comment Converting Older United States Dollar Bills
Not only can you still convert it, but you might even be able to sell it for more than face value if it is very old or rare.

I do not believe you can "turn around" in the middle of a major international bridge.

comment Entering using one passport and exiting using another
@AdityaSomani: Yes, you can use a valid U.S. visa on an expired passport along with an unexpired passport from the same country. See travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/general/…

comment What are the residence requirements to use a foreign driving licence in California?
@landroni: if you expatriate to some place, then aren't you by definition a resident of that place?

Usually, one would only get a driver's license in a place where you're resident -- the fact that you get a driver's license means you reside there.

comment Canadian visiting the USA after previously being denied?
@canadmos: yes, by first time I meant the one during which you overstayed (2005). If you didn't get anything like any other Canadian, then you cannot have unlawful presence, and cannot have a 212(a)(9)(B) ban.

comment Canadian visiting the USA after previously being denied?
@canadmos: Right, you got an I-94 the last time after they got pissed off at you for a previous overstay. But the question is whether you got an I-94 the first time.

@Karlson: Canadian visitors generally don't need a visa and don't get an I-94. It would be unusual if he got one.

comment Canadian visiting the USA after previously being denied?
In particular, Canadian visitors who were not given an I-94 are treated like people admitted for Duration of Status, and people admitted for Duration of Status cannot start accruing unlawful presence unless 1) they get ruled against by an immigration judge, or 2) they apply for a benefit to USCIS, who finds a violation. (uscis.gov/sites/default/files/ilink/docView/AFM/HTML/AFM/…) Absent either of these, a Canadian visitor does not have unlawful presence, and thus cannot have a 212(a)(9)(B) ban.

comment Canadian visiting the USA after previously being denied?
"You should have received 10 year entry ban for the 1 year overstay in 2007" But was the OP unlawfully present? Immigration terms are often complicated and counter-intuitively defined. Someone who does not have unlawful status is not necessarily unlawfully present (uscis.gov/sites/default/files/ilink/docView/AFM/HTML/AFM/…).

comment Do Chinese citizens require a visa to go to Hong Kong for less than 7 days?
I don't see what the problem is -- the "country" is the non-China country. So from Malaysia -> Hong Kong, the OP is "transiting" HK "from a third country" (Malaysia) to Mainland China (supposedly); and from Hong Kong -> Malaysia, they are "transiting" HK from Mainland China (supposedly) "to a third country" (Malaysia).

comment Travel to US two day before B1 visa expires
@user11726: The I-94 expiration date has absolutely nothing to do with the visa expiration date. The I-94 will probably be for 6 months or however long the officer decides.

Ansari is right. The U.S. does not have exit checks. You cannot get an exit stamp.

comment US citizen travelling to UK with expired US passport for a minor and valid UK passport
@Doc: But to provide "correct" information to APIS for dual nationals who must use a different passport to enter the destination country, that means that airline has to be provided with the information of multiple passports. I doubt most airline staff will ask for multiple passports, and if you give them multiple passports, they might get confused.
