Yes you can do this but be aware of the following things: You might have completely different (harder-to-obtain) visa requirements, check carefully before! In case of a delay of your first flight (A to C) you loose your second ticket (C to B) under most ticket conditions. If you travel with check-in luggage you likely have to re-check your bags. This ...

I do this all the time and I always book the C-B flight connecting to the next A-C flight. I am rarely time constrained and spending a day in a hotel is not a big issue for me (I work remotely anyways). Yes, this means the cost of the hotel needs to be factored in. However, as mentioned in the original post, you might be doing this for other reasons than ...

If you booked the journey as one ticket you are guaranteed to be transported to your final destination (JFK) regardless of whether you make the connection at BRU or not. Indeed, if you miss the connection the airline will re-route you on a different flight. Having said this, what happens when you land at BRU and have to transfer? You will arrive at gates A ...

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 ...

Exactly. If you're not leaving anything in the US, $0 is the value of the goods remaining the US (because there aren't any). If you aren't sure about something on the form, you can always ask the officers too.

Yes, since Honolulu is your first stop in the United States, that is where you need to collect your luggage, carry it through customs, and re-drop it for your onward flight. That's how it works for all international arrivals to any U.S. airport. The flight from Honolulu to San Diego is U.S. domestic.

Switzerland – while not part of the European Union – belongs to the Schengen area so you don't need anything else than a Schengen visa. You won't even leave the Schengen area (or, in all likelihood, see any border guard) before leaving Zurich.

I do not understand the problem but let's break it down. I presume you do not want to check into a hotel at Stockholm but rather want to wait it out in the transit area. I will presume you are a citizen of the United States. If this is not the case, things get more complicated. Citizens of the US are exempt from Schengen short stay visas so you are welcome ...

No. Your luggage will not be transferred as you are connecting on the ground between two different airports. If you are travelling on a single ticket, you will still be protected and able to rebook in case of any inbound delays. British Airways - by far the largest carrier serving both airports - for example has the following to say: You must collect ...

After some investigation I got the answers. UAE allows transit without visa when the time between connecting flights is less than 24 hours. You can not receive and check-in your luggage yourself in Dubai without getting out of the transit terminal. But there is a special service for such cases - Marhaba Service. You don't need to preorder anything - when ...

As a Vietnamese citizen, you need to obtain a Schengen visa (a normal transit visa) in order to transit through Stockholm. There are two kinds of transit, airport (airside) transit and a normal transit. You need to normal transit visa since you need to enter the country, collect your bags and then board your next flight. The airport (airside) transit visa ...

When an airline sells you (or a re-seller) tickets for a multi-stop flight, they imply that it is reasonably possible to change planes. Brussels Airport is not very large (in comparison to, say, Atlanta), so walking distances are reasonably short. Nevertheless, for any connecting flight, it's usually a good idea to go straight through all security controls ...

Keeping in mind things could be slower at Brussels Airport due to recent events, the minimum transfer time is around 50min (according to Brussels Airlines) so if passport control goes quickly you should be fine with the time you have.

Yes, it seems plausible, but you have to comply with all of the AVR requirements: not ever being out of status your SEVIS record must be current and active and others per CBP Couple suggestions Layover means entering US and exiting US. You will deal with US immigration (CBP) in Toronto pre-flight inspection. From personal experience with AVR, you ...

U.S. Preclearance is in Terminal 3 at Abu Dhabi. There will be signs both landside and airside in arrival areas showing the way. Just follow the Flight Transfer signs. If you don't have your boarding pass, stop at the airline's transfer desk. If you need to transfer from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3, the airport has provided a video showing how this is done. ...

There's no problem with this itinerary on multiple entry B1/B2 visas. Such visas are also good for transit, in addition to business and tourism. The only situation in which you might have a problem is if you fly into the US and then drive into Canada. But this doesn't seem to be anywhere on your itinerary. (In this case you should inform the immigration ...

The answer is the same either way, for two reasons: The UK and Ireland share a Common Travel Area, similar to but entirely separate from Schengen. If you arrive in either country, bound for the other, you clear immigration in the first country of arrival. In your case, you will clear immigration in Dublin, regardless of which airline you use or whether you ...

Official processing times are at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/ (select Visiting -> Visitor Visa). Make sure you actually need a visa first (as opposed to, say, just an electronic travel authorization - it depends on your country of citizenship). I don't know which country you're from, but for many countries the processing times are short ...

Irrespective of the method of entry you will need a visa. You can check your eligibility on the CIC Website as well as apply online for it. Generally speaking if you're driving on the road 4 hours that you spend in Canada doesn't warrant needing to stay anywhere along the route. it is also possible that depending on where you're driving from in Illinois ...

If you need to re-check your luggage upon landing at DXB then you'll need a visa to enter Dubai. Luckily this is a somewhat easy procedure for Indian citizens. You can either transit without visa, or request a 96-hour transit visa on arrival. Quoting from the Emirates website: Transit - United Arab Emirates (AE) Visa Visa required. TWOV ...

If you are comfortable with trains, you can make the trip in 90-120 minutes, depending on your time of departure. This comes down to whether you check or carry-on, your facility in navigating the airport/rail station, and your tolerance for OJ Simpson-like sprints to the departure gates. Personally, I'd plan more time between flights. Here is a link for ...

I had the exact same situation, only I had 1 month time before I could travel (using Air Canada ticket). I was also traveling from US to India, via Toronto (2 hr stopover). The website say 12 days to process application for transit visa, its been 25days and there's still no status change on my application online. Worst part is that you cannot even call a ...
