I hope to fly this long-haul multi-hop trip to reach San Diego on the west coast of USA from Tokyo, Japan by flying westward. I have an Indian passport, Japanese residence card and valid US visa. I am ready to book it ONLY if there is no need to visit embassies to get a stamp/authorization, as “transit visa” might be required.
But before i book it, i want to make sure, all i need to do is book the tickets, pay the price and take my passport and residence card along when traveling.
I used timaticweb via http://cms.olympicair.com/timatic/webdocsI/spdbmainv.html
Transit Points are Hong-Kong, Ethiopia and Ireland.
But i am concerned about the hops, timings and transit without visa (TWOV) rules. Please help me get the scenario clarified.
- Are 50 minutes stopovers (immigration/transit) in Hong Kong (HKG) feasible?
Is a 1-hour stopover (immigration/transit) in Dublin, Ireland (DUB) feasible?
The visa process at Addis Ababa (ADD) seems unclear to me, am i eligible to transit at ADD while flying from HKG to DUB (Dublin, Ireland), considering that both HKG and DUB are themselves transit points for my journey?
Why I am worried/why is it unclear to me?
Please note the layover duration is 16 & 15 hours on the two legs respectively. And the arrival date and departure date differs (by 00 hours & 05 minutes, oh god) on the westward leg but not so on the return eastward leg.
Visa required, except for Passengers with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 12 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.
Visa Issuance: Visa required, except for Passengers can obtain a transit visa at Addis Ababa (ADD) if transit exceeds 12 hours and if they have confirmation that a visa has been approved before departure by Ethiopian Airlines. The maximum transit time is of 24 hours.
In my case, i have no documents (visa) for the next destination (DUB, Ireland). I guess i need to apply for some kind of Ethiopian transit visa before departure by Ethiopian airlines, do they charge any fees for that?
The page at https://www.ethiopianairlines.com/AA/EN/information/essential/visa_and_immigration_requirements says “Visa are required for all foreign visitors to Ethiopian” and “nationals of 36 countries are now allowed to receive their tourist visas on arrival in Ethiopia at the regular charge.” the list contains India. so, I’d be charged? how much? do i have to pay twice, one for each leg?
What is the guarantee that i will be granted one? What if my application is rejected, will the airline refund my flight cost?
I made an assumption there that i need to apply for transit visa by asking Ethiopian airlines to arrange it for me, and that this can be only done after making a booking. So it’s a deadlock, whether i should make the booking first or apply for transit visa separately. (chicken or egg)
I was so happy that the information about transit in Ireland is so clear.
Transit Without Visa (TWOV): Passenger must travel to a third country within the maximum allowed transit time and have a confirmed onward ticket and documents required for their next country of transit or destination. (USA in my case, i have valid visa)
But after reading some comments in this post, Ireland Transit Visa when flying from IND – Abu Dhabi – Dublin – US
i am worried about transiting in Dublin, Ireland as well.
