Hi,
We have booked our flight to Iran today here in Switzerland. So far so good. However, the travel agent informed us about a new visa regulation, which apparently has been in effect for two weeks now. It says that in order to get a visa you have to provide a list with prebooked hotels. He did not offer us any advice since this situation is new for them as well...
Has anyone obtained a visa recently and how did it go regarding this issue?
Thanks!
Paul

Rafael Morgulis,
I have used a rental car from "Gold Car"-company for the first time.
So we ordered a car (by website of DISCOVER car hire -Ford FOCUS) from10.05.206 for 10 days in station near Rome Fiumicino.
We arrived to the mentioned station on 10.05.2016 at about 7 p.m.
A guy from the station saw my Israel driving license (everything was written in English) and explained to me that there was no chance to have the ordered car because my license is not international and not accepted in Italy. I…

Hello! I will be spending the summer in Oman and will have some time to travel July 1-9 inclusive. I see that July 6-9 are all public holidays for the Eid. Having accidentally rocked up in KL one year only to find it largely closed for several days, what exactly can I expect in Oman, on a scale of "government offices and banks" to "full-scale ghost town"? And will the UAE (specifically Dubai and/or Abu Dhabi) differ in any way? This period will be my only chance to get away for anything…

Hello,

I have been searching online and thought I'd try asking here for some advice on planning a trip to Israel. I want to leave within the next month or so and I am thinking of spending about 10 days there.

I recently decided that I'd like explore my Jewish heritage (which I know almost nothing about) and thought it might be neat to visit Israel. I am a little too old for a birthright trip (31), but I am looking for a similar experience, I think. I will be traveling alone and thought it…

Having just returned from a 23 day trip through Iran, I can 100% recommend the excellent Private Guide/Driver I organised and used throughout, Ramin Khosfian - khosfian24@gmail.com - based in Yazd, hometown Mashhad but able to meet up anywhere.

Ramin has full permission/authorisation from the Iran Ministry of Tourism to guide Americans and Brits, for whom this is still mandatory.

Ramin efficiently arranged all accommodation but is open to suggestions, if you have them. His car was…
