comment How to behave on a US visa interview?
@dbkk: as I've wrote, depends on consulate. OTOH, I know of people from non-EU countries (Latin America or Eastern Europe), who had experiences similar to mine.

comment How to behave on a US visa interview?
@d33tah: for me it was (I've applied in Amsterdam, I don't speak Dutch). AFAIK in Warsaw it is possible to do it in Polish.

comment Travelling to the US with codeine-based medicines
I thing problem here isn't whether it's prescription drug or not, but the fact that codeine is narcotic, and as such by the Controlled Substances Act, your pills are most likely considered Schedule III drugs

comment US employer suggests two 90 day contract periods instead of work visa. Is this okay?
"this is an internship" - that is what J-1 is for. Much easier to get than H-1B.

comment Renting apartaments for less than month in Europe?
@Annoyed: First hand I know of that requirement in the Netherlands and Spain. In both cases you can get shorter contract, but it's kind of in gray zone, it won't be official rental contract. As far as I know other European countries have similar laws. In theory they are to protect tenants, in practice they are to protect hotel industry.

comment Renting apartaments for less than month in Europe?
In many European countries rental contract for period shorter than 1 year is not even legal. Anything shorter falls under similar legal requirements as hotels.

comment How to intentionally get denied entry to the US, without getting into trouble?
"even visiting a church and asking to speak in confidence", that's like the worse advice ever. Spanish Catholic church is very hard-line on the Holy Matrimony, and they strongly oppose divorce. Besides, she's from Pakistan, thus most likely Muslim, not Catholic.
