It is a requirement of the Schengen visa that you apply to the country that is your main destination. Your friend has already broken the rules by applying to France when he wants to visit Norway. You are also required to state your travel plans in the application, which your friend did not do. French authorities are already aware of your friend's desire to ...

It’s clearly not possible. Fare gates are equipped with only two readers: one for paper tickets which have a magnetic stripe one for contactless passes using NFC-like technology. For the first type of tickets, there’s no choice but a physical paper ticket bought from a machine or from a sales window. For the second type, you currently need a Navigo ...

You will only be deported to a country that the deporters know will accept you. This will be the country you came from only if they know that you have permission to return there. You may sometimes ask to be deported to a specific country If You can demonstrate you have permission to enter, but in case of any doubt most countries will deport you to your ...

I've taken taxis from the Basel EuroAirport (which is in France) from both the French side and the Swiss side of the airport to my home in Germany. The French taxis drive straight east across France into Germany. The Swiss taxis go south through Basel, then back north again to Germany, which means a longer and more expensive ride, as if the Swiss taxi ...

Where do I have to get the passport stamped? Madrid or Geneva? Your passport will be stamped in Madrid. And will I have any problems with the fact that the stamp will be a Spanish or Swiss one? No. Will French immigration give me headaches with that? No. Does it have to be a French stamp? No.

I have just found someone asking exactly the same question back in 2016: Q: If arriving at CDG airport with family, heading for Gare du Nord, is it possible to buy RER single-trip tickets in advance to save delays and currency problems at the airport? A: Only multi-use Paris Metro/RER passes can be purchased online ahead of time. Single use RER ...

I think it means your passport has been sent to the VFS office in Montreal. If you live in Montreal, you can pick it up. But if you are not, they still need to mail it to your local VFS office. The VFS staff said they'll send a message to notify the applicant for passport collection. But I read online that many applicants don't receive the message. I guess ...

If you have your passport, you can apply for the Schengen visa at any time in the three months leading up to your travel. But the application will be stronger if you wait until you have the study visa. If you apply before you have the study visa, you'll need to convince the consulate that you don't have a plan B of "go to Paris, stay there illegally and ...

I think these answers are missing the most important benefit: savings of time and flexibility with respect to time. If you have a business premiere ticket, there’s a special ticketing queue and it’s open up to 10 minutes before departure.

You won't find repair shops specialized in strollers and I can't imagine that the employees in a baby/children shop are able to help you on the spot. If you return a defective stroller, they would either replace it or have to return it to the manufacturer for repair. That is not an option if you need a quick fix. Your easiest option is probably to buy a new ...

You could try to find a Repair Cafe. There appears to be one in Nîmes (https://repaircafe.org/fr/location/repair-cafe-de-nimes), but their website doesn't look entirely up to date.

This depends obviously on your route. You should be ok in France, Netherlands and Germany. In Denmark you need to get to Zealand, which is an island. You can take either the Puttgarden/Rodby ferry from Germany or go the long way around over the Storebælt bridge. The bridge is cheaper but also a considerable detour. Cost depends on vehicle and number of ...

As far as I know, there is no airside transfer between Terminal 3 and any other terminal (Terminal 3 is the low cost terminal for charter flights and very low cost carriers — even EasyJet don’t use it). You will have to deplane, go through immigration, reclaim your bags, go through customs, transfer to Terminal 3 (a bit of a walk + CDGVAL + more walk) and ...

Old question but I see it linked a lot so I'm going to add some information I believe is pertinent. I received the following email from the Austrian BMI regarding entering visa-fee before a Visa D is valid. Keep in mind this is a translation from the original email in german: "If the visa-free stay is short or the travel purpose for the visa-free stay is ...

While most advice on the internet is that only the US Consulates can notarize, I took #missvea's advice and asked a "notaire" to "certify" my signature. The stamps & process are nearly identical to the notary process in the US. Honestly, it looks just like a US notarization. And there is law (Hague Convention?) that states that the US must recognize ...
