indian citizens – Does one need a visa to transfer between two airports during a transit through the Schengen area?

Yes, you will need a visa to enter France and travel between the airports. What’s more, an airport transit visa (type A) will not do; rather you need a short-stay visa (type C) – if the application form asks about your travel purpose, you select transit.

On another note, travel between the airports is very convenient. For 21 euros, you can book a direct shuttle bus (line 3), which runs every 20 minutes and takes 75 minutes between the airports

No transit visa in London when traveling from Canada – still valid during COVID?

I and my husband will be traveling from Canada to Russia and back through London Heathrow (long layovers both ways). We have Canadian study and work permits and we are Russian citizens. Normally, with a Canadian permit, we would be able to leave the airport without a transit visa and go to London if we have a second leg of the flight within 24 hours. Does this rule still apply during COVID times or was it changed?

Does anyone know if Indonesia is infact allowing foreigners to apply for the short term tourist visa starting from September?

I heard in the news that Indonesia is opening up tourism in September and foreigners will be able to apply for the tourist visa in September. However, I can’t seem to find any such information on the Indonesian Embassy’s website in Germany or any other website that can either confirm or deny the information, which increased my skepticism about the original fact. Does anyone know if Indonesia is infact allowing foreigners to apply for the short term tourist visa starting from September?

uk – Is Monzo bank statement acceptable for tier 4 visa application

The only criteria that the UK government issues to travellers for financial documents is very broad:

  1. Other documents you may want to provide – all visitors

This section provides guidance on the types of documents that you may want to provide to help us consider your application against the Immigration Rules.

  • financial documents showing that you have sufficient funds available. These must clearly show that you have access to the funds, such as:
    bank statements

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/visitor-visa-guide-to-supporting-documents/guide-to-supporting-documents-visiting-the-uk

Your application will be judged on its merit – UK immigration deals with bank statements and other financial statements from an extremely diverse range of sources and will have means at their disposal to evaluate their accuracy and authenticity as a result.

I see no reason why documents from a specific bank would not be accepted so long as they pass the desired scrutiny.

usa – Visa extension due to COVID-19

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services website (1) states that:

Most nonimmigrants can mitigate the immigration consequences of COVID-19 by timely filing an application for extension of stay (EOS) or change in status (COS). U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services continues to accept and process applications and petitions, and many of our forms are available for online filing.

Essentially, if you are unable to return to your home country because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, you can apply for an extension to your visa albeit in a timely manner. The website also states that

Nonimmigrants generally do not accrue unlawful presence while the timely-filed, non-frivolous EOS/COS application is pending.

This information is also corroborated by other websites, such as OnlineVisa (2) and Quartz (3), who also say that you can extend your stay by applying for the EOS or COS.

However, according to the US State Department (4) the Visa Waiver Program only applies to 39 countries, which does not include Trinidad and Tobago. Therefore, his best option would be to apply for the EOS or COS in a timely manner and get an extension of 30 days.

Can I apply for a UK visa from outside home country?

Unfortunately, you can only apply for a limited list of UK visas outside your country of residence, which does not include the Ancestry visa.

You can make applications for a visit visa, a short-term study visa, an EEA family permit, Tier 5 (Creative and Sporting), Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) and Global Talent entry clearance in any visa application centre, British diplomatic mission or consular post overseas where entry clearance applications are accepted.

Applications for other types of entry clearance should be made in the country in which you are living.

A normal strategy for antipodeans in your situation is to apply for a working holiday visa in a European country which grants them to Australians, such as France or Ireland, and then apply for your UK visa from there. But if your UK visa expires in a few days, you don’t really have enough time to do this, and most of these programmes seem to be suspended due to the pandemic anyway. Unfortunately returning to Australia is likely your only option.
