No, you cannot. Unlike most other countries, the US does not allow transit passengers to change between flights without passing through immigration. So everyone arriving at a US airport has to have permission to enter the country. (There may possibly be exceptions for "tech stops", where the plane lands to refuel but the passengers stay on board. But ...

It's fine. The minimum connecting time for Emirates-Emirates flights is 75 minutes — sorry, can't find an authoritative source for this, but if you booked your flights through Emirates, they'll only offer legal connections anyway.

jpatokal answer is correct. But I'll add that you will need to go through a security screening in Dubai (not immigration) and your luggage should be checked through. In my experience it is certainly feasible to get from gate to gate in about 45 minutes. I also noticed staff standing outside the security screening trying to flag down passengers for flights ...

I assume that your visit will be done via a round trip from the Schengen zone. You need to apply as a General Visitor using The official UK website for online visa ...

Most Canadian airports have a US border post in them, including Pearson. For direct flights from these airports to the US (Detroit) you'll pass through the US border pre-clearance after check-in and before getting to the departure gate in Toronto.

He contacted Lufthansa and complained about the situation, he got full compensation for the train tickets as well as a generous voucher that he can use the next time he's booking a Lufthansa ticket. Long story short, contacting Lufthansa ...

Your best option for recovering this expense is probably your travel insurance. It likely covers extra expenses incurred due to late or delayed transportation (particularly if you had pre-arranged transportation that you missed).

The simple answer is that you will require a visa, or you'll need to change your flights. In general, Indian citizens do need a visa for all trips to/through Germany, even if you are only in transit. However there is an exception to this rule for people that hold a valid US visa which means that you do not require a visa if you are in transit, and if you ...

Yes, you can transit in Amsterdam. Transiting in other Schengen countries is almost always possible with any visa or residence permit from a Schengen country (the only exceptions I am aware of are things like “limited territorial validity” visas and some documents given to asylum seekers). You will in fact enter the Schengen area in Amsterdam and have your ...

You applied for a UK transit visa and while it is in processing, your travel dates have changed. You didn't say whether you are applying through a VFS (Visa Facilitation Service) or their internet site, and you didn't say which British consulate you applied to.

I'm a US citizen and I just had a layover in Shanghai this past December. Actually had to switch planes and carriers. Neither carrier cared about any of it--I was totally on my own. The airport immigration staff just asked to see my printout of my ticket and passport--that was it.
