What you need to know, if you are planning a trip to North America?

Traveling by a plane is not a piece of cake. You have to know a lot of thinks before you get on board, and even much more faster. What to put inside carry on baggage, and what difference is between checked luggage? Could I bring any kind of food on board? And what about cosmetics? And flying with pets? What documents do I need when I am a disabled person? Can I have a sport equipment with me? And many more. And what about some specific destination? What you must to know when you are wanting to travel to/from Canada or USA?


Canada
Plenty issues had modify since last year. Earlier you have to have a dedicated visa if you wish to go to Canada, nowadays it is a lot more easier. When you like to go there, you must to record on Canadian web page, you would find it online. You have to make an account, and you need a few documents: your passport ID and credit card number. You must to write down how long your vacation will take, and what is the purpose of your trip. Beside, even if you are just changing your plane on Canadian airfield, you steel need it. There are huge differences between travel to/from Canada, cause if you just flying back to Poland, you only have to have your passport with you (http://www.lot.com/us/en/travel-usa). But remember, we are the member of EU, so you are not allowed to get any foods of animal origin inside your luggage, because guards will trough it away immediately. In different way, you also cannot have any meals with you, or liquors and cigarettes either.

United States of America

Travel to/from USA is many more difficult. First of all, you need to have a visa, if you are inhabitant of Poland, even if we are a member of EU. Getting an USA visa is not a piece of cake. If you are wishing just to tour trough the States, touristic visa will be nice. To collect one, you have to fill a lot of documents and organize a meeting with consul in Krakow or Warsaw. They could ask you a few questions about any other travel to/from USA, your wealth, martial status and more. Plenty of the situations, you should get visa with no problems. But if you use to be a convict criminal, or you was before in USA but you didn't come back in time, they could not give you this (visit the page). Much more faster is to get it while you are going for any science conference or medical treatment. In other cases, up to 1 in 10 Poles aren't getting tourist visa. If you collected all required documents and your air ticket, you need to pack properly, no matter if you are travel to/from USA. You can't have any food such as: fruits, plants, dairy, meat and alcohol or tobacco. While you are coming back, just products of animal origin are forbidden.
