My second ESTA application was denied as well. I did not state it here before but I've been to Iran in 2014 for a week. I just found out that anyone who has been in Iran, Somalia, Yemen etc. after 2001 or 2011 has to apply for a Tourist visa from the embassy.

If you're making a day trip to the UK and then back to the place you arrived from, then you're not in transit, and a transit visa wouldn't do you any good. You'd need a Standard Visitor Visa, which must be applied for in advance. The 8 days you have until you leave will probably not be enough for this application to be completed unless you pay for super-...

The simple answer is that there is nothing you can do to expedite your application. Historically many ESTA applications were approved (near) instantly, however as of late 2018 most now take at least a few days to be approved, although there have been occasional reports of them taking less. The official ESTA application sites also makes this very clear ...

Transit visas are for entering a country where the only purpose – or, at least, the main purpose – is to connect to transport to a third country. Your purpose for visiting the UK is purely tourism: you want to spend a few hours visiting and then return to the country you came from. You can't do that on a transit visa: you need a ...

No, there are no exceptions. If you need a visa for the US, and you don't have one, you will not be allowed on the plane or into the country. Your best bet is to contact the airline to see if they can arrange an alternative routing that does not go via the US, or at least refund some of the ticket costs.

The Irish Department of Justice and Equality provides a page where you can check the requirements.

This is unfortunately not possible. The US does not issue visas on arrival, and the airline most likely won't let you board the plane without one. Peru is also not a VWP country so you won't be able to use an ESTA instead of a visa. Given how soon your flight is, you won't be able to get a visa in time so the only option is to change your flight. Edit: as ...

Citizens and permanent residents of Canada don't need a visa to enter Canada.

Turkey's transit visa policy is covered here:...

Since the UK doesn't operate exit checks you can just buy a ticket and fly home. Airlines give passport information about their passengers to the authorities in advance, but the UK's main interest at this point will be to see you gone, so they have no interest in trying to stop you from leaving. Do not expect to be let back in anytime soon (no matter how you ...

The airline is perfectly capable of telling you whether a visa is needed in this scenario; they have a shared database called Timatic which is used for this purpose, and they use it to verify your documents when you check in for your flight. It's not clear why they refused to tell you over the phone, but I can make some uncharitable guesses. Anyway, ...

It's good that you already found the official information by the German government, but it is better to look up visa requirements in the software Timatic, because that's what the airline will use to decide whether they let you board or not, and it also gives you the most up-to-date information. I like the interfaces provided by Emirates and Olympic Air, ...

This itinerary requires a regular Schengen short stay visa, not just a transit visa. It would require you to enter the Schengen area at Lisbon, take an internal flight to Vienna, and then exit the Schengen area.
