singapore – How to visit Jewel in Changi on layover without paying extra?

If just seeing the artificial waterfall is what you’re after, you can do that at no extra cost from inside the transit area without ever entering Singapore. The transit shuttle from B to E (see Kate’s map) passes through the Jewel at a nice height to see the waterfall and the surrounding open space; see these pictures I took from inside that transit shuttle in April 2019:

My memory is not entirely fresh, it could have been that the shuttles briefly waited in front of the waterfall to provide best views but even if they didn’t they don’t travel that quickly.

Note that while there is only one arrival platform in each of the terminal wings, the bit through Jewel serves as a passing area to double the capacity of the shuttles so if you’re in the unlucky direction there’ll be another path of the shuttle between you and the water. Fret not, the shuttle is free and goes back and forth all day so just board again.

Also note that if my memory serves me correctly Kate’s map is not accurate; you want to be on the inner circle to get a view of the waterfall (i.e. the shuttle passes through the part of Jewel closer to terminal 1).

I will also point out although it is at best tangential to the other points in this answer that on the other leg of my flight with Singapore Airlines that April (Asia–SIN–Europe return) I had an 18-hour layover, entered Singapore visa-free and went sightseeing in the city without having to pay any additional fee to get back airside. At no point in that transit did I pass any booth that had anything about a departure tax mentioned so reading about it here is the first time I saw it.

visas – Can my boyfriend, who lives in the UK and has a Polish passport, visit me in the USA?

As others have said, a Polish citizen needs a Visa for the US. However, if you’re in a pinch for time, you have a US Passport, and he has a Polish, both of you can travel to Canada without Visas. If time doesn’t allow for him to get his Visa, that might be your next best option.

UPDATE: The US is admitting Poland into the Visa Waiver program. Word on the street is that sometime between January and March, Poles should be able to enter the US for 90 days without a formal visa. https://www.euronews.com/2019/10/05/poland-to-join-u-s-visa-waiver-program-after-decades-long-campaign

UK visit visa refusal – Not sure how to proceed

I am wondering if someone can help with this visit visa refusal my Indonesian girlfriend received today

This is a second refusal letter. The first one was refused because we didn’t include any proof of relationship and hadn’t included the bank where her payroll is paid. Fair enough.

But this one, we included both accounts with 6 months bank statements. The payroll account only contains wages that match her payslips. The savings account (apart from a few payments from me) contains payments from her payroll account.

Everything is accounted for and we even clearly listed all the evidence and my payments in a letter to make it easy for them with a note explaining that the savings account contains payments from the payroll account.

I tried contacting UKIV to tell them and find out what happened but they said they can’t help. Should I apply again? Do I need to explain every transaction? How can I make it clearer?

Even though she has plenty of money in her savings account, I still put my myself down as sponsor and that I would pay for flights, accommodation and other expenses. So what’s with the last paragraph about working / public funds?

international travel – Is there an “internet anywhere” device I can bring with me to visit the developing world?

I’m a software engineer, and my company has announced that even after COVID-19 is no longer an issue, we’re free to work remotely indefinitely. My boss has given me permission to travel the world while working remotely, and I’d like to open my eyes and see the developing world.

Sub-saharan Africa, India, and parts of Asia specifically are on my list. I’m planning to learn and explore and gain a better understanding of the region during the day, and then work during the evenings, 7pm to midnight, which is typical business hours in the american timezones.

I’m seeing two major obstacles here, electricity and internet. Electricity I can tackle using solar panels, as I can keep my laptop and a portable phone battery charging during the day, and then work until my laptop is drained at night. But internet is harder, as many of these areas have very little cellular infrastructure, and I probably need at least a few Mbps to get work done.

Are there devices I can buy that use satellites to get me at least reasonable internet access, basically anywhere on earth? I’m willing to really stretch the budget to make this happen, so cost isn’t too much of a concern.
