First you need to find out which countries YOU need visas for.

As Canadians we were able to get the Egypt visa at the border, no need to get it in advance, and I think most of the countries on your list we can do that also.

Australians on the other hand need visas for almost all countries - because Australia requires visas for everyone!

If you can't get it at the border, you can usually get it at the country before. This doesn't usually take long, but it can be a few days to a week or so, so don't be in a hurry!

There is a link on the Links page here http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/links/ to a site that will help you to figure out which countries you need visas for. If in doubt check with the embassies at home first.

Good luck!

hi
if you begin your trip in israel and have any isreali stamps (or even egypt entry stamp at border with israel) in your passport or on your vehicle docs), the syrians, iranians and pakistanis will NOT let you or your vehicle in!!!
happy travels,

It is virtually impossible to get a visa at the border to go to Syria. I have heard of one guy being successful after a long, long wait... I am talking ten days... Syrian visas generally need to be gotten in YOUR country of origen. Then they will rip you off for road taxes and other fees upon entry into the country.

The country, however, is well worth the visit. Palmyra, Damascus, Crac de Chevalier are all worth a trip.

Have fun
Harvey
