comment Does the Lao visa on arrival at the Thai border require a full blank passport page for Australians?
The top image is the same as what I have, but this was obtained via a consulate, not at the border.

comment Indian Visa in expired passport, new passport with husband's surname
The biggest risk is not being denied entry to the country, but being denied boarding of the flight. If a check-in agent doubts you have the correct documents, then you're not boarding the flight, and as in this case there's no clear statement anywhere that you don't need the marriage certificate, it's worth taking it to be sure.

comment How many jetways are used when boarding a Boeing 777 in SFO?
Stairs are common at some of the worlds largest airports, where they frequently use buses to get people between the terminal and the plane. eg, I've used stairs countless times to board/deplane 747s and 777s (as well as many narrow-bodies) at both Frankfurt and London Heathrow, which are certainly not "tourist route" airports. To stay on the original topic, no, they do not use stairs at SFO.

Not taking a copy of the marriage certificate is asking for trouble. This is bad advise - especially for a country like India.

comment Can I buy a plane ticket from A-B-C but get on the plane at B?
Although to might be a fairly specific question, it has a very generic answer. Hidden City Ticketing, which is what this is, is a very valid question, IMHO...

comment How can I purchase duty free liquids if I'm connecting through the US?
What you experienced coming FROM Canada to the US is what's called "pre-clearance" and occurs for all CA->US flights, as well as some flights from Dublin and Shannon in Ireland. However I've never heard of anyone coming from Peru not having to collect luggage on transit - that's certainly a new one for me!

comment Catching separately ticketed flights through an airport without leaving the transit area
Your question is confusing. Are you connecting in NBO (like your first paragraph says) or in IST (as the 2nd paragraph says)?

comment Is Greek driver's license valid in the US?
No, it was repealed outright. Canadians were the ones most impacted (simply due to quantity), but there were other issues, such as it going against the Geneva Convention you mention above.
