comment Train passport control from London to Paris
One more thing, if your train is from Brussels and you board at Lille you will be checked again in London, but is a more easy one. Tickets and passport only.

comment Schengen visa for UK Banned
It is better to disclose rather than hide. Many EU countries share such information and it would surely flag up for your case. Check this page for more information ec.europa.eu/dgs/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/… But I don't see any mention of any of this in the Schengen visa application form.

comment Can I travel from France to UK with a recently expired French passport?
Be ready to be questioned or maybe even turned back too. UKBA is quite strict on stuffs like this.

comment What is more efficient when connecting through London Southend (SEN): LHR or LGW?
LGW might be cheaper and maybe quicker in some cases too. Liverpool Street to London Bridge/Farringdon will be around 15 minutes. London Bridge to LGW is only around 30 minutes if FCC is running fine(Farringdon is probably 10 minutes more), else would be around an hour if you take the Southern. And cheaper too.

comment What's the quickest Schengen consulate to issue a visa in London?
It all depends on your application and the evidences provided. France processed mine in 3 days. But every consulate says might take upto 2 weeks.

comment Getting a Schengen visa without firm travel plans
One other case. As most embassies have outsourced the document collection, I would doubt they would even accept the application. The outsourcers aren't so knowledgable about the rules, from experience, and probably would refuse. Even if you quote them the rules, I seriously doubt if they would understand to pass on the application to the embassy. If you deposit directly at the embassy, still then you would need some convincing but they would relent.

comment Can I get back my passport after applying for a Schengen visa?
15 days is pessimistic. Some issue within a day or two and some take around 10 working days.

comment Schengen visa “refresh”
@Annoyed - Why are you annoyed ? I just cited an example nothing more. Nobody is going to trawl through 111 pages of the document you linked to or the website you linked to. It isn't exactly easy to pinpoint the information.

comment Schengen visa “refresh”
two visas with overlapping validity. From my experience, Schengen countries don't issue overlapping visas. They will at best issue one which starts a day later than the expiry of the current one. Some may refuse, but haven't seen one doing so.

comment Can Indian nationals not visit the UK for a short course (not by a university)?
For courses in colleges, you need a letter from the college(organizers) to file with your visa. If they say no, then it is next to impossible to get a visa. If you do enter with a different visa(tourist) to attend the course, you will be breaking the conditions of your visa and if caught might be deported, which is not a good scenario.

comment How to appeal a denied Schengen visa?
@Flimzy - I didn't ridicule anybody, nor my statement is in any way so. It is your assumption, not mine. I posted for the OP to correct. And generally a British citizen, would know English.

comment How can I get to Luton Airport from Watford via public transport?
Walk the way from Church St. You are being paranoid. And why are you wary of walking to the Luton airport. Luton isn't Somalia, that you will be shot at, at random.

comment Is it possible to fly both the Airbus 380 and the Boeing 787 in one trip?
You will have to trawl through all ticketing websites to figure that out. Many, almost all, ticketing websites generally mention the plane being used.

comment Multi currency bank account for my travel
@Annoyed - It is a reasonable assumption that a person going to a country would surely have checked out what is the currency of his(her) destination country. I based my comment on that assumption that the OP already knows that Swiss have a different currency.
