As a general principle, the entire Schengen area is considered one country for immigration purposes. This means in particular that a flight between two Schengen countries (in your case, Spain and Italy) is considered a domestic flight and there is no immigration control before or after the flight. Hence, in your case you will enter the Schengen area and ...

In general, it is the passenger's responsibility to ensure that they obtain any required visa(s) before commencing travel. The airline will check the passenger's passport to see whether they have the required visa(s), but it is still the passenger's responsibility to get them. (The airline checks because they are responsible for returning you to your point ...

From the new rules that activated yesterday, these parts were REMOVED from the rules... you’re travelling from (or on part of a reasonable journey from) Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA and have a valid visa for that country you’re travelling from (or on part of a reasonable journey from) Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA and ...

Normally on a technical stop passengers remain on the aircraft while they take care of whatever the reason is for the stop. Likely in your case, since it has been scheduled in advance, they are stopping to refuel. As there is no disembarking or embarking, there are no immigration issues or requirements.

You should not have any problems. It is common to use just initials when the name is too lengthy. If you are too concerned then just take your credit or debit card that you used to buy the ticket with you and present at the time of check in if they ask you. My own name is pretty long but not as long as yours and I have used just my initials for air tickets ...

"Airline transit passengers travelling with a stopover at Dubai Airport (or other UAE airport) who do not leave the terminal building, do not need a UAE visa since they are not entering the UAE.

You're not going to get any references to back this up, because no official source in the UAE is ever going to say "We love Jews! Please transit!" or "We hate Jewish-sounding people, regardless of their actual religion or their passports!". That said, despite public huffing and puffing, the UAE's morals are famously flexible when it comes to making money, ...

No, you don't need a transit visa. A transit visa is to allow you to temporarily enter a country, for example, to change planes. You already have a visa that allows you to enter the USA so you don't need another one just because you're changing planes.

Yes, visitors (and transit passengers) from nearly all countries require a visa to enter India. Recently (27 November 2014), India implemented ETA procedures, which allow citizens of over 40 countries including Australia, to apply for a tourist visa online. See the Indian government site Tourist Visa on Arrival for more details and online application forms. ...

In practice, if you want to do it yourself online, you have to use the “multi-city ticket” option, i.e. instead of looking for a return ticket and then somehow adding stopovers, you would search for a trip with four legs: Jakarta-San Francisco, San Francisco-Los Angeles, Los Angeles-Tokyo, and finally Tokyo-Jakarta. Multi-city searches are not available ...

I found a website where the bus connection is shown. But obviously it isn't such a good route as the person stated it would be, so probably I will take a bus to Salvador and then a transfer via boat to Morro de Sao Paulo. Seems to be the fastest and cheapest alternative, though I didn't expect it to be...

If all your flights are booked on the same ticket, this means that the minimum connection time for this connection is met (unless your travel agent circumvented some rules, which they normally not do). Passport checks in Dusseldorf are usually quite quick. Please keep the comments to your original post in mind - you will need a "proper" Schengen visa for ...

40 minutes could be enough but it could become scarce. As your second leg is a domestic Schengen flight, you will need to get through security and passport check. With only 40 minutes between the flights it's likely to miss the flight to Munich.

This official page states: All residence permits issued by the Danish immigration authorities in the form of a residence sticker, or a residence card, which is valid for Denmark, is also valid for entering and staying in other Schengen countries. Based on that it seems unlikely that you're right that your visa is valid only for Denmark. What exactly ...

You only need a visa if you wish to enter the country. You can leave the aircraft during the stop so long as you remain in the international lounge of the terminal. Just don't go through immigration (passport control). Transit Visa According to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, a transit visa is required "if passengers are required to ...

I recently traveled through Schiphol and there are plenty of comfortable seating areas (well padded couches) and lots of power points so you should be very comfortable. The specific area I had in mind was next to departures gate E08. There are also automated relax/massage chairs that operate by coin which you can use to time out for a while. There are 24 ...

Though its not your primary concern, even most of my visas do not carry my own given name, i.e. the printed version does not show it, it gets cut off. My full passport name is 8 characters longer than yours, and shortening of 2 parts of my name is the common solution I arrive at for the purpose of airline tickets, while visas print as much as they can. As ...

Actually, the rules for airside transit do not apply. You will simply enter the Schengen area in Amsterdam. After that, you won't have any entries left on your visa but you can still fly to Norway or to other Schengen countries. As far as the number of entries is concerned, you could therefore just as well leave the airport, spend a day in Amsterdam and fly ...

Like you I have a big name and airlines always screw up with names. I don't think it should be a problem, if someone ask you can explain the same reason you stated. I don't think they care that much about every letter of names.

Yes, Indian citizens require a visa for the US, no matter how long or whether it's just a connecting flight. Some countries can use the Visa Waiver Program, while others, including India, need to apply for a visa (source: US Department of State). For information on applying for a visa, I recommend having a look at Immigroup's page on US visas. More info ...

I am posting this as an answer because I would like to get downvoted if I am wrong. The other answers seem to indicate that you dont need a transit visa for landing and taking off from Australia, however if I read this immigration authority page and then proceed to read the exception list in this page from the same site you will need a visa if you are not ...

Both Paris and Amsterdam are in the Schengen zone, and so your question is answered in Regulation (EC) No 810/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009. Article 3 states in part... Nationals of the third countries listed in Annex IV shall be required to hold an airport transit visa when passing through the international ...

You would need a visa to get out of the airport. Australians can now avail visa on arrival in India but it would cost $60 per person and to make it easier for yourself you can apply for the visa online and also make a payment.
