Re: Micro Chips on US Credit Cards

Just got a replacement Chase debit card and it is contactless. It even works on the new OMNY readers on the NYC Subway. No more swiping Metrocards at long last!

Re: Passports

There is. It's called TIMATIC and is used by the airlines to check travellers' documents validity for their journeys. It's what they use to decide whether to let you board or not. There's quite a...

Re: Young British family should we move to florida

As the children would be immigrating in the custody of a USC parent, doesn’t that mean that they automatically become US citizens on arrival? If so that means they would not require I-864...

Re: Can a relative with a criminal record affect my chances of a green card?

I can't see how any of that would make you inadmissible to the US as a visitor or immigrant. If your brother carried on a criminal career and became a prominent criminal, it's not impossible that...

Re: iPhone / iTunes related question.

Re: Best visa for me?

No, it's nothing to do with the GFA or Irish nationality per se, as the rules pertaining to what is, and isn't Ireland or Great Britain for the DV were in place before the GFA, and the DV is purely...

Re: First time travelling back to the UK as an expat - Checklist
