comment traveling across USA — where to find microwave
You want a gas station that has an attached "mart" or a 7-11 or something like that. They usually sell some food that you can heat up (like burritos) so there should be a microwave.

comment Mexican visa requirements for US citizens
Do mean Mexican visas for US citizens? US State Dept says that you can get tourist visas upon arrival. Note: your kids will need passports too.

comment should we need to return to own country before visa expires?
Qatar airlines may be assuming that if the flight is delayed or canceled or has its departure time changed, that you would then be in violation of your visa. Thus they want you to leave Schengen at least a day early.

comment Supplying your own needle for Blood test for a Kurdistan residency permit
I would expect that you can't provide your own needle, because there's no way to guarantee that it hasn't been tampered with.

comment Is it possible to buy a computer monitor and HRM watch in Colombo, Sri Lanka duty-free airport shops?
One question is whether you'll actually be able to access the duty free shop. won't you be funneled to immigration, then customs/luggage, and then out? That is, no opportunity to access the shops.

Interesting! Can you find an official cite? I've looked but can't find anything. Closest thing was an earlier question here, answered by Doc.

I tried looking for a Japanese-owned downtown hotel, but didn't find anything. 25 years ago, there was one in Sydney.

comment Is this back to back ticketing or throwaway ticketing?
I haven't done this internationally, but I've certainly done it domestically when I had to make several trips on the same itinerary within a few months.

There's a very interesting (to me, at least) paper at the NIH on "Recommendations for management of Diabetes during Ramadan.".

comment Marital status for re-entering USA if you got married abroad without registering?
I think you're better off marrying in the US, applying for adjustment of status and advance parole, and once that clears then having a 2nd ceremony in your home country.

comment Is there a liability limit for a carry-on bag that was forcibly checked plane-side?
I bet it doesn't matter--that they won't cover beyond the liability. What if an attendant was moving bags in the overhead bin, and yours fell out. What if someone kicked an item you had under the seat in front of you and broke something? I can't see them accepting liability beyond what was stated in the carriage terms.

Can you extract the item so you can still take it on-board? I know this is not the question you asked.

I assume it's the end date of his family visitor's visa.

I think @pnuts is asking that for the questions where you found a solution yourself, add an answer and accept it.
