  • 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…
  • @Amitshir, the weather in Egypt in June is blisteringly hot (their hot season is between May and October), so you need to prepare for serious heat. However, as with most desert climates, Egypt can get surprisingly chilly at night so do take at least…
  • Unfortunately CheersT is quite right @Willy69. To get a visa you will need to prove compelling ties to your home country (which I'm assuming is Nigeria). A letter from the institution you're studying at outlining that you have paid for your studies …
  • @aleciabane, check out the Maharajas Express website for the price of tickets and other details about the various journeys on offer: http://www.maharajas-express-india.com/
  • Hi Mike, Idaho is indeed about the outdoorsy stuff. I have heard very good things about Sun Valley and it is by far and away the most renowned ski resort of the state. If you do visit Boise there is snow fun to be had in the nearby Bogus Basin Mount…
  • @sonic, this is a continuation of a former conversation and it is confusing out of context. Please go and post it in the thread you originally started and which people have already responded to.
  • Just to clarify @karim12, you are saying that you are planning a holiday in Germany and will only be spending one night at home in Tunisia? You have left it a bit late to apply for a Schengen visa from any country at this point, but yes, you could t…
  • @nazeem, can I suggest that you try this forum: http://www.expatarrivals.com/answers They specialise in expat-related questions and may be able to advise you. I can say, however, that I know of two older men working very successfully in Dubai.
  • @leolevan, it is always best to direct these questions to the cruise operator. It is passengers' responsibility to organise whatever visas they need for the cruise but the company should be more than happy to advise you. As far as I can see Georgian…
