To transit US you will need a Visa see a question that covers that topic: Do I need a US visa to change planes in an American airport? If you're looking for alternatives you may be hard pressed to find them but you could try changing your itinerary to: Dubai -> Moscow -> Havana -> Grand Cayman This avoids the US and to the best of the information I ...

There is no such thing as transiting, as it is known in other localities and related to VISA's, within the US. You must go through US Customs and Border Protection, or its representatives, any time you deplane in the US. So, if you stick with your flight plan, to include the layovers in NYC/Miami, yes, you would need a VISA. (India is not currently in the ...

According to the web site of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, either a SSN or an alien identification card is required: Social Security Number: The disclosure of your social security number or alien identification number is required to obtain SC hunting and fishing licenses.

No, it's not possible to extend the stay. Q: What if I enter on the Visa Waiver Program and then decide I want to stay longer than the 90 days? A: You cannot extend the time on the Visa Waiver Program. The 90 days also includes any time spent in Canada, Mexico and adjacent Islands. Therefore you cannot cross the border into these areas and ...

There is the concept in the US of "Non-Owner" car insurance for people just like you. You can read about the concept here. Progressive offers coverage specifically for car rentals. Presumably most large insurance companies do, too, so you can call around and pick a price point you like.

Given the US Embassy in Madrid FAQ and the previous experience my wife had past December coming back from Barcelona it is a no. The flights from Spain and especially from Barcelona are almost universally go through agriculture control at US customs (at least the case in JFK and Newark) specifically looking for Jamon. The only possible exception might be ...

The short answer to your question is “No, there is no time limit to staying in the US in any one year when entering with an ESTA” but there are a few caveats. Formally, he would not be staying on the ESTA but under the visa waiver program (VWP). You can therefore find more info about the rules on the official VWP website. In any case, it's not possible to ...

Then you have a problem. According to TSA: Q. Can I fly with an expired ID? A. If you lose your primary ID or it has expired, TSA may accept other forms of ID to help verify your identity. So if you have to obtain a driver's license to replace your expired one which for Washington DC, Virginia, or Maryland you will be required to provide proof ...

According to this page, if you are using Greyhound and you are buying a ticket online, you will need photo identification. Therefore, I believe that your birth certificate will not be enough. Here is the relevant excerpt (emphasis is mine): Each passenger must present a ticket and a valid photo ID to board the bus.

For view - an hour and a half. It's worth doing at least once. Brunch is an excellent way to do SkyCity restaurant + rotating view -- it's a little more affordable than dinner. You will want to make reservations (even at brunch).

In most cases, you can use a debit card, even for small payments. Carrying about $20 with you would help in instances where debit cards are not accepted. You can easily transfer monies to your USA bank account via wire transfer. Make sure that your bank abroad allows you to wire transfer without being physically present. Waiters will be very surprised if ...

This has been answered before, but the answer is Yes, the requirements for transit are the same as for entering the U.S. So you would need a visa unless you are the national of a Visa Waiver country.

According to the US Department of State, Bureau of Counsular Affairs, Trips to Canada, Mexico, or nearby Islands If you are admitted to the United States under the VWP, you may take a short trip to Canada, Mexico, or a nearby island and generally be readmitted to the United States under the VWP for the remainder of the original 90 days granted upon ...

Maybe. It depends. First you have to get it out of the USA - and there are laws about that. 22 CFR 123.17(c) is the key part of "22 CFR 123.17 - Exports of firearms, ammunition, and personal protective gear.". 17c states that: (c) Port Directors of U.S. Customs and Border Protection shall permit U.S. persons to export temporarily from the United ...

What makes you think that because you have a permit to own a gun in the US means you can carry that gun in other countries? You can't, you'd need a permit from that other country. And if you're transiting 3rd countries, you may need a permit from all those countries as well (depending on the local law there, and how you're transiting). Karlson already ...

As you said, sporting events are usually your best bet for a guaranteed National Anthem. While they (usually) aren't free, if you're not picky about your sport, there's probably more than a few that you can get for relatively cheap. Soccer (football) is in mid-season right now so tickets probably aren't that expensive and I know that there're at least two ...

I am not a lawyer. That being said, if your friend is a legal driver in India, and has an Indian driver's license, is over 18, and was driving the type of vehicle she is licensed to drive, then India is listed in Appendix C. She should have been a legal driver in Massachusetts. If there was no other infraction noted on the ticket, other than not having a ...

A traffic ticket lawyer is probably the best bet. They can be in court for you if they have to be. The fees are often not actually too much but it may still be more expensive than just paying the fine. http://www.avvo.com/speeding-traffic-ticket-lawyer/ma.html You may also request a court date, once assigned write a letter to the prosecuting attorney and ...

Since Australia participates in the Visa Waiver Program, you should be able to enter the USA as a tourist from Canada. To be on the safe side, you may want to stay in Canada for a week or so. I would make sure to only enter the USA after the E-3 visa has expired. You may not want to be confronted by an immigration officer wondering why you are entering the ...

even if you're allowed to take them out of the US (don't see why not unless they're listed as endangered in which case even having them as pets might be illegal) you may want to check whether you're allowed to import them to Sweden... Some countries have severe restrictions on importing life animals. If that's all settled (and all the paperwork properly ...

There are no direct flights from the US to Cuba. However there are direct flights from neighbouring countries. There are frequent flights from major Canadian airports, and from Mexico City and Cancun in Mexico (and probably other Mexican airports), as well as Jamaica and many Central American and Caribbean locations (not, obviously, US territories like ...

In a word, money. And to some extent, people. Everything costs. Some airports have had scares in the past and will allocate more money to TSA procedures. Some changes, like the Global Entry Pass, have improved some things and will cost additional money. Let's say the TSA has decided some new fancy scanner is the latest and greatest bomb detector. Can ...

Yes, you can, and I have, as evidence. I flew a very similar route, from Austin to Phoenix, and then on to San Fran. I've also done other internal flights. All on the Visa-Waiver Program. The visa-waiver is a check done at the international border, as you enter the US from another country. Once you're within the strict US border, you're permitted to ...

To my knowledge, all USA visas let you travel within the country without restrictions. The purpose of visa is to control entry at the border. This also applies to the visa waiver program. You can find additional information about the visa waiver program in this brochure.

There are 67,000 people in the TSA, and an increasing number of airports that opt for privatized security companies to do the job instead, so some variance will be inevitable. In your particular case, it sounds like either you've been going through the TSA Precheck line at OAK, or they're confused/lazy/running a quiet trial and applying the Precheck rules ...

What's restricted in the US is most forms of trade with Cuba. Travel is therefore de facto forbidden for US citizens and permanent residents as they are not allowed to spend any money in Cuba. However, traveling to Cuba is not forbidden as such and there is a licensing system and even a number of charter flights and US-based organized tours of Cuba. In any ...

Unexpired Visa You won't be allowed entry to the USA if you point of entry date is after the expiry of the visa (expired visa). If you enter before your visa expires they will give you an I-94 (electronic) and a stamp on your passport telling you when you should leave by. See Visa Expiration Dates. The visa is only for entering the USA, the I-94 is how long ...

According to CALTRANS the maximum stay in a 24 hour period at a CALTANS rest area is 8 hours. I live in the North West corner of the state; while there are roads that I won't drive for fear of getting shot by growers in Southern Humboldt most of the rest areas are pretty safe.

I would guess that if you are not aware of the distinction, you are a British citizen. Which class of British nationality you hold would be indicated on your passport. For example, here is a British Citizen passport: A British Subject passport: And a British National (Overseas) passport: Beside other differences, note that “British Citizen”, ...

You've stated that your main interest is status. Good news here, all Hilton stays booked through Hilton (Hilton website, Hilton HHonors call centre, hotel themselves etc) qualify for nights and stay credit. Doesn't matter if it's a money (cash) booking, reward (points) booking, or points+cash booking, all will count towards status by nights or stays. It's ...

Canada would require proof of U.S. citizenship, which a birth certificate may or may not suffice. But U.S. law requires that U.S. citizens enter and exit the U.S. with a U.S. passport except as provided by the President. And what the President provides is what the CBP requires, documented here. Basically, a passport, passport card, Enhanced driver's ...

If you want to make a quick trip I would recommend getting a Passport card and a NEXUS card / Global Entry card. Quoting the wikipedia article on NEXUS: NEXUS cardholders are generally screened more quickly at the border, however they are still subject to standard immigration and customs checks, and may be selected for secondary screening. ...

You can always (or almost always) extend a car rental. Generally this is done by just calling the rental agency 24 hours before the scheduled drop-off time to request additional time. Naturally, it happens automatically, as well, if you don't return the vehicle as scheduled, although it would very possibly incur penalties to do so. And if you wait too long ...

I would suggest that you contact the US embassy or consulate closest to you because the nuance of the reason to travel might make you require a Foreign Press credentials. If you look at the State Department's Visa Waiver Page it states: Travel Purposes Not Permitted on Visa Waiver Program – Examples: These are some examples of activities not ...

The device may or may not work, but in any case it is not a good idea to try to use it. As greyshade already mentioned, the print on the device states that it operates with 230 Volts at 50Hz, and the US power net does not provide that. Even a transformer would formally not help as the US power system operates on 60Hz, and a transformer will not change that. ...

The fourth line of text on the device (counting those two lines on the top right) says: EINGANG 230V~50Hz 4W where 'Eingang' is German for 'input', '230V~50Hz' means '230Volts AC at 50Hz' and 4W is the maximum power. Since the US mains have a voltage of 120V and a frequency of 60Hz, you will need a transformer, but then the device will work.

I would talk to your credit card company. That is probably your best bet. Alternatively, you could have a friend rent and drive the rental car while you use their personal vehicle as many times standard auto insurance would cover you as a guest driver on the personal car and your friend in the rental car. But, that's a lot to ask of a friend.

In U.S. airports, in the after-security area, there is usually a customer service area for each airline. This is for re-printing boarding passes for people who lost them, and for re-booking for people who missed the flight while in the after-security area. You can talk to them in this area. If you've just arrived at the gate too late (e.g. they just closed ...

I just phoned ICBC. You can drive with an N. You need to sometimes provide your drivers abstract as they are not familiar with N licenses in the states and what they mean. Some companies will allow you to rent a car, others will be unsure and deny. Legally, you can drive with an N, but still must display your sign and follow all restrictions.

According to the latest policy i got (ottawa - toronto and back): It doesn't matter when you arrive anymore. It all depends on this number you have on the ticket. That number will determine your position in the lineup. So no point if you show up 1 hour head, if your ticket number says "50", then you have to lineup as the 50th person. The announcer will ...

Flights to Puerto Rico are considered domestic flights, and US Citizens do not need a passport to travel between the US and any US territories. However, foreign citizens do need a passport to travel between the two, (see answers.usa.gov) so I can't say for certain how a trip like that will affect your Green Card eligibility. Your best bet is to check with an ...

It is surely acceptable to ask staff. However, I know from experience that it is not uncommon in Atlanta that a member of the airline staff will be waiting at the gate asking everyone if they have connecting flights. This is the right person to ask. If I recall correctly, I also got a ticket there for the immigration fast lane. Should there be a line at ...

The travel consent letter is addressed to immigration officers, who want to avoid that one parent kidnaps the child to another country without consent from the other parent, thus making it very hard to retrieve the child. Traveling inside the country is much less of a risk, since there is no issue of lack of extradition treaties domestically. Also, as ...

My mom brings cheese back from France frequently. She declares it and tells them what it is if they ask. Vacuum sealing hasn't come up in the past. I don't think cheese from Holland will be handled any differently than cheese from France. The customs people are mainly concerned about non-aged unpasteurized whole milk cheese (eg. Camembert). Her cheese ...

Burlington Trailways doesn't seem to have a scheduled stop at the Eastern Iowa Airport but when you actually look at locations of the Burlington Trailways in Cedar Rapids you will find that it's right at the airport.
