It heavily varies by place and even by person serving you. Despite their being legally acceptable PASS cards are rarely accepted. They’re unfamiliar to most people so if they doubt your age they won’t accept them. A Swiss national ID card would likely carry the same stigma. Its a fairly well known trick amongst kids to get fake foreign ID and put on an ...

No. Official ID documents have many features to prevent forgery or manipulation. They might also be officially invalidated when a new one is issued before the expiry date. A copy has none of those -- it might easily be photoshopped. The only use for a photocopy or digital scan is as a handy reference of all the relevant data, in case the original gets lost....

No, sorry about your misfortune, but use your passport. Lot of countries have an ID card, but you're British and you live in Britian, so you can't get one. There are alternative forms of ID for proving your age in the UK, like the "Proof of Age Standards Scheme", but I doubt those have any traction outside of the UK. Maybe you could use your shotgun ...

I spoke with Greyhound Customer service on June 21, 2019. A person without an official ID has one option, which is to pre-pay a ticket online. It has an $18.00 fee on top of the ticket price and is only available in the United States, but it may be your only option. She told me employees are not allowed to sell a ticket without an official ID, and the ...

No, it's not acceptable. Besides the police, what's the point? How are you travelling? Most airplanes, some trains, checking in hotels, renting a car: they all require some form of identification. For crossing borders too, and even for Schengen borders you might need some official ID. If you lose your credit card, you might use your ID for getting money ...

Did you already purchase your ticket online? Just go to the kiosk at the Greyhound station and enter the confirmation number. It will print out your ticket. Or log in to the Greyhound app on your phone. If you use the app, you need to check in with the app 2 hours before departure, and then just show the QR code to the driver. No ID required. Don't have a ...

According to the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, India, the Disability certificate issued by Government is a valid identification document for domestic flights. Reference: http://www.bcasindia.nic.in/law/AC%2015-2017-listofidproof.pdf

In some cases the airlines will not have any problem with the difference, in other cases they will not accept it. As soon as you notice the problem you should contact the airline you have bought the ticket for and ask them whether you need to do something and how to do so. In some cases it is not the airline but the airport who might stop you from going ...

In reality most places in the UK tend to be quite relaxed about the situation. Some countries like the USA are strict and you will be asked for ID almost every time if you are under 25 or 30 years old. But it does not occur so often in the UK in pubs and clubs (supermarkets are often stricter). But of course some places will be stricter than others. (I also ...

If the picture clearly looks like you and the card has your date of birth in an obvious format like 03/10/1995 (or 1995/10/03 although we are less used to the ISO standard in the UK) then you should be OK. Even 03 Okt 1995 although that may take some explanation. I suggest you say that you only have your Swiss document but it does have the date of birth and ...

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 ...

My understanding is that this is intended to cover citizens' IDs like those issued by some EU countries, so you don't need to enter your old green card. But it won't hurt anything if you do.

Even though you can enter many countries without a visa, you still have restrictions on how long you can stay. The current way of checking this is through the use of stamps in your passport. So if police want to check your status, a passport card will not be enough, as it doesn’t have the entry stamp. For this reason, a passport card is usually not ...

The purpose of American passport card confines entry into the United States by land or sea, confirmation of citizenship and identification. You can not expect all countries to accept it: especially those outside of Canada and Mexico and possibly some of the smaller countries near the USA for surface travel. Even within the USA passport books and passport ...

In general this should be possible. Some countries might have restrictions on the use of ID cards. For example, the US passport card is for use as a travel document only for land and sea travel to Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean. Such a country might not permit its citizens to use the ID card when arriving from certain countries. But most countries ...

I'm afraid that you almost certainly aren't eligible for the standard TfL student discount promotion, since it requires a) you live in London during term time and b) your University is pre-registered with TfL. It's just possible that you could benefit from the 16-25 railcard though (which is also available to mature students if you are outside that age ...

There is no EU resident/citizen database authorities could use to double-check your data and no EU-wide rule regulating this matter. As often, what the EU mandates is that other EU citizens are treated on a par with citizens. It's still up to the country to regulate police checks, registration and identification requirements as they like. Depending on the ...

I am an American citizen and have travelled to India a couple of times in the past. I have also flew internal flights - and used my American passport as the ID. Nobody ever asked me for anything else. Even though I had an Indian visa in my passport, nobody ever flipped the passport pages to check it. They simply looked at the photo page and waved me ...

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 ...

We can’t answer that without knowing your citizenship. Your Belgian residence permit is irrelevant, it does not give you the right to enter the UK if you need a visa by virtue of your nationality. You can use this tool https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa to find out. If you can enter the UK visa-free, you will need travel ID appropriate to your chosen ...

I lived in Las Vegas for about a year. I was never once checked for Id. Come to think about it I have never been checked for ID at any casino anywhere. Maybe I just look old.
