Ferry Jeddah to Port Sudan - visas
Hi, we're going North-South in our Mog starting towards the end of this year.
Due to Egypt's crazy carnet requirements I'm quite keen to avoid the place. I had understood that getting a Saudi transit visa North-South to pick up the ferry in Jeddah was impossible because the Saudis never knew when/if the ferry was leaving meaning you could easily run out of visa whilst sat on the docks waiting.
Reading a few posts on here it seems to have changed - is there anyone out there with recent(ish) experience of doing this successfully.
Any pitfalls? Is the ferry safe for the vehicle - ie do you ro-ro or is the vehicle taken as cargo? What's entry into Sudan like - I've also heard that Port Sudan is not the easiest place in the world to get through?
Basically - any advice welcomed.....
