Q&A: I’m traveling abroad for the first time. How do I check into immigration?

Question by Shannon: I’m traveling abroad for the first time. How do I check into immigration?
I’m an American soon traveling to Costa Rica. I’ve never traveled internationally before and am getting nervous about the details at the airports, what to do with my passport, what to “claim,” etc. Can anyone provide me with a step-by-step guide (with tips) on leaving the U.S. and entering Costa Rica, and vice versa?

STEP 1 : DO NOT WORRY ELSE YOU WILL END UP DOING THE WRONG THINGS!!!!

STEP 2: Keep your PAssport with Visa / Travel Insurance/ Foreign Exchange / Ticket in a folder which is in person.

STEP 3: Inside the airport, locate the airline you are flying with. Get your luggage checked-in(the airline staff will put stickers on ur luggage and hand over the boarding pass to you).

STEP 4: Immigration counter is closeby. Just produce your passport/ticket etc and wait and smile. They will do the checking and if they need to ask you anything regardng your travel, they will ask and you can tell. They will stamp on your passport that you are ‘cleared’.

STEP 5: Wait to board your flight in the waiting lounge.

STEP 6: Look and hear for announcements for your flight. It is nice to remember the flight number on your ticket.

STEP 7: Board your flight

STEP 8: Bon Voyage!!!!!!!!

All the best! Have a safe flight and enjoy Cost Rica!

Traveling to Mexico’s “Free Zone”?

Question by gatorpicturetaker: Traveling to Mexico’s “Free Zone”?
I am currently visiting San Diego and planning on going to Tijuana and Rosarito in the “free zone” for a day or two. Do I need to get an FMT when I get there? And, more importantly, what is necessary to return to the US? I have my SS card, birth certificate, and driver’s license, but no passport. Are the passport regulations in effect if I’m just in the free zone? And, if I need it and don’t have it, what happens — am I stuck in Mexico permenently (“man without a country” style)?

TIA!

While I’m not sure what the free zone is (I live in Baja) you won’t need a passport til 1/08. You don’t need a tourist permit unless you plan to stay longer than 72 hours. Get that passport, everyone needs one.

Q&A: Is a U.S. passport required for Puerto Rican citizens traveling to the U.S.?

Question by Jenn: Is a U.S. passport required for Puerto Rican citizens traveling to the U.S.?
I am getting married in three months (6-20-09) and have family members that are going to travel from Puerto Rico to the U.S. for the wedding.

I am a U.S. citizen and I don’t need a passport to travel to P.R. but does my family need a passport to travel here?
I know that Puerto Rico is a commonwealth but are they considered “U.S. citizens”?
I wasn’t sure if they were considered actual “U.S. citizens” due to the fact that they can’t vote in a Presidential election.

Answer by I <3 bobby
I don’t think you need a u.s. passport, because you can only get them in the united states. I really don’t know much about it, but go to www.blackle.com and see. It is an energy-saving search engine.
You might have to ask the person at wherever you got your passport or are getting your passport from.

Q&A: Traveling to Cozumel–official passport?

Question by Jess: Traveling to Cozumel–official passport?
I recently separated from active duty last year, but I am inactive reserve and have an ID. My tourist travel passport has expired, but I still have my “official” passport for the government.

Does anyone think there would be a huge issue if I traveled with it instead of having to get a new tourist one?

Best answer:

Answer by trvllady
Your government issued passport is your official identification. You will be fine traveling with it as a civilian.

I’m going from London to Scotland, Scotland to Dublin, and back to London over the course of two weeks. My question is – is it considered international traveling to go between these three places? Do I need to show up the recommended 3 hours before my flight to do passport/customs stuff?

Q&A: Where are this summer’s “hip” hotspots for internationally traveling post-uni grads on a budget?

Question by classicgibson48: Where are this summer’s “hip” hotspots for internationally traveling post-uni grads on a budget?
I’ve been to Morocco, Ibiza and Goa. They’re old news. I wanna grab my passport(US), my guitar, a mid-sized pack and $ 3000 to last up to 3 months. A location where I might pick up a few gigs or where street musicians are still welcome is a plus! I toured all over Spain this Summer. Spain just ain’t the same since they outlawed roaming street musicians. For example, Barcelona’s streets used to come alive at 11pm every night, and party ’till dawn. No more! Starting last year only a few musicians get permits to play, and they are assigned a “performance spot” on the sidewalk. All the tourists who used to cruise the Rambla and drink/party at the “Botella” bonfires on the beach all night are now herded into bars and nightclubs by the Gardia Urbana before midnight. Most other major Spanish cities have done this too, Malaga being the exception. Madrid is somewhere in between. Are there free and laidback places left??Please share your secret places with me. I may never get this chance again!!
