Re: New Railway Baku-Tiblisi-Kars (Turkey)

Any update on this? I found this a while ago: https://jam-news.net/we-dont-leave-until-were-paid-workers-on-georgian-section-of-baku-tbilisi-kars-railroad-on-strike/ - there's also some interesting background information on the project and its impact (or lack thereof) on local communities.

Re: Cancelling flight booking for China visa application: best practices

Assuming you have enough funds to do this, wouldn't it be easiest to buy full-fare tickets (booking classes Y, W or J) that are fully refundable without cancellation charges even weeks after you purchased them? (I admit I haven't tried this myself - so if there's a snag here, please let me know...)

Re: Turkmenistan Airlines banned by EASA

Re: Visa free Iran for Malaysian in land border

Well - everything I've heard or seen so far suggests the answer is "yes, no problem". However, you only get 15 days. (My wife is Malaysian, but we entered Iran via IKA.)
Once you have crossed, maybe you could report back to confirm to make it easier for future travellers?

Re: IRAN e-visa rejection trying to get a VOA at the airport anyway

I've read about people doing this successfully (but can't remember where), but I haven't heard about anybody who tried and was sent back at the airport. So I suppose it's your best bet to try it out.

Re: Single female travelling to Mazar-i-Sharif and Kabul

I would assume the answer is "No!", but have a look here: https://www.lostwithpurpose.com/country/afghanistan/. Some of the information was updated in October 2018.
