  • I second Terry! Venezuela is just not in a good state for tourists right now.
  • Well done @micha for figuring it out and doing a bit of research. I'm glad you found the forum useful!
  • @jeet190, there is a general threat from terrorism in Kuwait but most visits are trouble free and there are no serious travel alerts or anything in place. Check out the British government's advice for more detail: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-a…
  • @lunanavu, I agree with most of what you say about Zimbabwe - as a tourist destination it is still pretty safe, despite the terrible political violence. I would advise that travellers stick to the more touristy areas, as you suggest, and it is a tru…
  • @TTip, I'm afraid nobody here can answer your question - only Korean immigration will know. I can tell you though, that South Korea is pretty tough on this sort of thing (I have heard of bans up to 10 years and severe punishments). You missed a cour…
  • When are you planning on travelling to Sweden? It is not a cheap destination but if you are going in the warmer months you may well be able to camp (especially seeing as you want to explore outside of the cities). There are many campsites. Maybe you…
  • The cool season between November and February is considered the best time to visit Thailand but as I understand it the popular areas are likely to be busy anytime outside of monsoon season (June - October). I don't know Thailand well but most of the…
  • @ping, I'm not sure exactly what happened with the port agent, but the fact that you were denied a visa by Italy won't mean you can't get a visa from Spain, provided your application is in order.
  • Hi @Frankie85, For starters, check out this free Poland Travel guide, which includes a guide to Krakow and advice about transport and the airport.
  • @monicakira11, as Terry says, it totally depends where in Thailand you are going. If it is a major resort or touristy area you probably will need to book in advance - let us know where you want to go and we'll do our best to advise you.
  • @vipinatw, Terry is right, we need something to go on before we can advise you. If you describe the kind of holiday you want (luxury/budget/cultural/outdoorsy etc), and the countries you are most interested in visiting, we can help with suggestions.
  • @JackRigsby, just to confirm, there is absolutely zero risk of Ebola in Botswana or South Africa. In fact, the only countries in Africa you need to worry about for Ebola are the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The outbrea…
  • @PatrickMakuza, as Alethia has said, your post is a bit confusing regarding nationality but if you and your daughter are citizens of Denmark you will be fine travelling to Belgium, or any Schengen state, so long as your passports are valid for the d…
  • @KittyPurl, I'm afraid David is no longer an expert on this forum, but you will be absolutely fine. British citizens technically only require a valid passport to travel to Poland - though having a bit of leeway is always a good idea.
  • @Kahlan, the advice I gave above hasn't really changed. Myanmar has taken big steps towards democracy since the recent election, but the country is still struggling with serious ethnic conflict. This sectarian violence seldom affects tourists though…
  • @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…
