I can't answer precisely without knowing the full details of your journey and ticketing. Leaving station premises, even when changing trains, constitutes a break of journey*. Some tickets allow break of journey, and others don't. Advance tickets in particular (those that have to be bought in advance and are only valid on one particular train) don't allow a ...

The actual barriers might not open for you, (those in Bham New St never open when I change there, even when you have to go through them to go to your next platform, but Liverpool ones do), but if you show your ticket to an attendant they will open it for you to let you in/out, I've been doing it for years using TrainLine and never had an issue with it! If ...

You can as confirmed by an email from Trainline: I would like to inform you that whether you can break or not break the journey depends on the type of ticket you've booked. Anytime, Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak tickets are more flexible options, so breaking your journey is allowed, as long as you don’t start your journey before, or end it after, the two ...

All tickets allow break of journey for connectional purposes i.e. changing trains where necessary. If you have a waiting period in a station for your connecting train, you can pass through the barriers or leave the station during that time.

One liter is the limit, as all airport and most airline websites in the EU will tell you, as well as the TSA site, (although they use the American way of notation.) 10 bottles of 100 ml will take more space than one liter, even when you have very efficient square bottles that just fit the bag, as the wall of the bottle will also take some space. If you feel ...

1 litre. The UK has the same rules as the rest of EU and many other countries.

The 105 does in fact go to Heathrow Central bus station. As to why TfL's website incorrectly states otherwise I couldn't say

Break it down and explain it like you have done here. The main thing is to be completely clear and transparent about the funds in your account and where they come from to prevent any doubt. They will read the documentation, and you mentioned getting a letter confirming your payments from your employer, I agree this would only be beneficial to include as it ...

I'm not qualified to answer point 1), but as far as I'm aware, the legal side of this is still the Immigration (Hotel Records) Order 1972 which requires lodgings keepers to record the names and nationalities of their adult (over 16) guests and for "aliens" (which for a couple more weeks means non-EU citizens) Every such person who is an alien shall also— ...

If you have been invited to an interview with a reputable company who has promised to pay your expenses then the burden of payment is not on you. The Visa office will not expect you to show you can afford to pay for the trip because you will not be paying for it - the company will. When you fill in the questions about payment you can say that you will be ...

In my experience that's always been allowed for trains I've taken, I don't use trainline, but assuming you get the same orange and cream credit card sized ticket as every other train ticket this should apply. I often change trains, wait at stations and even get on or off at stations between my specified start / end station and have never had a barrier not ...

I would consider buying two return tickets - for the two parts of your journey: one from your origin to your connecting station and another from your connecting station to your destination. That way you'll have the right tickets to get in and out of your connecting station regardless of it being manned or having barriers. There's a chance it won't cost you ...

I just noticed today that a self-service checkout in a Swedish supermarket, where you can pay with either card or cash, now had the option to withdraw money from it. It's the first time I've ever seen it and I guess these could be found in the UK, maybe now maybe later. I know Tesco have self service machines that handle cash. So if you are like me, ...

On the risk of stating the obvious, You are being given false hopes in the comments. This decision is not clearly flawed. Your application was clearly flawed. Please do not reapply the same way, just to tell them their decision was wrong on so many aspects. Focus on addressing the concerns raised by the ECO. There is no flaw in them asking for a proof of ...

Probably. If you show your ticket to the staff at the barrier and explain, I can't imagine you will have a problem - I've done this dozens of times. Make a point of re-entering the station at the same barrier, you'll be recognized and waved through. Technically some tickets don't allow it (most do), but even then a polite ask will almost always get you ...

Will I be able to re-enter the UK on my US passport (now without the biometric residence permit, which I had to destroy and send in when I became a UK citizen), provided that I travel again within 6 months?

If you have submitted your application If you have submitted your application you should pay tour fee which can later be refunded. 2 ongoing visa applications won’t be allowed.

I have used the 111 before and it is pretty reliable. Whenever I had to depend on it, it came on time but it’s still good to have a second option. As to why the 105 doesn’t go to Heathrow Central Bus Station, I’m not sure but I can confirm it doesn’t go all the way. Maybe not enough bus stands or stops there/no place for it to park? As to an alternative, ...

The UK has no such requirement, but they are fully aware of how US visas work, so they will know that you need to have a new US visa stamped if you leave the US after your visa expires. If you have your I-797 you can submit that to prove you expect to return to the US (and thus, not overstay in the UK).
