Transit visas are not valid for transit to the Republic of Ireland (here and here). This is because, due to the CTA, you must pass through border control and enter UK territory to board the flight (I am not sure why the Visitor in Transit Visa does not apply, as it is specifically for those who need to pass through Border Control). You have two options: If ...

It did sound a bit crazy at first, but with a bit of luck, it should be doable, at least if you do have a driver on hand and your incoming flight is not delayed. Rotterdam airport is tiny, no time lost walking to the baggage claim area and exit or anything, you can literally be in front of the terminal building in 5 min. At Schiphol, EasyJet flights depart ...

U.S. citizens can visit Japan without a visa anyway, so there's certainly no need to get one for transiting. Regarding the second part of your question, you don't have to pass through immigration at Narita on an international-to-international connection. From the Narita airport's page on international-to-international connections: When connecting ...

Copying from comment to answer: If you do not need a visa for entering the country then you do not need a visa to transit because you could, in theory, always transit by leaving airside and entering the country and then go to your next flight. "Sterile" transit if it exists it does to accommodate those who can not do this because they would need a visitor ...

The UK does issue a special category of Visitor in Transit visas, but they are only for stays of at most 48 hours. For a 4-5 day stopover you'll need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa, which costs £87. (That's if you need a visa for the UK in the first place, of course -- I assume so, since otherwise you probably wouldn't have asked, but I don't know ...

The length of time that an airline will hold checked baggage during long layovers is determined by the policies of the airline AND of the airport. Some airports have secure storage for over night holds, some do not. I have had baggage stay checked during a 22 hour layover and have had to claim it during an 8 hour layover. In your case you would need to ...

First of all, Terminal 3 at DXB is HUGE but it is a friendly place. Directions up/down/left/right changes based on which concourse and gate she arrives in. Even for frequent travellers, only way to navigate through the terminal after each arrival is to closely follow the signs or to ask Emirates/dnata(ground handling team) employees. Once she enters the ...

Immigration happens in Munich (i.e. where you are first arriving in the Schengen area). Two hours should be enough time to pass through immigration and change planes. If both of your flights are on one booking in fact Lufthansa will get you on a later flight to Dusseldorf in case of delays and deems that time enough since they were willing to sell you this ...

If you arrive at Terminal 1 on a through ticket, or have checked your luggage to final destination, or are travelling with hand luggage only, you should be able to do an airside transfer from terminal 1. Terminal 5 is only for security checks for departing passengers and after passing security, all airside facilities actually exist at Terminal 3, including ...

My wife has done this particular one several times. And you will be going through passport control in Kyiv at arrival from London. But if you prefer you can look at the site of Borispyl's airport site: If you arrive at Boryspil airport by international flight and proceed to the domestic departure you don’t have to claim your baggage. After you ...

One option might be to transit through Dubai. From Visa policy of the United Arab Emirates: Passengers on all international airlines may enter the United Arab Emirates for 96 hours after obtaining a transit visa at the airport. The time difference between the two flights must be over 8 hours and the passenger must continue to a third destination. ...

Latvia and Denmark are both in the Schengen area, so no matter which passport you have, Riga is where it will be checked. After you pass though the Schengen outer border in Riga, immigration authorities won't care whether you go into the city or take a connecting intra-Schengen flight (or both). For a flight connection on a single ticket, on a single ...

What this refers to is the necessity of claiming your baggage, going through customs once more, then re-checking it again for your next flight. The process is pretty straightforward so you already know what you need to do, just as if you had arrived at your final destination, go to the carousel get your bag, proceed to customs, then to the airline counter to ...

Copenhagen is in Denmark, and Helsinki in Finland. For border purposes, Denmark and Finland are actually in the same "Country", called the Schengen Area (or Schengen for short). Therefore Copenhagen-Helsinki flights are practically domestic, so you only clear Immigration in Helsinki - that's when you exit Schengen.

When passing through passport control in Finland, simply Show the refusal letter. Since it contains the date by which the Swedish Migration board has ordered you to Exit Schengen, you would not be treated as an overstayer even if your visa is expired

Per the airport site: Will I need a UAE visa? You won’t require a UAE transit visa if you are staying in the airport for a period of four hours or less.

Switzerland is a Schengen country, so immigration clearance will happen in Zurich. Assuming you are booked through on a single airline ticket, your bags should be checked through to Dusseldorf and you will not need to claim them in Zurich though. You will not need a transit visa for Zurich, as your Schengen visa will be good for both Switzerland and ...

Is it on one ticket? Then you'll be perfectly fine. If not, I highly doubt it since you have both in- and outbound passport checks (to collect and re-check baggage), and the Queues could very well be long

Assuming that this is all on one ticket under a single confirmation number, you should receive boarding passes for both flights when you check-in at SFO and your bags should be checked through to PUJ. When you check-in, just confirm that this is the case with the agent who tags your bags. Note that, for the reverse trip, when you fly back into the United ...

Yes. The visa sticker need not have an entry stamp. The other answer appears to be confused because some people use the term "visa stamp" to refer to the visa sticker, and "visa stamping" to refer to the insertion of the visa sticker into the passport. However, it is obvious from the question that you are asking about the inked entry stamp, which, when a ...
