comment Is it rude to give up your seat in Japan?
@FranciscoPresencia: older women can be notoriously unabashed and might well do it, but what I was really thinking of is that someone else would call you out, thus taking the role of "enforcing social norms" (or maybe "educating the gaijin") rather than "requesting privilege".

comment Is it rude to give up your seat in Japan?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit I believe the point (with which I somewhat agree) is that this kind of polite behaviour is pretty universal in modern societies and thus it doesn't really matter where the question or the answer is from. Only the details vary.

comment If you have a rental car from outside Germany, can you enter the environmental zones?
@andra: No, I'm saying that foreign rental agencies which allow their cars to be taken into Germany will provide such papers.

@Gagravarr: if you don't have them with you, you'd actually be breaking another German law.

@Imso1987: I have no idea. Shouldn't be too hard to find out on the various embassies' websites.

comment How to enforce transit points during flight booking to avoid transit visas?
@Imso1987: according to the airport's website (see link in answer) Cayman Airways provides regular services from Kingston, Jamaica - that might be a possibility.

comment Is there an obligation to renew a small child's passport before its expiry date?
The immigration officer being German is relevant. It probably ran against his innate sense of orderliness that a document that exists to identify persons fails to fulfill this purpose and could be fixed but isn't- even if this state is widely tolerated and legally allowed for practical reasons.
