After some trouble I managed to send someone in Egypt to the auto club and ask about how it's done. First time they told him that I have to get a CdP from Canada before I travel and this is the only way, but after the information I got from fretje here I asked my friend in Egypt to go again and explain the situation further. After telling them that there is ...

I have done this last year (2010) with a friend of mine. We arrived at the Egyption border in Nuweiba (with the boat from Jordan) without a CdP.

I have travelled to Africa via the Middle East with a carnet, though another overlander managed without too much trouble to get through to Ethiopia without a carnet where he sold his car. Egypt was more expensive but took no longer than the rest of us. I continued to travel to the south finally leaving Mozambique with an expired carnet. I then entered Kenya ...

Lahore isn't far at all from the border and is a huge city, so if anywhere allows you to buy insurance, Lahore will. I can't seem to find any info on it immediately, but you could try talking to the chaps at The Regale Internet Inn who are just the nicest people you could possibly meet, they may well have the appropriate contacts. I can only imagine the ...
