comment Traveling to US with ESTA but have an Iranian father. Do I need a visa instead?
@chx I am not considering 'national' and 'citizen' the same. The exact definition is often based on legal, jurisdiction-dependent knit-picking, though the words are often used colloquially with the same meaning. In US nationality law, a 'national' is considered a broader term than 'citizen', i.e. citizens of country A are considered nationals of country A as well, while nationals are not always citizens.

comment Does a “Visa on Departure” exist?
@CMaster: Some eVisas are usually granted immediately. You mention eVisas in your question, but wouldn't that be an answer as well? E.g. when flying to Turkey, for which I need a visa, I could go to the departure airport, apply for a visa myself, which is probably immediately granted, and use that visa when checking in. Or are you asking for personal facilities on the departure airport, operated by a foreign government?

Your first question is a duplicate of this one, although I disagree with jpatokal's answer: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/8066/…

You should split this up in three different questions. The third is however opinion based and is likely to be closed.

comment One-way USA to Switzerland without a return ticket
@PeterGreen Proof of onward travel is not a requirement for non-EEA citizens to enter the Schengen area (as I already explained in my answer).

comment Is 1hr 10m enough transfer time in Brussels airport?
You will have to go through immigration control when entering the Schengen area in Brussels and when leaving in Munich: Are you a UK citizen (or a citizen of another EU or EEA country)? Which airline(s) are you flying with through Munich? If you have to change terminal and go through immigration, 50 minutes sounds too optimistic for me.

comment Who can use the CBX Bridge between Mexico and the United States?
It is unclear what your exact situation is. You claim to get a 'visa on entry' when flying to Mexico, but there is no such thing as a visa on entry or visa on arrival in the Mexican immigration regulations. You are either free to enter without a visa or you need to get a visa in advance. Unless you refer to the Mexican Electronic Authorization System, which excempts some citizens from the visa requirement, but using that way, you still don't get a 'visa on entry'.

comment Buying a phone SIM card out of the country
I suggest to close this question as too broad. Each network provider is likely to have their own rules if new SIM cards are sent by mail at all and if they are willing to send it to a foreign country. Since it is usually very easy to buy and activate a SIM card on site, why do you need the SIM card in advance anyway?

@MichaelHampton Abbreviations for physical units and SI prefixes are indeed case sensitive. mg, Mg, mG and MG are four different things.

comment What is technically considered as a deportation (old double-layover in Schengen area)?
@chx That depends on the country. When refused entry to a Schengen country, the entry stamp will be crossed out as in the image. There is no additional stamp with an 'entry denied' text or anything similar. The letter 'C' below the stamp means that entry was refused due to lack of a required visa or residence permit.
