Nowdays, when you ask for a fragile sticker, they make you sign a waiver for baggage damage (Limited release) , so its purely for the airlines benefit, they know they dont need to compensate you if they damage something in your baggage if you mark it as fragile

From experience, if it doesn't fit WITHIN their measuring boxes, they won't allow it. This means that if it doesn't fit with/depth, or if it sticks out the top (as you're saying with the laptop), they'll deem it too large. If your case is soft and can be folded up, I'd suggest considering having the case in your pocket, so that the laptop still fits in the ...

At the moment, the general consensus is that Bitcoin is not a currency (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin, under 'Economics'). For the US and Canada, this page is pretty clear on what you need to declare when entering. Though a similar text for the UK explicitly states that the maximum amount refers to 'currencies', the US and Canada page refers to ...

Mark Mayo's answer is the best answer to this question; it is an appeal to common sense. I simply wanted to add some legal context for the UK. There are intersecting regulations for the EEA as a whole which are roughly similar. The 'generic' answer is that gun permits are generally issued by individual states, like Kentucky or Arizona. Individual states ...

Being a US citizen certainly does not exempt one from local laws, even visiting countries close to home. The OP didn't ask about Mexico, but it serves as a good case in point. From wikipedia: "The US Department of State warns US citizens [and all persons regardless of citizenship] against taking any firearm or ammunition into Mexico without prior written ...

Travelling with a firearm (in general) I've actually seen this scenario, where there has been an assumption by the (US) traveller that they would just be able to enter another country with their firearm. However, as @Mark Mayo states, each country has their own laws in this regard. It's important to realise other countries are likely to have much stricter ...

Every country has their own laws governing handguns. Your license is for the US, under US (or state-specific) laws. Firstly, you'd have trouble at the border, as you generally need permission or a license to carry a gun onboard a plane, boat, train, or bus, or across borders. Secondly, you would need a license under the laws of the country you're visiting ...

No, it isn't generally allowed but it is indeed foreseen by the Schengen regulation when the queues are particularly unbalanced. When it does happen, whether third-country nationals (i.e. non-EU/EEA/Swiss) are allowed to use other lanes is up to the border guards. The rules about this are defined in article 9 of the Schengen Borders code. 2. (a) ...

Most cruise companies will allow passengers to embark and disembark at any port they dock at, so if the question is "does such a ticket exist", the answer is yes. However, it might be more expensive than a whole-cruise ticket. For a lot of cruises, buying a ticket direct from the cruise line can prove more expensive than a package of flights and ticket ...

Based on my experience, I see nothing at all in such a kit that would raise any objections in checked baggage. They might open it up and have a look but there's nothing dangerous there. Except the silicone sealant they're all inert parts and nothing is going to leak out. Only flammable adhesives (which silicone is not) are prohibited. Suggest leaving the ...
