comment Using an Amazon Kindle onboard a flight?
Technically, the kindle has no current except when changing pages as the screen is solid state... now whether the flight attendants will know that is another question.

comment Bringing a camping knife to Japan
That is indeed good advice. Personally I bring my knife whenever I travel in Asia (as I live here, that is a lot). However, Japan is the only place I have experienced excessive discrimination by immigration. I suppose I'll just leave it.

Also, I've noticed a few questions about Taiwan from you. A lot of this can be answered search forumosa.com. It is the expat forums in Taiwan.

comment Taiwan visa “maximum stay” clarification
@justinl To be frank, the immigration office isn't the place to ask and may supply you with bad information. Not that it is wrong in this case, but it has happened to me before with another issue. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs generally has everything up to date, though.

comment China visa issue
Yup, perfect. Just needed to know if their immigration offices are linked. I checked the link and will drop by. I've always been weary of visa resource offices, but it might be time to get over that.

comment Bringing a camping knife to Japan
While this doesn't really answer the question, this has been open to long and I will go ahead and accept it. I was asking for more personal experience in the topic.

comment China visa issue
@Wenzi This is not an answer, I am aware I do not need a Chinese visa to go to Taiwan. Please read my question more clearly. Yes, at the time I had an extendable 3 month reentry visa. You clearly do not know much about Taiwanese immigration. You can fly through GuangZhou to China according to an agreement at the beginning of 2010 allowing 'cross-stright' flights. They made me take a visa to fly thought China to Taiwan. This doesn't answer anything.

comment Visit the UK with Schengen tourist short-stay visa
UK has opted out of signing the Schengen agreement. However, this is an interesting question... if have a Schengen grants a landing visa.
