sorry, I meant to say via the ferry, from Jordan to Egypt.
Its a shame that crossing Israel creates so many complications.
Im heading that way soon, & it seems the ferrys from ISR to GR are not working now. So, its either turn around in Jordan & return via land, or go to ISR & hope I can find passage to greece.
I dont have a carnet, so Egypt is not an option.
ferries are operating from Israel. I checked with Haifa terminal. Bear in mind that the ferrier are cargoferries. Probably rusty old farts. But hey, when it floats it floats......
The available transportation to Europe is from Haifa Port by cargo ferry : 1) by ferry to Greec- call Rosenfeld Shipping 972-4-8613613 . 2) by ferry to Italy- call Allalouf Shipping - 972-4-8611811.
Good luck and best regards
Mira- Passengers Terminal - Haifa Port."
did this last year, can avoid all traces of Israel, if polite and commanding. went in as Iran wouldn't issue visa and caught a container to italy, but stopped off at Alexandria and various place en route.I also used grimaldi, they have an office in tel aviv and were real life savers, top people very friendly and helpful, container ship although slow was brilliant , very comfortable great food and an experience.
I went from Italy to Egypt completely overland in 2009, with my campervan, and I confirm that the road from Jordan to Egypt goes through Israel: Aqaba-Arava and Eilat-Taba are the borders.
After spending some days in Egypt I went back to Israel and then took the Grimaldi Freighter vessel to Italy. The main reason was the Israeli stamp in the passport that would not allow me to re-enter Syria.
I knew that it is also possible to ask for a stamp in a separate paper, but the real problem is the additional CUSTOM stamp (related to the vehicle entry).
Thus, if anyone is going through Israel, I would recommend to go back to Europe by vessel.
From 2010 there is also a ferry boat that connects Egypt and Italy. The company is called Visemar Line and has a regular passenger service.
If u wanted to do Lebanon u'd have to do it before from Syria, there is no way to enter Syria or Lebanon after Israel, stamp or not, they know from adjacent Arab countries border stamps which way u went.
Turkey, Jordan, Egypt all not a problem with the Israeli stamp.
hiya im planning to drive from uk to egypt and then come back after holiday is finish any idea how much it will cost on egyptian borders fee for car and what document we need to enter egypt please urgent as i should decide with in 3 days other wise will lose the carnet
