What Qatar requires for entry has zero relevance in this, as you're not entering that country. As stated in TIMATIC, the database used at check-in, Australia only requires a valid passport for any and all passenger categories. As such, you can do this trip with no problems.

As such, if your trip is in a single booking, you're OK. From TIMATIC: Visa required, except for Passengers transiting through Tokyo (HND) or Osaka (KIX) with a confirmed ...

The Government of Japan will be extending its entry ban to the U.S.; any foreign citizen except for permanent residents will be refused entry if they have traveled to the U.S. in the past 14 days. The ban will likely be in effect in just a few days, so there's a very good chance that you won't be able to make the transit. If you stay airside, I am not sure, ...

Luggage or not, you're unlikely to get on the plane to Istanbul. Luggage is one aspect; the second one is that, if your connection goes awry for whatever reason, you're not "insured" and will be stuck in Istanbul. Unless you pay for a new onward ticket, Saudia would then have to return you to Saudi, a situation they want to avoid at all costs. This is why ...

The Deutschlandfunk news today talked about the recovery flights and mentioned that smaller Pacific islands were difficult, so they were going to stage the recovery through New Zealand. At a wild guess, the flight(s) would carry Germans stuck in NZ, too.

That's one of the standard reasons for refusals provided in the Schengen Visa Code and other official documents. In general, it means that the consulate is not convinced you have a valid ...

Not a chance! IIRC domestic arrivals exit landside and re-enter airside through passport and security control, which won't be that quick. You should not book this on separate reservations. In fact the minimum connection time domestic-international at IST is 90 minutes.

I posted the question and have since heard from the Japanese Immigration Bureau: the answer is no, if you've been convicted of a felony you cannot land in Japan or transit through it.

As noted in the linked duplicate question, your visa for Canada exempts you from the requirement to hold a transit visa. However, you cannot leave the international zone of the airport unless you hold a regular (type C) Schengen visit visa.

As an Indian citizen, you are exempted Schengen airport transit visa (ATV) due to your US and Canada visas. To enter the Schengen Area (i.e. leave the Airport) you would need a regular Schengen C-Visa. Since passenger data, on flights to Canada, is shared with the US when flying through US airspace and the full details of how these restrictions will be ...

2.5 hours is pretty tight for a separate connection, but you ought to be able to do it if your inbound flght isn't significantly late. After you claim your baggage in the domestic terminal, follow the signs for the International Shuttle Connector. This free shuttle runs between the domestic and international terminals at ATL and takes about 15 minutes. ...
