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 ...

Yes, your residence card (Aufenthaltstitel) allows you to travel within Germany, but does not allow you to cross the national border. You are, however, required to show and/or hand out your passport and/or residence permit to an authorized official such as police and customs officer government employees, such as foreigners and registration officials upon ...

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.

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).

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 ...

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 ...

Nobody can get an "eVisa [...] on arrival". eVisa's are issued in advance via the website at Turkish e-Visa Website. Turkey does also issue normal visas on arrival, but they are generally more expensive and higher risk, so e-visas are generally better. The best way to tell if you are eligible for an eVisa is to visit that site and attempt to apply for one. ...

Your nationality does not exempt you from the UK visitor visa requirement. To visit the UK without a visa based on your German residence, the following things must be true: You have a German residence card issued because you live in Germany with a family member who is an EU citizen or a national of an EEA country or Switzerland. The German residence card ...

You are operating under a couple of misconceptions. As an Australian citizen I am granted an extra 90 days in Germany ON TOP of my Schengen travel, as long as that stay is at the end of my journey. ...and... I have spent 22 days on the Schengen Clock, which 'paused' when I entered Germany due to the bilateral agreement. No. Bilateral agreements ...

You’re safe without the passport on domestic flights in Germany. As a Norwegian citizen living in Germany for over 30 years, I have never had to show my passport on a domestic flight.

Residents of the European Union are not eligible for VAT tax refunds when taking goods outside the European Union. Since you are not a visitor (i.e. no entry stamp based on the 90/180 days rule), but a resident (you have a residence permit), customs will see that you are not eligible after a quick look at your passport. You should, however, look into the ...

Caveat: IANAL so I may be misinterpreting things and getting things wrong where we enter legal territory. As a legal resident of an EU member state you appear to have two sets of rights: one that derives from your status as the spouse of an EU national, which allows you to exercise full Freedom of Movement rights when travelling with your spouse and one ...

It's not entirely clear from your question, at least not to me, precisely which documents you now have and where exactly they are. It sounds like you have a valid EEA family permit and you want to know if you can use that to travel to the UK to join your wife who is already in the UK, and the answer to that question is yes. An EEA family permit may be used ...

Very difficult case (also because it is not clear what was the problem). For next time, I would check job in Indonesia, to see what you can get, and so to have realistic expectation (which you can explain to the officer). Having some documents about your PhD. Is it a monograph or a series of published articles? Get some documents to show you are in good ...
