During a police traffic control, as in all countries, you must have the documentation required by the local law. In most cases this will be a valid driver's licence and papers for the car. For a foreign lincense some countries (and some US States) require a IDP (international drivers permit/license). Depending on the situation, a police officer could also ...

For those paperless airports, instead of filling out the paper form, you go to a kiosk where you fill out all the same information. Some of it is pre-populated from you swiping your passport at the kiosk, but then it will ask you the same questions the paper form does. It then prints a copy of the form that you hand to the customs officer. See this website ...

When you declare the chocolates you will likely be sent to agricultural inspection. However, at least at the time we typically arrive, this is very short. Your bags go through an x-ray, they may ask you to open some of them so they can look at anything the x-ray picked out as being of possible interest. I don't believe it has ever added even 10 minutes to ...

[This assumes your business is not to sell chocolates] You will need to list the chocolates you plan to gift on your customs declaration, with an estimated value, and if your total (with all other things you plan to leave in the US) is over the limit, you will have to pay customs duty, which will take some time. If you are below the limits (about 400$, not ...

The most flexible search engine I've used to find flights is Adioso. You start by selecting your origin airport, then: Destination, which you can either select from cities, or airports, up to whole regions or continents. Departure date, which can be specific date or ranges, including entire months, or even anytime. Trip length to exactly or about some ...

I tend to use SkyScanner to search for flights- it will let you choose where you fly from/ to (airport/ city/ country, etc) or you can specify where you want to fly from, and leave the destination empty to search for all flights from that location. I have found some pretty good deals through there- UK to various places in Europe for under £100 return, London ...

There are also Virtual Assistant services that will add a personal touch to this and can help you go through the masses of options out there so you dont have to, just tell them your requirements and your budget and let them do the hard work on your behalf. AnyHelper and ButlerBobs.com are two of the bigger ones. Disclosure: I am the founder and owner of ...

You don't have to seek out some special place for last minute deals. There are plenty of websites that do this - just search for "last minute deals". Alternatively, you can just go to your favourite airline's website and see where you can go tomorrow within your budget, then go to your favourite hotel chain's website and see what they have for that ...

If you google 'last minute travel deals', you'll find plenty of sites, including lastminute.com, which have deals like this. I also subscribe to travelzoo, they have a last minute section too (eg for the UK), where I once got a crazy cheap flight from London to Vancouver, Canada with mere days of notice.

The purpose of your visit also matters as well as how long you intend to stay in the US. It will inform the kind of visa you'll apply for as well as what documents you will need. However, I believe we have sufficient information for you on Timbu regardless of all these.

I can't speak for TSA, but generally, I don't see why not. Over the years I have flown with laptops (more than one at the same time), all kinds of components and even an IKVM without any problem. A tower is not that different from a laptop. Just be sure there aren't any sharp parts that might be seen as dangerous. Also, be sure the tower is within the ...

An ESTA is not a physical object, it is an electronic record. From the ESTA FAQ: Do I need to bring a printout or digital copy of my travel authorization to the airport? No. DHS will be able to communicate a traveler's ESTA status to the carriers. However, DHS recommends that travelers print out the travel authorization application response in order ...

The best answer anyone will be able to give you is 'maybe', as it will depend a lot on the exact situations - and in particular the reason that your visa was refused. The US is often relatively strict when it comes to giving B1/B2 visas to people from VWP-eligible countries, and generally will require them to provide a suitable reason why they would not be ...


3

Yes, it might. According to https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit/visa-waiver-program.html a recent visa refusal for any reason could result in denial of ESTA authorization, additional review at the port of entry, or denial of admission to the United States.

The answer to how far in advance you can book an appointment at a particular NEXUS enrollment center seems to depend on the enrollment center. There do not appear to be any solid rules there. The only way to determine the dates that are currently available for selection is to go to the scheduler, select the enrollment center, and browse the available dates. ...

Yes, you can buy the pass there, but only until 4:20 pm each day. Perhaps 50 feet ahead of the entrance station is a sign showing all of the available fees and passes. The Interagency Annual Pass (the official name for this pass) is listed, along with the other variants (senior, military, access pass, etc).

I don't know specifically about Ohio, but I've been called for both federal and state jury service in New York. In both cases, I was called for a time during a trip out of town. In both cases, I received a postponement because of my plans. If I recall correctly, my statement to that effect was sufficient to have the service postponed without having to ...

Your post is confusing. There is no "90-day visa". You are probably talking about the 90-day admission period on the Visa Waiver Program. When you enter the US on the Visa Waiver Program, you are almost always admitted for 90 days (unless you have only been to Canada or Mexico or Caribbean islands since your last stay on VWP), regardless of how long you ...

In simple words, there is no service which will provide you 1gb with calls/text at your expected price point. And as Michael commented on the question, you cannot purchase a US prepaid sim from US networks as they ask your SSN in most of the cases. You have to find someone living in the US and has a valid SSN to get you a prepaid sim under their name. ...

I visited Boquillas this weekend so I can now answer this. No documentation is needed to enter Mexico at Boquillas in the Mexico direction. When you enter, you will be directed to a trailer, at which point you will pay a fee of $2 USD per person for a wristband. Your passport and documents will not be checked, however a Federal Police office is nearby, ...

Yes, you can apply for a B1/B2 visa from outside your country of residence. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit/visitor.html As a general rule, you should schedule an appointment for your visa interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country where you live. You may schedule your interview at another U.S. Embassy or ...

You can walk or drive. If you're doing a point-to-point walk, then having two cars is helpful: drop off one at the end point of your walk, using the other car to drive to the start point. I doubt there's enough demand for uber/lyft at the Grand Canyon for there to be any cars operating there.

That means that a small part (at one end) of the Navajo loop trail is closed. See the park map (pdf link). The map at the right hand side (Bryce Ampitheatre enlarged) gives you the relevant information. Wall street is shown highlighted in orange, which is marked as "summer use only". The rest of the trail is still open, so you could start at Sunrise Point, ...

I think you should be fine. Automatic revalidation applies even when the nonimmigrant category changes, so a change in the I-20 details should be no problem. See 22 CFR 41.112(d)(1)(ii): (d) Automatic extension of validity at ports of entry. (1) Provided that the requirements set out in paragraph (d)(2) of this section are fully met, the following ...

According to a DHS press release from 2 August 2003 announcing the suspension of the TWOV and ITI programs effective on that date: The Transit Without Visa program has been in use in the United States since 1952. It applies to passengers who normally would be required to obtain a visa to travel to the United States. Under the TWOV program, passengers ...

Sunset Point (and all the other named points in Bryce) all have parking lots of various sizes, as well as a well paved Rim Trail that connects all of them. In particular, Sunset Point's parking lot probably fits 60-70 cars.

Cars are always allowed into the park up at least until the tunnel (people staying at the lodge can go farther to park there), because highway 9 runs through the park. This allows parking at the visitor's center and the museum, as well as some of the campgrounds, I believe. As you say, these spots will fill up very early, depending on time of year. If you ...

I only have anecdotal evidence, based on my own experience and what I've been told while waiting on our SENTRI applications to be processed. My kids took 2 or 3 weeks longer to receive conditional approval. I emailed CBP several times while waiting (our SENTRI took over 12 months before Conditional Approval given), and all they'd say is that while it says ...

According to CBP official website FAQ on the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act Frequently Asked Questions, the question is completely optional. Do I have to answer the new questions if the provisions of the new Act do not apply to me? Yes. All ESTA applicants must complete all non-optional fields on the ESTA ...

Fairly typical etiquette among those who tip housekeeping is usually to tip every day the service is provided. It may be done by different people on different days, so providing a tip at the time the work is done makes sense. I'm sure it will be appreciated regardless though. In any event, I don't think it's intrinsically rude to leave an appropriate tip ...

It doesn't matter which passport you use for travelling (but remember that you must arrive in the US with your US passport), TSA Pre is not related to that. You need to add your Known Traveller Number (written on the back of the Global Entry card) into your booking (at least 24h before you check-in create your boarding pass). This is easiest on the airline'...

It's worth noting that TSA Pre✔️ is available if the airline participates in the TSA Pre✔️ program. TSA lists participating airlines on this page.

During booking or check in you can add your Known Traveller Number (i.e. Global Entry, Nexus, etc.) to the booking and in most cases this will give you Pre Check. That's independent on what passport you are using to travel. Even easier: make an account with the airline directly and add the Known Traveller Number to your profile and add you booking to your ...

I agree with @Arthur's Pass' comment above. Because we don't see the prior refusals, and you've not provided much information in your question, we're just guessing. You could help us by posting a scan of your refusal letter, with personal identification data obscured. Still, I'll add a few observations. The evaluator is looking for ties to your home ...

I was able to find two self-service junkyards in Indianapolis (none in Bloomington) which were large enough to bother with visiting. These allow you to enter for a small fee, find the parts you want, pull them out and then pay for those parts as you leave. U-Pull-&-Pay (map) is located north of downtown Indianapolis and has a $2 per person admission fee....

There is/was a sizeable junkyard associated with Bloomington Auto Parts, just north of Bloomington. It was clearly visible from SR-37 back before the I-69 project, and while I no longer live in the area, I would be surprised if it had been moved since then. Note that the aerial imagery used by Google predates the I-69 project, and does not accurately ...

A valid Indian passport, of any length of validity, should be sufficient to enter and leave India. From the US point of view, a returning permanent resident with a valid green card does not even need a passport to re-enter at all, so it is obviously not a problem to have a valid passport of any length of validity. See this answer from the CBP: United ...

For an Indian national, with a valid US Green Card, the passport must be valid upon the last stage of travel (i.e. leaving India and entering the United States). A minimal validity of the passport is not required in this case, since the US will assume that you will apply for a new passport after your return (here the Green Card is important). As a ...

I've faced interviews at the US Embassy in Dhaka twice (in a span of five years) and both times it was for attending tech conferences/company retreats in the US. You should present all the documents related to your work (any contract letter) along with the invitation letter when you go to the interview. Also, make sure to keep some of the other paperwork ...

The hike described on alltrails is only one section of the Rim Trail described in the NPS document. Inspecting the alltrails map, their hike starts at the point that NPS calls "Village Route Transfer", goes east to Mather Point, and then returns the same way. The NPS guide shows the distance from Village Route Transfer to Mather Point as 1.2 + .7 + .7 = 2....

The United States Department of Agriculture has a body that controls the import of plant and animal products to the United States, called the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

It's a fairly simple question and should not be too onerous of a task. List all the countries you've visited in the last 5 years. You've been to the UK and India, so state that you've been to the UK and India. Have you been to Mexico too? If so, then state that.

I have had the same issue. It is triggered by the year. For example the system works if you have a validity of 10 years 11 months if the dates run from say Jan 2015-Dec2025 but as soon as the year overlaps from 2015-2025 to 2015-2026 it will stop working. I have phoned them about this a couple of times and they are aware of the problem but have offered no ...

No, these shuttles are provided for hotel guests, not for anyone to use. Also, some cursory research by Googling seems to show that most major hotels on the strip do charge their guests for using the shuttle. The hotels that provide free shuttles tend to be not the ones you think of when you want to stay on the strip. Those that do offer a free shuttle ...

From Italy: no. Cruise ships navigate the Atlantic Ocean from West to East on spring, and from East to West on fall. You will find most of ships will do this crossing, and some also from Italy. This is "repositioning" and so usually much cheaper. They go on summer on Europe, and in Winter on Caribbean Sea. There is just Cunard which do regular ...

Under INA 222(g) (8 USC 1202(g)), if you used a nonimmigrant visa to enter the US, that visa is automatically void when you stayed beyond the date on your I-94, for any amount of time.
