  • Hi Mark, I've done some more research, and it seems you're right! As of now, since US citizens don't require a Schengen visa for any of the territories you'll be visiting, you won't require a multiple-entry permit, after all -- your US passport will…
  • Hi Mark Yes, you will need a multiple-entry visa if you leave the Schengen area before returning to it. The country in which you are scheduled to spend the longest amount of time must issue this visa to you. As far as Turkey is concerned, you sho…

  • One thing you HAVE to try while in Vietnam is Pho. Pho is basically a noodle soup, usually chicken- or beef-based, and is usually garnished with basil, lime and bean sprouts. The noodles are made from rice. Other stuff to look our for is coconut-s…
  • The 'dry season' in the Maldives runs from December to April, so if you want to avoid monsoon rain, I'd go then. However, it is ALWAYS hot (and regularly humid) in the Maldives: this might be something you just need to take on the chin. For the best…
  • Hello! Where are you intending on travelling to at the end of July? Some countries will insist that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your estimated departure from the country you are visiting; while others will onl…

  • Hi Little Red, as an Australian passport holder, you can get a visa on arrival in Tunisia, PROVIDED THAT you have confirmed onward/return air tickets out of the country. Happy trails!
  • It might depend on your nationality, but generally, I'd say you'd be okay. It is ALWAYS advisable to have a passport valid for six months after your intended date of departure from a country, but for a two-week stay in May (especially if you have co…
  • Yes, you may only spend a "maximum of 90 days in a 180-day period" in Germany, Marty. Sorry!

  • South Korea has some beautiful cherry blossom festivals. While I was living there, I went to one in Gyeongju, and it was lovely. Not sure I'd have made a special trip out from the States to see it, but still...
