If you want to return as a visitor to the US after Aug 15th and for just a month, there's two things you can do: 1- File an I-539 form to change to a B1/B2 status* 2- Go across the border to Canada and re-enter the US under the VWP which you're entitled to as a UK citizen * Note that you're still out of status even if you have timely applied for a change....

I've just sent my soon to expire UK passport via Australia post to the UK PA in Liverpool, UK. The requirements are unclear- stating no photocopies- but colour copies of every page of the non-UK passport are acceptable. I photographed every page and then collated all 37+ pages onto 4 pages before pdf and printing. Fingers crossed that is acceptable, I'll ...

It used to be that you were required to physically send them the other passport(s) as well; I believe the full colour copy requirement is intended to be less onerous than having to send them the passport which you may have been hoping to use for travel while waiting for the UK one to get back to you. It does appear to be a requirement in the latest official ...

In other words, it's a "cloaking device" to prevent interference with delivery tracking systems (which ...

Bulgaria technically does require a travel document, even Bulgarian ones, to be unexpired. In practice, of course, it's extremely unlikely that they'd actually deny you entry: however, getting on a plane is unlikely to be possible, as airlines have Information about the requirements. My Suggestion is: use your British passport at check-in. Then, at ...

A foreigner may enter the Republic of Bulgaria if he/ she is a holder of a regular foreign travel document or another equivalent document as well as a visa if required. Source I would argue that you are a foreigner (though this is contentious), as a British Citizen, and that as you hold a valid travel document - a British Passport, you should be fine ...

In the end I booked a cheap hotel for a night and never set foot in it. I could have checked in and out five minutes later, as suggested above, but the cheap hotels were all a long way from where I planned to spend the day, so this wasn't an appealing prospect. I figured that even if this was technically illegal and could potentially invalidate my visa, as ...

It's been a while since I visited Cyprus. But I doubt things have gotten worse; There are only a few border crossings, but crossing the border is quite painless, though the setting might resemble crossing from East to West Berlin before German unification. Public transport, on both sides, was limited when I was there. It should be possible to take a rental ...

For Pakistan, British passports simply need to be valid for the period of intended stay. For those needing a visa the embassies (as opposed to Pakistani immigration) have stricter requirements, but for you only the rules of Pakistani immigration apply. And they only require it to be valid for the perod of stay.
