Afaik if you are an EU citizen Border Force will not stamp as they are used in conjunction with indications of how long people have the right to stay, which applies to third-country nationals only. The only time I have had one was on a Eurostar ticket from Brussels to London.

Also, having asked the question to that EU thing where you can do so directly, apparently Schengen stamps cannot be applied to people who are not subject to immigration control. So EU citizens cannot have one, they said. But I have had some so maybe some border control people break the rules.

Model of the project of the Bioceanic Tunnel who would connect Argentina and Chile trough the Andes:

Keep it away from. Or out of their hands.

"out of," um, brought a different image to mind.

Yes, the UK stamp is used as a proof of stay, so they legally can't give it.

That's also true, but unlike UK stamps, the Schengen ones are only used for informational purposes and they don't imply any restriction on your stay. For that reason, they tend to be far more relaxed about giving them - they understand "stupid tourist"

I don't like that new Albania stamp, the old one was far nicer! I'm surprised Montenegro hasn't copied it by now...

(and for that matter, when will Serbia finally update their Yugoslav-era stamps?)

Chile terminal is 800 m over sea level as I can read.

What about Argentina?

I am asking the same thing, I think that Serbian stamps are the only one in Europe which do not contain country code, just the name of crossing.

The EU should reduce stamp size to Serbian size though. Two EU stamps practically can't be placed one next to another without overlapping

Talking about passport stamps.. My friend asked for a stamp in his passport when entering Gibraltar, the immigration officer (or border guard, not sure about the correct word) said they were busy, come back later. When we came back there was another officer on duty and he simply refused to stamp the passport. We are both swedish citizens.

At the western end of the Pyrenees, the French A10 (E5/E70/E80) connects to a motorway in Spain. At the eastern end of the Pyrenees, the French A9 (E15) connects to a motorway in Spain. I don't know the Spanish numbers (someone here will). I don't think there's anything in between.

The A9 connects to the Spanish AP-7.
The A10 stops at Bordeaux and merges with the A630, the Bordeaux Orbital. After Bordeaux you carry on onto the A63 which becomes the A-8 in Spain.

Tha't funny! When I was in Gibraltar I asked the guy to stamp my passport and he said exactly the same: "Come back later!"

I went back later, there was another guy and he said he was busy (there were people coming in). I told him: "I can wait". I stayed there for a couple of minutes until it cleared up and then I got the stamp.

In the Spanish side, AP-7 in the Mediterranean coast, AP-8 in the Atlantic.


Mediterranean: after Barcelona you can reach A-2 through Zaragoza/Madrid/centre east Spain (or C-25 in Gerona)

Atlantic: after San Sebastián you can reach A-1 through Vitoria (or AP-1 in Eibar), either national road in Irun (just in the same border and I recommend it to go to Pamplona).


Another option is Somport tunnel. The longest non-tolled tunnel in the EU and motorway starts 20 km or so after the tunnel (A-23). I must state that A-23 until Huesca is not fully finished yet, just some streches before Nueno but later you can go until Sagunto (km. 0 of A-23), Zaragoza, Madrid, etc...

Strange, I went there at beginning of 2012 and got immediately after asking a passport stamp.... Border wasn't busy during that time, but I don't know if it's a problem to take 5 seconds to stamp a passport

To those that have crossed the border into Gibraltar - can anyone tell me if there are...

- exit controls from Spain (or even an empty booth - anything at all that implies control?)

And... how does the entry control into Spain look like? Is there anything similar to the Gibraltar 'corridor' that pedestrians go through, or is it just a hut with a window?

And the final question - how do Spanish entry controls normally look?
