According to the rules (here, in French), you have to be resident in the country where you apply. The key paragraph is the first: Les étrangers désireux de se rendre en Algérie doivent présenter à leur arrivée un passeport en cours de validité muni d’un visa d’entrée sur le territoire Algérien délivré par l’Ambassade ou le Consulat algérien du lieu ...

The UK border is very tough. I can't give you a yes/no answer, but since you have already overstayed one visa, it would be perfectly reasonable of them to assume you are going to overstay a second one. If they think this they won't let you in. You'll be officially declined entry, it will be entered in your passport, and then good luck travelling anywhere ...

Your relative's visa must be a Type D visa issued by Spain -- it can't be a type C short-stay visa, because such visas are not issueed to U.S. citizens at all. Holding a Type D visa has the convenient side effect that days he spends in Spain under that visa do not count towards his 90-in-any-180-days Schengen clock; for all intents and purposes the Schengen ...

Unlike some other Brazilian consulates in the US, the Los Angeles consulate will not mail your passport back to you after processing. The Consulate cannot be held responsible for mailed passports or visa applications and will not mail applications or visas back. Your options are to either pick it up yourself, or to have someone pick it up on your ...

There is a strong assumption in the various programs that school-age children go to a guest family and university-age adults live in a student dorm or whatever. Student exchange DAAD You might look into young-adult volunteer programs which are mostly filled with Germans, count endangered birds at the coast or something like that. Some of those are open to ...

According to the website of the Brazilian Consulate-General in Washington: There is no need for a visa if the traveler arrives in Brazil on a flight, remains in the international transit area, without passing through immigration control, and departs on another flight from the same airport. Note, however, that this may be a problem if you have baggage ...

As a complement to the other answers, I can offer my personal experience that I made it in and out of the country (and the conference) without any trouble, using a visa-on-arrival letter. Of course, this is not authoritative information, just anecdotal.

As of April 2016, it looks like on-arrival visas are still available, but only for certain countries (US citizens can still get one, along with 35 other countries). From the Turkish e-Visa webpage: https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/info/i-do-not-want-to-apply-for-an-e-visa-can-i-get-a-visa-on-arrival/ Q: I do not want to apply for an e-Visa. Can I get a visa ...

A French, national long term visa only allows you to visit other Schengen countries for 90 days within a 180 days period. As US citizens, this does not give you any obvious advantage over the allowed visa free stay. As you already seem to assume: the French visa will only allow you to stay longer than 90 days in France and the period you are staying in ...

I ended up getting a typhoid shot at the Zagreb city-run Andrija Stampar Teaching Institute of Public Health (Croatian: Zavod za javno zdravstvo "Dr. Andrija Štampar"). The address is Mirogojska 16, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia. Look for the signs for "epidemiologija", just to the left inside the main entrance. The medical staff spoke good English, the cost was ...

Since this came up it might be worth noting that the actual administrative law being violated is 22 CFR 53.1, and 22 CFR 53.2 has the exceptions which can be trolled for loopholes. It appears to me that one might be able to legally get away without a valid US passport by flying via Canada with a valid NEXUS card (though I'm not positive; "NEXUS Air kiosks" ...

Just a note from recent experience - you can actually get an ESTA for your non-US passport - and I checked with a US border person before doing so (I'd v stupidly left my US passport at home), when going through pre-clearance in Ottawa, Canada, in transit to Brazil - but that doesn't mean you should. I input details of all passports, incl the US one, and the ...
