Re: Long term parking Pakistan/India

Hi there,

No idea regarding Pakistan parking.

In India you are not allowed (entry with Carnet de passages/2018) to park your car for more than 6 month without a special permit.

Unfortunately I do not know where to get this permission.

Safe travelling!

Re: Better way to cross tajikistan to pakistan in self motorbike?

Re: Buy motobike Khazakstan Almaty

Hi there,

Last year I met an Australian guy who bought a cheap (sth around 3000$) Chinese dirtbike in Almaty.
He rode through the 'stans with it.
If it helps you I could try to get in touch with him to get the details.... Just drop me a pm.

Enjoy the preparation...

Re: Government-issued invitation letter required for Chinese Visa?

Hi there,

The Letter of Invitation (LOI) has to be issued by a Chinese Tourist Agency that is accredited by the Chinese Government.

It contains dates, hotel names, cities to be visited and - most important a red stamp.

Hope that helps
