It's not clear from the French government site how critical it would be for you to have your passport if your identity is checked by the police. As a foreigner, you will be obliged to present evidence that your presence in France is lawful, for which the permesso di soggiorno should suffice, but technically, it seems, that a passport is nonetheless required....

You cannot fly back to the US with your naturalisation certificate. The only solution is getting an emergency passport at the US embassy in Madrid.

You dont need to pay for the ticket, When I applied for the Netherlands visa, I submitted the screenshot of the Summary page(before checkout) of Etihad airways. My one friend of mine submitted the Turkish air line booked ticket, I think they give you the option to hold your ticket without charging you. In the checklist document also mention that you will ...

This depends on the type of cruise. In particular for the port of St. Petersburg, passengers of cruise ships are not required to have an entry visa into Russia for up to 72 hours, but only in case they have officially booked tours with licensed tour providers. Therefore, the validity of passport is not important. information on visa-free entry in Russia ...

Assuming you're not an EU/EFTA citizen or resident: For Scandinavia, the passport needs to be valid for 3 months beyond the period of intended stay (in the Schengen Area) For Russia, the passport just needs to be valid during the stay. So no, contrary to the other answer, no need to renew your passport.

When you apply for an ESTA (or for a visa, for that matter), you are supposed to answer all the questions honestly, and as accurately as you can. I’m pretty sure there’s actually some text in the form that says that. If you omit things they asked for, they may or may not catch you, but if they do, they most definitely won’t like it, and the consequences ...

Most countries in Europe (Schengen specifically) require that your passport be valid for at least 6 months before entry. However, this is NOT the case with the UK. They just require that your passport be valid for the entire duration of your stay. However, when entering Scandinavia, you’ll need at least 6 months validity, so yes you will need to renew it.

Because the programme doesn't require presence at campus at any point, you don't need an F-1 visa, but can enter on a B visa (or visa-free if a VWP national) However, it is highly likely CBP (border control) officers won't get this nuance, so I highly recommend you to: Get a signed/stamped letter from the school explaining your exact situation, ...

E-visa isn't valid for trains, unfortunately. Official reason - no mobile scanners available, as the border check is done right on the train. Which doesn't make a lot of sense, as basically the same system was operational during the FIFA World Cup 2018. There are plenty of bus options available. And even a unique option to cross the border on foot. :-D ...

Would it be hard for a girl to pass Ireland immigration who is travelling alone from HK? Not usually. Would it be hard for a girl to pass Ireland immigration who is travelling alone from HK (when you are obviously using it as a means to avoid UK immigration hassles)? Yes. The problem is not your gender or where you are from, but the fact you are ...

I agree with the existing answers, but wanted to raise a subtle issue that you may be able to adjust to improve your chances. In the title, you call yourself a "girl" rather than a "woman". During your previous entry at Belfast the immigration officer ended up talking about you with your boyfriend, rather than talking with you directly, and you let your ...

No, you cannot enter Kaliningrad by train, as the only operational railway checkpoint (Chernyshevskoye) is not listed as an approved port of entry. RZD has no say in this, and so no authority to allow or prohibit it. So you need to enter by air or bus/car

Instead of taking a risk at the border, you may want to consider asking for a UK visa. If you get rejected at the border, this will mean lost money (the cost of the ticket and any other non-refundable reservations you may have made), a stain on your record, a lot of hassle and trouble (as you noticed last time, it can be quite stressful when they start ...

Bring hard copies of any and all evidence of ties to HK (in a soft binder) to present at Dublin/Belfast airport if asked, and never lie about anything. Signed/stamped employment/school letter with contact details, utility bills, proof of family ties, proof of income, bank statements, return ticket, notarised invitation letter from your boyfriend etc. ...

Hopefully the car rental companies mean IDP or translation, because both should certainly not be required. An International Driving Permit is not a translation in the linguistic sense. It is a document that certifies that the holder has a driving licence valid for one or more specified classes of vehicles. Unfortunately there is no organisation authorised ...

IDPs are issued by countries (or their in-country agents) that have adopted one or more of the several international Conventions on Road Traffic. (You can read more about the Conventions and IDPs in this Wikipedia article.) These conventions are international treaties between countries. Translation isn't an issue: an IDP itself is and serves as a ...

Lost my tourist card. Took bus from Puerto Mares to border. Was told I was in trouble. My Chilean guide was in tears with worry. At the border my passport was scanned and stamped and I went through. No one cares about the card.

TIMATIC always says "Visa required, except...". Since you have a visa, if it's unexpired (it usually lasts 30 days), you can board the plane and re-enter the UK.


5

Nope, not a problem. You can re-enter the US anytime until the visa expires. Though irrelevant in your case, if only travelling to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days, you can even return on an expired visa. Once your visa expires, it is only next time you travel abroad (other than to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days) that you need to get a new one. In that case, ...

Per the Nordic Passport Union, Nordic citizens enjoy full right of abode in each other's countries (incl. the Faroes and Greenland), are immune from deportation, and aren't even legally required to carry proof of citizenship for internal travel. This is flawed these days, stemming from a time when our countries were ethnically homogenous and it was obvious ...

There has in fact been no clear answer about your case. As far as Iran is concerned, you are indeed an Iranian national by descent. However, the US vaguely states they assess nationality "in accordance with U.S. legal standards and practices, not merely by reference to the laws and practices of foreign governments". US principles include the right to self-...

Based on your question, it seems these are separate bookings. Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: Visa required, except for Passengers with a passport and a confirmed onward ticket to a third country within 72 hours can obtain a Shore Pass on arrival if there are no connecting flights on the same calendar day For logical reasons, I suspect ...

You can show a new passport and the visa in the old passport - that's OK both with the Schengen countries and the US: Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: For the US: A passenger may enter the USA with a valid visa in an expired passport, if also holding a valid passport of the same nationality For the Netherlands (same rules throughout ...

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Visa required, except for Passengers transiting through Seoul (ICN) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 24 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination. So no, ...
