It's been a long time since I used an InterRail pass, but in practice, the basic assumption is that your country of citizenship is your country of residence. If you think about it, there's no other feasible option: if Lukasz shows up in Germany and buys an IR pass with his Polish passport, there's no possible way for the DB ticket office, or any DB ticket ...

Nepalese citizens require a visa to visit the UK. Having a residence permit from another EU/EEC country does not free you from any UK visitor visa requirements. A residence permit from an EU/EEC country may free you from transit visa requirements. I would however assume that a EU residence permit will ease the application process and make it more probable ...

As you live and work in Germany (I assume you're in Germany for more than 180 days/year) you cannot use the InterRail pass in Germany. Claiming to reside in Poland while you actually live in Germany would be a fraud. Take your proof of residence (Meldebescheinigung) with you on the trip to prove your current adress (if asked by a conductor). It should be ...

Technical note: Nationals of country B are not issued a 90-day visa upon entry to the Schengen area; rather, they are allowed to enter without a visa. That means that country B is an "Annex II" country. When you leave the Schengen area with your Annex II passport, the border guard will probably notice the lack of an entry stamp and consider whether to ...

What are the procedures to apply for a travel visa? You would need to apply for a regular tourist visa at the nearest Irish consulate.

Citizens of certain countries may visit ...

The German Aufenthaltstitel is a residence permit for the purpose of the Schengen codes (and probably for every other purpose). As such, it allows you to travel to other Schengen countries. See, for example, Travel documents for non-EU nationals: If you have a valid residence permit from one of those Schengen countries, it is equivalent to a visa. You ...

It is perfectly possible. My friend from India entered Europe through Paris even though he was a student in Germany. As your visa is student national visa, it allows multiple entries into the Schengen area and you are perfectly fine. But it is always safe to have a ticket from Sweden to Germany if you have already booked it.

Assuming we're talking about visiting the UK and not settling in the UK... Yes, ultimately your non-EEA spouse will need a visa of some sort... UNLESS she is a non-visa national.

First let's take a look at the reasons for your refusal... You correctly stated that you are a student, however your studies end soon and no explanation is given on your future plans. Therefore your occupation is unclear. You have provided a bank statement with a large enough sum, however unexplained deposits of large sums were recently made, which casts ...

The consulate answer is correct. There is a special visa for medial treatment: 5- OTHER VISAS ... d) Medical Treatment Purposes Thus indeed it would be illegal under Turkish law.

Germany and France are both in the Schengen area. If you have a long-stay visa (or residence permit) that lets you travel to Germany, you can also use that visa to enter or leave the Schengen area in Paris on your way to/from Germany. In general such a visa also lets you visit the other Schengen countries on the same conditions as visa-free nationals.

No, your residence card and passport are not sufficient. Neither is an EEA family permit, which anyway you won't be granted because you are traveling without your spouse.

I made a comment earlier which implied that you will not be able to drive on your national license as a visitor in Oman. My comment was based on this statement on the IDP website All visitors who plan to drive in Oman must make sure they obtain an IDP in their home country or country of residence before they travel. However, after some research it ...

The UK is not part of the Schengen-zone, but part of the Common Travel Area. To enter the latter you might need to get a visa, depending on your nationality. You will probably need to obtain a General Visitor visa. You can check if you need a visa, and what type you need on the government's visa checker site.

If this is for a trip in 3 months and you’ve already been denied, I would do my best to try to get either a refund, reschedule your trip for a year in the future, or change to another destination country. In other words, you’re not coming to the USA this year. There’s no appeal process for the current application (except for situations where there was a ...

For anyone interested, my electronic residence permit was enough for this trip (considering I was staying at the first port of entry for a period of less than 24 hours).

Under the circumstances, yes, as it is asking for confirmation of legal residence, if you are not a national of the country in which you are applying. However, if your right to reside there is included in your passport, e.g., long term visa, then it should not be necessary to include your Blue Card.

Let me answer my question. I was granted a visa and was travelling to South Korea. The officer did not ask specifically about the validity of my German residence permit but was focussing on my bank account and was asking whether I have been living in Germany for more than 2 years (because this is one of the requirements for Indonesian citizens who want to ...

Can I fly from another EU country to the US? Of course. You can fly from any country to the US. Do not forget to list those countries in your customs declaration. I heard some issues from my colleague that, even if I am allowed to fly from another EU country, it will be a problem when I arrive at the US. Because the immigration officer will strictly ...

Exit and re-entry at the German border is no problem, as long as the passport is still valid (even on the last day). Note that you need a valid passport at all time while being inside Germany.

I'm not familiar with US procedures, but I believe that they want to confirm that you'll go back to Germany. If your German is good enough for the interview, that should be a big plus. It shows that you've put plenty of effort into fitting into German society. If you are now accepted as a student, and if you have already earned credit points towards your ...

As noted in the comments, under the Schengen Borders Code there is generally no border control between Schengen countries (Article 22), but police may perform "spot checks" nevertheless, in order "to combat cross-border crime" (Article 23). Furthermore, countries may temporarily reintroduce border controls on the internal borders (Chapter II, Articles 25 ...

If your residence permit says "Aufenthaltskarte für Familienangehörige eines Unionsbürgers" then you can travel without a visa as long as your wife accompanies you or is already in the UK when you enter. Otherwise, you should apply for an EEA family permit. This also has the condition that your wife accompany you or precede you to the UK. To visit the UK ...
