Can someone please tell me how should one go about getting a work permit to work in Iran?
Does the applicant need sponsorship from an Iranian company or can he get a work permit on his own? Do Iranian embassies issue work permits or does it have to be obtained in Iran.
Thank-you in advance

Quick question as i'm a bit puzzled with this.
I'm planning to enter Jordan from Israel at the Eilat crossing, visit Petra, Kerak and then re-enter Israel via the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge. However, something I've seen made me think this won't be possible.
I won't have a multi entry visa as I'll just be getting a Visa at Tel Aviv when I arrive, so does anyone know if I'll be able to re-enter Israel from Jordan at Allenby/King Hussein Bridge or do I have to get back down to the crossing near Eilat?
I'm going to be in the ME in a few weeks, and wanted to cross through Israel overland to hit Petra. Of course the issue is that I'm planning to cross on a Saturday. I know that generally public transportation etc shuts down, and was wondering if anyone has tried this? Is it possible, or am I going to wind up crossing the border and be stuck looking for a hotel for the night?
I'd appreciate any advice--if it will be the latter I'll just spend an extra night in Egypt!
Just bought tix for a week in Jordan in April. The only unknown seems to be where to stay and what to do at the Dead Sea. Any advice on places to stay along the Dead Sea? Something along the lines of a resort/spa would be OK. Any other alternatives? Thanks in advance!

I have traveled three times on holiday to Dubai, experiencing all the Emirates but primarily Dubai as a resident on some level for a total of four months between the three excursions; I was staying with close frineds each time and learnbed the lay of the land.
After much though and persuasion from my friends (and more frineds that I made whilst there) I am very interested in relocating to Dubai. Well, Dubai is my first choice. Because of all the expat advantages that seem to abound inthe Middle East, I am also available on some of the job search sites for the other countries in the region as well. I have just received an invitation to interview for a job in Kuwait: I am wondering if I would find Kuwait to be similar in living standards as Dubai? I am unsure of delcving into other countries and finding living standards less than where I am in Denver, much less D... more »

Hi all, I plan on travelling to Jordan(Aquaba) in June.
I am looking for ideas and plans to keep me occupied for 10 days. I would like some scuba diving, sight seeing etc. Is it wise for me to rent a car and travel alone or would it be too stressful?
I am 28.
Thanks for any ideas:)

I have booked my flights and have this as a rough itinerary:
day 1: Land 8pm travel to Amman
day 2: Amman
day 3: Tour Amman to Petra stopping off at: Mount Nebo, Madaba, Dead Sea, Viva, Dana, Shobak (http://www.farahhotel.info/SitePages.aspx?Target=3)
day 4: Petra
day 5: Petra
day 6: Travel Petra to Wadi Rum
day 7: jeep tour of Wadi Rum overnight in Bendouin camp.
day 8: travel to Amman/Madaba
day 9: Amman/Madaba
day 10: fly home
The tour on day 3 will only run if there is enough people so if it is not on we plan to take the bus to Petra and then visit the Dead Sea and Mount Nebo from Madaba on day 9. If the tour does run we will decide where to stay on day 8 and 9 based on our preference after seeing both Madaba and Amman.
I am using the info on this site and Jordan Jubilee to plan travel between places.
1) Is the itinerary ok? What should i change?
2) Is it po... more »

I am planning a 23-day trip to Iran, starting mid April. My plan is to split this time more or less in half - spend around 10 days trekking/ mountaineering and the rest visiting the cities. As for some of the trekking/mountaineering, I would like to summit Mt. Damavand from the south side.
A few questions here (assuming it is mid April):
1. What, usually, are the snow conditions? I would prefer not to take crampons/ice axe, as I'd like to reduce backpack weight/size.
2. Will the huts in Polour (C1) and near Bargah e Sevom (C3) be open?
3. Is it going to be possible to buy food/water in any of the camps?
4. Is it safe to leave your stuff in C3 during the summit day? I would prefer to summit with a daypack only.
Basically my questions burn down to whether I really (really) need to carry a tent, stove, crampons/ice axe and food. I would prefer to take a mat... more »
I have spare Easyjet tickets for two passengers which we are unable to use. I am selling them (with a change of names of course). They would be perfect for a trip from London to take in the highlights of Jordan (Petra etc) and Israel departing 17th April and returning from Tel Aviv on 4th May. The dates and times are as follows:-
London Gatwick (North Terminal) to Amman (Terminal 2)
Dep 17 April 2012 12:50
Arr 17 April 2012 19:00
Tel Aviv (Terminal 1) to London Luton
Dep 04 May 2012 17:20
Arr 04 May 2012 20:50
Check in opens 04 May 2012 14:20
Check in closes 04 May 2012 16:20
Included in any arrangement we negotiated would be a £35 per person/tx charge for a change of name plus any difference between the price originally paid and the price now. You would need a PayPal account. The deal could be... more »
Has anyone been to Ras Al Khaimah?
Will be in Dubai for a week and a friend suggested I go up to check out the mountains and historical sites.
1. To get to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem just take the tram to the Mount. Herzel Stop, which happens to be the end of the line. You can walk to the museum from here, which is a very pleasant walk or you can wait for the free shuttle bus.
3. Mar Saba Monastery - officially it is closed on W/F but according to my driver the monk in charge arbitrarily decides on when it's open/closed. So, even if it's supposed to be open he might decide not to let you in.
4. Bethlehem taxi drivers will hound you for big tips at the end of your day trip. Be warned.
5. The Baha'i Gardens in Haifa will close if the wea... more »
1. The Jordan Tower Hotel in Amman is an excellent budget option right in the center next to the amphitheater.
3. Jerash buses from Amman will go even if they are not completely full.
4. Any taxi driver can be bargained with.
5. The Allenby - King Hussein bridge. The only transport is by taxi to or from the Jordanian side. On the Israeli side there is a share taxi that goes to and from the Damascus gate. The bus that takes you across the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge will charge you for the bus between borders and for your luggage as well so make sure you still have some currency on you.
6. Mt. Nebo - currently under repairs - can only walk around parts of it.
7. The admission price to Petra has increased dramatically. Now 50 JD for one... more »
1. Cairo - the book mentions that it's too far to walk from Central Cairo to the main bus station - actually it isn't. It's maybe 1/2 hour from Tahrir Square to the station.
2. Egyptian train station workers don't want to tell you about the 3rd class trains. Be persistent to get the information if you want the cheapest, albeit slowest and dirtiest of the trains.
