Border Saudi Arabia & Yemen

Hi,

According to other posts on this branch governments of both KSA and Yemen won't allow travellers to cross the border by public transport. How are my chances if I have myself dropped off at the Saudi border by a travel agent and picked up by a travel agent on the Yemeni side?

Thanks very much for your responses.

I am sure there are taxis waiting breathlessly for such as you! There will be a way and I would not worry.

Thanks Bin Ridin. It's just that it's one of those countries that IF you can get in you want to be well prepared...

No taxis seen on the border, but in any case it's not desperately far from one to the other border post so in the worse case I don't see a problem walking all the way there. I'm sure a truck driver would pick you up for that stage. If the Saudis let you out I don't see a reason Yemenis wouldn't let you in. The other way might be stiffer, though.

Cheers,
DS
