That's unlikely - not without some effort for extra documentation. Any plants being brought in have to be declared, and you need certifications with them: https://ec.europa.eu/food/plant/plant_health_biosecurity/non_eu_trade_en certain plants, plant products and other objects (listed in Part B, Annex V - Directive 2000/29/EC) entering the EU must have ...

We have crossed the Canadian border many times in a car, with multiple people having passports from a European country with Visa waiver status. They flew in the US (having an ESTA), so this should be the exact situation that you describe. In every instance, the Canadian border officers took our passports (handed through the driver's window), asked some ...

This is not a case of "if you do x it probably means you plan y." It is more "people who plan y almost always x." In this case, if you are going to hijack a plane, or perform a suicide bombing, you are unlikely to buy the tickets and patiently wait 6 weeks. You don't care how much it costs, since either someone else is funding it or you will never pay the ...

From the article: Visiting certain countries, taking unusual flight routes and last minute ticket changes are known to prompt extra checks. Honestly, to me "are known" is just bad journalism indicating "I'm too lazy to research this". If there is credible source for this claim, it should be cited so the underlying data or research can be verified and ...

It may be just that border police checks in advance your planned route so that you can pass controls quickly. In case of a last minute change, they have to check again. Nothing "suspicious" there.

Lacking the relevant information makes answering this difficult. If you were in Transit: yes, you will have a problem, since in the future they will see that you entered without a proper exit stamp and will assume that you overstayed. Since the burden of proof lays with you, retain the ticket proving that you entered and left that airport. If you have an ...

I live in Tijuana, and cross the border at the two Tijuana ports of entry regularly without issue. If you stay away from the dodgy parts of the city (eg the red light district) and don't do anything stupid you'll be fine and safe. People cross in the US without a passport regularly here - you'll be asked more questions and need to prove you're a US citizen ...

For $30, you can walk directly from the Tijuana baggage claim to the United States border via CBX (Cross Border Xpress). That seems like the safest option, even if the others are not very dangerous. It does require a passport, however, so if your need to use the land border is motivated by a lack of a passport, it looks like this won't help you. Their ...

No, it does not affect your visa. B1/2 visas are issued based on individual eligibility and not as a group. Plans change. Visa and immigration officers know that. You can use your visa for an entirely different trip at an entirely different time as long as the purpose of that trip is allowed under your visa category. It is extremely unlikely that this ...
