comment Can someone living in China on a business visa write a letter of invitation for an S2 visa?
I don't know why you think that I am incorrect. The pages you are linking to clearly state that the S2 visa is for people intending to visit family members (spouses, parents, sons, daughters, spouses of sons or daughters, brothers, sisters, grandparents, grandsons, granddaughters and parents-in-law), which are resident in China.

Why do you think the S2 visa for family members is correct? Unless you are married to the person living in China ('girlfriend' seem to indicate that you are not), you are not entitled to an S2 visa.

I assumed that the freedom of movement rights were based on an EEA regulation or directive because of the title of the UK law and because the freedom of movement is within the EEA and not only within the EU.

comment Which countries can someone from Sweden freely travel to that someone from the Netherlands can't?
@Relaxed: And because of that (you can be denied entry to a country even if you don't need a visa), these counts are not very useful for any purpose at all. The Henley Index lists however the "Number of countries and territories which can be entered without a visa by a citizen of the respective country", so it does not make sense to include countries, for which you either need a visa-on-arrival or a pre-arranged electronic visa.

eVisa (in this context) just means that you can apply for the visa online instead of visiting a Turkish embassy or consulate. An application for a Turkish eVisa may of course be rejected, just as any other visa application.

There are further differences than the four you mention here. I don't care to check every country, but Swedes are e.g. allowed to travel to Turkey without a visa, while Dutch citizens require a visa for travel to Turkey.

comment ARP or LBO in Norway with Telenor
I've never sen any advertisements for ARP or LBO in Norway, so I would be pretty sure that these new services are not offered by any providers. You should perhaps also be aware that the deals for prepaid data traffic in Norway are not particularly good. Using Telenor prepaid directly, the data charge is limited to a daily 10 NOK, but you are also limited to 500MB transfer per calendar month. They offer no options to increase the amount of data. I am not aware of other providers with better deals (I've tried to find one though).

comment Is there a liability limit for a carry-on bag that was forcibly checked plane-side?
The best bet to be guaranteed to bring valuable or fragile items as carry-on luggage is to book an extra seat for the luggage. It may sound odd, but most airlines actually allow you to do so. It is often used for music instruments, but I would assume that this option can be used for other items as well, as long as the item does not violate any security restrictions for carry-on luggage.

@MichaelMathews: It does not directly answer the question, but it explains why the assumptions leading to the question are wrong. Since you have no unconditional right to bring carry-on luggage in the cabin, you will essentially not be forced to do anything unexpected and have of course no rights to claim anything extra (additional liability or to be booked on another flight) if the airline has to transport your intended carry-on luggage in the luggage room.

@MHH: Delta has the following passage in their terms and conditions: "Acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time the passenger boards. If adequate space is not available, Delta may require that the baggage be checked." The risk that intended carry-on luggage will be checked, is therefore known when booking a ticket. Other airlines will have similar disclaimers in their terms and conditions as well.

comment Can non-residents of Iceland bring alcohol into Iceland?
Be aware that the amounts of alcohol on the page you're linking to are also incorrect. I also found an obvious condradiction. According to the site, residents of Iceland are allowed to bring other goods for up to 65.000 ISK without paying taxes, while the value of one item must not exceed 88.000 ISK.

What was the reason given for approving a shorter period than what you applied for? Have you verified with the issuing consulate if they have made a mistake?
