Some news about the CDP for Iran
I just wanted to post this: a person I know, riding a Gold Wing 1500, has just returned back to Italy from his solo trip to Mongolia.
He wrote, on an Italian motorycle travellers message boards, that he's been told at Iran border by Iranian custom officers that there is no need of a Carnet de Passage if one's stay in Iran is not more than 10 days.
One has simply to pay a fee whose amount is according the value of the motorycle (about USD 200/250 for a motorycle whose value is about USD 9,000).
This was also said by an Italian travel agency some months ago, but we did not believe it. So, he verified this on location, and the answer seems to be positive, as you see.
Does anybody know about this possibility?
I just wanted to share this with you all, it might be interesting to anybody planning to go to Iran
