You misunderstand. There is an international transit zone at Milan. That was not your problem. Your problem was that you had a flight from Milan to Rome. That is a domestic flight, and you must enter the Schengen area to board it. You do not leave the Schengen area until after you arrive at Rome, where you need to go through exit controls before you can ...

The cause of your problem is that your route included an internal Schengen flight. This has nothing to do with there being (or not) a transit area in Linate. It is because of your Milan to Rome flight that you needed a visa, not to change planes in Milan. Airports in the Schengen area are divided in two zones. Schengen, and non-Schengen. A flight from ...

Transit is usually if you're not entering a country, to go onwards to another one. For international flights. Flying between two cities in Italy would be a domestic flight, and you'd need to be allowed into the country (ie have an appropriate visa). Like Almaty to Astana - everyone on the flight is legally allowed to be in the country, because at Astana (or ...

According to a DHS press release from 2 August 2003 announcing the suspension of the TWOV and ITI programs effective on that date: The Transit Without Visa program has been in use in the United States since 1952. It applies to passengers who normally would be required to obtain a visa to travel to the United States. Under the TWOV program, passengers ...

In case you miss the connection in SYD through no fault of your own, Qantas (I assume it's Qantas based on your itinerary) will rebook you on the next available itinerary to get you to Manila, but that is not required to be a nonstop flight. For instance the rebooked flight may be SYD-SIN-MNL or SYD-HKG-MNL or any number of other itineraries, each of which ...

PEK is working overload this year, meaning there is a lot of congestion at PEK. Assuming that the prices are similar, I would choose PVG as the lines are much shorter. If flying into PKX (Beijing Daxing International Airport) is an option, then PKX would be the best option as you would have less walking to do between transfers and since it is newer, you get ...

I don’t see any chance for a refund. It’s a passenger's responsibility to have all needed visas for a journey and you do need a Schengen visa for a Milan-Rome leg which is a domestic flight, and thus, you would have entered the Schengen zone.

The flight from Kolkata (in India) to Paro (in Bhutan) is an international flight, as it travels from one country to another country. That an Indian citizen can travel to Bhutan without a visa does not make the flight non-international. If international passengers are refused entry at their destination, the airline is required to return the refused-entry ...

PTY is an extremely simple airport for transit. There's no separation of departing and arriving passengers, so you literally go directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate. As long as you don't go downstairs to immigration you won't even see them. Just get off the first plane, check a departure board for your gate number, and go directly to it. I ...

No. Spain and Switzerland are both in the Schengen area. Your Swiss visa permits you to enter the Schengen area, anywhere. You will do that in Spain.

Unlike at most international airports, transit passport control is performed by border police in Athens. However, passports are not stamped and visas don't get "activated" at this point, so provided your trip is on a single ticket, you can do this trip.

You are not only allowed to fly this route, it is mandatory that you do so. In order to use the Irish Short Stay Visa Waiver, you must first clear immigration in the UK, then travel to Ireland. You cannot take a flight directly to Ireland without going through the UK first. This doesn't apply to exiting; you can exit via whichever country you wish.

No, the Schengen Visa is for the Schengen Area. You will enter the Schengen Area in Germany and then take an internal flight to Finnland. Make sure that the Visa is valid when you enter/exit the Schengen Area. The day you enter and the day of exit count for the 90/180 days rule.

Your link from the Chinese embassy is not really relevant as it only mentions transit in one city without leaving the airport, which does not apply in your case. However, China does allow 24-hour visa-free transit for most people even if travelling through multiple Chinese airports. The exact rules according to Timatic are Passengers with a confirmed ...

YES, separate itineraries require a fresh check-in of baggage on international flight and most domestic flight. If your flights are on two separate itineraries, they are separate tickets. If they are on the same itinerary, here are some clues to confirm: Contact the first (or each) airline and ask them if the luggage will automatically transfer to the ...

Visit the green Transit Tour desk when you arrive at ICN for more details or to book a tour. Timatic, the database which airlines use to ...
