Standard visitor visa seems like it's not long enough.
I would like to come and go as I please. I would like to add I'm currently in the UK, have been here for 3.5 months.
There's no way to do what you want. As a US citizen, there is no visa you can apply for which gives you anything above your visa-free entitlement to apply for entry for 6 months at the ...
The UK (and many other countries) have a rather odd (to you) view on remote work. You're not allowed to do it there on a visitor visa. So stop!
Interview with UK firms and get a job with one, that lets you work where you would like to be located, and that is of a type that qualifies you for a long term UK visa. Given that you stated that you want a visa ...
You might be in a difficult position.
Edited to add: You are most definitely in a difficult position, the original answer below was based on a first reading of your question - I missed the point where you say you have spent 3 years in the UK after entering via the CTA without leave to enter. To compound matters, unless you have been living on savings for ...
Assuming you are in the US (since I only know that some Canadian provinces and US states issue EDLs, and Canada does not have a passport card), you would need to apply as a first time applicant.
An EDL is not actually a passport card, even though they both Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative compliant travel documents used for land and sea travel.
The current restrictions (in place until 15 June 2020) do not allow you to enter.
If you are not a citizen of an EU member site (including United Kingdom, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) and not a‑country national with a long‑term right of residence in an EU Member State and/or the countries mentioned above you have to be travelling for one ...
US Citizens don't need a visa and can enter without a passport provided they can show an original or notarised birth certificate to prove their citizenship, and that they have a return or through ticket to a country that will accept them. (Source)
Whilst it might be technically possible to fly without a passport, returning to the US with just a birth ...
Can I work for my usual employer remotely while on holiday in New Zealand?
Yes. As long as the primary purpose of your visit to New Zealand is ‘holidaying’.
If holidaying will be the main activity that you will be engaged in throughout your time in New Zealand, it would not be an issue to work remotely from time to time in relation to your usual overseas ...
To do what you're intending, I think your only available option is to get pre-settled status in the UK via the Surinder Singh route. Essentially it involves:
Move to Germany with your girlfriend
Stay until end of year
Apply for EEA Family Permit, so that you get it before end of 2020
Come to UK with EEA Family Permit
Apply for Settled Status
The European Commission has just (2020-06-11) announced suggestions for the possible lifting of the temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU after the 30th of June 2020.
Given that the health situation in certain third countries remains critical, the Commission does not propose a general lifting of the travel restriction at this stage. The ...
How can I (US Citizen) get into Germany mid-June 2020?
Unlikely according to
Deutsche Welle (mirror):
Entry from non-bordering countries will be banned until at least June 15. This may change for some countries, particularly those within Europe's 26-member Schengen zone of visa-free travel.
Russia and the United States will be unlikely to see any change in ...
Nope—don't think so. Not unless you already have a biometric visa to begin with.
Edit I (US Citizen) did a Master's in the UK and had a biometric visa, so they had my prints. But whenever I just enter for kicks, I never get fingerprinted. Maybe this has changed due to Brexit. Last I entered was March 2020.
As you are presumably a US resident, you can stay for up to 30 days:
Residents of the United States of America
A person resident in the United States of America who:
arrives in the Cayman Islands directly from that country;
on landing, produces a valid United States Alien Registration Card; and
produces a return or round trip ticket to that country,
He will have no problems leaving the country.
Your son cannot be denied entry into the US. He may get questioned or yelled at by CBP but he will get in, if he manages to get to the border in the first place
However, no airline will let him board a US bound flight with an expired US passport
As a dual citizen you are required to use your US ...
Russia is not open yet for international visitors, unless they travel for medical purposes or to support a disabled relative.
It's possible that air companies will sell tickets for future dates hoping that admission rules will be relaxed by then, but nobody can be sure when that would happen.
If you hold Russian citizenship you can enter the country all ...
As an American, the confusion about this sort of statement confuses me. When hearing or saying this type of statement, I tend to view it in context and familiarity. In no case is a statement like this an actual invitation when spoken on its own. It is an analogous bidding of farewell to greetings like “How are you?”, or “What’s up?”.
In other words, if I ...
