  • Check out this longer (7 page!) thread on this issue: http://forum.wordtravels.com/discussion/3911/i-was-deported-from-korea/p1 As you will see it is impossible for us to predict how long any individual may have been banned for. Only Korean Immigrat…
  • December is winter in Turkey and outside of the main tourist season. The most popular months to visit are July to September. The coastal resorts will mostly be closed in December and Cappadocia will be very cold, but Istanbul really can be visited a…
  • @meflmb@gmail.com I'm afraid there's not much we can do to help you. All we can do is tell you what the law is and give you advice about how to proceed - we can't change the law. You clearly know the legal situation and you don't want advice on how …
  • Vaccinations are recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid. The only required vaccination is yellow fever, and only for those arriving from infected areas. Malaria is an issue only at areas with an altitude less than 1800 metres... most t…
  • Ah I see why you're confused. People applying for Schengen visas are supposed to apply at either the first Schengen country they will be entering or the country they will be staying in for the most time. However, in practice, once the visa has been …
  • You can visit Italy and/or Spain for as many days as you like within the period that your visa is valid. You have 90 days to spend wherever you want in the Schengen zone. As your visa is multiple entry you can also leave the zone and return so long …
  • aanastacio, check out this lengthy thread on deportation and banning issues in South Korea: http://forum.wordtravels.com/discussion/3911/i-was-deported-from-korea/p1 Unfortunately it is impossible for us to give you a concrete answer about how long …
  • Hi Affeur, I see your problem with the early rising - though most toddlers I know have the opposite problem! I'm afraid I can't recommend any particular resorts or resort areas as I haven't been to the coast. Hopefully somebody else will be along to…
  • Hi SallyG, I have never been to Sweden but the general consensus is that the mild summer months of June, July and August are the best time to visit. July is the peak tourist season so perhaps avoid that month if you don't want crowds. Luckily, howev…
  • Hi affeur, I'm jealous! I would recommend Cappadocia as a good Turkey destination. The hot air ballooning over that weird, ancient landscape is magical and I'm sure your toddler will enjoy exploring the caves. Possibly a coastal destination as the t…
  • Hi Erma, You will need a passport valid at least for the duration of your stay in the UK, and a visa to enter the UK (of which Scotland is a part). You will have to apply at the UK Embassy nearest where you live.
  • Technically one is supposed to apply for a Schengen visa through either the country one is entering first or spending the most time in, but I have never heard of this being enforced and it is pretty common for travellers to change their plans. You s…
  • As Alethia said in the above post, once a Schengen visa is granted it allows entry to all Schengen countries, regardless of which country issued it. So yes, you can visit France with a Schengen visa issued by Spain.
  • 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 …
