Where to get Visa for Yemen ?

Hi there,

can anybody give me some advice on obtaining visa for Yemen?

I am currently in Delhi and am planning to head to Yemen via Pakistan, Iran, UAE and Oman.

According to the German Embassy in Delhi it should be as complicated to get a visa for Yemen as it is for getting a visa for Iran.

So: where would be the best place to get a visa for Yemen?

Regards

Lars

Yemeni Visa

Where do you stay longer in those countries.
Wherever you stay longer apply for Yemeni Visa.
It looks more suitable in Pakistan and/or Iran.

Infact it is not SO easy for a non-muslim to get visa for Yemen. I met two single Spanish woman in Yemen who were there for 2 weeks holiday.
If you have some time, I think you get it.

Personally I will recommend you to not miss it. It worths to wait.

i arrived in oman today, coming from yemen

hi lars,

this is of course not really of help for you, but i just wanna encourage you to do what you wanna do.

i got my yemeni visa in ethiopia. no problems at all, straight forward and with 20,- usd (if i recall right) comparatively cheap. and i am not a muslim.

yemen is great, the first impression of oman the same (although way more expensive).

take care

mick

Thumbs up

Things have changed for the better. The official word from the immigration authority in Sana'a is that all citizens of Schengen countries get a 3 month visa at the border.

Unfortunately, not all border officials are up-to-date on this, so I only got 1 month and 3 Frenchmen I met told me they had been turned back at the Omani border. If this sort of thing happens to you, smile and explain the rules. Failing that, insist that the officials ring head office. When I went there to get my visa extended I was told that one month was wrong and so they extended it without charge.
