TL;DR: Probably not, but I still wouldn't risk it A speeding ticket is a traffic infraction and not a criminal offence; however, failing to show up for your court date is a misdemeanor and you have likely been issued with a bench warrant. These are state-level warrants and most states do not extradite for misdemeanors, since that would require California ...

Step 1: Talk to a real life lawyer. They will need more exact information than you provide here, so see other steps noted below for how to get that info so you don't waste your/their time.

No, you don't have to do so. The official line, from the CBP FAQ page on the VWP and ESTA: Q: Can prospective travelers apply for an ESTA without specific travel plans if they want to be able to travel to the United States later on short notice?

No. You need to first get through check in. For example, Budapest airport is annoyingly slow while Vancouver is surprisingly fast. Then there is security. The waiting time for this varies from day to day and hour to hour and often terminal to terminal. Some airports require you to Remember, you will still need to pass through security at least 60 minutes ...

You would not be arrested by the U. S. Customs and Border Protection inspectors... No Federal statute authorizes an arrest by a Federal law enforcement officer based on an outstanding state warrant. Federal officers making such an arrest are arresting either as a peace officer or a citizen depending on the law of the state in which the arrest is ...

As other posters have said, failure to show up for your traffic infraction is a misdemeanor which will not prevent your entry into the United States. That said, there most likely is a bench warrant issued for your appearance in court in California and they will arrest you in California. This will not cause you problems getting a license in Florida unless ...

You can't be denied a passport simply because you're forgetful, but you might be denied expedited processing. Somewhere, an officer is wondering what happened to all those passports you lost, and whether they might have been stolen or misused. The reasons why one might be denied a US passport include: Failing to fill out the application completely Failing ...

In my personal experience no. I've been to the US three times staying in different locations without altering the address. Although full disclosure, I'm not sure if that's ok, it is my personal experience.

In general, if you're in a place that also sells drinks and you're using vouchers, etc then tip as you would if you'd paid. So a dollar or two per drink depending on price and place. Same goes for discounts and other freebies like a 2 for 1 deal -- although you could choose to tip more up front. Obviously if the staff just decide to give you a freebie then ...

When you preclear US customs at Halifax Stanfield you will not need to go through customs again when reaching the United States. You arrive at a domestic terminal in the US rather than an international terminal and can proceed directly to your next flight. All you need to do is to make sure the airline checks your bags through to TPA, which they will do if ...

When you arrive at a port of entry in the U.S., the Customs and Border Protection officer decides how long your visit is allowed to be, and this information will be stamped into your passport as part of your entry stamp. Most of the time, this is 90 days, but it is possible that, depending on your individual circumstances, you will be allowed less than 90 ...

Although United and American probably do have an interline baggage agreement (most of the larger IATA members do), and are probably capable legally and operationally of transferring bags directly, it is up to the discretion of each airline whether or not to do so. And most US carriers have been increasingly reluctant to do so over the last few years as they ...

Both UPS and FedEX have a "hold at depot" option. You put your name on the package but their address plus "c/o UPS hold at depot". The downside is the depots are usually in industrial parks near the airport with a complete lack of public transportation. You will need a car to go get it. The delivery/pickup window is also limited - after 3-4 days they will ...

When I needed something mailed in the US while travelling, I organised ahead with a hostel in Los Angeles. We were going to stay there anyway, and you might find they want you to book a night if you're going to collect mail from them, but give a hostel a call and see if they'll accept mail on your behalf - I've done it in several countries now with no ...

Territorial limitations are listed in the visible region of the Schengen visa (as opposed to the machine readable region). For your specific question: "is this meaning that i cannot go to estonia (not that i plan) or that i can go?!", the answer is NO. A restriction against Estonia (issued by a Spanish consulate) would look like... ESTADOS SCHENGEN (-EE) ...

It doesn't matter where you're from. If you've a 10 year tourist/visit visa for US, its probably multiple entry visa & you can visit US anytime you want.

If you go to Canada and Mexico or the Caribbean, and while you are there, your initial 90-day period of entry expires, but you need to come back in to the U.S. to fly home, you may encounter a problem. The terms of the VWP are very clear - it is only to be used for occasional, short visits to the U.S. If the CBP Officer thinks you are trying to "reset" the ...

While Jonas' answer is indeed the legal situation but note: there is no penalty for breaking this particular law and more importantly, no US citizen can be denied entry to the USA if said person can prove citizenship. This is more generic than the USA, this is one of the fundamental meanings of citizenship. A birth certificate is a good start, the more IDs ...

While you do not need an ESTA, you can get one. Last time I crossed a Canada/US border, by car (no need of ESTA either), the border agent asked me if I had an ESTA. When I said I thought I did not need one, he told me the process would be faster. But most importantly, there is a priori no reason you will take much more time than most other travellers. As ...

No. The 90 days do not pause in Canada, Mexico, or nearby islands. Source (Ctrl+F, "Trips to Canada, Mexico, or nearby Islands."

Your visa can be used throughout its validity period, unless cancelled or revoked. Hence you will be able to enter the USA on your current B-1/B-2 visa since it is hasn't expired yet. Moreover, the visa remains valid until it expires (ha, nice tautology). This is true regardless if it is contained in an invalid/expired passport. All you need to do is make ...

I think that it is mostly due to the fewer people, as there are multiple visitor centers throughout the park, some open every day. However, in the winter season, it rains a lot in the forest so this is less comfortable. As it is still open on weekends, it is not impracticable, just less popular. If you visit in the lower season, be careful as some roads may ...

The refusal under section 214 is because you didn't prove to the satisfaction of the consular officer your definitive intent to return to the country of your origin. From the limited information you have provided you seem to have no kids, who stay back, you don't have a job and your husband is self employed, which basically means that since he's traveling ...

The answer is no. You can not return for 10 years if you over stayed for more than 12 months. You will need to apply for a new visa, have interviews to explain the situation. I went through a similar situation Got duped in to believing the man I was involved with would do the right thing, only to find out he was still married, I got sick and got stuck in the ...
