usa – Returning to US from Italy: will self-quarantine be enforced by law?

I’m an American living in Italy. I’ll be coming home (NJ) for a few days at the beginning of August. I’m thinking that the COVID crisis will have largely calmed down at that point (in Italy it’s almost over), but it is still possible according to CDC guidelines that I’ll be asked to stay at home for 14 days.

Here’s my question: is the self-imposed quarantine enforced by law in the US and in NJ in particular? i.e. is law enforcement checking on people?

money – I plan on travelling to USA, I have question related to +TAX and +F/S when buying something online (particulary laptop)

So I plan buying a laptop from an online shop when I’m in USA and let’s say it costs 1200$ +TAX or I even saw +F/S , so please enlighten me about what are those taxes and how is it calculated? And even if I’m not able to go to USA is there any chance of some company shipping electronic products to Europe?

Are there US Customs restrictions on buying alcohol online from Spain to be shipped to USA?

Are there any USA Customs restrictions involving buying alcohol onlin (specifically two 1-liter bottles of honey rum) from Spain (the Canary Islands) to be shipped to USA (NYC)?

I found an overseas seller and in the process of ordering, they informed me that it can possibly be blocked at US Customs. So I did a few searches and haven’t really gotten a concrete answer if it will be a problem or if it is even allowed.

Therefore, 1-are there any restrictions in regards to the above and
2- If allowed, does one have to fill out a form (like one does when traveling on a plane) to declare the two bottles being shipped?
I wouldn’t want to complete the order to then find out that customs confiscated the goods.

usa – Wire transfer from America

Where would the money come from, if you do not have an account with that bank? Are you trying to bring cash to a bank to turn in to a wire?

In any case, the answer is probably no. Banks are required to verify identity for international transfers as an anti-terrorism and anti-laundering practice. Nothing, as far as I know, stops you from opening an account in a bank, depositing the money, and sending a wire with it, provided you have suitable identification.

We might be of more help if we knew why you needed to do this, in case alternative methods of transfer are available. For small amounts, for example, you could use an International Postal Money Order.

magento2.3 – Block traffic from USA but allow Google, Bing bots and Facebook catalogue uploads

I recently suffered 2 credit card attacks on my live site with traffic on the first attack coming from Singapore and on the second it came via the USA from someone in Vietnam.

We don’t sell other than in the UK so I thought I’d block all traffic excluding EU and UK.

I’ve added the following to my .htaccess file but now I’m getting Google, Bing and Facebook Catalogue problems and both Facebook catalogue uploads and SEO is being heavily impacted.

GeoIPEnable On

SetEnvIf GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE UK AllowCountry
SetEnvIf GEOIP_CONTINENT_CODE EU AllowCountry

Deny from all
Allow from env=AllowCountry

I’m not that advanced on how to configure .htaccess and would really appreciate any advice you could offer.

What I’m trying to achieve is to block user traffic but allow services/bots / FB to reach me.

I hope that makes sense.

usa – Canadian tourist visa refused because of travel history and personal assets

I am from the Republic of Georgia.

I have a visa refusal from the US Embassy and I included this information in my Canadian visa application. In my Canadian refusal letter, only two sections were marked.

The first one was personal assets; at the time, my travel was suponsored by my father. Now, a lot of things have changed and I have a house, cars and a big company that trades natural methane/ethane gas to different, smaller organizations. I own 50% share of the company.

The second marked section was travel history. I had never been to China, Iran nor any Arabian countries; I had only included refusal information from the US Embassy; this must be the reason for refusal.

This year, I intend to re-apply for a Canadian tourist visa to vacation in August after visiting two European countries.

How do I overcome these refusal problems?

Lately, I have been to Cuba and some Scandinavian countries. I am planning to visit more European countries since Georgian Citizens are no longer required to have a visa to visit Schengen countries.

usa – Multiday parking in San Francisco

I would recommend obtaining a long term parking permit at one of the various BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. As of August 2019 the daily rate is $7 for all stations where parking is available, which is far lower than any garage parking spaces you will find in metro San Francisco. It should be noted that none of the BART stations in SF proper (Embarcadero to Balboa Park) have any parking facilities.

Once parked, depending on your station of choice, it will cost you between $3 and $7 for a one-way trip to the downtown San Francisco stations on the BART system.
