Lenght of Mauri-VISA
Just met 4 Spanish guys, in Dakhla, who had their visas for Mauritania 30st of September in Rabat, for 30 days. After seeing Morocco, they wanted to pass the border yesterday (17th November) but got refused at the border and sent back to Dakhla and back to Rabat for new visa, cause at the border they said it was expired at the 30th of October.
Although it shouldn't be like that, this IS their situation and believe me... the were quite experienced in Africa.
In order to avoid the same situation, make sure when you pick ur visa at the embassy, the dates written on it are somehow the same like your intended date of crossing the border.
I can imagine that lots of travellers will get their visa in Rabat and do a month or so tour around Morocco. Check the dates or you might get refused at the border later on.
I know in the Lonely Planet guide, it is stated that you have a three months period after issueing the visa, but that seemed to be outdated, at least, for the Spanish guys.
You can try ur luck, or keep this post in mind!
