Syria visa
Hey to all, I dont know who is telling the story, that you cant enter Syria at the moment??? I camed from Jordan, and got without any problems a 3 days transit visa for 8US plus 30US incurence for the bike. In Hama I couldnt get an extension, but easily in Aleppo. Then, I left Syria at the Killis border, and they told me I hav to come back soon, transitvise wouldnt be a problem. two days ago, because of different reason I tried to go to the turkish Nusabyn Border, but that one is completly closed! So I drove to the Jarabulus one, and it wasnt any problem to get a visa there again. They told me its a3 days transit visa, so I paid 8US for Visa, and 8US Customs. But I figgured out, its a 4 week touristvisa! So, its possible to come to Syria from both sides!!! And its worth, I will stay a couple of days again here in Aleppo, before returning back to turkey! So all the best to all oberlanders!

Well done mate....

It's not just the visa though, its the real or perceived dangers in Syria now.

I tried to cross the border about 2 weeks ago, parked on the Jordan side, got permission to walk over (escorted) and ask if I could enter. I have a New Zealand passport so could in theory get a visa at the border. But they told me the border "is not possible today". I did my best to weave and dodge this answer, supplying reasons why it would be ok, a letter written in Arabic explaining my trip etc etc.

But a very firm "not today" ;-)

A Dutch guy had also tried and got turned away earlier....

So maybe your nationality was ok, or maybe it changed from day to day...
