問到馬其頓免簽了! One less visa to apply

Posted on

傍晚接到外交部來電時,我還以為我大概會是第一個知道馬其頓再次給台灣免簽的台灣人,不過剛才看了外交部網站似乎是也不是。

從頭道來。波蘭朋友Pawel幫我問了可惡的馬其頓大使館問了很久,2012/3/31時說,好消息哇!他寫信去ambrmwar@zigzag.pl,終於得到了消息:

I just want to inform you that the Government of the Republic of Macedonia few days ago took a decision for temporary (from April 1, 2012 till March 31, 2013) abolishing of the visas for the holders of passport of Taiwan Read the rest of this entry

Serbia/Macedonia/BiH visas截至2012/3/30整理

Sometimes visa application matters force me to want to use four-letter words.  Just sometimes.

(這篇請念出來,每念到一個句號酌加一至三個_字。)

我實在覺得很煩了。整理一下。

Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) 波赫: Read the rest of this entry

BiH, Macedonia, Serbia簽證在波蘭辦?

Posted on

A couple of days ago I Skyped-out, with a very swollen throat, to the Bosnia and Herzegovina Embassy in Warsaw, Poland.  While I know that theoretically a Taiwanese can apply in Hungary for the respective visas of Serbia (塞爾維亞), BiH (short for Bosnia and Herzegovina 波士尼亞及赫塞哥維亞,簡稱波赫) and Macedonia (馬其頓), I’d rather play it safe. 畢竟我的申根90天如果照我排的進度,是用到87天滿滿的,剩下3天就是要拿來作任何突發狀況的緩衝-等簽證啦、在東歐飛南美時如果有什麼曲折啦(最好是 沒有啦,千拜託萬拜託),總是小心點好。即使可以避進Romania或Bulgaria,嘿,如果這二國突然從半申根變成全申根呢?

The first lady that picked up the phone swiftly transferred my call to an English-speaking lady.  I slowly and concisely articulated my identity, using only “Taiwan” and emphatically not “China.” She checked some facts about me, and the verdict is simple: Read the rest of this entry

Just called the Serbia Embassy in Warsaw

Posted on

I wrote to The Embassy of Serbia in Warsaw on March the 1st.  Haven’t got a response.

Just now I made an internet phone call to them.  The first guy speaks only Serbian and Polish.  After hearing me saying very slowly “English” and “visa,” he transferred my call to a female colleague, whose English is.. slightly better.

In the end Read the rest of this entry

Rough plans for Colombia, Ecuador and Peru (in this order)

Posted on

I’ll spend four weeks in Colombia and three in Ecuador.)

If possible, I do wish to avoid high (or at least peak) season so that things won’t become too expensive.

I think I have to do Peru in November (i.e., AFTER arriving in Colombia in mid-September and continuing to Ecuador), since if I go directly to Peru from Europe, I’ll likely have visa problems with Chile and Argentina.  In any case it’ll be much safer for me to try to sort that out ONE COUNTRY IN ADVANCE (like in Ecuador).

Since the only thing in Peru that I feel I need to see but haven’t is Machu Picchu, I’ll limit my stay in Peru (mainly Lima) for roughly 2 weeks or a bit more than that; I’ll plan the flights to and back from Cuzco (with round-trip trains from somewhere to Aguas Calientes) at the middle of the stay, preferably not too close to my direct flight to Easter Island

2012/2/6對OneWorld RTW ticket重新思考..

Posted on

本來走 Tirana/Budapest/Madrid/Bogota,
如果改TIA/London/MAD/BOG會有London分成LGW和LHR的問題。

查了一下,Albania周邊國家(如Sofia, Bulgaria)沒什麼轉機簡單的點,多半還是會飛到London(雙機場)轉。

有一個可能是:Dubrovnik會直飛Madrid,而Madrid本來就會直飛Bogota。

可是,如果直接查Dubrovnik (DBV) => Bogota,仍然都會是三段(至四段),例如
DBV/LON (雙機場)/MAD/BOG,
DBV/MAD/LIM (Lima)/BOG,
DBV/MAD/SCL/BOG

後面二者感覺都蠻蠢的,因為會先飛到Lima或Santiago
– 先飛到Lima的話如果就從Peru開始玩,那要跑到Colombia又繞路;
而且萬一在Lima辦Chile簽證不順利就完蛋了;
– 先飛到Santiago那一定不能入境智利,因為沒簽證。

小小確認:關於Chile visa

Posted on

雖然其實已經知道結果,不過還是打電話去確認一下。

確認結果:核發簽證後,90天內要入境。

(不過根據他們網頁所寫,自2012/2/1起申請智簽免簽證費。(可能僅限 Read the rest of this entry
