) but I would be very surprised if that was the ...

The "enter and exit a country with the same passport" rule is not absolute. It's mostly for if you're visiting a country for a short visit, for entry/departure tracking purposes. In this case, where she naturalized, it's not only possible but expected of her to enter and leave New Zealand with a New Zealand passport, because she is now a New Zealand ...

My suggestion is to use only the New Zealand passport for the trip and book the flight tickets with the name written on the New Zealand passport. New Zealanders don't require a visa to visit South Korea (90 days). The only problem is her dual citizenship situation, New Zealand allows dual citizenship without issues, South Korea has some limitations on this ...

I just got back from vacation on 8/6/2014 to Cancun. We (all USA born citizens) crossed the border into Reynosa Mexico by car and boarded a plane from Reynosa Mexico to Cancun Mexico. I used my driver's license, my brother his passport book and my sister the passport card (you know the one that reads only valid for land and sea). My nephew used his long ...

I can't say much about India specifically, but in most countries in the world, you would proceed as follows: Use the formal rejection by the foreign country's embassy with the stated reason to file that with the police, so that they can mark the passport as invalid/duplicated/stolen in their system. Then, use the confirmation by the police to get a new ...

Generally speaking travel documents for travelling within Schengen zone are: passport or EU/EEA national ID card. Officially none other documents are accepted, however some airlines might be more relaxed in their requirements. RyanAir is not one of these airlines, and RyanAir will not let you travel with just residency permit (I'm also speaking from personal ...

You generally must always enter and exit a country on the same passport. The passport you exit a country with does not have to be the same one as the one you enter the next country with.

For some reason, proof of travel is not required if you apply at the Arkansas Passport Agency, according to Where to Apply. If you've already got an appointment in Atlanta, then perhaps you should call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 and ask them what would be sufficient proof.

I have two passports, I generally book my flight using whichever one works better at the destination. I leave my country of residence using my passport-with-visa. There appears to be no connection between immigration control and the airlines - the airlines want to know that you are able to enter the destination country (or they get a nice big penalty) and my ...

The only significant restriction I know of is that you must enter the US with your US passport (there may be a restriction by the country of issue of your EU passport, but probably not). Therefore you need to carry both passports. It doesn't matter which passport you book your outbound flight with, but it's probably a good idea to book your flight back to ...

Since you are a US citizen, you don't need to worry about the US using passenger records to implement the electronic I-94 system, and the possible confusion that using multiple passports may cause there. You will obviously require your US passport upon returning to the US. You can book all your flights using your EU passport, and keep your US passport ...
