Newbie



I'm just starting to plan a wee trip, basicly is just going around the Med

Start - Scotland

England
Wales
England
France
Switzerland
Liechtenstein
Austria
Hungary
Romania
Bulgaria
Turkey
Syria
Lebanon
Israel
Egypt
Libya
Tunisia
Sicily
Italy
Vatican City
Italy
France
England
End - Scotland

It's basicaly a big circle. I've heard someone that I might have problems getting into the north african countries if I've got a stamp from Israel so could do it the other way around if needed. - Anyone notice any other possible problems?

Thanks!!!

ask the israelis to put the visa on a page stapled into your passport, then hey presto undo the staples. The Azeris are willing to do this if you are heading into Armenia, but will probably depend on the embassy/individual
Alternatively pretend to lose your passport, get a new one then put any dodgy visas in the dodge passport. This option is seriously risky....

Hi,

You don't have to pretend to lose your Passport, just ask for a duplicate and state "I will have to have my Passport sent out for Visa applications, and will need one for my hotel or if I'm stopped by the police in the meantime"

See for the Record I'm not much of a Criminal, as sometimes I can make the system work for me.

The Egyptian entry stamp in your Carnet and pasport might be hard to explain and you might get problems with exit stamps from Lebanon..

You know about the guide-situation in Libya?

Thats good to know, maybe I can go legit!

Now if only I can find a way to tick the 'no' boxes when going into the states (you know the ones, 'are you a member of a terrorist organisation'/'are you a murderer' etc) I can really expand my travel options...

Yeah, I had heard that large groups had to have a someone with them while they were in the country (Policeman etc) but you have to pay for it? Is this still the case?

Thanks
