comment How the US verifies person's citizeship given that US passports are optional?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about national citizenship law (how to prove citizenship).

comment First time to Europe, can I transfer in Germany to Copenhagen with a Denmark type D visa?
@Relaxed: You are right about that.

Why is the citizenship relevant? If he needs a visa for Denmark, he would also need a full Schengen visa for Germany to transfer or transit from an extra- to an intra-schengen flight independent of his citizenship.

comment When travelling do I have to keep the passport with me all the time?
Even if it's often claimed, in Germany, it is neither required for citizens nor for foreigners to carry a passport or id card. All persons (both nationals as well as foreigners) must be in the possession of id documents, but are not required to carry them at all times.

@neo Recognizing foreign id cards is not limited to the EU. It is not that uncommon that national id cards from neighbouring countries are recognized. If not as a travel document for border crossings, then at least for domestic identification purposes.

comment How should you drive on rush-hour lanes (“Spitsstrook”) in the Netherlands if they are open?
@andra: Why should I refrain to answer with relevant background information? Dealing with conflicting information or signage is such a basic problem in traffic, that it would have surprised me a lot if the Netherlands didn't follow the same rules as applied in most other contries.

comment How can I see currency exchange rates?
Knowing the interbank rates (as found e.g. on xe.com) is very useful to determine if an exchange office is trying to rip you off (as they often do) or operate with reasonable provisions.

comment Cancelled uk visa at the point of entry (with Removal form IS82C)
@SamOla: Can you, as I asked you in a comment to your question, post the entire text of the refusal? I don't necessarily agree with Gayot's interpretation of your situation, but you do not nearly provide the amount of detail necessary to give you better advice.

comment Cancelled uk visa at the point of entry (with Removal form IS82C)
Sorry, but I am usually not open for a chat in any arbritary 1-hour-window in the middle of the night. And I don't see why it should be necessary to discuss anything in the chat. An explanation why the usage of an IS 82C form indicates aggravating circumstances should easily fit in a single answer. The back and forth we are doing here in the comments is completely unnecessary.

And because I wanted to know what the form is used for (there are several examples found online, none of them especially aggravating, but no formal definition I could find) I asked you, since you make the impression to know it. Since you are repeatedly avoiding to answer my question, I am not sure anymore if that impression is correct.

Can you post the complete text of the refusal decision?

@GayotFow: I was just asking you to clarify your claims in the now deleted comments. If you know what you are talking about, why can't you just explain what's so aggravating with form IS 82C that you felt it right to accuse the OP the way you did? Referring to the 1200 pages long Enforcement Manual is not very helpful.

In the case, the refusal itself was found unjustified. It is not a topic on which form it was served.

@GayotFow: It would have been more helpful if you answered my question about what is so aggravating about an IS 82C refusal. The other cases I find with the usage of this form are not obviously more severe than the case I'm linking to.

What is so aggravating with form IS 82C? I can't find any formal description of the exact usage of the different refusal forms, but in this recent case, a student was refused leave to enter on form IS 82C because the attended college had lost its sponsoring licence in the meantime. Hardly a circumstance, for which the immigration officers had a reason to be REALLY ANGRY with the student: tribunalsdecisions.service.gov.uk/utiac/ia-07383-2013

comment How can I return to England as a British citizen with a Philippine passport?
I don't know why, but I also understood the original question as if the OP had both passports. If that's not the case, my comments don't make much sense. I deleted most of them.

comment How can I return to England as a British citizen with a Philippine passport?
I am completely confused. Why did Kate Gregory edit the title and add that the OP is a holder of a UK passport? Was there something in the original question or in the text indicating that?

@GayotFow You are linking to a 14 page document. What exactly do you mean?

For what purpose? Even if it's allowed, you would need a visa in your Philippine passport to be allowed to enter the UK and I doubt that the UK would issue a visa to their own citizens, just so that you can use a foreign passport to enter.
