visas – What countries in the Schengen area accept US travel document (form I-571)

I’m planning a trip to Europe this summer (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and will be using my travel document (Form I-571) that I have based on asylum from Syria. I had a visa appointment at the Spanish consulate today and was not able to submit the application as the officer mentioned that Spain does not recognize refugee/asylee travel documents.

This wikipedia page mentions that Spain accepts U.S. travel documents, however, I’ve read other sources that site the opposite such as this thread. Do you know which countries accept a travel document (with a Schengen visa) in 2019? I’d appreciate if you can include an official website, I’m having a hard time finding any.

pnp powershell – Get Copy Link Value from Document Library Files

I am in the process of moving files to Sharepoint Online. Some of the files will have a share assigned to them (obtained via the ‘Copy Link’ option) in the format

I want to get a list of all links using the PnP Powershell Framework but cannot find the field in the ListItem or File object that contains the information. If i select the file in Sharepoint Online, i can see a link icon which has tooltip ‘1 link giving access’ in the ‘Has Access’ Info panel.

I can get the relative URL information (

My script is as follows:

#Get Credentials
$creds = Get-Credential -UserName $user -Message "Enter password."

Connect-PnPOnline –Url $site –Credentials $creds

#Get All Items to see which one i want
Get-PnPListItem -List $docLibrary

#get more info for my test file which has ID = 295
$checkItem = Get-PnPListItem -List $docLibrary -Id 295

#See all field values for the check item

I cannot see the link information in any of the field values.

I have also tried the File object but again, cannot obviously see where the information is.

$checkFile = Get-PnpFile -Url $link

Note: the $link in the above line is the relative URL

Is this possible using the PnP Framework and do i just need to dig further into the object to get what i need or is it not possible.

We have a client who has all their client folders in sharepoint online, they usually every year go ahead and manually create a new folder within each client folder with the year (2021).

They have asked if there is a way to automatically create a folder within each separate client folder rather than doing it manually

sharepoint online – Copy documents from document library A to document library B

I have a requirement to develop a solution based on SPFx, namely, copy main versions of a documents from document library A to document library B. I have tested copyto (PnP.js) but it only copies the latest version. This is not possible with copyByPath (destinationUrl, true, true);

For example, if a document has 5 versions (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0), is it possible to copy 5 times, once version 1.0, etc. and overwrite and in this way keep version history? How?

All tips are really appreciated.

visas – South African Refugee Travel Document

US law and other materials routinely refer to “passports”, but that term is defined to include other passport-like documents that do not bear the title “passport.” The definition is at 8 USC 1101(a)(30):

The term “passport” means any travel document issued by competent authority showing the bearer’s origin, identity, and nationality if any, which is valid for the admission of the bearer into a foreign country.

This definition applies to the entire Immigration and Nationality Act. If the US refuses your visa, the kind of travel document you are using will not be the reason for the refusal.

sharing – How can I tell who created a link to a SharePoint document?

Users are not sharing links to docs/folders properly. Instead of selecting ‘users with existing access’ or ‘view only’ access when sharing a link, they’re leaving the default of Edit, giving whoever has that link Edit privileges.

Where can I see who is creating the link (not who accessed the link)?
