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 ...

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 ...

The advice for you is fairly much the same for everyone: do lots of shopping around. Even if your situation was simple and straightforward, the prices can vary a lot. The more unusual your situation, the more the prices are likely to vary. As your situation is fairly unusual, shopping around is especially important. Comparison sites are worth trying ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.
