Does travel between French Guiana and mainland France require a passport?[edit]

Or not? Asked by: 14:12, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, as French Guiana is outside the Schengen area you do need a passport. If you happen to have an EEA ID-card you can use it instead of a passport. ϒpsilon (talk) 14:24, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Here is the official answer. It says that, to enter French Guiana, French citizens don't need a passport but need their official identity card; other EU citizens need a passport or their ticket home; and other people need the same documentation they would to enter mainland ("metropolitan") France. Where you're arriving from apparently doesn't matter. It also says that proof of vaccination against yellow fever is required for everyone. -- 17:44, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Transit by road through Kenya[edit]

I am planning to travel to Jinja in Uganda from Malawi. I wish to transit through Kenya spending probably max two nights in the process, possibly only one night. We can't get a Carnet for the vehicle in Malawi, it has to be done through AA South Africa and I don't have the time to wait. Min 10 days. The vehicle will have a Temporary Export Permit from Malawi with Police clearance Report etc.It also is a duty free import here and Title Holder is actually Malawi Revenue Authority, so it can't be sold.I will be traveling on Comesa Yellow card third party insurance, which is acceptable through to Uganda. Do I take the chance and drive through to the Kenyan Border and see if they will allow me through or is there anyone I can contact for assistance? Ram nareshji (talk) 09:39, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
