International Travel 2021

This post is intended as a place for discussions about International Travel ONLY.

For more information and previous discussions on the topic, please see International Travel 2020 and International Travel 2019.

In this International Travel 2021 post, the information is identical to the International Travel 2020 post. We added a new post for 2021 in order to keep the discussion manageable. Please help us by sticking to the topic of International Travel only.

====

From 2020: We have updated our main International Travel section. It features:

  1. List of Schengen Nations (allowing entry to registrants);
  2. Resources (including a CA DOJ Travel Notification Form); and
  3. User Submitted Travel Reports.

This post is linked from the Main Menu at the top of the site.

1. The 26 Schengen Nations (which allow registrants to visit)

As an agreement, Schengen was signed among the five out of ten countries of the European Union members back then, on the 14th June 1985. Under the Schengen agreement, travelling from one Schengen country to another is done without any passport and immigration controls or any other formalities previously required.

Note: US Citizens are visa exempt when visiting the Schengen area for up to 90 days in a 180 day period (List of Countries, Section B or map).  The European Commission is proposing creating a European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) for such travelers, beginning sometime in 2021 – which may or may not take criminal convictions into account.

Here is a video regarding this individuals international process. https://youtu.be/j2eq9AhPc9k

Hey, I just renewed my expired passport that I had before my conviction and it recently came in the mail without any mark. I plan to take a trip this summer and actually already bought a ticket to France. Is there a chance it will be revoked before my upcoming trip or only after? Since I just paid for it do I have to pay for a new one when it is revoked or is it free since it is their mistake not mine? I shouldn’t have to pay for an omission on their part. Thanks

Part 2 of Internation Megans Law Travel

My travel to Thailand.

Hi all,
Was wondering if anybody has been successful in moving to Europe for retirement? I see people on here moving to Europe for work and living there, but what if you just want to retire? We’d love to move to Portugal but not sure about the criminal background check requirement for long term residence? Wonder if a spouse can get residency first and then marry and bring the spouse with the RO background to join later? do you have to pass a background check for marriage to move to Europe?
Has anybody ever heard of anybody successful at this?
