Re: Wording on China visa application

Just set up an ordinary tourist itinerary. Once you have your visa it doesn't matter where you enter, exit or go during your time in China and while you will probably get the visa even with mentioning Xinjiang, chances you won't get it are higher so why bother with excessive honesty. Occupation-wise...

Re: Pakistan e-visa and VOA Q&A

Was just about to give up on the e-visa and attempt to get a visa from my home embassy literally tomorrow. But, seeing that's there's an actual website created, I'm unsure if I should still go ahead with just getting the visa from the embassy or wait until the website supports USA visas. I'm wonder...

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

So in short the only difference between this and the regular visa-free regime is that you will be able to enter visa-free overland. Is this certain by the way? I did not find any explicit reference in the Indonesian embassy announcement. Hej Steven, yep that's it. Unless you're visiting Belarus exp...

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

Be aware that there may not be a proper border check when continuing towards Russia, which would be an issue if you need to enter Russia offically -but I'm not up to date on the situation. Currently, it's a huge problem and people do get in trouble with the FSB regularly. Currently, you cannot cros...

Re: Embassy report: Nagorno-Karabakh in Yerevan

May I ask, if you get your Artsakh Visa in Yerevan and sticked on your passport, at border crossing, do they give you extra entry and exit stamps? :D Do you *want* stamps? I'm quite sure that if you ask nicely, they'd be happy and proud to put any stamps they have in your passport :) The usual case...

Well, not exactly the Silk Road yet, but to get there you may want to cross Belarus. Once again you can go visa free thanks to an international competition (European Games 2019)! The tickets have just gone on sale December 1 and the cheapest ones go for just 7 BYR (less than EUR 3). Anyone with a ti...
