"Transit (C) visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons traveling in immediate and continuous transit through the United States enroute to another country" "A foreign citizen whose layover in the United States is for a primary purpose other than to transit, for example to visit friends or sightsee, requires a visitor (B) visa." Ref: ...

The two stations are on opposite sides of the same road. 15 minutes is a pessimistic estimate to get from a platform in one to a platform in the other, allowing for someone who doesn't know their way around, walks slowly, gets held up by crowds throughout, etc.

I do not exactly see the problem here. What are you asking? Is five hours enough for your cousin to go through UK immigration, transfer between the terminals, check in again and go through security? Sure, that's plenty. Yesterday someone asked whether 2:35 is enough and I went through and showed it's tight but 5 hours is aplenty. What other concerns are ...

Although United and American probably do have an interline baggage agreement (most of the larger IATA members do), and are probably capable legally and operationally of transferring bags directly, it is up to the discretion of each airline whether or not to do so. And most US carriers have been increasingly reluctant to do so over the last few years as they ...

If you travel Portugal - Germany - Egypt, you will stay in the Schengen area till you leave Germany, you will have an internal Schengen area flight and get out of the Schengen area when you leave Germany. If your layover is long enough you can leave the airport. For most European airports they advise not to leave the airport if your stop is less than 5 ...

According to the TSA's web site: If the name printed on my boarding pass is different than what appears on my government ID, will I be turned away at security and unable to fly? Boarding passes may not always display the exact name you provided when booking your travel. The name you provide is used to perform watch list matching before a ...

According to Timatic you will require a visa: Transit passengers are required to hold a passport or passport replacing document required to enter Canada. Passport required.

Dublin Airport is one of the rare European airports without an airside international transit area (with a minor exception that doesn't apply here). Everyone arriving at the airport from another country must clear Irish immigration before continuing onward. For this reason, anyone passing through here must either have a transit or short-stay visa or be ...

Platform choice is key here. A and 2 are at opposite ends of their respective stations. Platform A is in a basement level of St Pancras. Here's an interactive map of St Pancras: you're in the top right corner (you might need to scroll right to find it). You need to come up two levels, go through the ticket barriers, turn left and walk through the ...

In a nutshell, everything is possible: dropping the car off in another German city, renting in Austria and dropping it off in Germany or vice versa. You will pay a premium for one-way rentals and then extra on top of that for cross-border one-way rentals. But you can do it with all the major international brands. Beyond that, German motorways are not quite ...

Start at the end, by arranging the flight out of Germany. Choose the city of departure that is the most convenient regarding prices and schedules. This way you will have fixed three parameters: the arrival in Bucharest and departure from Bucharest as well as the departure from Germany. Then, choose a flight between Bucharest and Germany. Choose again a ...

If you don't need a visa to visit Canada, then you don't need one to transit through it. A government of Canada page makes it simple to check your country. I checked Jordan for you, and you would need a visa to visit. Of those who need a visa to visit, only four countries in the world qualify for Transit Without Visa through Canada: Indonesia Thailand ...

Based upon what's written, you will not be successful in applying for a Schengen visa. This is because your status in the UK is visitor. Even though your visa has a two year duration, the limit of 6 months does not qualify as a South African who is resident in the UK, and hence the French will refuse your application. You may be able to qualify for a ...

If both your flights are on Malaysia Airlines, you do not need to pass through Immigration, just board your next flight.

Because United and American do not have Interline Agreements in place. Interline agreements address the issues of transfering passenger data from one airline to the next, which in turn effects the transfer of baggage. If two airlines do not have an agreement, then bags will have to be claimed and then rechecked with the next airline. The lack of interline ...

While the phrase "transit" is not clarified in the ESTA Online help it is amply clarified on the transit visa page: A passenger embarking from a foreign port on a cruise ship or other vessel which is proceeding to another country, other than the United States, but during the course of the journey, the vessel makes port in the United States with no ...

You only need one kind of visa, and the one you need will be determined by the purpose of your visit to the UK. If your previous Business Visit visa has not yet expired, you can use that to safely transit. On your outbound journey (UAE to Columbia), you'll need a DATV (airside transit visa) if you are transiting through the same airport and are not going ...

A little confused as I can't find a current flight via Reno connecting Hnl to xna. http://www.flyxna.com/airlines-flights/airlines/ However assuming that it is actually via Las Vegas. I looked at the actual operating airlines, so American flights could actually be operated by Envoy air or Mesa Air branded as American eagle, and the United flights as ...

Munich has an international area, so if you stay in the same terminal, travel on the same ticket both legs and check in for the entire voyage, it is fairly likely that you will be able to transfer within the secure area.

You need to visit the Do I need a Transit Visa page. Check whether your passport makes you to be in the "Categories of eligible travellers". The Criteria you seem to have fulfilled: enter Australia by Aircraft leave within 8 hours, not need to leave the airport transit lounge except to continue their journey -- with this timeframe, I will presume you ...

The inter-terminal shuttle at Gatwick is airside, and will take you to the other terminal without clearing border control. The shuttle takes about two minutes and will add nothing significant to your transit time. So the change of terminals makes no difference. However you say you have to collect bags. I presume from this that you bags are not checked ...

If this doesn't affect the price of your flight tickets, I would suggest to fly to one city, e.g. Berlin, drive to the other end of Germany, eg. Munich while stopping at Frankfurt or Nuremberg and then fly home. I see little sense in driving back to the arrival airport, unless this affects the price of the flight tickets or the rental car (one-way rentals ...

An airport transit visa (ATV) does not make sense in this scenario, that much seems clear. Article 3 of the Schengen Visa Code (emphasis mine) provides that Nationals of the third countries listed in Annex IV shall be required to hold an airport transit visa when passing through the international transit areas of airports situated on the territory ...

You'll get a better answer calling your airline. Does the flight UK > Dublin > US have simply a scale in Dublin or do you have to land there? Normally if it's just transfer you don't have to pick up your luggage. But if you do, then you have to enter the border control and therefore you need the visa. Just ask them this, they are the ones who will be able to ...

if it is with the same company and you don’t have to re check you baggage then I don’t see any problems, but you have to be aware that they might be delays do weather or others conditions, if you have to re check your baggage I find it pretty difficult so I would advise you against unless the airline takes responsibility for you to be on time or else send ...

There is a free shuttle bus between the two terminals. In addition, there are golf carts standing by at some cost. Details can be found on the Vietnam airports website, which says: Passengers can use shuttle bus (free of charge for transit passengers) to transport between T1 and T2 terminal. Time of operation: From 06h00 to 24h00 (local time); ...

Having checked luggage seems to be the factor that requires travellers to get visas because they have to collect their luggage and check it with their airline This is simply not true. Immigration and customs go hand in hand -- they won't build an entire "sterile" transit section and put relevant rules in effect for the few people who don't have luggage. ...

OK ... I got this reply from UK Immigration and Visas Enquiry: "If you intend to both visit and transit the UK, you should apply for both a transit and a visitor category UK visa, as per your purpose of coming to the UK. Please, be advised that you must be holding a valid UK visa fit for your purpose of coming to the UK to be able to enter or transit the ...

You probably already flew, but for others here is some recommendation for caution. You actually are aware of the issues you would run into, but I think you underestimate the time you need. As the comments suggest, a travel insurance might help you in case of delays. And as Wikitravel recommends, 3 to 4 hours might be necessary for domestic to international ...
