Renewing My UAE Carnet in the USA
I am on a RTW to and from Dubai, UAE and the one - year validity of my carnet expires on the 2nd June 2008. I am currently in Bolivia, heading north and aim to be in the United States sometime before the expiry date, insh'alla. I understand from the Touring Club of the UAE who issued my carnet in Abu Dhabi, that I can renew the carnet at any other national motoring organisation, i.e. the AAA in the United States.
I have two questions that I would really appreciate any other HUBBers advice and assistance.
Firstly, has anyone any experience of doing this, in particular with Arabic documents at the AAA in the USA?
Secondly, my current carnet has some national exclusions stamped on it, e.g. Egypt and Sudan. On my return to Dubai, I hope to travel through Egypt, Sudan, Eithiopia, Yemen and Oman. Is it possible for me to keep these exclusions off my new carnet without timely and expensive dealings with the original issuing authority in Abu Dhabi?
Thanks in advance for any advice and assistance you can offer,
