I still have a blue passport with an old USA visa stamped in it!
With the corner cut off, and a hole stamped through the body? I had one like that too. I remember keeping it for the US visa...
I was just probably thinking too much on the comment, though didn't AR have trouble getting Evgenia in to the UK?
I can't remember about that, but it stands to reason; when he brought her over, there would have been visa requirements. Especially during the Intervention in Russia.
When I brought my unblushing Swiss bride over here in '67, they checked her out at Lydd in a few minutes, and put a tiny triangular stamp on a crowded page in her Swiss passport, and that was all it took; she was in, and resident for ever.
I'd forgotten about the rabies regulations. Sinbad should have been quarantined, as you say. I don't know if AR was making a special point about Commander Walker's arrival having been notified to the immigration office, so that they were especially accommodating (which he showed clearly enough).
