There's no mention of electronic boards etc in the TSA prohibited items list. So provided they aren't so heavy as to be a potential "blunt instrument" weapon, you should be ok. If they're in original packaging, that might help. Of course, they don't have to let any items through, restricted list or not. You may also wish to check the website of your ...

If I was a customs officer and I saw one person has a visa to stay, and the other does not but bought a one way ticket I would most certainly assume that person planned to stay. And in fact, she does. Don't start your time here with a lie. Call whoever is processing her visa and ask what to do. She may have to change her flights and stay back until the ...

In general it is allowed to volunteer in the US when you are there on a B1 or B2 visa, or on visa waiver program, and for most other visas that do not permit paid employment. However there are some significant restrictions, and it is best to check them out. The most significant restriction is that you can only volunteer to do things that are normally done ...

Building on Calchas' comment, my coworkers and I have carried large, odd-looking electronic research equipment onto international flights on numerous occasions, on different airlines, departing from and passing through different airports. We have never had a problem. Usually, bags containing such equipment are given extra screening; security will pull us ...

In principle it is possible. However, one has to foresee one or two extra steps before starting to plan the trip per se. Your friend should first talk to his doctor. He is the person to ask. In principle dialysis patients can travel, but not without receiving green light from their doctors. The local hospitals can assist patients to make the necessary ...

Actually your first concern will be the airline, as rules require them to make sure you have the correct documentation to enter Canada BEFORE they let you on the plane. It is entirely possible that they could prohibit your girlfriend from flying. Once you get to Canada, it is a crap shoot, they may simply take her word that she is visiting only for a few ...

keeping them sealed in the original packaging might help too, with receipt and original packaging it is easy to explain what it does if the question arises.

Though a little off-topic, I can give some hint about south Asia. Just bring the medical docs and consulting doctor's recommendations. And, of course sufficient regular medications and surely some more $$$. Arrangement is simple. see an local Nephrologist doctor. Every big city have some. Get the local prescription. Make sure you also showed him your ...

No, as a Swiss citizen you do not need a visa for visits up to 90 days. References: Official Argentinean Immigration (Spanish), TIMATIC, Wikipedia

From the FAQ of the Canadian Embassy in Austria: I do not have a return ticket. Can I travel to Canada with a one-way ticket? We strongly recommend that travellers who enter as tourists present a return ticket upon entry into Canada, but this is not a legal requirement. Port of Entry officers may want to see proof that the person entering ...

You're proposing to bring this device through a security checkpoint: The more interesting question is, will they even realize that it contains liquid? Seems doubtful to me, simply because it doesn't look anything like a water bottle. Chances are it'll go right through without comment. But based solely on the device's construction I would not want to ...

I have taken robots the size and shape of a soda can on a carry on that look far "scarier" than a graphics card (gpu is the chip), and no one batted an eye.

Also I would look into shipping them to your home in Switzerland... Extra Cost vs Fear of getting them confiscated. Especially if after shipping they are still cheaper than what you would pay in your home country.

Considering that laptops and smartphones are allowed, both containing GPUs, I really doubt that taking a graphics card as carry-on would be an issue.

Officially if entering the US via land border then you do not need an ESTA, however you are still able to use the Visa Waiver Program as you come from a country that is allowed under the Visa Waiver Program. At the border you will be required to fill in a I94W form, be photographed/finger-printed, and pay a US$6 fee. There have recently been reports that ...
