Recreation.gov lists camping and RV sites at U.S. national parks, forests and other federal land. The nightly fee shown is per site, and you're allowed up to the maximum number of people shown for that site. (I've stayed at quite a few of these campgrounds.) When you actually go to book your campsite, the web site will tell you the maximum number of people ...

Reservations are semi-autonomous lands. They have their own rules, law enforcement officiers and judicial systems. But that said, their laws are not really that different than the state they reside in. They are often more strict on enforcement, so obey the speed limits and other driving rules, don't count on the 10 miles over the limit grace a state ...

Yes, both of these are potential issues. (First, you are entering by land, so the ESTA is a non-issue. ESTA is for air/sea entry only.) I will presume that you will be entering without a visa, under the visa waiver programme. In this case, the I-94W form requires an address in the USA. I do not believe that "UNKNOWN" is accepted, but I may be wrong. If ...

To be valid for travel under the visa waiver program, a British passport must: Have a machine-readable zone on the biographic page. If issued on or after October 26, 2005, have a digital photo. If issued on or after October 26, 2006, be an electronic passport with a digital chip containing biometric information about the passport owner. Entitle the holder ...

CBP is a federal agency as Ne An Derthal mentioned. As such they follow the same federally mandated guidelines at ALL postings, even the pre-clearance postings. The only real differences are 1: the mood and mindset of the particular CBP agent you deal with, 2: the destination you are flying from. The first is pretty hit and miss, as like ourselves CBP ...

US customs (technically either CBP or ICE) do have the authority to inspect your external hard drive and other electronic devices and there are a few criminal cases based on such searches. But they obviously cannot systematically inspect all devices or HD people carry through the border and would not be primarily looking for illegally downloaded music (if ...

CBP provide the following advice for visa waiver nationals who enter on electronic I-94 forms and exit by land. Also, some land border departures may not be recorded in CBP systems. Land border departures on the Southern Border are not always documented. A departure will be recorded if you depart via land and re-enter the United States prior to the ...

Obviously you will need money to pay for things, but no one will check that you have some minimum amount of money before admitting you to the city. There are no internal "border" controls within the continental United States.

In principle you shouldn't have to pass through immigration, and therefore the only thing that comes up is if you have valid ID to get on the flight in the first place.

Your title and your question don't match. So I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'll answer both questions. Do I need to check out and check in my baggage again in transit airport? Yes. You must gather your checked bag and pass through US customs at the airport where you enter the country. Then you must re-check your bag (even if on the same airline), ...

I don't see why the Indian authorities would care about your status in the US, but if they do, explain this (which also explains why you wouldn't have a problem in the US airport): In the US, a visa is only required as an entry document. Continued stay in the country is not conditioned on the possession of a valid visa. One official source for this is ...

Presuming you are a non-Indian (not a member of that reservation, nor a different tribe) they only have limited jurisdiction over you. Most Indian reservation police have cross-agreements with the state cops to allow outside cops (such as pulling over a car on the interstate traveling through reservation lands) to operate normally, or to hold you till the ...

When and where would you make customs declarations when departing the U.S. by a scheduled passenger flight? You have to go to a customs office yourself, presumably before going through security (which could be taken as evidence that you did not intend to declare your gold bar). In most airports I have been to (admittedly most of them out of the US), ...

I bought the Microwave and we use it on long trips. It was a little tricky getting the connection to the battery, but once that was done, it works very well. It also can be used in motels when you stop. I went back to find a link for you guys, but the AC/DC model is now marked as discontinued. They still sell the DC only model. Here is the link. ...

Normally if you have a transit time this short you can ask the airline personnel to assist in expediting the matters. However, CBP had created a page with a report of the immigration wait times at various airports so you can get an idea of how long it might take you to pass through the immigration. The max waiting time indicated for immigration was over 2 ...

I would call ahead before bringing Euro notes into a random branch on a non-major USA bank. I see Bank of America accepts foreign currency at full-service branches. A small local bank, only at the two largest offices. The USA is an exception to the general rule that you do best to get Country X's currency while in Country X. The rates are bad, and the fees ...

You cannot re-enter the US without a valid visa (there is an exception for Mexico and Canada). You can however use the I-20 to get a new visa issued from the consulate. It is better to do it from your home country, but you can consider trying from Estonia as well if you can give them an acceptable reason for why you are doing so. You should consult your ...

Neither. The CBP guidance notes say: Print your current street address in the United States. If you are staying at a hotel, include the hotel's name and street address. Print the city and the state in the appropriate boxes. Where your friend expects to be 10 days later is not current and that in your friend's case the port of entry happens to be in ...

Indeed it is not specified but in North America, prices are usually per campsite. Sometimes there are extra fees for extra people (typically over 2), extra vehicles (over 1), or extra tents. I could not find anything anywhere on the site stating the price is per campsite, but that page mentions the limit of 2 vehicles per campsite, this one the limit of 8 ...

The UK government provides all the information you ask for (and more) on gov.uk. To surmarize what you need to do, from that site: If you are entering the UK from the EU or a listed non-EU country your pet must: be identified with a microchip have received a rabies vaccination followed by a 21 day wait be accompanied by the relevant ...

Here is a info for everyone still wondering about that: I just was able to buy a print-at-home ticket from Austria also by entering 999-999-9999 as my phone number.

I had a cousin who was born and raised in Chicago and is currently having her holiday here in the Philippines. I got the chance to have a conversation with her just now; and asked her about this posted question in the forum related to where she is residing. I was told that there are three famous dishes in the city. These are the Chicago-style pizza, ...

Not at all. Flying within the US has no border control (makes sense, as you are just flying within the same country). All you need is a TSA approved identification document. Immediately after 9/11 I was flying from San Diego to Dallas, and I was carrying only my Texas driver's license (and no passport). I was approached by FBI, airport police and INS ...

No. The Tampa - Chicago flight is an arriving domestic flight in Chicago, so obviously there are no formalities. The Chicago - Chennai flight is a departing international flight in Chicago, which you also don't go through immigration formalities for, because the US doesn't have any exit immigration formalities. In fact, many times departing international ...

According to one of the sources for that article, it was closed in 1835. Later it was razed, and a library now stands on the site.

Not exactly what you asked, but I think you generally get an "easier" treatment using the preclearance facilities in Ireland at Dublin or especially Shannon. I don't think you'd slip anything past them (no more than anywhere else) but the process seems smoother and friendlier. Using BA Flight 1 which stops at Shannon for preclearance is my preferred way to ...

Lots of campgrounds, especially government run campgrounds and doubly especially low or no cost campgrounds, have limits on how many days you can stay there ...including all state campgrounds in Hawaii. The purpose is to control squatters, not specifically homeless, but folks who prefer to not pay rent or rv parking fees and take advantage of free camping. ...

The requirement on the passport for VWP is: What are the passport requirements for travel under the Visa Waiver Program? Visa Waiver Program requirements are: The passport must have a machine-readable zone on the biographic page. Issued on or after October 26, 2005 – Each Visa Waiver Program passport issued on or after this date must ...

Best bet is to close out the German account and then deposit the Euros in your USA account. Most major US banks will accept deposits in Euros. You can exchange them at the Dallas airport, but airport rates are usually pretty poor in the USA. You could buy dollars in Europe, but again buying is never the best rate. You could use the ATM card, but that ...

The advantage of using online brokers and comparison sites is that they allow you to compare multiple plans at once, even though you will get the same price whether you end up buying through them or buying directly from the company. Legally, there are no discounts on travel insurance in the US. Online brokers like the one you mention are very reliable and ...
