comment As a French citizen, how long can I travel through Canada?
@David: Tourism visas are by most countries issues for short periods to allow a temporary visit. It is already quite generous that Canada allows for a 6 month stay without a visa and quite exceptional that they allow a visitor to extend this period with an in-country application. If you are really planning to stay for a year in Canada, I would assume that you (as in most other countries) can or must apply for a residence permit.

comment Being denied entry to Israel due to political activism?
@EugeneO: I was just trying to summarize the content of the page and not give an exact translation. The relevant statement is: "Det forekommer at reisende blir avvist av sikkerhetsgrunner uten at det blir gitt noe nærmere forklaring." or translated "It occurs that travellers are being rejected due to security concerns without further explanation." Looking into the reported cases, it is obvious that "expressed a pro Palestinian opinion" is enough to be "rejected ... without further explanation".

@Vince: Did you continue until the last result page starting with "To begin, you can only visit Canada for six months. If you want to visit longer, you can apply to extend your stay from within Canada."? Perhaps I don't use the same answers as you to the question?

Sorry about that, I didn't realize that the link didn't work. I've modified it now to hopefully point to the start page.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about translation.

comment Is it possible to reduce the long-distance train fare in Norway?
I don't know if your question is still valid. The full price ticket is 2440 kroner, you've already found the cheapest offer yourself for 498 kroner and still want it cheaper? There are of course other options than taking the train. Hitch-hiking, walking or going by bike will probably be cheaper.

comment Is it possible to reduce the long-distance train fare in Norway?
You are aware that the prices on the page you're linking to is in Norwegian kroner and not in euro? You can get a return ticket for 498 kroner (about 61 euro), which is pretty fair for 800km one way.

comment How to get from Bucharest Romania to Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina
Is time an issue? If you consider just one overnight train, I think you might be underestimating the distance and the time it takes to travel by train or bus in many East-European countries. There is a feasible train connection via Budapest and Zagreb, but it takes almost 48 hours and you have to spend a night in Zagreb.

comment Heathrow Customs - “Arrivals from the EU” exit
@Relaxed: If you carry too much cash, you go through the red lane to declare it. That does not answer what the blue lane is for or why there is a difference between the green and blue lanes.

comment Heathrow Customs - “Arrivals from the EU” exit
@Relaxed: I still don't understand which procedures you are talking about, which differ depending on where you are coming from. If anything should be called a "procedure", it must be that you have to take the red lane and declare any items beyond the free amount (irrelevant of the extent of the free amount). Except for that, there is nothing wrong in what you're writing, it just does not answer VictorySaber's question.

comment Heathrow Customs - “Arrivals from the EU” exit
The "procedure" is that you have to select the red lane if you bring anything susceptible to import tax. If you don't, you use the green or blue lane depending on where you come from. Except that you are allowed to bring other products or e.g. more alcohol and tobacco from EU countries without paying import tax, there is no obvious difference between what's expected from you when go through customs. The question was for the purpose of separating the green and blue lanes and there is nothing in your answer, which addresses exactly that issue.

comment Cost of eating in San Francisco
@EdmundYeung99: It does not make sense at all to compare with prices in "Western Europe" and putting cheap countries like Spain or Portugal in the same group as utterly expensive countries like Norway or Switzerland.

comment Heathrow Customs - “Arrivals from the EU” exit
What differs in which procedures? If you are taken aside for customs control in the green or blue lane, the custom officer will probably anyway check where you're coming from.

comment Are there any night bus companies, with beds, in Europe?
Passenger's safety regulations may be a problem here. In Germany, it is not allowed to transport lying passengers in buses (StVZO §35i(2)). I suppose other European countries will have similar restrictions.

comment Transit through Schengen area with Bulgarian visa?
@Karlson: Dortmund and Stuttgart, but I slowly have absolutely no clue about why you're asking instead of checking yourself if you find this somehow relevant to the question. Are you just trying to find an excuse for the irrelevance of the mistakes in your answer?

@Karlson: If it really matters, there are flights from several of these German airports to Zhuliany, one of the other airports in Kiev.
