Saudi Motorcycle Transit Visa - Who Got One?

I have seen many references but no actual posting/thread by a biker who's actually done it:

Striking Viking Failed: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb...ML/000055.html

BrettUAE says it is possible http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb...ML/000102.html

4X4 has done it: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb...ML/002269.html

I've just arrived in Khartoum

I would be interested to hear from anyone who's done it:

- Bike visa form no
- days taken
- embassy used etc

hi jerome,

i am in khartoum since a couple of weeks now. i tried to get a transit visa through saudi (as i am on my way to india). apparently there is no way, if you are riding a motorcycle (with a four wheeler it would not be a problem). that is at least what they have told me.

might be interesting to talk to each other IRL. i am staying at the Sawachli hotel in downtown khartoum.

take care

mick

Hi Mick,

I'm staying at the Acropole Hotel, room 24, which is near the Sahara Hotel.

Can we met at the acropole at, say 6pm tonight?

the entrance is in the road parallel to the river. my bike will be outside off the road near the door.

Hope to see you later.

J

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
