Although there seems to be lots of people who have travelled from Tabriz to Erbil by bus, it doesn't seem to be much info online about the reverse journey. So is there anyone who have gone from Erbil to Tabriz by bus recently who could share some advise like bus timetable and bus company office location ecc.
Thanks in advance guys!
I am hoping to get to Iraqi Kurdistan through Iran in July and I am an EU citizen travelling on a Swedish passport. Can anyone update me on the visa situation.
1. Is it possible to get a visa on arrival at the border? (Procedure, cost, etc.?)
2. Is it possible to get it from the Iraqi Embassy in Tbilisi, Georgia, where I will be passing through? (Again: Procedure, cost, how long does it take??)
Thankful for any information.
Several weeks ago, I traveled to Kurdistan in Northern Iraq for three days from Dubai. In summary, I felt VERY safe (my own opinion, I acknowledge), I traveled visa free, and experienced one of the best journeys of my life.
I landed at Erbil International Airport on FlyDubai. Arrival was quick and easy. I was through immigration and customs (US passport holder) in under five minutes. After a short bus ride, I met my driver and headed off. From the airplane to touring took less than 45 minutes…
I've just finished writing up a report from my October 2014 visit to Iran & Iraq, which aimed to explore the Kurdish and Assyrian regions in the north of both countries, though predominantly in Iraq. I was travelling in my own vehicle.
The trip begins on the Armenia - Iran border, and follows a circuitous route past the very foot of Ararat, at the far north-westerly tip of Iran, then runs down through Urmia to the Iraq border at Beshmaq (near…
So, I'm going to spend a few months in Iraqi Kurdistan. I'm wondering if it will be possible to buy good, zinc/titanium sunscreen there or if I should plan on packing it with me? I'm worried about my bag getting lost so I'm planning to only fly with a carry on, so I can't bring much with me.
Haven't been able to find any info anywhere else.
I am planning to visit Iran again this summer. Since I also have a friend working in Erbil at the moment, I would like to visit Iraqi kurdistan as well, thus to travel from Tehran via Sulaymaniyah, Erbil and some other places to Diyabakir (Turkey) in Turkey. However, my friend is not sure if the bordercrossing between Marivan (Iran) and Sulaymaniyah (Iraq) is open at the moment. Has anyone recently used this border crossing? If so, how was your experience?
The VOA issue for Kurdistan still…
Sorry another visa question.
I saw still under the impression as British passport holder we could get a 30 day visa on arrival into Erbil..
Now im told this might not be the case...
Can any confirm if I can or not as im due to fly Tuesday 24th
My trip from Baghdad to Basra, taking in the many millennia of history at the National Museum of Iraq, wandering through the historic Souk al-Safafeer in downtown Baghdad, climbing to the top of the Malwiya Minaret in Samarra, exploring the looted shell of one of Saddam's former Palaces, joining the throngs of Shi'ite pilgrims at Imam Husayn Shrine in Karbala, visiting the tomb of the biblical prophet Ezekiel in Al Kifl, enjoying some Iraqi 'Janoff' brand vodka on New Years Eve in Najaf, walking…
