See the answer by @Chris Melville, he is in the business and knows what he talks about. You still have two months before Christmas, best to initiate the passport or ID card replacement right now, with a request for fast service as the earlier try was not handled as it should be. If you can not get your passport or ID card replaced in time while not in ...

"My Greek ID is in a bad condition and will not be accepted" How bad? Do not assume that it won't be accepted. Even if it's a bit tatty, as long as your photograph still identifies you - and contains no signs of tampering or fraud - then it will be accepted. Possibly the MRZ (Machine-Readable Zone) won't work if the card is too spoiled. But this isn't a ...

Yes, this is allowed for EU passport holders depending on how long you spend outside of Brazil in between visits, and how long your visits last. Exception: this regulation does not apply to citizens of Croatia, Portugal, Poland, United Kingdom and Ireland. As seen on their website Brazil allows: The 90-day period begins on the date of first entry and will ...

According to the UK Border Force: You no longer have to fill in a landing card. Your passport (and visa if you have one) will be checked at border control. You’ll usually be asked why you’re coming to the UK. Therefore the question is pretty much moot, as no one will have to fill out landing cards anymore as of 2019, regardless of what happens during the ...

According to the UK government website, nothing much will change for you as a citizen until at least 2021. That means you will not require a passport for traveling to the UK after Brexit if you already have a valid EU Identification Card. What you’ll need to enter the UK If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen What you’ll need to enter the UK will not change ...

The "electronic authorisation" for EU citizens you describe in your question is actually a visa for the purposes of Australian law - eVisitor (subclass 651). The Department's website lists the standard conditions that apply to this kind of visa. One of them is condition 8201, which reads: 8201 - Maximum 3 months study While in Australia, you must ...

If I were you, I would change my flight. How much? Ask the authorities how long they expect it to take. My Hellenic mother had a similar experience with an employee touching her photograph, and guess what, nothing practical she could do about it. I don't know if there is an elaborate and hairy process of chasing this, but it's probably not worth the effort, ...

Yes, EU citizens are foreigners. The Czech regulations now only allow Czech citizens, foreigners with temporary residence over 90 days and permanent residents to enter the country. Graphics by the Ministry of the Interior of CR Details can be found in this document. From midnight from Sunday to Monday, the ban to entry is extended to all foreigners, ...

Generally, yes, you can use this visa without your husband, but you should be aware of some technical quirks. The most significant of these is that you are not subject to the 90/180 rule when you are traveling with your husband (or to join him). However, time spent in the Schengen area with him does count when you are figuring days of presence for a visit ...

The samenlevingscontract is indeed the evidence of your relationship. If you want additional evidence, the most useful thing would be anything that ties his residence card to you. If the card itself mentions your name, great. If not, a copy of the application materials showing that you are the EU citizen on whom the application was based should serve that ...

It has happened to me in the past, so it is not a big issue. Here is what you should do: Initiate the process for a new passport via the embassy now, 2 months is more than enough for a new passport According to the Greek embassy you can travel back with an expired passport, but you need to talk to IATA. If you do not have your passport then they can issue ...

I would like to respectfully suggest that you change your approach. You write: the authorities must give me every chance to get one within a reasonable time limit or produce other satisfactory evidence of your identity and citizenship... Later, you say: ...it is not my fault and I should deserve a compensation as I am gonna miss the flight and have ...

Your short-stay Schengen visa (C-Visa) allows you to stay in the Schengen Area based on the 90/180 days rule and will be checked upon entry and exit of the Schengen Area. Entry could be refused should they determine that you have overstayed. A National visa (D-Visa) for a specific country (such as Italy) would be needed to stay longer. Under what ...

Can I leave for a period of time (let's say one month) and then have the right to re-enter and stay another month (or three months if needed)? Basically, the answer is yes. As you may be aware, this is controlled by Directive 2004/38/EC There's not a whole lot of clarity about this because it's simply not enforced very regularly. In fact, an EU citizen ...

It's not certain that if the OP starts the procedure now, he will have a passport before his travel to Greece. The Greek embassies in Europe urge Greeks to go back home in order to renew their passport due to the long waiting times (reference: personal experience). And a fast procedure only exists for serious reasons like health problems. The only loophole ...

Mine was due to run out on March 2020, I went to the post office a week ago and paid £90.40 for the renewal, it arrived yesterday 30th October 2019, the words European Union had gone but it was still in Burgandy not Blue, they’re using old stock until the beginning of the year.

It depends if the training course instructors are required to be accredited or not. It also depends on the duration of the course. Since it's only a week you should be okay, but you need to verify directly with the flight instructors, to make sure they do not sponsor student visas. For instance, according to the visa requirements section for "Advanced ...

All publicly made statements, from both sides, have made it clear that no change for short stays, in the form of visas, is considered desirable. The Citizens’ Rights and transition portions of the Withdrawal Agreement reflect only the area of long term stays and not short term stays. The Political declaration setting out the framework for the future ...

Yes, you can use an EEA family permit for a short trip. My best evidence in support of this assertion is that my mother-in-law has done it. In the free movement directive, there is a "right of residence for up to three months" which does not require anyone to be a "qualified person" (i.e., working, studying, or having demonstrated self-sufficience): this ...

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do, and this type of situation happens often with disreputable travel sites, as well as some better known ones at times. They get "great deals" because they help in filling up the hotel rooms, but sometimes their systems are not accurate, and it causes huge problems. Ive heard of similar situations with car rental ...

The Cuba sanctions are under 31 CFR § 515 and the relevant part is: 31 CFR § 515.560 - Travel-related transactions to, from, and within Cuba by persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction Well, are you subject to U.S. jurisdiction? 31 CFR § 515.329 - Person subject to the jurisdiction of the United States; person subject to U.S. jurisdiction.

When my passport expired it took them 2 weeks to renew it for me (I'm from an EU country and renewed it in UK). Even then, you have like 2 months before. You can also pay a bit more and get it done faster. Not much more you can do.

Free movement also covers short-term travel, so your being in France is sufficient for this trip to constitute "joining" you. But unless your family relationship falls under the free movement directive, your relative will need a standard Schengen visa with the application requiring the larger set of supporting documents. If you don't live together, it is ...

During a police traffic control, as in all countries, you must have the documentation required by the local law. In most cases this will be a valid driver's licence and papers for the car. For a foreign lincense some countries (and some US States) require a IDP (international drivers permit/license). Depending on the situation, a police officer could also ...

To answer another part of your question (and comments) that doesn't seem to have been addressed directly: there is a clear difference between being an EU citizen and having residence. In fact, in normal times, your right to enter another EU country for a short-term visit is stronger than your right to take up residence in the same country. After some time, ...

I have read the decision a couple of times, although not very closely, and I do not think that it eliminates the possibility for border officers to seek to establish that the bearer of an Article 20 card (or an Article 10 card, for that matter) is traveling with or to join the EU family member. That condition is more fundamental: it is established in Article ...

I think we have to expect more incomplete and poorly translated information bulletins during the next weeks. If we look into the wording, as the regulation is currently published by the Polish Government, the exception applies to: • persons who have the right of permanent or temporary residence in the Republic of Poland or a work permit A 'residence ...

If you have a EU passport you are anyway still allowed to freely enter the UK. If you are transiting through London on a true connection (ie. both flights on one ticket) at the same airport you do not need to enter the UK. You will make an airside transit in stead.

In the US, police are state or local officials, not national officials (with rare exceptions, such as on military bases). Their main concern is enforcing state laws and local ordinances, not enforcing immigration rules. I don't think I've ever read the phrase "police traffic control" before. Police do occasionally set up checkpoints where they stop each car ...
