comment Missing baggage after connected Flight - what steps to take?
Singapore Airlines is responsible anyway even though they tried to say they weren't--convention is the last airline to handle them deals with it, if they never got the bags they bark at the airline that should have delivered them.

comment Can I drive to Mexico and catch an International flight without US passport?
@NateEldredge Strange, in that I've heard of people having trouble with the Mexican authorities at border crossings. Maybe there are some unmanned ones.

comment Can I use B1 visa to travel to any US state without a business purpose?
The reality is that even when you really are engaged in business it's unlikely to be 24/7. For someone on a business visa to engage in some tourism is normal.

comment How can I protect camera equipment in checked baggage?
Unfortunately, I have heard that the TSA often doesn't abide by these rules. They search your bag where they want to, you provide the key or combination or the bag doesn't fly.

Yeah, there are generic reminders, but nothing specific about your destination in my experience.

I don't recall ever being advised to get a visa, just a form e-mail that didn't address anything about where I was heading.

Almost been there. They tried to deny us boarding on the basis of expired visas. Yeah, there were expired visas from a cancelled trip, there were also current visas.

While I have not actually used the confirmation e-mail for anything in many years I always print it just in case.

comment Buying air ticket to USA for foreign citizen
I would be inclined not to do this--because she is a girlfriend. Immigration might suspect you're planning to marry.

comment do i have to retrieve my luggage and re check in upon arrival at usa?
@Doc You seem to be confusing airport procedures with border controls. Foreigners are expected to tell the US government they are leaving (the airline normally does this for you) but that's it. There's no actual immigration control.

@AriBrodsky Transit to another country or transit to another airport within the country--you need the same facilities, although in the latter case the destination airport must also have immigration and customs facilities.
