comment Is a transit visa required when travelling from UK to New Zealand via Sydney?
@ing0 If you miss your connecting flight, you may need to obtain a visa on the spot. I expect that this is common enough that there will be a customs officer present who knows what to do.

comment How can I convert my French driving license to a Massachusetts driving license?
@LessPop_MoreFizz Regardless of the legal status (why would that be relevant?), this question is about a situation with clear plans to go back home in a fairly short time frame.

comment How can I convert my French driving license to a Massachusetts driving license?
@LessPop_MoreFizz This question is not about long-term immigration (what's short-term immigration anyway? Immigrating on your deathbed?) nor about relocation. It's about a short stay (a few months).

comment Which digits should I eliminate when giving my number to foreign travellers so as to not confuse them?
@LessPop_MoreFizz I meant to split, of course (I explain why you should split it), but there was a typo. Indeed it doesn't really matter in the US (or more generally in the NANP), but it matters (almost) everywhere else.

comment Can tourists get French cheque books?
@Gagravarr They're quite different: cheques are payment orders to a specific beneficiary, whereas travellers cheques are more like cash that can only be used by one person. But travellers cheques might solve the same problem. I've never heard of prepaid cheques (except for a fee for very large sums, e.g. for buying a car).

comment What's the cheapest way to fly to Cuba?
I don't know if it's still true, but in the cold war days, maybe even the 1990s, Cuba was where you'd transfer for the cheapest flights between Europe and Latin America.
