south korea – Purpose of travel for past trips on a d-2-8 visa

I’m applying for a D-2-8 visa (Summer school/short term study visa) to go South Korea.

One of the questions is what the purpose of visit was for my past travel history. I’ve been to England, France, Germany and The Netherlands on a school trip. I also frequently go on holidays to Germany.

So the question is: can I put ‘school trip’ as the ‘purpose of visit’ or should I put ‘tourism’?

Also since I went to Germany more than once during the last 5 years, should I put more than one date or the most recent date? And should I put ‘school trip + tourism’ under ‘purpose of visit’ for this country?

Another question is: I put ‘D-2-8 SHORT TERM STUDY VISA’ in the ‘2.2 Status of Stay’ section. Is that correct?

visas – Can my wife travel alone to France on EU settlement family permit?

The question appears to be about visas rather than COVID-19 travel restrictions. Your wife needs a separate visa to enter France.

Before the UK left the EU, she would have been able to travel to France using a “residence card of a family member of a union citizen.” But the EEA family permit (the document that was analogous to the EU Settlement Scheme family permit) did not confer an exemption from the visa requirement. Furthermore, the residence permit that she will eventually receive under the EUSS will not entitle her to enter the Schengen area without a visa, because the UK is no longer a member of the EU.

As others have noted, you should also pay close attention to COVID-19 travel restrictions, both those imposed by France and those imposed by the UK.

air travel – How to book a United Airlines ticket if my passport doesn’t have a last name?

For US Visa puporses, it looks like you need to use your single name as “last name” and FNU as first name. FNU means “first name unknow”. See https://in.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/ FAQ section. It’s likely that United will adopt the same process since they need to communicate booking data and Visa data to US immigration authorities. However, you should call and ask them to confirm.

However, it’s likely that you will run into a lot of issues and if possible you should try to get your Indian passport fixed before you travel. https://redbus2us.com/surname-blank-in-passport-first-name-as-fnu-in-us-visa-issues-solution/

Currently in a UK red list country. Can I travel to a country that’s not in red list and then travel to UK?

I am a student in UK. I am currently in a red list country and the Hotel Quarantine is too expensive. If i travel to a country that is not on the red list for 2 weeks and then travel to UK, will it be a problem?

air travel – What can you do to preserve a second-leg ticket if you notice that you are not going to be able to fly the first leg?

Recently I learned the hard way that Not flying the first leg of the journey – Company cancels the second-leg ticket, since companies do not allow to fly only the second flight. This is also something IATA explains in Coupon sequence and use.

I was flying from a city in Spain to a city in Portugal with TAP Air Portugal on a return ticket.

When about to take the first leg of the ticket we were several people, including my wife, our little baby and me. We did the check-in online, with my baby attached to my place (she is few months old, so she does not have a seat on her own).
When in the airport we went to the baggage drop area and were asked for the passports; we showed the ‘libro de familia’ (family book) that works to fly in a domestic flight in Spain, but they told us that is not enough to fly within the European Union. Since the baby did not have a passport, she could not fly.
After some discussion, my wife opted to stay with the baby (she needs breastfeeding, something I cannot give :P) and solve the issue, while I took the flight (to minimize the loss of money). Also, I had to redo the checking, since the baby was not flying with me anymore and I was given a ticket on my own.

So the schema is: leg 1, me flying, while my wife and baby staying.

Next day, my wife solved the problem and her and the baby flied to the city in Portugal with the same company.

Some days later we went to the airport in Portugal to take the second leg of the return ticket. To our surprise, my wife’s ticket had been cancelled because ‘she had not taken the first leg of the flight’. We had to buy another ticket for her and finally made it home.

I was quite curious about my baby not having to pay again for the ticket, since she already missed the first leg of the journey. However, my main question is: what can I do in the future to preserve the second-leg ticket if I notice that I am not going to be able to fly the first leg?

I assume this can be easily (and costly) solved with days in advance by changing your ticket. However, my question is about this happening while you are already in the airport and the flight is about to leave, without you in it.

france – Intra-Schengen travel in April 2021

In terms of visa, it shouldn’t be an issue as long as the visa is valid (and ideally that the “main purpose” of your travel remains in the country which issued the visa), though expect passport/visa checks while travelling between Greece and France, contrary to normal Schengen rules.

However, in terms of the ever-changing Covid restrictions:

  • France is currently under lockdown. All bars, restaurants, museums, malls, non-essential shops, etc. are closed.

  • You are not allowed to travel within France.

  • You need to have a PCR test less than 72 hours old

  • You need to present a signed declaration

I believe Iceland is no longer under lockdown, but they do have a quarantine regime in place. Italy is in lockdown.

Basically, definitely not the right time to do sightseeing…
