Before You Leave For Vietnam

I have learned my lessons from my past travels so I came up with this list of to dos before I travel out of the country.  It was not cheap to forget some of these things in the list.

Hopefully, this post will help you travelers in a way.

How I Got My South Korea Tourist Visa in Dallas, Texas, USA?

I also asked myself how I did that.  I was surprised as well.  As I am not a resident of United States of America, I took a chance to apply for a tourist visa at the South Korea Consulate in Dallas, Texas and fortunately I was provided a single entry which is valid for 90 days.

How I got my Schengen Visa?

I almost did not pursue my application for a Euro Zone (Schengen Visa) from the French Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan due to several factors. There were so many reasons not to. First, the French guy who scheduled my interview was not helpful enough with the questions I asked him, and he was downright RUDE at times during our phone conversation. La French! Second, he told me that it will take at least two weeks to find out if I will even be eligible to get a visa. Third, I called around September 20 and I was given an interview schedule on the 1st of October. I asked the French guy if he can re-schedule to make it earlier, since I was running up against a tight vacation planning schedule. You know what he said?  “We are not a MARKET to do that”. Darn this French Guy, who does he think he is, Sarkozy? I had heard and so assumed that most of the French are rude, but this was beyond being subtle.

List of countries that provide visas upon arrival to Filipinos

Urrgh!  It really frustrates me when I can’t even go to a country that I’d like to visit because of the Visa issue.  I planned to go to Santorini, Greece this coming October and I need a Schengen Visa to enter.  Because of my nationality, I have to go back to Philippines to apply for it and it will take at least 10 to 14 days to receive my passport back and to find out if my application was approved or not.  The period of waiting is not a big deal “IF” I have enough time to stay in Philippines or “IF” I am in the Philippines.  What about if I am not?  Currently, I am in a place that I can’t go to an embassy.  I can’t even apply in Dubai; I need to be a resident there.  How difficult can it get right?
