For the purposes of bringing this question to an answered state... Summary The OP joined a bespoke chat room and engaged with Flimzy (to whom thanks) for about an hour. The OP left the chat satisfied and Flimzy was invited to provide an answer here. The OP's friend will face a perilous landing interview: he is unemployed and without a permanent residence ...

In general, you cannot apply for a Chinese visa from a country of which you are not a citizen or permanent resident. Specifically for Turkey (my emphasis): (3) Proof of legal stay or residence status(applicable to those not applying for the visa in their country of citizenship) If you are not applying for the visa in the country of your ...

As @user102008 explained, what you plan on doing is perfectly fine. But note that you can use whichever passport you feel like when checking in (or even show the airline several passports if needed). This has no consequences and you can always show your EU passport later, at the official passport check at your destination airport. The US is a little more ...

My main confusion is that I've read that you should always exit and enter a country with the same passport (which I am obviously not doing) You are doing it. The thing you are forgetting is that exiting country A and entering country B are two separate things (and the airline check-in is a third separate thing). When you exit country A, you should ...

I went to North Korea last September. You'll be perfectly safe travelling there as a Korean American. For all the failings of the North Korean government, they're not in the habit of arbitrarily detaining foreign tourists. Almost all the foreign tourists detained by the North Korean government in recent years have been detained for trying to bring bibles ...

I backpacked from Cape Town to Cairo in 2013, and found this a challenge for myself as well. It ended up not being a big deal. Even though they technically require a return ticket, it was only the flight attendant who asked me about it. Since I was coming in on a one way ticket with plans to backpack, I bought a Greyhound bus ticket online from South ...

You are right. The ESTA is needed only for citizens of certain non-US countries who want to visit the US under the Visa Waiver Program. The US doesn't require authorization, permission or registration for anyone trying to leave the country. And as a US citizen, you also don't need permission to come back, just your passport. (When you fly back to the ...

No Visa is required. You'll get an entry stamp that authorizes stay for six months but if all you're doing is a day-trip that's not an issue. When you return you'll get another entry stamp for the EU, however, unless you have a visa or something for the EU the most you can stay there is 90 days per About Schengen 90/180 rule

Mark Mayo's answer is the best answer to this question; it is an appeal to common sense. I simply wanted to add some legal context for the UK. There are intersecting regulations for the EEA as a whole which are roughly similar. The 'generic' answer is that gun permits are generally issued by individual states, like Kentucky or Arizona. Individual states ...

Being a US citizen certainly does not exempt one from local laws, even visiting countries close to home. The OP didn't ask about Mexico, but it serves as a good case in point. From wikipedia: "The US Department of State warns US citizens [and all persons regardless of citizenship] against taking any firearm or ammunition into Mexico without prior written ...

Travelling with a firearm (in general) I've actually seen this scenario, where there has been an assumption by the (US) traveller that they would just be able to enter another country with their firearm. However, as @Mark Mayo states, each country has their own laws in this regard. It's important to realise other countries are likely to have much stricter ...

Every country has their own laws governing handguns. Your license is for the US, under US (or state-specific) laws. Firstly, you'd have trouble at the border, as you generally need permission or a license to carry a gun onboard a plane, boat, train, or bus, or across borders. Secondly, you would need a license under the laws of the country you're visiting ...

So there are four possible 'issues' points: leaving Italy. As you've said, you're allowed to leave and enter Italy while renewal is proceeding. So that's fine. And they might ask for a flight out of the UK, to prove you intend on leaving the UK. entering the UK. As long as you have evidence that you're leaving again, that should be fine. leaving the UK. ...

As far as I see it, it won't hurt any Japanese citizen's feelings if you visit the Hiroshima & Nagasaki memorials. It rather depicts some sign of empathy towards the victims (unless you end up doing some random foolish act at a place of such deep meaning for the natives). First off, you as an individual, are not accountable for a decision made by your ...

Generally, airlines worry most about you holding a VISA for the destination country. I have left the US many times forgetting to return my I-94, but I obviously had an entry record for that passport. However, it is illegal for US citizens to enter or leave the US on another than a US passport. Since you are a US citizen, you can not obtain a US visa (for ...

Hopefully you can get the mistaken identity fixed before your trip. Here's what you should do if it isn't fixed. Tell your bus driver that you may take extra time to process. Sit near the front of the bus. The driver will make sure you're one of the first people in line, so you'll minimize the delay on the schedule. Don't stress too much about being left ...

Actually there is a simple thing you can do - get yourself a NEXUS card. As it says, it "allows pre-screened travelers expedited processing when entering the United States and Canada". While part of the expediting means you can use dedicated lanes at borders, a NEXUS card also shows border guards that you have already been cleared, and is evidence that you ...

You can't get a Mexican passport unless you are Mexican citizen. Generally speaking, for travel you need a government issued identification document with your photo - a passport any passport qualifies for this. Depending on the flight, you may also provide other forms of identification in lieu of the passport (for example, a driver's license is accepted on ...

This is addressed in Paragraph 20A of the rules, which says... Leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom will usually lapse on the holder going to a country or territory outside the common travel area.
