Re: Caravanistan improvements: suggestions?

Hi Steven,
the recently-updated pages link (https://caravanistan.com/recently-updated/) disappeared a while ago... Can I get my (almost) daily fix of what's new on your site in any way? ;-)
Thanks!

Re: Overstay Iran

Do you have check-in luggage? If yes, you probably won't be able to check in 4 hours before departure. Other than that, this plan *should* work since once you are past passport control, you are in transit and have effectively left the country. But I am no expert in this and have no personal experien...

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. I'm going...

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: Saudi Arabia tourist visa

The Formula-E in December 2018 was apparently some sort of trial event. However, they seem to be opening up in a much more comprehensive way - or at least they are claiming that the will do so soon: https://www.saudiarabiavisa.com Here's some more information: https://gulfnews.com/world/gulf/saudi/s...

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.)
