This is often the less exciting stuff to write about but usually what everyone really is here searching for. As I eventually catch up with the stories, I’ll link “some helpful information and tips” under this tab. I don’t really feel warranted to be giving advice as I’m no expert and I tend to just wing most things anyway, but I guess from a lot of trial an error you do eventually figure out what does work and what doesn’t. Also at times I’ve found information lacking in certain areas for things I’ve tried to do, I’ll try and fill those info voids when I solve them.
Some of the visas I’ve had to get have taken a bit of research and a few denied trips to embassies before I actually have received them. The Russian, Belarus and Ukraine visas especially have taken some effort. I will share those experiences here (when I get around to it) as those ones in particular were sometimes difficult to find information on the net about it. If there is anything specific someone wants to know before hand, post the question in the comments and I will endeavor to provide help on those first.
