  • @rayeobe, I totally agree with Alethia. Please book yourself into a hotel, even if it is just for the first few days. Maybe this will be the fairytale you imagine but it isn't safe to put yourself completely at this man's mercy before you have even …
  • @Myles24, just to clarify, you are saying you are a citizen of the Philippines who has been residing in the United Arab Emirates for the last decade, who wants to travel to California to visit family residing there? You will need a visa but having p…
  • Wow, quite the adventure! I have never done that particular border crossing, and have only very fond memories of Mozambique myself, but I travelled there years ago and I have since been told of the highway blockades and widespread demands for briber…
  • Thanks for that @Lesley. @zanati1, if you have any more questions check out this old thread about getting married in Tunisia - pages and pages of questions similar to yours and advise from experts like Lesley.
  • @Lizlaw, I advise that you confirm this by contacting the nearest embassy but it looks to me like Dominican nationals don't require a visa for Monaco for touristic stays of up to 90 days. You will need a passport valid for three months beyond period…
  • @Beebe, we have some wonderful Tunisia experts who may be able to help you, but please can you give us more information? What is your nationality and a what exactly is your situation?
  • @rulesofbio, my experience in New York was that a mixture of the subway and walking worked really well. It is super easy to navigate, thanks to the grid system, and you can cover a lot of ground using Central Park as a thoroughfare. For longer dista…
  • @9662901367 I gather you are an Indian national looking to enter Senegal? Citizens of India require passports valid for at least three months from arrival date in Senegal, but you should be able to stay without a visa for up to 90 days.
  • Just to back up Alethia here, totally a scam. If a foreigner working in South Africa had a car accident they would have medical/travel insurance, would be well taken care of, and could easily appeal to their embassy for help if necessary. We have he…
  • @johnomar, it sounds like your situation is complicated. If you're on a spouse visa in the UK then you are not living there illegally. I'm no expert on UK immigration law but I can tell you that in most countries a spouse visa is a much easier thing…
  • Bear in mind that the security situation in Paris is pretty tense at the moment.
  • @Prabz, if you have a valid Schengen visa you should be able to visit any country within the Schengen zone. There is a small chance that you might encounter some resistance at border control though: one of the conditions of a Schengen visa is that y…
  • Alethia is correct, nobody forces you to stick to the itinerary you mention when you apply for a visa. Once the Schengen visa has been issued you are free to move where you want within the Schengen zone. As far as where you should apply goes, I woul…
  • @Ericmensah, the requirements mentioned by Anya K above have not changed. Nationals of Ghana need a valid passport and a pre-arranged visa to enter Mexico, unless holding a valid visa for the USA. You need to apply at the nearest Mexican embassy. Wh…
  • I'm jealous - what a special place. I agree with Alethia that the best way to experience Tuscany is to hire a villa or cottage in the countryside and rent a car so that you can drive to all the special small towns and cities. I was lucky enough to e…
  • @rashidm, what is your nationality?
  • @Sasha123, hopefully somebody with personal experience of Switzerland will be along to advise you soon, but in the meantime check out this free Switzerland Travel Guide for some inspiration.
  • I'm afraid I have nothing to add @aviator. It seems cruel but sometimes students simply cannot motivate sufficiently to get visas to certain countries. Getting your renewed student permit for South Africa may help. As for where you should apply, it …
  • @aviator, the appeal process for Schengen visas can take forever I'm afraid. Far better to just re-apply with a stronger application if possible. Did you include an itinerary and confirmed hotel bookings? Is there anything else you can provide that …
  • @Kahlan, check out our Climate in Malta page. You might also want to read the rest of the guide for a bit of inspiration ans some useful info.
  • @Ajaymalhotra, where are you from? We can't tell you the entry requirements unless we know your nationality. Do you mean you don't have a passport at all? It is impossible to travel internationally without one, so the first thing you need to do is a…
  • Thanks @CheersT! Very useful stuff.
  • @ameliebrown, Dubai has a huge expat community and European-style food is probably not as hard to come by as you are imagining. You can check out this restaurants in Dubai page for some ideas. You will note that many of the popular European restaura…
  • Hi @Ajaymalhotra There's actually lots to do with kids in Dubai. Check out this page which details popular Dubai kids attractions.
  • Dubai is extremely hot, and I'm afraid you are visiting in one of the hottest months. In May the temperatures in Dubai average between about 24 degrees celsius and 37 degrees celsius, but the temperatures frequently rise above 40 degrees. Luckily th…
  • @ameliebrown, when are you visiting Dubai? Knowing the time of year will help us advise you on the climate (and may be important culturally, especially if you are visiting during Ramadan). As far as local custom goes, it is best to dress conservativ…
  • @ameliebrown, India is a very popular but also very vast tourist destination. The most well-beaten tourist route for first-time visitors is the Golden Triangle, which consists of Delhi (the capital), Agra (where the famous Taj Mahal is located) and …
  • @jsm, is there any stamp or indication in your passport that you were at any point in the country illegally? It sounds like you should be okay to return, because you were legally granted a work permit after the imprisonment and you didn't overstay o…
  • I'm glad you got the passport - it should simplify matters considerably for you. Enjoy your trip!
  • @utsavshah01, just to back up Alethia here, it makes no difference which country you apply at. Technically with a Schengen application you are meant to apply to either the country where you are spending the most time, or the country you are visiting…
