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 ...

You don't need a return ticket, but with you having a boyfriend there, I'd strongly recommend you to get one. If nothing else, a random fully-refundable ticket for a date around the time you suspect you'll return. Also, if staying longer than a month, bring every single piece of documentation proving your ties to the US (signed/stamped employment/school ...

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.

Your passport cannot be taken from you because you were born in Iran. You cannot be deprived of US citizenship because you were born in Iran. As a US citizen, you cannot be refused entry to the US. None of that changes because you hold another citizenship in addition to the US citizenship. However, we can't predict whether you'll be temporarily detained ...

A return or round trip ticket is not required. However, depending on your entry experience, it may be helpful to demonstrate your intention to return or at least leave. If you are routed to a Border Force Officer, they must be satisfied you are not an overstay risk. If cash is an issue, you can often find award tickets for less than most credit card sign ...

Ok, here is my actual experience: When checking in for departure I informed the agent (in the US) that I will be using the 144 hour transit visa. He then requested my onward ticket confirmation to leave China. Make sure it has the flight number, dates, and everything. He entered in all my information and I was set. Now, when I arrived in Beijing, make ...

It's also worth looking into a "Miscellaneous_charges_order" (MCO). Its like an airline ticket, issued by an airline in your home country, but shows a currency amount rather than a flight booking. It is convertable into an airline ticket on demand, with any airline (almost). It is refundable in your home country if not used, but not refundable for cash ...

Yes, that should be fine. Your first trip to Japan is as a tourist, which is OK, and your second trip is as an unpaid intern staying under 90 days, which is also OK. Source: http://www.moj.go.jp/nyuukokukanri/kouhou/nyuukokukanri07_00109.html You may be asked for a return ticket when checking in or when entering, but showing a ticket to Korea is fine for ...

All the answers above are good, but I have a bit of additional advice. I'm British, and my wife is American and works for a US airline, so we frequently have family coming to the UK using her cheap travel benefits, who usually stay for a while, so I have some experience on what to expect. If you don't have a return ticket, your first problem will not be ...

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 ...

Beyond the passport and Russian visa that most people need to enter Russia generally, there are two additional separate permits required to visit the Chukotka region, which is normally closed to nonresidents: The rasporyazheniye (распоряжение), which permits entry into the region (only foreigners require this permit, Russians do not), and The propusk (...

Okay, so here is the immigration area for Visa on Arrival in Nepal: When you get into the arrival terminal head to your right towards the little kiosks: From there you will scan your passport and fill out the info on the screen. There was a nice lady helping people and she spoke excellent English when I arrived, so that helped. Get your printed ticket. ...

You have a lot of answers related to your current plan of staying up to six months. This answer questions that whole plan. Your goal is to work out where your current long distance relationship is going, and if it goes well to be able to marry your boyfriend and move to the UK. For that to be feasible, you need to keep a good record with the UK immigration ...

You have an absolute right to enter the country of your citizenship. That's what citizenship means. They can punish you for lack of paperwork, but the punishment is civil, and can't include refusal to enter. However, they can detain you indefinitely while the proof of citizenship is obtained. However, you cannot get on an airplane without proper ...

The UK gives advice to applicants for visas (who are from countries which do not have a visa waiver, like Nigeria). The UK says specifically Don't bother buying an airline ticket; they will not convince us of your intent to leave the UK at the end of your planned visit. Immigration is there to enforce the immigration laws: mainly to make sure visitors don'...

Looking at the applicable regulations, 8 CFR § 217.5 says that "Each nonimmigrant alien intending to travel by air or sea to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) must, within the time specified in paragraph (b) of this section, receive a travel authorization" (emphasis mine) This specifies that non-US citizens must get an ESTA, but doesn't ...

I noticed that this older set of answers could use the following updated information regarding the US/Polish agreement. The agreement made in April 1991 which allows US Nationals, or legal residents, to remain in Poland up to 90 days at any time has been moved to a new location online. I tracked it down because I wanted a copy for use at the border crossing ...

Lonely Planet says the Katmandu airport officials accept "any major currency" but land borders only accept USD. The official site says: While you can use different modes of payments (at visa fees collection counter), we advise you to carry some cash to be on the safe side.

You can return to the US as long as your passport is valid on the day of arrival. If your passport expires two months after you arrive, so much the better. The US has a six month rule for the passports of certain foreign countries, but it does not apply to US passports. You should also check whether the countries you're visiting have similar rules. Many ...

Before last year we would say that you should expect a lot of scrutiny at the border if you arrive without a return ticket and say you want to stay for the maximum allowable time, but if you can prove your finances are such that you do not need to work while in the UK (or, preferably, ever again in your life) and you can support yourself, then you would ...

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 ...
