comment Can reentry be denied to citizen?
Can't the person be stripped of his nationality? Osama Bin Laden was stripped of his Saudi citizenship, while Saudi Arabia is a signatory of the Geneva Convention.

comment Which ATMs offer no-fee cash withdrawals in Chile?
Not really, no. Last week I used Bank of Chile. They did not want to charge me. I think it comes down to specific agreements between your bank and Chilean banks. Keep in mind that ATMs in 'premium' locations (like, inside a mall or a shop) are more likely to charge for withdrawals. Also, I've seen Chileans occasionally get cashbacks when paying with cards. You could try your luck with that, too.

This is called 'harm reduction' when related to drugs.

comment Why 1000 and 500 Indian rupee are not accepted in Nepal and Bhutan?
Nice. But... can you perhaps include a source for your claim that both governments explicitly agreed to permit the use of these notes?

Come on. I had it has a comment, was asked to make it an answer, and now it's not good as an answer. Feel free to edit it, though.

comment Does the sufficiency of an ID-card for travelling abroad depend on the airline?
The airline can deny you boarding for a wide range of reasons, plenty of which have no connection to whether you have a passport on you or not. So, purely theoretically, yes, the airline can deny you boarding if they are clear they require you to have a passport. However, if they did not communicate this requirement to you before you booking your ticket, they have very little to go on to enforce this requirement, when you don't need the passport to enter your destination country. Though, granted, when you are at the checkin desk, this will be little solace, indeed.

comment Accommodation in Rancagua, Chile for less than 30 USD/night?
Exactly. Airbnb is a bit cheaper, but nothing that's conventional. At least, not which can be found online.

comment What are the pros and cons of visiting the Iguazu Falls from the Argentinian side or Brazilian side only?
Are you asking what the pros and cons are of either side? Or, what a visitor would miss if they don't visit one of the two sides?

Absolutely. I was looking for something that could be booked straightaway.

comment Can I get a transit visa on arrival in Istanbul?
@MarkMayo: As you wish. Though I feel that so many questions on here are about Turkish visas that this question is possibly a duplicate.

comment Letter from attorney about representing me for Speeding ticket in USA
I don't think this is sufficiently related to travel. However, we recently had another question about toll roads (travel.stackexchange.com/questions/52634/…, which I also voted to close) which the community did think was valid. If that was valid, it follows that this one likely would also be considered valid.

comment Carrying Bitcoin Internationally
The credit card analogy makes a lot of sense to me for moving the wallet. Editing the answer, even though the question is on hold :(

comment Carrying Bitcoin Internationally
@A.Human: With international bank transfers, money is often actually not moved, just ledgers adjusted, which to me sounds rather similar. Yet, large transfers need to be reported.

I read OP's message as saying that his bank doesn't charge at all for withdrawals.

It seems we'll have to disagree here on the details. The beauty of the system we use, here.
