Hello All,

I need to get myself, my partner and a Land Rover from Turkey to India and am reluctant about going through Pakistan for safety and visa issues.
Has anyone done an overland journey through Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Oman and shipped a vechicle from there? Or a similar journey?

Many Thanks

Personally, I wouldn't drive through way, no how. Sorry that's all I can offer...

Driving via Pakistan is not a big problem as such the road is good and as for the security genral tourist does not have to face any problems here We have independent travellers coming still via Iran to Pakistan.

The Visa is certainly an issue you need to have a travel agent to organise it and to organise it you would need to get their services to book hotels.
