comment Schengen Visa to travel to Romania
@JoeBlow Note though that Romania is not part of the Schengen area, so the situation may be a bit different (i.e. even more risky than described in that answer).

comment Aerosol cans in the checked luggage?
I just checked three entirely different products, and all of them have some sort of flammability warning (one says "don't use next to open flame", one says "flammable" and one "extremely flammable"). Must be the gas used to propel the material from the can. Based on your link I get the impression that most sprays would not be okay.

comment International travel with parrots
@JoeBlow Of course it couldn't! They would suffocate and/or freak out in the dark. It does not necessarily have to be a cage, there are different types of carriers, some of them soft. The best carriers appear to be ones like this. They come in small sizes and since it's completely transparent, TSA is less likely to want to get the bird out (unsafe) and put the carrier through the x-ray machine. Unfortunately they are also extremely expensive. I'm still trying to find a standard wire cage of the right size.

comment International travel with parrots
Reading your answer, I think my question was not well phrased or maybe it was just too long. Can you suggest how to clarify my question? I was trying to ask about the 1. specific legal/customs requirement for exporting cockatiels, and 2. how to ensure the safety of birds.

comment International travel with parrots
Cockatiels are common, and there's no problem with importation/exportation. Of course it's necessary to do the correct paperwork. That is why I asked the question. This answer is not helpful because it just rehashes some of the question, but does not answer any point.

@JoeBlow They don't. The carrier has to fit under the seat in front of you.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Why would you doubt the legality of either the importation of exportation? (No, it is not illegal.)

comment International travel with parrots
I had a similar (not quite duplicate) question on Pets.SE a month ago, which did not receive an answer. There is very little information about parrots (most information is about dogs and cats). It is not completely clear to me what is and what isn't on-topic here. Let me know what needs to be done (remove parts or split up the question) to make it acceptable (as I did on Pets.SE). If necessary, I can remove the Pets.SE question to satisfy any no-duplicates policy. I'm really just looking for some useful information, very difficult to find.
