At Beijing Airport you will easily find your way around. All signs are bilingual (Chinese/English). You cannot really mis where you need to go. I cannot vouch for the staff, however. Forget visiting the city. If you have a 6-hours layover, you want to be back at the airport 2 hours before. Getting to the city center (i.e. Tiananmen Square) will take you at ...

This has been a comment, but was suggested to become upgraded to an answer (I also took the freedom to rewrite it slightly)… Back when I got through Frankfurt quite a bit, the minimal connection time was 45 minutes (from LH to LH flights). But that was before Schengen, and I stayed in the "international" section. As Ireland is not part of Schengen, this has ...

A One hour transfer should be enough at Frankfurt airport. Especially if your luggage is booked through, but even then it should be ok. There are some hints and tips on the airport website. http://www.frankfurt-airport.com/content/frankfurt_airport/en/transfer/faqs-tips.html The printed guide (on page 7) ...

To transit US you will need a Visa see a question that covers that topic: Do I need a US visa to change planes in an American airport? If you're looking for alternatives you may be hard pressed to find them but you could try changing your itinerary to: Dubai -> Moscow -> Havana -> Grand Cayman This avoids the US and to the best of the information I ...

Trying to be as objective as possible - your case will be extremely difficult to prove that the error was on the airline side. In a way, the airline can show that they did the utmost in order to inform you on the gate change Using the PA multiple times and NOT assigning a gate number at least 30 minutes before departure. (Was not on the screen) You can ...

If you do need a DATV, you need to apply in advance. The whole point of the thing is preventing some people to reach UK territory by making sure they are not able to board their flight without proper documentation. If you don't have a visa, what is most likely to happen is being denied boarding by the airline in Mexico. You wouldn't even reach Heathrow.

That would be international - AMS and CDG are in the Schengen zone, Ireland isn't.

The point is enforcing their price discrimination practices. What airlines do is trying to extract as much profit as possible from each passenger. Ideally they want to sell the ticket at the highest price a person is ready to pay for it and the distance, costs, etc. aren't directly relevant (see also Why do hotel booking sites ask for the number of people? ...

A transit visa is not necessary, since you are not among the unlucky few listed here, which for the record are Afghanistan Bangladesh Congo (Democratic Republic) Eritrea Ethiopia Ghana Iran Iraq Nigeria Pakistan Somalia Sri Lanka Angola Guinea Guinea Bissau Nepal Sudan Syria South Sudan Sierra Leone

There is no such thing as transiting, as it is known in other localities and related to VISA's, within the US. You must go through US Customs and Border Protection, or its representatives, any time you deplane in the US. So, if you stick with your flight plan, to include the layovers in NYC/Miami, yes, you would need a VISA. (India is not currently in the ...

"Same-day transit between Heathrow and Gatwick" should do nicely then.

It would definitely be arriving into Ireland as an "international" arrival. Same as departing from Ireland to either to AMS or CDG. As such you would need a valid passport for this flight. The only flights to and from Ireland that are classed as domestic are from within Ireland or the UK and you can travel on a EU issued driving licence or national identity ...

Since AMS (Amsterdam Schiphol) is in the Netherlands and CDG (Paris Charles De Gaulle) is in France, both in the Schengen area, any flight to Ireland, which is not in the Schengen area, will definitely be considered as an international flight. Domestic flights are usually defined as flights within the same country, but flights between two Schengen countries ...

You don't need a visa for airside transit in Paris thanks to your US visa. Assuming you are an Indian citizen, you would otherwise need an airport transit visa (ATV). If you would need an ATV, you could use a single visa provided it's valid on both dates. See Do I need a visa to transit in the Schengen area? for more details.

You need transit visa only if you want to go out from the airport to the city. If you stay in airport, you will be in a transit zone without passing the boarder. In this case you no need to have transit visa. However, for 14 hours you may see a lot of interesting things in a city. More information about visas you may find there: ...

Turns out, @Karlson is right! It has to be less than 6 months. Exactly 6 months or more is not an option and does not work out. Quoting @Karlson: More then likely this is not going to work. When you enter the country let's say on August 11th, 6 months will end on February 10th and given the direction of travel and flights which usually happen ...

Well if you want to be on the safe side, you can always book a cheap hostel even if you don't plan to stay in it. With 12% booking fee and a booking protection it would effectively cost you 1-3 euros which you can cancel and even redeem on a later booking. Compared to 15 Euros (depending from where you are) visa it is hardly a big extra cost. I believe a ...
