comment Overstayed my visa for over 9 years, never got deported, can I return as a tourist after 9 years?
@cpast: I suppose your basic premise is correct. That said, I don't think you'd be able to get away with a situation like that in most European countries. Systems like those are linked.

Of course there's a chance. Isn't there always? But, applying common sense, it seems it's not likely. Can't you simply claim you're not the same person as the one that lived in the US for nine years? (Also, I'm amazed that an illegal alien can pay taxes in the US.)

comment Why must the name on my passport match the booking details?
I personally know a few people who share names with people on certain no-fly lists. This is a problem for which those that create these no-fly lists do not provide a solution. In practice, the non-terrorist John Smith somehow has to prove he's not the terrorist John Smith. Typically, this gets resolved, but might involve having to show up at an airport six hours in advance or being put on a later flight.

Ryanair flies neither to Amsterdam not Belfast. It would have to be Eindhoven to Dublin. And, for this month there are still 23 euro tickets available on that route, with 18 euro tickets for next month.

comment Why is there a street with a date as a name in Belgium?
Plenty of countries have dates for street names. May 1st, to name but one, is a popular one in many places.

comment How strict are the airlines if one's bag is only 2cm bigger than the rule?
Those 'if it fits' boxes are often a tad larger than what the airline actually states as their maximum size.

comment From what point could you view the most countries?
Yeah, I did think about that. But isn't the claim on northern Kashmir a bit tenuous?
