usa – Can an American travel to France through the UK with a negative Covid test?

In October with the latest Covid travel restrictions update, is the flight Boston > London > Paris possible for a US Citizen in possession of a <72h negative Covid test ?
Do I instead have to quarantine in the UK for 14 days and then go to France ?
I have an AirBnB planned in France for longer than 14 days in which I will be quarantining upon arrival

usa – UK US tax treaty J1 visa Article 20: Do researchers count as “professors or teachers”?

I’m in the US doing research, and from the UK. I’d like to claim the UK-US tax exemption. I think that I am eligble, as my role is completely research based. However my HR department isn’t sure as I’m not technically a “professor” or “teacher” (the language stated in the tax treaty, although neither term is defined in the document). Other people I know at different institutions seem to be sure that I qualify. Can anyone provide a reference for me to show to my HR department to convince them.

Thanks,
Michael

usa – Can US citizen transit in Schiphol enroute to UK? (two questions)

  1. My US wife obtained spouse visa for UK however flights to Manchester, UK from Detroit seem to transit in Amsterdam. Can my US wife transit Amsterdam enroute to UK? Information on US.gov seems to just say transit through Amsterdam is allowed if final destination is outside the EU, and it’s up to the Dutch authorities to decide to allow onward travel to UK.

  2. We found another flight from Detroit to Heathrow with a stop in JFK. If my wife lands in Heathrow, I could drive down and pick her up however it’s a 4-5 hour drive from Liverpool. Would this cause issues at the border for her – the fact she is going to self-isolate in a location 250 miles away? We are not making any stops however I do think Border Force would take issue with this.

Finally, if anybody has made the journey recently from the States to the UK could you please give some advice on how you did it and where your layover was, and if you had any issues. We used to regularly fly Detroit to Manchester with a stop in JFK or Philadelphia however no flights with this route seem to be available.

Thanks.

usa – You can do US roaming using a prepaid SIM card from elsewhere. Are roaming charges normally deducted from your balance within a few minutes?

Background information (you can skip this)

I’m in Canada. I buy prepaid cellphone service from Chatr, which is owned by Rogers Communications.

I’m planning to visit the US.

Chatr’s US data-roaming rates are somewhat tolerable. For a one-week trip, if I’m frugal with my data use, paying for data roaming may be cheaper than switching to a US SIM card.

My question

With some postpaid cellular carriers, it may take up to 120 days for roaming charges to appear on your bill.

When roaming in the US using a prepaid SIM, I wonder how long it will normally take for roaming charges to be deducted from your prepaid balance. Will this normally happen within a few minutes or less?

I’m not asking about Chatr specifically. Instead, I’m asking for general information about how long these kinds of things take. (If I wanted a specific answer regarding Chatr, I could phone customer service.)

Notes

I’ve tried some Google searches, but am still not sure what the answer is.

I’ve started a meta discussion about my question.

I’ve also cross-posted my question to a thread on the Chatr sub-Reddit.

usa – US visa has a different DOB from the passport

Hi I have had a us visa for a few years and have only recently travelled for work purposes and back again a few times for a couple of years now.

The problem is that I didn’t start to use the visa until 5 years after it had been issued and have only just horrifyingly discovered that it has a different date of birth on it than in my passport.

I am truly worried about what the embassy are going to say and think when I tell them about it. Are they are going to be very angry and cancel my visa as I have used it to enter the US.

This has been a truly honest mistake and I know that I should of discovered this before now can someone out there please share any advice or experiences of similar circumstances? I’m so worried that I’m not going to be able to use the visa anymore and could end up in trouble.

usa – I-539 Visa Extension Question

My husband is an American citizen, we filled the I-130 in May 2020. I came to visit him in March using my tourism visa. However, I was supposed to return in April to Colombia (my home country) but I haven’t been able to return because the border is closed due to COVID-19. So, in July I filled the I-539 online to extend my tourism visa.

I am really worried because my last day on my I-94 is SEP-16, and the border is still closed. On SEP-19, Colombia might open the border but it is not sure. I had a return flight booked for SEP-6 but it was also canceled. USCIS has not answered my visa extension, they can take up to 5 months. Should I update my I-539 application with a new letter explaining that the flight for SEP-6 was also canceled? Do you think that if I overstay this is going to affect my I-130 application? Is there someone in the same situation as me? Has somebody applied for a visa extension?

usa – Will US Customs and Border Patrol allow my girlfriend (UK Citizen) to come help me recover from surgery (covid-19)?

Earlier this year she did a 14-day layover in Bermuda to travel from the UK to the US and that worked fine. She wants to come back in November to help me recover from surgery. I have a letter from the doctor’s office.

Anyone heard of people doing this in past few months?
