customs and immigration – Can holders of a residence permit issued by an EU/EFTA state enter Hungary if Hungary has opened its borders to the nationals of that state?

Sorry for the clumpsy title (edits would be appreciated).

Hungary has now relaxed the control at internal borders. According to the US embassy in Hungary, Citizens from neighbouring EU countries (Austria, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, with the exception of Romania) as well as Germany, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Norway, and Iceland can now enter Hungary without restrictions.

According to the Swiss embassy, citizens of all EU/EFTA states and Serbia can now enter Hungary without restrictions since June 18.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find an official Hungarian source on these to see if (temporary or permanent) residence permit holders from e.g. Austria (neighbouring) or Switzerland (not neighbouring) can enter Hungary in a similar manner as the nationals of those countries.

For example, this press release says

During today’s Operational Group press conference, Róbert Kiss, Lieutenant Colonel of the Hungarian Police Force, reported that people can now enter Hungary from the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Serbia, Slovenia and from Friday Croatia without the need for compulsory home quarantine.

without specifying citizenship/residence/etc.

The border information on the Hungarian police website appears to have not been updated since June 12, it only mentioned exceptions for neighbouring states but not other EU/EFTA countries.

customs and immigration – Which Schengen countries don’t stamp passports of ordinary residence permit holders?

The Schengen Borders Code doesn’t prescribe an exception from stamping travel documents for holders of ordinary residence permits (as opposed to family member “Article 10″/”Article 20” residence cards).

However, in truth practice varies between member states.

So which countries stamp ordinary residence permit holders, and which ones don’t?

visas – Difference between electronic residence permit and common format residence permit for transit through the United Kingdom?

I am a Russian citizen and I am going from Italy to Bridgetown (Barbados) with a transit to London.

I will arrive at 11:05 p.m. at London Terminal 1 (LHR) with Alitalia Airlines and I will go to final destination the next day at 11:30 a.m. from London Terminal 3 (LHR) with Virgin Atlantic.

Will I need a transit visa for this route?

For the transit visa I have:

  • You arrive and leave by plane.
  • You have a confirmed continuous flight that leaves the day of your arrival or before midnight the day after your arrival.
  • You have the correct documents for your destination (for example a visa for this country).
  • You have a common format residence permit issued by a European Economic Area (EEA) country I DO NOT KNOW because I have a residence permit in Italy, but I do not know if it is an electronic residence permit (which is not acceptable to transit through immigration control without visa).

In Italian, my residence permit is called "Permesso di Soggiorno Elettronico". Please help me find the difference between the electronic residence permit and the others.

Australia – No residence for Australian visa application

I wish to apply for an Australian working holiday visa and one of the questions is my usual residence and request an address.
Here's the trick. I do not have a country or usual residence. I have lived the last 5 years in Australia on a student visa, so I think my country of residence (but I cannot put AU for a vacation visa in AU). I have not been in my passport country for more than 6 years and have only lived there as a baby. I'm currently in South Korea on a tourist visa where my parents recently immigrated temporarily, but we are still in a hotel, so I can't put the hotel address either.
So technically I have no country of residence. What does it put in the app?

Return to Italy on the Permesso di Soggiorno receipts / Residence permit with single entry visa

I have been in Italy since November on the type of employment visa D. When I came here and asked for the first issue of a residence permit, the date that tells me was given was June. Due to COVID-19, my date has been delayed by several months and continues to decrease. My original visa was a single entry visa and will therefore expire upon my exit. I am now in possession of receipts for the residence permit and my single entry visa. How to go out and return to Italy to visit the house?

Germany – Status in Spain with a German residence permit

Since you don't mention any EU family member, I guess you Aufenthaltserlaubnis, a residence allowed, rather than a Aufenthaltskarte, a residence menu.

Your 90/180 counter started when you left Germany. A Schengen residence permit allows the holder to spend up to 90 days over a period of 180 days in other Schengen countries. If you were in Spain for 90 days or more before the expiration of your German residence permit, you have exhausted the 90 days before its expiration.

As stated in the other answer, your German residence permit does not allow you to work in Spain. You should really consult an immigration lawyer for advice on the best course of action.

(If your document was really a Aufenthaltskarte it was then issued under European Union law on free movement due to a family member who is an EU citizen or a national of a country of the EEA or Switzerland. In this case, the above only applies if you have moved to Spain without a member of your family. If you have moved with a family member, there is no 90/180 limit.)

administrative formalities – The New Zealander resumes his work in Australia under COVID restrictions – what documents prove my residence?

I hold a New Zealand passport and have been living and working in Australia for about 7 months with a 12 month contract job which I believe will be extended upon completion.

With COVID19, I returned here (NZ) on March 20, 2020 to take care of my personal affairs and I have had the good fortune of working remotely since. As it would be prudent to stay here, my workplace will eventually require my presence on site in Australia. In preparing for this eventuality, I found the following site:

As of April 13, 2020, it indicates:

New Zealand citizens who normally reside in Australia (with a visa for subclass 444 or
other permanent or temporary visa) may come to Australia. You have to
have proof of residence (driving license or documents that show your
). Present it during check-in. You must undertake a
14-day quarantine in designated facilities (for example, a hotel),
your port of arrival.

My question is:
What documents will be classified as adequate to show my residence?

Facts – relevant or not:

  • I don't have an Australian driver's license (I have one in NZ, but I don't often drive in AU).
  • I have not had a rental contract or otherwise since the end of last year, I have been fortunate enough to stay with people since (save money).
  • My employment contract ends at the beginning of July 2020.
  • I can retrieve tax information, but it will just be printouts from online sources.
  • Ditto for the retirement pension.
  • I recently updated my health insurance account, but I don't have the physical card itself.
  • I have been going back and forth between NZ / AU with short term contracts and I have even graduated in the past.

Bureaucracy being what I want, I want to make sure I have at least the minimum required, if not, more, before wasting time and money on a flight that I will not be able to board.

I also found this:

But as for the "transaction reference number (TRN)", the "visa grant number" or the "visa proof number", I have no information.

I just enter Australia each time as a Kiwi using an electronic passport and I go …

germany – german residence – Travel Stack Exchange

From what you write, you had a license that allowed you to live and work in Germany, and also to visit other Schengen countries for 90 days out of 180.

Going to Spain to work could have made you an illegal immigrant from the first day you worked there, unless Spain has given you a work permit.

In addition to that comes Corona with travel restrictions.
