PostSubject: Traveling trough israel   Sat Mar 14, 2015 7:25 pm

Hi all,

My Girlfriend and I are planning a trip from Dubai to Durban . We want to go up through Europe and down the west cost of Africa. Has anybody travelled through Israel and know if the border stamps your carnet. I know they don't stamp your passport but an Israely stamp on your carnet could create major issues when entering other countries.

Thanks

Would be interested to hear what route plan would take you from Dubai, through Europe and then down East Africa and how you would reach Israel. Up through Iran and Turkey?

As to Israel, the only safe way in at the moment would be through Saudi, then Jordan and across into Israel. Assuming you can get visas and permissions, once in though you are pretty much at a dead end. North leads into Lebanon but you cannot get out through Syria (war). West, is the Sinai which is in a state of war and the borders mostly closed. East is Iraq and straight into ISIL territory, and south only leads back to Saudi. Israel does stamp passports now, where they used to only put in a slip of paper, so imagine if you got there your carnet would get stamped as well.

I have always wanted to go down through Turkey, across Syria and see the crusader castles, Jordan and Petra....but damn inconvenient all these wars at the moment!

Hi Tembo,

Thanks for all the info, to give you an idea on the route want we are trying to achieve, I will be leaving from Dubai up through Saudi. Amanda will then fly to Jordan where I will collect her. Then into Israel . We have been given permission to put our car on a cargo ship from Israel to Cyprus. Then ferry from cyprus to turkey. From there pretty standard until Spain across to morocco . Down the we west coast of Africa until Gabon Angola across small section of the DRC into Rwanda Uganda Kenya Tanzania mozam until reaching home in Durban . Then car onto row row back to Dubai to work.

So my biggest issue right now is resolving the Israel issue. The stamps create a major issue I'm told .

Sounds very cool! And ambitious! I am in Jordan at the moment, so will ask around about any issues crossing from here into Israel with stamps/carnets.
