My family and I would like to spend an extended time (5-6 months or more) in Europe. My wife is a US/Canadian citizen (the rest of us are Dutch citizens), and that seems to present a problem if we want to stay more than 90 days, which is the maximum length of Schengen tourist status. I'm not getting very far trying to figure out if and how that time can be extended. The process seems to vary from country to country. We're pretty flexible about which countries we stay in, so which countries make this relatively easy and cheap? [more inside]

My aunt will be visiting Canada on a tourist visa from India and she would like to purchase health insurance for the duration of her visit.

My sister-in-law in Japan was denied a tourist visa to visit us here in the US. It's especially disappointing because my wife and sister haven't seen each other in over a decade, nor has she ever met our kids. Is there anything we can do at this point? [more inside]

I have a friend who's in university in Nimes and is coming to the US for a four-week internship in August. She's been told she can come over for the four weeks on a tourist visa and doesn't need the J-1 visa because she won't be here for the two months that would require a J-1. She's asked me for help. Any MeFiers out there understand what I need to find out and who I'd ask to get the definitive word on this?
