comment Single parent entering Japan with 16 year old minor
Well, the US states that it's not needed, but that if you're asked for it, and can't produce, you'll definitely be delayed. See this page.

comment When South Africa's new regulations for travel with children begin, would a certified copy of unabridged birth certificates be acceptable?
US passports do not list parent information, but the new policy isn't supposed to stay until June 2015.

I'll be traveling with two kids (US passports) in April 2015. I'll try to remember to post whether the authorities want their birth certificates too. The new policy is supposed to take effect on 1 June 2015.

comment Connection flight in Miami and London, do i need a transit visa?
What is your passport/nationality? For others, C-1/D is a combined crewmember/transit visa designed for aircraft or sea vessels. Will you be working on these flights or...?

comment Visa process Indian visiting Egypt
is your last link correct? The statement on that page could be true for US passport holders only, not Indian passport holders.

comment Is there a list of countries that do not reset the time limit for Canada visits?
Rory, I interpret that last quote as "you don't have to explicitly apply for a multi-entry visa" but you could still get a single entry visa.

Arrange with someone to ship you more once you've calculated your consumption rate?

comment Travelling to San Francisco from Dublin to save money on tax- allowed?
Fined by whom? People make all kinds of connections and separate flights to save money. Just remember that you're trading money for time. If they're on different tickets, and there's a delay/canceled flight, you have no recourse for the Dublin-SFO ticket.

A late comment: We've tried Benadryl on one of my babies/toddlers twice and it made him hyper for about two hours.

comment What does “To book in house” mean?
My guess without context: It's a contact to a booking agency who will make the arrangements for you using the discounts that the conference has arranged.

comment How to pass time / manage a very long drive (25+ hours) with a group of people
I thought about walkie talkies but of course you'll have phones. What if there's no cell signal? Think about how to coordinate stops.

I had a longer penske truck towing a car traveling from Ohio to California through Texas. I was told to not enter the weigh stations. But we've had this question before...

comment Indian citizen living in United Kingdom wants to get a Schengen visa for France
He said he's on a business visa. While I do have a US mindset, that implies to me non-resident. Perhaps it's a work visa instead. Gayot Fow has asked the OP about the visa length.

Related question: Are birth certificates needed if a child has his or her own passport? I looked through the SA documentation and couldn't find anything.
