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 ...

Short Answer The short answer to your question is you should check the "staying" box since the purpose of your layover is to visit friends. The duration of this layover is not important according to US immigration laws. What matters is the purpose. See below for the explanation. Long Answer Defining Transit vs Stay I believe that the temporal ...

The UK has two kinds of transit visa. Direct Airside Transit Visa has a 24 hour limit and will not let you come through immigration - so you can't use it if you want to change airport or go sightseeing. Visitor in Transit has a 48 hour limit and allows you to go through immigration. You can use your 48 hours for sightseeing, visiting people, or anything else ...

Assuming you're a Thai citizen, you do not need a visa for stays in Japan of up to 15 days, so you are free to leave the airport. Go through immigration normally, state "transit" as purpose of visit, and show your onward boarding pass if needed. For what it's worth, you don't even need to leave the airport to get sushi, there's a decent restaurant in the ...

As you mention, your passport has no issue with immigration to Japan, then it just comes down to what you're doing there. You'll be able to show you have an exit flight from Japan, so that's fine, and that you want to just leave the airport for a few hours. Indeed, I did this exact thing in June - I had a few more hours than you, so I had the day in Tokyo, ...

Well, you've not given any real information from which we can assist you, like times, flight numbers, or even airlines. However, for an example, today's arrivals from MCO (Orlando) at or around 4:30ish pm, all come into Terminal C, gate 83. About an hour later, 3 flights depart to ARN (Stockholm) from Terminal C, gate 94. These two gate are about 5-10 ...

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, ...

Valenca is right next to Morro, so it should not be a surprise that trip will be much cheaper. I'm convinced you'd be able to get local transport to Valenca through Feira, but it's likely to be cumbersome and time consuming. Typically, for out of the way destinations, local public transport might only be available a few times per day. As an alternative, ...

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 didn't manage to find the duplicate, so I'll try to make a summary answer.) It all depends on two big aspects: Do you have one ticket (with transfer) or two separate tickets? To which country do you fly? If you have one ticket with transfer, then you should get checked in for both flights in Prague. I recommend to arrive the advised 2 hours before ...

You have enough time it hardly takes 15 to 20 minutes to go from T1C to T3 and the check-in counter closes only before 90 minutes and there is also a Shuttle transfer between T1C to T3 every 1/2 hour you just have to produce Boarding pass Onward Journey Ticket

It kind of depends what type of Iraqi passport you have. I honestly haven't come across such a thing before, but am guessing it's post regime-change or something. From Timaticweb: Admission and transit refused to holders of Iraqi "S" series passports. So if you have one of those, you may have an issue getting in. However: Holders of ...

Aer Lingus is working closely with BA (they used to be part of Oneworld and still have codeshares) so I am pretty sure they should be able to check your luggage through. They do mention it on their website as well: Aer Lingus will through-check baggage as a courtesy onto any carrier that have a baggage agreement in place, upon presentation of ...

If you are on transit through Newark, then you don't need to worry about transfer time. If you are on a point-to-point journey, then you would have to do the following: Deplane Collect your luggage (if any) Check-in for the next flight (so if you have luggage, you'll have to check in that) and get your boarding pass. Go through security So, schedule ...

You will NOT go through customs in San Francisco. All Canada->US flights go through US immigration/customs in Canada before you depart. On arrival in the US you are basically treated as a domestic passenger - no need to go through customs/immigration, no need to re-clear security (presuming your flights are not in different terminals that are not connected ...

Your daughter will not need a visa to transit at Mumbai if she remains airside; she would just take the lift to the departures area after going through security. This will happen if the flights are on a single booking. If the flights are booked separately, and the luggage not checked through, she may need to collect her luggage and check it in again, which ...

The UK government is in the midst of porting their entire content into the gov.uk framework and UKVI is a part of that migration. Additionally, UKVI are revising large portions of their guidance, notably the Immigration Directorate Instructions and their entry clearance guidance. As a result, it's natural to expect some of the pages to be out-of-sync or ...

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 ...

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...

Changing Terminals at EWR I just found this nifty tool which allows you to compute the journey between terminals within one of several US airports. I ran a search, landing at Newark EWR and going from terminal A to terminal C (same thing seems to apply between B and C). Here is a lik the result. It turns out there is a shuttle connecting the terminals, and ...

Indian citizens do not need a visa to transit in Brussels (assuming your son is doing it on one ticket and can check his luggage through so that he won't need to leave the transit lounge of the airport), see Transit visa for Brussels for Indian citizens Consequently, an Indian passport should be enough, a US visa or evidence of his status there is not ...

No. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen, holding only an Indian passport. You cannot collect baggage without a visa, as the baggage claim is after immigration. You also cannot get a boarding pass without checking in on your Turkish airlines flight at India. To do this, you would have to leave the transit area in Dubai and then enter again at Terminal ...
