    • US B2 Visa Application

      United States of America Apr 22, 2015 at 8:25 PM

      My family is planning a visit to Hawaii later this year. Most of us are eligible for the VWP, but my wife needs a B2 visa since she holds a Malaysian passport, though she's resident in Singapore. From the website ustraveldocs.com, I gather that there are a few hoops that she needs to jump through in order to just submit her application:

      1. Print out a form and pay the visa application fee (USD160 in SGD equivalent) at a Standard Chartered Bank branch in Singapore. No problem, there are a few around. But the bank will issue a receipt with a serial number which is needed later.

      2. Fill out an online form and upload a photo. No problem, although the form is like 20 pages long. Mostly done, but I have yet to submit the form electronically.

      3. Create a user account, login, submit the form together with the payment serial number from (1) above. This is the problem - I am unable to create an account. Calling the helpline doesn't help - the automated voice menu doesn't cover this issue and there is no option to speak to a person. There's also a chat function which timed out. There's just a generic error message that doesn't give any indication what the problem might be.

      So essentially I have to fork out SGD224 for her visa, with no guarantee that I can even get to submit the form if the account cannot be created. And the fee is non-refundable.

      Could anyone who applied for a US visa before suggest what I could be doing wrong, or what the problem might be? It could be that a new user account can only be created after the form has been submitted, but that means having to pay the application fee first. It's a leap of faith I'm not prepared to take at this time since the fee is not insignificant.

      Thanks.

      KC visit late July

      Kansas City Apr 19, 2015 at 7:15 PM

      We're continuing our quest of baseball parks this summer. KC, Arizona, and Colorado are on our list this year. We usually spend another day or two in the cities we visit. Looking for tips on where to stay relatively close to the ballpark, and other "must-see", "must-eat", etc. locations while in KC.

      Thanks!

      Transportation/car rental

      Oahu Apr 1, 2015 at 4:58 PM

      Hi - cruising May 16-23 and then staying at Turtle Bay 23-26. I will need ground transport from the airport to the cruise terminal and then from the cruise terminal to the rental car. Prefer private transport but more importantly reliable and quick. Some people say just wait til I get there and others say its important to have it all set up before I go. Prices are all over the map and reviews are too. Any advice would be appreciated.

      arriving quite late on an evening (may 2015) at the main airport and we will need lodgings for THAT one night. already have a downtown hotel booked for nights following arrival night. question: could anybody recommend a BUDGET motel nearby the airport or, say, halfway between the airport & downtown, or even on the 'fringes' of downtown- something that would be easily accessible by cab from the airport. i have looked at a number of online maps and am finding it difficult getting oriented. lodgings i have considered all seem to be located in 'far- off' areas. we will not be renting a car. any suggestions would be much appreciated. thank you !

    • Megabus stop

      by arranlee Online Now Dec 30, 2014 at 5:29 AM

      Hi,
      I'm thinking of stopping off in Omaha for the day to visit the zoo, old market and the Bob Kerrey bridge but if I did, I would need to get the 10pm Megabus to Chicago.
      I did a quick Google search and it seems that the Crossroads Mall where the Megabus stop is located is quiet at the best of times, let alone at 10pm, so I just wondered if I am likely to be able to find the Megabus stop ok assuming there is no one around as I will be taking a bus or taxi there? And if I should be ok there as a solo traveller at that time of night?

      Thanks,
      Arran

      I'm an austrian female student planing to go to omaha in sept.07 for an internship .

      1)Can you give me some suggestions for cheap accomodation or is there any organisation which can help to find a guestfamily. Or can I stay in student's home on the campus of creighton university? How much do you think it would be?

      2)On my free days I would like to learn as much as possible about the typical way of life in the midwest or in small rural cities, where should I go to, what should I do?

      3) Where can I meet young people?

      4) Because I don't want to buy a car for one month, is there any public transport system like city buses?

      Thanks for answering my questions, and have a merry christmas time

      Zoo - Zoo Penny Favor

      by my2kids Online Now Sep 18, 2005 at 1:03 PM

      Hello Omaha,

      My family and I stopped at the Henry Doorly Zoo a few years ago while on our way back from a medical trip in Utah for one of our special needs children.

      Our son with autism just started making and collecting zoo pennies this year, from the zoos he visits.

      I would love to get him a zoo penny from the Henry Doorly Zoo and wrap it up for him for Christmas.

      I'm not sure this zoo has the machine to make the pennies. But if they do and anyone is willing to make us one. I would gladly pay for the amount to have the penny done plus the shipping to send it to us here in North Dakota.

      Thanks so much,

      Barb
