Even if there are general rules on which documents are accepted when entering or leaving the Schengen area, it is up to each member state to decide which documents are recognized and required for a foreigner to stay in the country. This has the odd implication that you as a citizen of a Schengen state don't need a passport to cross the border to another ...

Actually visiting NKR is a crime in Azerbaijan, but you won't get in any kind of problem in Armenia because of visiting Azerbaijan. I visited Armenia with a friend who had an Azerbaijani visa in his passport and in Armenia they asked a couple of questions regarding his visit from Azerbaijan in front of us, then they let him go (I'm an armenian from Iran and ...

Very much like in this answer I would say that it's better to be safe. Hence, in my opinion, you should get a new passport. I tried looking for an Albanian source of information on the topic but could not find any (probably due to my lack of knowledge of Albanian). The best definition of damaged passport I could find is given in the the US Department of ...

No problem. Single names are common, and duplicating them is a common "hack" for entering them on systems that insist on two names.

Comparing with the Italian Passport Both ordinary and frequent traveller Australian passports do indeed seem to cost more than the Italian passport. As of the 19th May 2010 the Italian government issues one single passport format for ordinary citizens. This is an electronic passport, with biometrics, consisting of 48 pages with a 10-year validity. As of ...

To answer your question literally, you can certainly fly within the US with an expired visa. Your driver's license or your passport are both acceptable IDs according to TSA rules and if you show your license I don't think anybody will ask to see any other document. It might even be possible to fly without any of the IDs on the list, see I'm a foreigner, ...

While the UK is a Visa Waiver country, the VWP status has nearly zero advantage for crossing into the US by land, because of the need to park your car, get out, line up, and then fill out an I-94 form (which you also need to pay for). On a busy day, that can easily add an hour or two to your border wait time (especially during an era of currency parity when ...

The airline needs to check your passport for two purposes: To positively identify you to ensure that your name matches the booking; To ensure that you have the proper documentation to enter the destination country. It sounds like in your case, you may need to show both passports to the airline on checkin. One passport will satisfy the identification ...

I'm a UK national with the EU passport and the border control in Amsterdam and Helsinki have both stamped my passport when I asked them to - they didn't mind at all and even had a flick through to see all the stamps from other countries.

I have a Malaysian friend who did it. So yes it is possible. And he did not have any issues with the Malaysian authorities afterwards. I guess they couldn't know about his holiday trip. He took a flight to Jordan (a neighbor country) and from there drove to Israel with a car he rented. He even went to Gaza. I think he did that for the thrill, because he was ...

Every country has the sovereign right to determine who it will or will not allow into its territory. This is irrespective of the views of the country which issued the traveler's identity documents, or any markings thereon. Therefore, the statement "Israel is not recognised by the Malaysian passport" is essentially meaningless. It is entirely up to the ...

It appears that yes, it would work. Or at least it worked in this particular scenario. Jordan Axani and Elizabeth Gallagher return from round the world trip His call was answered and another Elizabeth Gallagher agreed to go on the "once-in-a-lifetime" trip, meeting him for the first time in the departure lounge on December 21. Now the pair are ...

Here is what I found works best Book flights with US passports. US is very picky, Germany is not Check in with US passport (both sides) Exit and enter the US with US passport (you MUST do this, it's a legal requirement) In Germany use whatever immigration line is shorter :-)

This seems quite simple. India wants proof of your status in the USA, so get it for them. Walk into US immigration, explain what's happening, and get a letter from them declaring your status as H1B, about to expire, not being renewed, and that the US Government would appreciate it if you departed the country before a particular date. Signed, stamped, with a ...

At http://passport.blsindia-usa.com/sample_form/Affidavit_for_Status_Example_file.pdf (linked from here) there is an example of a declaration meant to be made by out-of-status Indian citizens in the US when applying for passport renewal. It doesn't seem to be directly applicable to you, because it requires a good reason that you have not renewed in time -- ...

I believe the reason that the Indian consulate requires proof of valid status to issue you a passport, is because they are trying to prevent people who have naturalized in the U.S., and thus have automatically lost Indian citizenship, from still pretending to be Indian citizens. Having proof of valid non-citizen status proves that you currently (or recently) ...

From the South African high commission website: Any foreigner who leaves the Republic after the expiry of his or her permit shall be liable to an administrative fine of a prescribed amount not exceeding R3000.00 which fine shall be imposed by the Department on detection of the overstay and exacted when such foreigner is admitted or makes an ...

You were refused an entry clearance to the UK, but still may qualify under Paragraph 23A of the rules to apply for leave to enter at a border point. And your question is: should you try for leave to enter? The UK has a (working) policy that people in your situation should continue to apply for entry clearance until they are successful, and after that you ...

It is best to contact British authorities in order avoid legal issues. You can speak with someone using a live-chat with the UK Border Agency for a fee here. As an alternative, I would contact the British Embassy in the USA. Phone: +1 202 588 6500 Email: britishembassyenquiries@gmail.com In regards to checking visa requirements, although it isn't ...

There all sorts of circumstances that will set off red lights for either is rarely security officials or immigration officials. If you're flying Israel's national carrier El Al you will definitely have problems going through security . Give yourself plenty of time to be interviewed him multiple times by Israeli security agents and prescreening and perhaps ...

You have a UK passport due to expire in 5 1/2 months and are travelling to a country where 6 months validity is required. At the time of your arrival, your passport will have 5 months remaining until expiry. There is a very slim discretionary zone in Kuwait for entering without a valid passport as they define it. They might forgive a day or so if you are ...

This is what the law says (8 USC 1185(b), also known as INA 215(b)): Except as otherwise provided by the President and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may authorize and prescribe, it shall be unlawful for any citizen of the United States to depart from or enter, or attempt to depart from or enter, the United States ...
