    Hi Shoeb,

    It would actually depend on which country/ies you wish to enter?
    1. Many countries accept “Carnet-De-Passage”, it is a visa kinda document for vehicles.
    2. China has its own mechanism and charges heavy duty on vehicles entering China, they wont even recognize international license.
    3. You are free to cross borders within Europe provided you have valid motor insurance.

    Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂
