Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Dubai to Europe by Car

Sandfox has indicated that this thread is about United Arab Emirates

I lived in Dubai for the last 2.5 years and will move back to Europe/Germany in spring and plan to take my car back with me driving from UAE through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey into Europe.

Is there anyone who has done a similar trip or even this route before who can give me hints on

- required regulations, certificates and papers for savely crossing all those borders with the car (export certificate from UAE is definitely one of them)
- tips for the best route - and what to avoid

Thanks

I guess the biggest problem will be getting a saudi arabian visa. You can get a 3 day transit visa, but only if there is no other possibility to get from UAE to Jordan.

You need a carnet de passage for Jordan. If the car is from UAE and you aren't going back from Germany to UAE you loose the deposit. That means you loose the amount of money equal to the value of the car at present. If the car is from Germany then you already know about this carnet I guess.
