You always purchase duty free as you are departing a country, not after you arrive in a country. Duty-free items are sold for immediate export from the country. In the US, you generally select your purchases and they are delivered to you at the gate when you board your flight departing the US.

The conversion charges will only be applied when loading money, not while using it. ATM withdrawal costs $4 per transaction.

If you have the booking number (and of course his name), you may be able to use the “manage my booking” section of the website to see his status. If the flight has departed without him, some airlines will actually show him as “no show” on the relevant flight. Or you may see him having been rebooked to another flight. If you have his passport number (and ...

It makes the most sense to plan to go to the airport to pick him up. If you don't hear anything, it is more likely that it means he can't call you because he is on the next flight - maybe he had to rush to catch it or whatever and didn't have time in the airport to call. If he misses the flight, he will have plenty of time in the airport to figure out the ...

There won't be a way to contact anybody at LAX to see if your boyfriend made it through immigration. In my opinion, the best thing to do is to drive the 40 minutes to the airport under the assumption that everything is fine. If he arrives, great. If not, then you will be in the best place to try to find out where he is - you will be able to talk to the ...

Typically, to apply for a visa for country C from within country B while being a national of country A, all one has to show to C’s embassy in B is proof of lawfully being in B. Thus, as you are legally (temporarily) residing in Australia on an Australian student visa, you can apply for whichever visas you need from within Australia at the embassies these ...

There's no reason to mention self employed, you can just put "Painter" as the job title. What CBP would mainly want to know, if at all, is if your boyfriend intends to work while in the USA or if he intends to overstay his visa. To help strengthen his case, have proof of a return ticket to provide them with. That can help show intent in case your boyfriend ...

Air travel: Without correct papers, you will not be flying today. Land travel: Canada will let you in with a smile, because your state driver's license is good enough for them. USA Immigration has an interesting problem. First, you are a US citizen so you have the irrefutable right to enter the United States. But second, US law requires you have ...

Yes. I've got Nexus, which is is Canada specific, but is a superset of Global Entry and I was given a warning when I didn't have the exact dollar amount of the goods that I was bringing into the country ready on hand with the receipts(I just knew they were below that duty free limit) and told that my Nexus would be revoked next time. The explanation was: ...

Looking at the reasons for ineligibility they list on their website, I think there are 2 items that may fit the case you describe. I would assume that you can become ineligible at any time, not just during the application process. Provide false or incomplete information on the application; Have been convicted of any criminal offense or have pending ...

See the Global Entry Information Guide. "If you violate any condition of Global Entry or any law or regulation of the U.S., officers may:" is followed by a list of possible penalties beginning with "Revoke your Global Entry privileges". The remaining penalties would also apply to a non-GE traveler. It also calls out specifically "You must declare any ...

Yes. When you go for your interview for Global Entry, you are explicitly told that you will be held to a higher standard and will be held responsible for "novice traveler mistakes," since in exchange for not having as much direct inspection to ensure that you follow the rules, you have to know how to and agree to follow them yourself.

Let's be clear about the laws: OP's question tilts on whether the "bright line" is the US border, or the CBP immigration desk. You can't bring them into the United States US law 7 USC 7712 gives the Secretary of Agriculture (a)broad authority to "prohibit or restrict the importation, entry," etc. "of any plant"... and (c) issue regulations to implement ...

It will depend on the exact border post. In airports you're likely to have a bin somewhere between the plane and passport control. When taking the bus you might not have a big enough bin until you're past immigration. However at the end of the day it doesn't matter in the slightest. If you have some fruit with you, simply mark yes on the customs form and ...

Anything, such as fruit, vegetables, flowers is taken off the plane they must be declared on the Customs Declaration form So the last point to throw anything away (abandon) is the plane, when indicating “not bringing any fruit” on the US customs form. Customs is the last place where forbidden items, such as fruit, vegetables, flowers etc., which may ...

Retain proof of your flight to and from Spain boarding card and ticket which would show that you returned to Spain and again came back. Do you have any reference indicating whether this is enough? The Schengen Borders Code should also cover this scenario which mainly refers to those who lack an entry/exit stamp In this scenario, your are returning/...

You should never lie and always cooperate by giving all relevant documents and information (and an overstay is a relevant piece of information). I left Spain quickly and voluntary What did the Spanish say when you left did they notice the overstay? For important matters, information is exchanged between the countries. Telling them the worst, ...
