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 ...

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.

It pretty much depends on the passeport you have (from which country) and the country you're visiting. Some e-visas are totally E (electornic) and some other are juste a way to substitute the traditional visa application way.

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 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.

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.

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

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

Instead of passport of original country, Macao Permanent Resident can enter HK with Macao SAR Permanent Resident Identity Card and Visit Permit for Residents of Macao SAR to Hong Kong SAR for <30days. The Visit Permit is valid for 7 years and holder can visit the HK on multiple occasions. Applicant should make the application in person in the ...

Generally, airlines worry most about you holding a VISA for the destination country. I have left the US many times forgetting to return my I-94, but I obviously had an entry record for that passport. However, it is illegal for US citizens to enter or leave the US on another than a US passport. Since you are a US citizen, you can not obtain a US visa (for ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

An affidavit is a formal legal statement, taken under oath and witnessed by a legal official such as a Notary public. You can find more information here.

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 ...

Birth certificate can be used for immigration with parents. Bssed on gov.uk Travelling with children You may be asked at the border to prove the relationship between yourself and any children travelling with you, if you don’t seem to be the parent, eg if you have a different surname. You can prove this with: a birth or adoption certificate showing your ...

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.

I have the same situation and have traveled extensively. There where a few reasons why to use two passports on one trip: Exiting one country which I have a passport to and entering the other country to which I am a citizen (must use the right passport for each country). Was running out of space for stamps on the passport (just lazy to get a new one) Going ...

It's unlikely that this would cause a problem. The reason the car rental company would want to see your passport is that it's picture identification. When you sign the rental agreement, the fact that you're standing there is sufficient for them. The fact that the signature doesn't "match" is not relevant. If things were to ever get to the point where you ...

It isn't really the airline's decision to choose which travel document you travel on. Yes, we all know for instance that you should enter the USA on the US passport (by law—if you have one), but should you enter the UK on your US passport or your Greek passport? The document you use will depend on the purpose of your visit, and your own circumstances. And ...

The countries that do not allow dual citizenship are very many more than just China and showing passports indicating two nationalities to an official of one of these may get the holder into trouble. Even where dual citizenship is not an issue, an entry stamp in one passport and an exit one in another may be inconvenient.

10 years ago I was traveling from country A to country B, country A is my so-called home country. Like I explained in an other question it's one of the most corrupted countries. The officer insisted on knowing how am I going to enter country B. $50 dollars done the trick and he stamped passport A not my British passport. Country B had no problem with ...

This is a common situation, and it's generally no problem. I'll use A for the country you're in, and B for the country you're going to, but all the "flows" described here work equally well if you want to use your B passport to go to a third country. Case 1: Same name, dual citizenship OK If you have the same name in both passports (that is, same first ...
