Re: Iran Visa In Pakistan - Online Application

Hi sasa, here are the embassy reports for Islamabad https://caravanistan.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2949 Not sure where you read that Pakistanis are not available for e-visa. E-visa is valid for all countries. Please note it is not a real e-visa, just an electronic application for the LOI. ht...

Re: China Visa In Pakistan - Group Tour?

I know Pakistanis are very good at dealing with the many strict visa requirements thrown at them, so perhaps ask how to circumvent this rule in a Pakistani travel forum? Best option that immediately springs to mind (you will have to research yourself if it's possible) - transit visa. Otherwise (like...

Re: Tajik evisa-two evisas instead of double entry visa

Hi sorry for the late reply, i was just wondering how the 2 e-visas work. could i buy for example 2 e-visas that cover exactly the same dates and would this allow me to enter the whakhan and leave at any time during this period?

Re: What to pack

Not sure if Decathlon exists where you live but their Quechua brand is good. I find they make affordable outdoor clothing of high quality. Perhaps not as good as the expensive brands, but good enough for most of us and at 20% of the price. Tent, sleeping bag and mattress: I guess that depends on how...

Re: Security situation in Xinjiang - leave your thoughts

Even in Xinjiang, you should be safer than if you were in Paris, Barcelona, London, or Istanbul. The thread is not about the security risk in Xinjiang, which is low.

Oh, I see!

No, hotel booking is not necessary. I would definitely not mention your girlfriend at all, ever. And take care where you meet. We already had some people get their girlfriends in trouble.

Re: Best time to travel?

The Khunjerab pass border crossing is officially opened from April 1st until 30th of November, but closure can happen earlier due to weather conditions or landslides.
