There's lots of nations one can TRANSIT and could always transit .. the issue was would one be accepted at the journey's end and without a period of quarantine

*I* started the thread about places FSU folk go to / we can go to

I can now go to Russia on a private invitation visa which normally takes 3 months to get (?) but I'd still need to quarantine both in RU and the UK

Still looking like France of Cyprus in mid August (




We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..

today is the first day in Moscva that
restaurants, cafes, gyms, libraries, saunas, swimming pools, day care, playgrounds, social welfare offices, and sports facilities will be officially allowed to reopen!!!!

crimean travel border, fully open to Russia

ruh-ro!

everyone must wear masks and gloves when outside
or get fined by the militsa
you must maintain distance in lines!!

this means, you can’t shove people or cut in front of them in line!
even if it’s some old lady!
TOTALLY illegal NOW under Russian law!!
WTF, where’s my freedom to shove old people in lines gone to, huh?
moy jhoppa!!

I don’t care about the law
when shoving old people in lines is outlawed
only outlaws will shove old people in lines

HA!

PS
for those who don't know about the sport of "Babooshka Shoving"
when some ole babooshka tries to cut in front of your line
you grab her by the shoulder and you shove her out of line
with one hand
and gesture with your thumb to the back of the line
on a good day, you can do this 3-4 times per day standing in lines in Moscva!

then EVERYONE looks at you with DEEP admiration and gratitude in their eyes
but now those carefree days are GONE!!!

and some ole starooshka is gonna cut you in line
and legally not a damn thing you can do about it now
hence, the outlaw approach

Just had an email from the French Schengen Visa people ..

NOT good news for those with partners / girlfriends / or even US folk hoping to visit Schengen nations without residency


In connection with the epidemiological situation associated with Covid-19, France suspended the submission of documents and the issuance of visas until new orders. This decision applies to all visa applications (short-term Schengen visas, long-term national visas for staying in France, visas for overseas territories). The decision also applies to applications that have already been submitted and to applications for which a preliminary record is already available. In the coming weeks, a gradual resumption of activities is planned for some priority categories of
 visas. The consulate will soon inform about the resumption of work.
However, the external borders of the Schengen zone remain closed, and the presence of a visa is not a guarantee of entry into France, which is still limited for some categories of people.

All short-term visa applications that were pending at the Consulate were returned to VFS Visa Application Centers to return the passports to applicants. Applicants whose applications have been rejected by the Consulate will need to re-apply for a visa after resuming work.


Applications for a long-term national visa remain at the Consulate, but their consideration is suspended until the resumption of the service.


Applicants who have received a visa but were unable to travel due to cancellation of flights due to COVID-19 will be able to re-submit a new application by the end of June. An application for a visa will be submitted with a facilitated set of documents (mainly on new conditions of stay) for a period equal to the initial request. These visa applications will receive particular attention. Holders of type C visas with start and end dates from the beginning to the end of the border closure period will be able to apply for exemption from
  payment of the visa fee upon filing a new application for the same purpose of the trip as in the previous request. Previous visa must be unused. The consulate will provide more detailed information on the procedure for this procedure, when it will be possible to resume the service.


Residence permits in France, long-term national visas or temporary residence permits (“récépissé de demande de renouvellement de titre de séjour”), which expire from March 16 to June 15, 2020, are extended by 6 months. If you have one of these documents, your main place of residence is in France, and you are blocked outside of France due to the interruption of flights, you will be able to return to France when the situation permits, provided that you fly directly to France flight. When crossing the border you will need to
 prove your stay in France.


In case of justified emergencies, you can extend a short-term visa (no more than 90 days) or a temporary residence permit if you are in France on the basis of an expired short-term visa and cannot return to your home country because this country prohibits entry from France due to health reasons, or due to the fact that air traffic was discontinued. To do this, you need to contact the prefecture at the place of stay.
