Postby Chamaleon » Sat May 10, 2008 10:32 am

Hellooooooo

Im planning to go to BM this summer for the first time, im so excited! It will be my first time in the USA as well and im sure its going 2 be a wonderful experience, im looking for surprises!

I am going to work the hole juny,july & august in a friend's bar just so i can go to BM and catch up with u all! nice!

I am DJ & Producer and i would love to contact with some people that have booths at BM, send'em some music and maybe they like it enough that i have a little time to play my skills in the other side of the world. I have looked thru the website but i can't find many references, theres so much info, im still introducing.

Well, sorry for my english, maybe i don't make much sense sometimes, hehe, besos!

sorry. Maybe in english its a different word.

WIZA in Poland is a special written permission from emassy for you if you want to get to Ameria. It's hard to get one cause they always think that you want to earn some money there ;]

Yes, you need a car to get there.

The best way is fly to Reno (the nearest town with airport) and rent a car there.

But If you can't (just like me) you need to find somebody who can take you there.

WIZA = visa. Yes, the same word the big credit card company uses.

Welcome, and hey, I've been to Mallorca! Briefly in 1970, and I was a kid, but it was waaaaay cool.

They won't let you in on a tourist visa? Even if you show them a round trip ticket?

u.s. Customs and Border Patrol wrote:Q: What Countries Are in the VWP?
A: The following countries are currently in the program:

Andorra, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brunei, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom*.

For citizens with the unrestricted right of permanent abode in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, may add countries to the program or remove them from the program at any time.

After May 15, 2003, citizens of Belgium must present a machine-readable passport in order to be granted admission under the VWP. This requirement also applies to citizens of Andorra, Brunei, Liechtenstein and Slovenia.

A place to start. Ought to be possible. It says that it 's only a 2 day wait go get an appointment at the Warsaw embassy/consulate for a visa. I do think that a government website isn't going to tell you the full story, but it's a place to start.

I thought that a) Poland was in the EU and b) that EU visitor visas would be easy to get. I think I was wrong. I've never needed any visa but the one they give you at the airport when I've traveled. but at least some of that travel was during the US's power years, when the citizenship and the dollar meant something.

about wiza in Poland -

I've herd that this is almost a lottery. Two the same people can get different anwsers! You need to proove that you will not gonna stay there illegal.
It's not only for dollars. (they styll are not so worhless for poland)
but for living in better places.
there is a joke in Poland ->

---------------

you know what this line is? It's a map of warsaws metro! :D


The same is with driving licence in Warsaw.
They won't pass you. They lie. they find stupid mistakes. just because they want more money. and they will get more if you will take an exam again.. and again.. and again..

Hey, im into Electro-Eclectic-Breaks-Allstyles! ahha, pretty undefined!

In Spain is hard to get licences cause they make u learn the driving book completely, u can only make three wrongs over 50 answers. And the driving test its extremely severe too, u can't make more than 2 or 3 low mistakes. Well, better like this, safer roads.

It's easy to get a license in California/Nevada. I don't know what the rules are about getting one if you are just visiting but I know people do it.

That's perfectly possible. And it might even have been why I was asking.

Big controversy in Washington state a few years back was the changing requirements for 16 yo to get licenses. Your on probtion now, and have to have so many hours logged with an adult to even qulify to take the test in addition to drivers ed. After that your license is restricted in the number of passengers, and hours you can drive.

16 17 yos cause a disproportionate number of accidents

Perfectly reasonable. The one issue is that now so many of us are living in suburbia where it was all designed around the car and kids are crazy bored or watching video games. I can see that the "soccer moms" might get tired of chaffeur duty after more than 15 years. Infrastructure does effect our lives more than we might like to believe.
