For a 30 day multiple entry visa, can your return flight be after 30 days?


by @theunisk | 5yr  | 3 comments

I am heading to Istanbul soonโ€ฆ I have a multiple entry visa valid for a 30 day stay within a 180 day period. I intend to spend a week or so in Istanbul and then travel onward, eventually returning to Istanbul in October for my return flight. So I will not be there for longer than 30 days - but I donโ€™t yet have any proof of an onward journey as I would prefer to keep my plans flexible. Could this cause any trouble?

I like to minimize my stress when dealing with immigration, so Iโ€™d just book a fully refundable ticket for Day 29 out of the country. If you need an alternative, try www.onwardflights.com. I havenโ€™t used them myself, but Iโ€™ve heard good things about their service.

Thanks @yanokwa I will look into that. Which airline(s) do you usually use to book a refundable ticket?

Iโ€™d recommend using on the largest airline that flies to that country (e.g., Delta/KLM/Air France) instead of small budget airlines that may have hidden fees that you may not find out about.

I optimize for airlines that are based in English speaking countries so if I have to call to fight about something, I can do so in my native language.

Iโ€™d recommend you use a credit card I can issue a chargeback if something goes wrong.

Some airlines let you cancel fares up to 24 hours before you fly, so you could book on your 29th day, but again, I like to minimize the chance of things going wrong.

How do I ensure that getting refused entry to the UK won't keep me from getting an Australian 462 (work and holiday) visa?


in Australia by @allisonkirschbaum | 1yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

On New Yearโ€™s Day this year, I was refused entry to the UK due to not having proof of funds, an outward-bound plane ticket (I was road-tripping out with a friend via car) and not being able to prove that I had indeed canceled the lease on the apartment I had leased during a prior recent trip.

I havenโ€™t had any entry issues to any of the several countries Iโ€™ve visited after, but now Iโ€™m applying for a 462 visa (work and holiday) visa in Australia, and since Australia and the UK share an immigration info system, I want to make sure getting refused entry wonโ€™t keep me from getting a visa. None of the issues that cropped up in the UK (the proof of funds, the plane ticket, and the apartment) will be an issue in Australia, as Iโ€™ve never traveled there before, donโ€™t know anyone and will have proof of more than sufficient funds for the trip and an outbound plane ticket.

Anybody have any suggestions on how to make the approval process go as smoothly as possible?

Many thanks in advance! :smiley:

Cheapest flight path to Bali from West Coast, US?


by @metamas | 3yr 3 years ago | 2 comments

Iโ€™m making plans to travel from Portland, OR to Canggu, Bali in a little over a month. Looking around at flights now. Can anyone lend experience on the most affordable flight path (airports and airlines) to take?

I subscribe to Scottโ€™s Cheap Flights, but nothing obvious has shown up in that direction (Portland, OR -> Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam -> Bali ???). Iโ€™ve so far just been looking with Google Flights + Momondo. Any other tips from more experienced travelers are much appreciated.

If youโ€™ll be in Canggu Sep/Oct, Iโ€™ll return any favors with tasty eats and cold drinks :tropical_drink: :stew: :blush:

After extending a Philippines tourist visa, can you leave the country and come back in on that visa?


in Philippines by @kaizenpreneur | 3yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hello,

Iโ€™m in the Philippines currently on a the standard 30 day tourist visa. Iโ€™m planning on spending an extended period of time here with the odd joint here and there around S.E.Asia.

I am aware that you can now extend your visa in 60 day blocks without leaving the country. However, if i were to extend it by 60 days and then decide I want to leave for a few days to another country.

Would exiting the country then null and void that visa and when I return I would start again on the 30-day tourist visa. Or does it allow multi-entry?

Just trying to work out whether it is worth paying for the extension or itโ€™s better to try and fit any trips out within the 30 day periods that I get.

One side point is that I am interested in getting the photo ID card which I believe you get after a couple of extensions which may allow me to open a local bank account.

It would be great to hear from anyone in a similar position as this or who has experience with this.

Thanks in advance

Jon

How do you work without multiple monitors? I can only carry a MBP 15"

 

by @tschentscher | 4yr 3 years ago | 39 comments

Hi Nomads!

Starting January 2016 Iโ€™m going to be starting a year as a Digital Nomad.
The last 5 years Iโ€™ve never worked with less than 2 monitors in front of me.
Sure, Iโ€™ve done some cafรฉ and hotel-room work. But all my biggest project has all been done in front of a stationary setup.

I do webdesign and development and have created a working habbit with several monitors on a large desk. Funny enough this is my biggest concern getting closer to January.

How do i teach myself to work from a 15" screen?
Do you find working from a 15" screen enough or do you have some kind of magical folding screen in your backpack?

If you have any ideas for me keeping a dual-monitor setup (The laptop being the first monitor) Iโ€™m all ears!

Regards! And thank you for this delightful Forum!

Hi Guys,

Iโ€™ve tried some coworkings but it works out really expensive for just four days. Does anyone know of anywhere I can try and hot desk for a few days for a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance,

How to find flights if I don't know my destination?


by @yago1 | 4yr 4 years ago | 12 comments

Hi fellow DNโ€™s
Iโ€™m searching for a DN โ€œlast minuteโ€ type website / service out there?
Maybe something similar to travelzoo.com and skyscanner.com or tripalertz.com but with more focus for DNโ€™s ? What I mean is I donโ€™t really care about the location - if I go to Mexico, Canada or Shanghai. If there is a good deal I might be seriously interested.
Maybe there is nothing like this yet in that case it would be something interesting to create.

Where's home? Where do you return to?


by @magalhini | 4yr 4 years ago | 10 comments

Hi there!

Iโ€™m sorry if this question has been asked before, whether in disguise or directly, but I couldnโ€™t find its own dedicated topic and I find it very interesting to talk about.

One of my issues with the remote working world is the lack of knowledge of where to return to. After a one/two/ten month stint living and working somewhere else (say Airbnbโ€™ing or a short let, meaning a place that is NOT yours by any means), where do you return to?

  • Do most nomads own a place that you rent while you travel?
  • If not, is this something that you consider doing?
  • Do you return to your home country before deciding where to go next? Or do you jump directly somewhere new?
  • And when you return, do you find the need to be in a personal, private space? (ie, not sharing with strangers 24/7 365 days a year)

Speaking for myself, Iโ€™ve gotten rid of my apartment in Portugal 2 years ago and moved to London simply for the pursuit of new and interesting opportunities. Iโ€™m now, at last, working remotely and I plan on working and living for a few weeks/months in random European cities, but not knowing where to return after to after thisโ€ฆ is killing me! (I still own too many possessions to carry in a backpack. Not too many, but moving is a hassle).

  • Those of you who travel without a set of keys on you, how do you deal with this thought? Iโ€™m really curious to get to know your views on this.

Thanks in advance. This forum has helped me a lot convincing me that this is a leap I need to make sooner or later :slight_smile: cheers!

Have you obtained a Thai single entry visa in AU as a non-AU citizen?


by @sarab | 4yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Hi guys,

Iโ€™m planning to spend a month in Australia before 3-4 months in Thailand, and was wondering if anyone has any experience of applying for the single entry Thai tourist visa in Australia while being a citizen of another country. I ask because in the UK, for example, they wonโ€™t give you that visa unless you are a UK resident, and I wonโ€™t be an OZ resident then.

I will be travelling before that so cannot apply in my home country.

I am aware of the Penang option, but I am specifically asking about this scenario.

Any feedback would be gratefully received!

How does the UK visitor visa work when I come and go multiple times a year?


by @kellyreid | 4yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

Hey Nomads, I run a subscription site in the gaming industry (Magic: The Gathering to be exact) and I have a number of friends in the UK that I like to visit frequently. Iโ€™m American, so I can get a 6-month visa just by showing up at the border.

Iโ€™m 2 months into a 3 month stay here, and I just found out that I need to come back about a month after I leave.

My question is, how is the 6-month period calculated? My assumption was that I cannot spend more than 6 months in any given 12-month period in the UK on my visa. I am asking because I intend to come back to the UK after spending the winter somewhereโ€ฆwarmer :slight_smile:

Iโ€™m trying to sort out whether I can come back in early 2017, as I have work obligations in Ireland in February and would love to piggyback onto that trip.

Does anyone have experience with this visa and comings-and-goings? I donโ€™t want to risk screwing up and getting in trouble and jeopardizing my ability to enter the UK in the future, so Iโ€™d like to get some proper guidance on this.

Digital work in return for lodgings and food?


by @tuesdaygroup | 5yr 4 years ago | 18 comments

Hi Everyone,

Iโ€™m myself a digital nomad. So this is a nomad 2 nomad question

It seems to be a popular trend for people to live and work on local farms in returns for daily meals and lodgings. (Southern Portugal)

Typically for 1-3 months periods

My Question
Iโ€™m just purely throwing out an idea here. But would any digital nomads be interested in a similar deal ?. Digital work in return for lodgings and food??

Im interested to hear peoples feelings on this one, be it good or bad! I understand this wouldnt be for everyone but a might be appealing to others?

Thanks for reading my question. If any nomads are interested right off the bat feel free to drop me a PM for further details.

Anyone have experience with in-flight wifi when crossing the ocean?


by @karlbecker_com | 5yr 4 years ago | 13 comments

Iโ€™m curious about a few airlines, but Iโ€™ll ask about China Airlines since thatโ€™s my most upcoming long haul flight.

  • Does it stay connected for the duration of the flight?
  • Will there be any hope that I might be able to do real-time voice on it?
  • Iโ€™ll do text chat most of the time, but are any ports closed on it? I imagine Iโ€™ll use a VPN

Anything else I should be aware of?

Thanks!

Coming from a visa exempt EU country can I extend my stay in Thailand for 30 days or not?


in Thailand by @alexlielacher | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

I have just been reading up on the new Thai visa situation and I am very confused as to whether I can extend my โ€˜visa exempt 30 days stay" by another 30 days at a local immigration office whilst already in Thailand or not? According to the Austrian Foreign ministry website I cannot but then several recently updated travel blogs say you can? And visa runs seem to be more or less out of the question now since the authorities are crackinโ€™ down on that since the Bangkok attacks?

Any EU Europeans had any recent experience with that? Just want to make sure I can avoid trouble.

Does the 30 days extension on the Visa Exemption count against the 90 days in six months rule in Thailand?


in Thailand by @gui | 5yr 4 years ago | 1 comment

My fiancรฉe(who is British) is on her second 30 days visa exemption in Thailand. Weโ€™re considering getting the visa exemption extension for 30 days and staying longer.

Our only worry is: Does this mean we would hit 90 days in total? We need to return in March to fly home from Bangkok. We are worried weโ€™d be refused entry in March as they might count the visa exemption extension against us.

Any advice is appreciated!

Cheers

Can I use my dual citizenship to enter Thailand with a 30-day visa and use the 3x 60 day visa on my other passport?


in Thailand by @sarab | 5yr 5 years ago | 9 comments

Hi everyone,
Iโ€™m looking for some advice from people who are dual citizens. I hold dual Italian and British citizenship and I want to visit Thailand later this year. I was planning to get a 3 x 60 visa on my Brit passport, but it looks like I might need to travel out of Thailand a month after first arriving there. I donโ€™t really want to burn one of my 60 day entries like that so I thought, what if I first enter with my Italian passport and just get the normal 30 day visa on arrival? Then when i return I can use my first 60 day on the Brit passport.
does any one have experience of this and is it doable/OK?

Many thanks!
Sara

FYI: Protests in Kuala Lumpur on 29 and 30 August 2015


in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @liztai | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Hello everyone,
Not a question per se but just a note to those of you in Kl this month. There will be a huge protest called Bersih at the end of the month. You have the rare opportunity to see democracy in action. Still, do be careful as the police here are tear gas happy so be armed with water n salt if you are out and about the city on that day.

there may be road blocks and traffic jams too.

For more info

Malaysians are a friendly bunch so you will not get any problems from them.

The police, on the other handโ€ฆ

How do multiple entry visas work in practice?


by @opt | 5yr 5 years ago | 4 comments

Can someone explain how multiple entry visas are used to extend a stay beyond their designated term?

For example, see:

http://www.immivietnamvisa.com/vietnam-visa-guide/single-entry-vietnam-visa-vs-multiple-entry-vietnam-visa/

This presents the definition that I understood to be the caseโ€“the clock starts running on your first entry, and any exits and re-entries donโ€™t change that. (You still only have 60 or 90 days, or whatever, โ€œsince your registered arrival date.โ€)

Same here:

http://thaiembdc.org/consular-services/tourist-visas/category-tr/

I canโ€™t find any official information about how the start date is somehow โ€œresetโ€ to the most recent entry date which, if Iโ€™ve understood everything Iโ€™ve read correctly, is what most people are doing/recommending.

In other words, how does a normal 60-day tourist visa, which can be extended for another 30 days, get turned into a 6-month stay with the multiple entry option? (Which again, I read as only permitting exits during the designated time, not multiplying the length of the stay in some way.)

Iโ€™ve read a ton of writing about the general topic, but this is one of those areas that tends to be glossed over, or referred to only in passing.

Do I need an onward ticket to enter Bali (in 30 or 60 days?)


by @gonchs | 5yr 5 years ago | 8 comments

I plan to enter Bali for 30 days with visa on arrival and then extend my stay for another 30, making it 60 in total.

Should the date of flight on onward ticket be 30 days after the day of arrival or can it also be in 60 days (30 initial + 30 extension)? My logic is that at the day of arrival, Iโ€™ll only have a permission to stay 30 days in the country and not 60, so it would make sense for them to ask me for a proof of a ticket to that date and in not 60 days.

How do I change my Thailand single entry visa to a double or triple entry visa?


in Thailand by @travelingtoad | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

I picked up my Thailand visa today. I wanted a double or triple entry visa but forgot to specify this in my application. This is my first visa ever and thus a rookie mistake. I told the lady who gave me my visa that I had made a mistake and asked how I could get a double instead. She was of zero help unfortunately and said maybe next time.

But I know there is a way! Any help is greatly appreciated. I fly out on Friday, July 3 so my time is kind of limited although I can apply for a visa and pick it up just 2 days later.
