I'm going to be traveling to Norway in the coming weeks and I am trying to get a stamp in my passport. The last time I was there they didn't even bother to look at my passport...I assume because of Shengen (spelled wrong). But this time I actually need the stamp to prove I can be in the country...long story involving my wedding...but I'm curious if I can still get a stamp from the immigration folks? Any info would be appreciated.

Just ask for it and you will get it!

Just ask them, their no law against it. As an airline crewmember, they never stamp our passports at the request of the airline, because a stamp form some countries may deny you entry into others. For example, an Israeli stamp most likely will deny you entry into an Arab country. And vice versa, an Arab stamp may subject you to intense questioning if trying to enter Israel The only country that stamps our passports is the Peoples Republic of China and the Republic of China(Taiwan). But just request a stamp, they'll do it for you. They probably just assume that you don't care, so they don't care.

Excellent, thanks for the replies...I was begining to worry that I would not be able to get one. It makes sense that all you have to do is ask...now if only KL had the A332's flying to AMS by the end of July...oh well.

The Schengen acquis REQUIRES that an alien be stamped at every external frontier. This is often ignored, but the officer is obligated to provide one on request.

I always ask for my passport to be stamped for tax reasons. I need to show "x" number of days away from home country to qualify for non-resident tax rates and passport stamps from foreign countries is the only "proof" acceptable in an audit.

So when you go to AMS and they stop you at passport control...is this what you mean?

I believe that is what he means.. Norway (and also your example of AMS= The Netherlands) are party to the Schengen treaty. This basically eliminates national borders within this zone. Switzerland just voted to join and will likely do so in the next few years. Stamps from all the Schengen countries are identical and you are not stamped for travel over the borders..(ex. drive from AMS to CDG and you will not get a stamp when you pass to Belgium or France). When you (as an American passport holder) enters the Schengen zone you receive a stamp. Sometimes, the agent for whatever reason, does not stamp it. (Even though they should). But, if you specifically ask for one they will give it to you.



Now it should be "IFLYDCA"

You will probably get stamp on your passport, I got one when I went to AMS and then I got stamped again when I left AMS.

Haha, glad to hear I'm not the only one  Wink Fellow members said it right, just ask for the stamp and you will get one.

Regards.
