Re: Coronavirus border closures

Asking for a friend trying to get into Georgia from Turkey - does anyone know if the land border is open to foreigners and what the rules would be? Can't find any up to date info. Thanks!

Re: Anyone Stuck?

My partner and I are stuck in Tbilisi, Georgia and we'd be happy to talk. We actually intended to be going into Tajikistan right now but alas we're still here. My email is [email protected] and YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/cycleourworld if you want to get in touch.

Re: Coronavirus border closures

I just noticed that the Azerbaijan e-visa website is up and running again after being closed for about a week - has anyone applied yet? They don't refund application money and I've already lost $25 on my first visa they cancelled so I'm curious as to whether they're really giving visas again to use ...

Re: Coronavirus border closures

Yep, mine and my partner's Azerbaijan e-visas were cancelled with no given option of a refund. Very annoying as they were supposed to be still valid for use up to 3 months from now so they still would've been useful after the 45-day Azeri closure. Stuck in Tbilisi until further notice...

Re: Is there a safe(ish) way overland from Central Asia to India?

Overland through Afghanistan on the main routes includes the occasional Taliban checkpoint. And then there are people far worse than the Taliban. Non-Taliban will gang rape you both endlessly, doesn't matter your gender. Really, the Taliban is the best case scenario these days. But even then they j...

Re: Coronavirus border closures

Today I got an email that my Azerbaijan E-visa is canceled. I’m now in Georgia. Is this a new policy? I'm in Georgia and my partner and I have Azerbaijan e-visas waiting to be used - not received anything yet about them being cancelled. Maybe it's just yours got cancelled for a different reason, wi...

Re: Caspian sea ferry updates & questions

I heard that the ferry was stopped recently, and now is back on. Anyone close to the port with any news?
