Just go to the nearest US embassy or consulate on a working day (i.e. Monday to Friday, not the 25th of December, not January 1st) with the police declaration/report and evidence of your flight date. They should be able to issue a temporary emergency passport the same day or the next business day. Appointments are usually not required for emergency ...

I've had this happen to me back in 2016. It was my first time traveling overseas as a photographer and I was stranded in London (my credit card got sucked up by the ATM at one of the train stations, my only one, so I was left without money.) Basically, with the little bit of money I had left in my pockets, I made my way to the US Embassy. I walked up to ...

The airline will not let you board without a valid passport, you will need to wait until you can get either a new passport or an emergency temporary passport to travel home. Emergancy passports can be given by your embassy or consulate just as your normal passport but much faster.

As a rule, immigration cares only about the country you're in, what you do afterwards and whether you can enter the next country is not really their problem. You might get a nice officer who tells you if they have concerns if they notice something, but they have zero legal obligation to do so and you really can't count on it. It's highly unlikely they ...

There's no "simplified process" to obtain a new visa with your other nationality. It's the same process you went through before and requires the same full visa fee to be paid. You can either do that, or you can renew your passport for your original nationality, for which you already hold the US visa. You then show both passports (from the same country) when ...

Do immigration officers care when leaving to a country you are obviously not allowed to visit? Typically no, but that's probably not universal and they are likely some exceptions to the rule. Any exception would be likely at a land border since enforcement at ports or airports are handled by the airlines or cruise ship lines and most governments put hefty ...

This happened to my boyfriend while we were in Egypt. Unfortunatley, they won't let you board - you must have a passport. He is a EU citizen, and was able to get an emergency one in about two or three days. You should be calling the Embassy as soon as it re-opens. I just read that on holidays the US Embassies are only open for life and death situations, so ...

You can make the trip as long as you return to Spain while your passport is still valid. There is no extra passport validity requirement for internal Schengen travel. To avoid complications, you should probably avoid itineraries that require a layover outside the Schengen area. The Schengen area has a requirement for short-term visitors that passports be ...

The old expired passport is one of the documents you will need (in addition to proof of address, Non-ECR proof if applicable, and possibly other documents) in order to apply for reissue of your passport. India normally returns the expired passports after your reissue is processed, so it's expected that you would have expired passports in your possession. ...

No. As a British citizen, you require a passport to travel outside the UK & Ireland. You will not be allowed to board the ferry without a passport, and if you somehow make it to France, you won't be allowed out of the port without a passport. For example, here is what Brittany Ferries says: You must have a valid and in-date passport or national ...

From the UAE government: Indian citizens holding a normal passport and either a visit visa issued by the USA or a green card issued by the USA or a residence visa issued by the UK or a residence visa issued by the EU can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 14 days provided that the visas or the green card is valid for at ...

Immigration of a country would not know all other countries rules, for potentially everyone from any other country - a huge complexity, and ever changing. They do not care. For flying: If you cannot travel to a specific country with your passport/visa/documentation (without getting a visa/waiver/etc. first), the airline is responsible to not let you board. ...

They asked me that question. After I said he is waiting for me outside they sent me for secondary inspection. Once I went in the private room (without a female officer) I was questioned strictly about my marriage. “Are y’all in an open marriage” “How much older is your husband” “Just trying to figure out why you would be traveling alone” “is this an arranged ...
