  • If you never even got past immigration I can't see how you could have been banned from the country, but not knowing the reason you didn't get in last time makes it very difficult to speculate on whether you'll get in if you try again. Sorry, this is…
  • @senior2020 do you know why you were refused entry and deported in the first place?
  • @Alizaidi, if you are issued a Schengen visa you can travel to any country within the Schengen zone, regardless of which country issued the visa. So yes, if Spain grants you a visa you can also travel to Portugal. However, it sounds like you need to…
  • I'm afraid it's difficult for anybody here to answer your question. Different embassies have different waiting periods for visas. They usually advise you on how much time it will take when you make your application. It can be anything from days to w…
  • Hi there, South Africans do need visas for Mali but they can usually be issued on arrival, especially if you have an invitation. Your only option if you've started having hassles is to contact the nearest Mali embassy and find out from them what you…
  • As I said above, if a visa is granted by any Schengen country you can travel freely in the whole Schengen zone. There are no borders. Your visa may be checked at airports but a Schengen visa entitles you to travel to any Schengen country no matter w…
  • Naufal, if you are granted a Schengen visa you are entitled to travel to any of the Schengen countries within the period the visa is valid, regardless of which country issued the visa. You are meant to apply at the country you will be entering first…
  • @hud, I'm afraid every aspect of this story is a signature romance scam. You don't need confirmation that the name is fake to know this is all lies. Cut ties immediately.
  • Hi Lajos, I don't have any experience of airbnb in India specifically, but I can tell you that it is a wonderful resource for the budget traveller. Often you can find very reasonably priced options and stay in much more comfort than you would in a b…
  • The rejection reason not being stated is very odd. Did they say nothing at all? Is there a stamp with a code of some kind in your passport? Let us know what they gave you and we may be able to figure out why you were denied. I would just strengthen …
  • As I said above you can apply again immediately. Or at least as soon as you can get an appointment and get your new application together. There's no way to remove the refusal stamp from your passport but having been previously refused does not mean …
  • Hi there. It isn't worth appealing - the appeal process for Schengen visas is seldom successful and can take a very long time. You can reapply immediately - just make sure your application is stronger this time by including new documents etc that pr…
  • @helloworld, it is not strictly necessary to book through a travel agent (and yes, by travel agent we mean traditional travel agents, not websites) but it hugely increases your chances of getting your visa. I have been granted several Schengen visas…
  • @Gopays25, you will see from reading the threads on this issue that we can't give you a definite answer about this as people are banned from South Korea for different periods of time depending on their infringement. You could be banned for anything …
  • Hi Joseph, I'm afraid you will need a visa. And your passport should be valid for the duration of your stay. If you are going to complete a course of study it should be fairly easy to get a visa - just ask the school you're attending to send you an …
  • @sush1631 Alethia replied to your duplicate post in another thread I think. The point she is trying to make is that we have no way of predicting whether you will be granted your visa or not. We can offer advice before application but once the applic…
  • If you intend to stay in Australia as long as your visa is valid then perhaps you should just book a flight now for the last week or so that the visa is active. You will have to leave by then anyway. Many airlines offer flexible tickets for a price …
  • @feranza, while you would be cutting it too fine for many destinations, New Zealanders only require a valid passport to enter Australia, with no additional validity period thereafter. It is good that your passport is valid for the duration of your t…
  • Hi MJ18, I assume you're Malaysian? The return ticket rule is often a requirement of getting a visa in the first place so the fact that you already have a visa is a good start. You may not need the return ticket - I can't see any specific rule about…
  • Hi @abhijit04in, That single entry visa allows you a single entry to the Schengen zone, including all countries in that zone. You will be absolutely fine travelling between France, Hungary and Austria, and any other Schengen country in the same holi…
  • Please do post an update once you have returned @SidRead. The only place I have been in Zimbabwe in the last decade is Vic Falls, which is rumbling along much the same as ever. I would be very interested to hear how you find Harare.
  • Hi FreddyJ, If you are British Citizens then your daughter should be fine to travel. All British Citizens need for travel to France is passport validity for the duration of their stay. Enjoy!
  • Hi Alethia. If you look back you will see that Stuart said he was British, but not that he was a British Citizen and I advised him that if he was a British Citizen he would not need any period of validity beyond his travels. Which is the same thing …
  • I'm afraid I agree with Alethia, @cheerful1944. This sounds like a classic romance scam.
  • Thanks for that Alethia. I am fully aware. Stuart didn't state what endorsement his passport carries and the rules vary depending on endorsement so I felt it was safe to tell him that at most he would need three months, but if he is a British citize…
  • You won't have any problem then. Those carrying British passports require at most three months validity on their passports to enter Spain. If you are a British Citizen you only need your passport to be valid for the period of intended stay. Enjoy yo…
  • Hi Stuart, what is your nationality? I need to know that to be sure I'm giving you the right information.
  • Hi Greg, I haven't personally been to Portugal (sadly!) but I think this free Portugal Travel Guide will be a big help. It includes summaries of many of the most popular resorts. Hopefully somebody with more personal experience will come along to ad…
  • You shouldn't have any problem @pranshulink. Your Schengen visa is valid for the whole Schengen zone regardless of which country issued it.
  • Hi Amber, You don't say where exactly you're going or what your interests are, but hopefully this free New Zealand Travel Guide will give you some ideas and inspiration. If you have more specific questions let us know.
