Online check-in for international flights is pretty much non-functional at the moment. Every country has specific and quickly changing requirements of permission to enter, covid testing, travel registration & approval etc. Automated systems are not keeping up and hence in-person doc check at the airport is required. In your care case you need a negative ...

I'm now 18 and I'm wondering if I still get the penalty for overstaying in the U.S for over 180 days even if I was a minor. The accumulation of unlawful presence for determining statutory inadmissibility does not include periods of overstay when one is a minor. See 8 USC 1182(a)(9)(B)(III)(I): (iii) Exceptions (I) Minors No period of time in which an ...

A partial answer regarding your third bullet point: Quarantine rules on return to Germany will depend on how Germany classifies the pandemic situation in Austria, notably regarding mutant varieties (Virusvarianten-Gebiete). This classification may change on short notice, even while you're already abroad. So better plan with the worst-case scenario of 14 days ...

You don't write why you are going to Austria, but going for tourism on May 14th will not be possible. Coming from Germany, you are currently after entering Austria required to quarantine for at least 5 days unless you are covered by any of the exceptions, which you as a tourist will not be. Hotels and restaurants are also closed. New rules in Austria will ...

The rules in Austria will radically change on the 19th of May. For the immigration side of the question, as a resident of Germany you may freely enter Austria and return to Germany. At the moment there are about 32 daily train connections between the 2 cities. Covid-19 conditions when returning to Germany will be based on whether you are fully vaccinated (or ...

You need to file a declaration in Amsterdam. Relevant example from belastingdienst.nl Example: flight from Tokyo to Paris via Amsterdam You are flying from Tokyo (Japan) to Paris (France) via Amsterdam (the Netherlands). You arrive in the European Union in the Netherlands. If you leave the flight in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) (transfer), you will have to ...

You must declare that you carry more than €10.000 once you pass Customs. This is likely to happen in Poland. Netherlands and Poland are in the Schengen Area, so you enter the EU when you first land in Amsterdam. You have two options to reach Poland then: either by car/train/bus, leaving the airport, or by transiting into the domestic flights area. I ...

Probably best to contact your local passport-issuing authority or your nearest Embassy or Consulate. Since the passport in question is US, you can find the official list of Embassies/Consulates/Diplomatic Missions from US Embassy.gov. Give them a call, and they'll be more than happy to help you!

If they chose to travel on their Canadian passport alone, what procedures or difficulties should they anticipate when sailing from the UK to Ireland? As per your question, if we ignore all the UK-Ireland common travel area stuff, and go solely based on Candian citizenship, you can check the Irish Department of Justice website for guidance on what visas are ...

Although it doesn't say so explicitly the advice you are reading is aimed at British Citizens who don't hold another citizenship. It is for people who claim British citizenship as their reason for being allowed to travel, but who will need to be able to prove it on that ferry because of the EU exit deal. If you are legitimately in the UK and Ireland as a ...

No, it won't work. But the Canadian passport does. The problem is that while the person has right of citizenship in the UK by ius sanguinis (right of birth, Latin wording), they don't have a UK passport or other official UK document supporting this claim. The ferry company, as a private company, is not necessarily entitled/obligated to examine all possible ...

I'm assuming that this is all on a single ticket. After your arrival, you will have to go through immigration, and then (i think) transfer security, which will then bring you into the A area on the second floor. FRA has a direct immigration passthrough between A and Z. If you get off the plane, follow the signs to A gate. You need to go through passport ...

The map you are using is quite simplified. While indeed there is one pier A/Z, that pier has 3 levels, depending on where you are departing to or arriving from. Your flight to Berlin leaves at the Schengen area in concourseA, which is on the second floor. Flights to the US leave at the Z concourse, which is one level above A (i.e. third floor), and the so-...

ePassports are a subset of eMRTDs (Electronic Machine Readable Travel Documents). The data that can be stored on them is governed by ICAO 9303 (specifically part 10 and 11). Most of the data that it allows to be stored is optional, and only required data is also printed on eMRTDs' identity pages. From what I've seen, the data that's on eMRTDs varies greatly ...

In additon to information printed on the passport document the chip stores a face image in digital form (although it is the same image that is printed on the passport, its quality isn't affected by reflections, degradation over the years, dirt... therefore you could consider it as "other" information) in most cases fingerprint data, and maybe ...


2

In addition to the information which is also written as human-readable text and the facial image that is printed in the passport, the chip also contains biometric data such as fingerprints (one exception is for passports issued by Ireland, which do not contain fingerprints). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biometric_passport#European_Union_/_EFTA for ...

With high probability, it contains exactly what is written on the hard plastic card, nothing more. How would that other information even get there? The chip is read-only, so you would need a new passport every time they want to store that you travelled.

Which information is stored in European Passports other than what is written in it? In French passports, until 2008 the chip didn't contain any other information on the passport holder, then in 2008 the law changed and fingerprints of two fingers were added. Note that the chip does include a digital version of the photo printed on the passport. Source: ...
