Roadtrip – London 2 Jammu

Day 39: Entered Iran. Stayed at Checkpoint as Car could not be Cleared

On Way Towards Iran Border

We entered into Sarakhs pretty early in the day, plan was to get over with customs and leave for Yazd latest by evening. Iran was the first country where Carnet-de-Passage was going to be stamped, and the way the whole process moved made us feel as if we were already in India… [Coming Soon]


Day 40: Car Cleared. Left for Yazd, Iran

Finally we were done with all the formalities and we left for Yazd, it was going to be one long ride and we were getting impatient for some Iranian hospitality… [Coming Soon]

    This is such a great idea 🙂 I’ve heard of bicycle tours, people who hitchhike and of course people who road trip within a country, but driving on such a vast scale and for such a good cause I have not heard of before! Kutos to you, and thanks for inspiring me to keep going on my own journey

    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 🙂
