brexit – Regular travel between UK and Belgium as an Irish citizen + tax?

I am an Irish citizen, my partner is Belgian. We have been living together in Ireland for several years.

For work I need to move to the UK in a few months, where I will be employed for about 3 years. I will need to be a resident for tax purposes. Our original plan involved my partner moving to the UK with me, but when we discovered visa costs, we decided she’d go back to Belgium instead and I would visit for a few days each week (covid restrictions allowing).

We do worry about the frequent travel/tax residency/double taxation, etc. As an Irish citizen, I won’t need a UK visa, so I’m hoping weekly travel will not be an issue. I also don’t plan to register as a resident in Belgium, since I won’t stay continuously for very long.

Anyone have experience with this, post-Brexit? Any tips on what to do/avoid would be much appreciated!

air travel – What happens if one needs to perform a COVID-19 test within x hours of a flight and the flight is late?

In case of USA, it seems that you would need to be re-tested if your flight is late and has fallen outside the window of X hours. This is what I found on the U.S. Embassy website in The Czech Republic.

Q: What happens if my flight is delayed on my way to the United States and the 3 day time frame expires? Will I need to retest?

A: If your flight is delayed before departure, you will need to get
re-tested if the delay causes your test to fall outside of the 3-day
pre-departure testing period requirement. A delay while traveling on
a continuous itinerary will not invalidate an otherwise valid test
unless it results in you leaving the airport terminal or a layover
lasting longer than 24 hours.

air travel – What does Ecuador require to be shown on a COVID-19 PCR test in order to enter the country?

I am scheduled to fly to Ecuador (Guayaquil) in a few months from the US. Ecuador currently requires a negative COVID-19 PCR test from no more than 10 days before entry in order go avoid quarantine. I found this and other useful information on the US Embassy site.

However, I cannot find any information about what specifically counts as a negative COVID-19 PCR test. I get regular COVID-19 tests via test-at-home kits, and each test result shows (in English):

  • My name
  • The approving physician’s name
  • The type of the test (SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR)
  • A test ID/locator number
  • The “result date” (just the date, no time). This is not actually the date the test sample was collected from me, just the date the lab finished analyzing it (typically a couple days later).
  • The result: “Not Detected” for a negative test
  • The name/logo of the lab that performed the test

Is a print out of such a test result enough to qualify for entry to Ecuador, or do I need a test result showing more information? Would it be better to directly show the website containing the test result on my phone? Where could I find authoritative information on this topic?

budget – Travel from Incheon International Airport (Seoul) to Daejeon?

Take the Airport Railroad to Seoul Station and from there a “Mugunghwa” train to Daejeon. The “all stop” train (1 hour journey) from the airport to Seoul costs 3950 KRW. There is an express train doing the journey in 30 minutes. It costs 8000 KRW.

http://english.arex.or.kr/jsp/eng/information/use_information.jsp

The train from Seoul top Daejeon (journey time: 2 hours) costs 10800 KRW in economy class with an assigned seat. If you do without the reservation, you will save 1600 KRW.

http://www.letskorail.com

In total this option (13150 KRW for its cheapest variant) is cheaper than an “Airport Limousine” (= bus), which costs 20600 KRW.

http://www.airport.kr/airport/traffic/bus/busList.iia?flag=E

There are two slightly more expensive alternatives

There are direct KTX trains from Incheon Airport to Deajeon. The 2 hour journey costs 36000 KRW in economy class with an assigned seat.

As an alternative, from Seoul Station you can take a KTX to Daejeon. The 1 hour journey costs 23700 KRW in economy class with an assigned seat.

KTX service to Incheon Airport was stopped in 2018. Use the AREX train from Incheon Airport to Seoul station, then take the KTX from Seoul station to your destination.

h1b visas – Travel within India after International travel?

I am travelling to Hyderabad, India from USA. This is part of my vacation and Visa stamping. I have my biometric finger prints and visa interview both at Chennai US consulate with 6 days gap in between.

So, I am planning to travel to Hyderabad from USA before 4 or 5 days(I will be taking covid tests before hand every 3 to 5 days, of course) and then travel to Chennai from Hyderabad round trip for biometric fingerprints once and travel again from Hyderabad to Chennai roundtrip for visa interview.

Is it OK to air travel on two different dates from Hyderabad to Chennai after my international travel? And I will definitely follow COVID guidelines and will take COVID tests beforehand.

And should I carry any other extra documentation with me?

air travel – should i pay any extra tax in airport if i bring newly built COMPUTER in check-in luggage?

May question may be duplicate, but what I’m looking here is a clear answers and explanation.

So, yeah. Due to high shortage and demands on graphic cards, I plan to build my custom pc completely in US(newegg.com), and would ask my relatives to bring it down to India(Chennai). So here what’s my doubt is, the total cost of unit around 900$, which includes processor, motherboard, GPU, HDD, SSD, PSU, cooling system etc.

I know there is lot of global and trusted shipping companies are there. but shipping itself cost so much.

  1. need to pay any extra taxes?

  2. in Airport, do they ask any documents like P.O or any other
    permission?

Kindly, add your valuable advice or alternative approaches.

Kindly help me to understand

air travel – Are 2.5 hours enough for a layover in Rio?

I’m back from my trip, and I thought I’d share my experience. The first flight departed on time, but landed half an hour late due to strong winds on the landing site. I started getting quite concerned about making it by then, with only 2 hours to departure and a check-in to do.

Moreover, there was quite a line at the passport check (it was quite fast anyway), and the luggage took some time to come out at the belt. Even though I was getting close to departure time, passing the customs was very fast, luckily, since they weren’t doing much checking.

Anyway, despite the delay in landing I managed to check in on time with some rushing, but more time would be advisable to be on the safe side.

P.S. My second flight was delayed two hours, so I wasted a lot of effort 🙂

air travel – If I know a flight is delayed can I turn up late for check-in at the airport?

No you can’t turn up late to check-in on a delayed flight, unless the check-in closing time is delayed along with the departure time. Note that usually this is not the case.

The check-in closing time is set relative to the scheduled departure, and usually remains the same, regardless of whether the flight is delayed or not. Hence if you show up at the airport late for check-in, even though you still have plenty of time before boarding due to the flight being delayed, you will be considered as a no-show. This happened to me a few years back on a snowy day in which all inbound and outbound flights to/from LHR were delayed.

Several websites and forums mention this (see here and here). However I believe this webpage from Air Berlin to be more authoritative:

We are unable to check in passengers arriving at the check-in desk after the check-in deadline. These passengers lose their entitlement to be carried on the flight and do not have any right of reimbursement, issue of a credit note or free rebooking. This check-in deadline will remain the same even if the departure of the flight is delayed.

(Emphasis mine)

Other airlines, including Emirates and British Airways, carry no mention of whether the check-in deadline can be modified, probably because they assume that when flights are delayed the check-in closing time does not vary. However they do mention that arriving late for check-in will cause you to be denied boarding in their Terms of Carriage. Emirates (in PDF) says:

6.3 You must comply with the applicable Check-in Deadline. We have the right to cancel your
reservation if you do not comply with the Check-in Deadline or, if no Check-in Deadline has been
indicated, you fail to check-in prior to closing of check-in for your flight. See also Article 5.7.

British Airways says:

6c) You must check in by the check-in deadline

If you do not complete the check-in process by the check-in deadline, we may decide to cancel your reservation and not carry you. By completing the check-in process we mean that you have received your boarding pass for your flight.
