Re: Corona virus border closures

Another possibility - try to call the embassy in DE (call not e-mail so that you can ask anonymously - you never know how they collect data :)) I'd recommend the opposite - do not expect any data protection in Uzbekistan, and a print-out of a (positive) answer by e-mail might help in an argument wi...

Re: Russian business visa, work details

Each Russian embassy likes to make up their own rules about visas, no idea how the embassy in Dublin(?) deals with business visa applications, but usually, they don't really care about your job. I also have second question. I've been told now that if I haven't gotten a Russian tourist visa before, I...

Re: Embassy report: Turkmen transit visa in London

As Turkmenistan has more or less closed its borders due to coronavirus (panic) until further notice, there is no point in processing applications as it's unclear when they open again.

Re: Corona virus border closures

Not just rumors, the border is closed and the entire town of Taftan quarantined. I would GTFO there.

Re: Corona virus border closures

Armenia and Pakistan have closed their borders too. Iran is now inaccessible by land. (or not, as the Azeri border might still be open)

Re: Corona virus border closures

This article https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51591091 , which notes that Iran is up to 4 deaths, quotes a doctor who says that the virus is likely now present in all major Iranian cities. I would watch Iranian borders and quarantine regulations. Yep, the Iranian government is trying to suppress...

Re: Corona virus border closures

As the first post still says that flights and trains between Mongolia and China continue: Both have been cancelled in the meantime.

Re: Coronavirus Monitoring

German MFA says the same, the measure affects all travelers from countries with more than 10 cases of 2019-nCoV. Totally absurd, but here we go.

Re: Valid Pakistan Visa in Old Passport Still Valid?

Logic is not everything here though. Some countries (even the USA!) are fine with you arriving with a valid visa in an old, invalid passport and a new passport. The USA stamp the new passport with a note saying "VIOP" (visa in old passport) in such a case. I have no idea about Pakistan, but the ques...
