I read I have two passports/nationalities. How do I use them when I travel? but the answers mention air travel. I'm interested in using 2 passports at a land border. At a land border crossing, can I use passport A to exit one country and use passport B to enter the neighboring country?
- I live in country A and I have nationality A.
- I fly to country-1, which gives citizens of A a visa on arrival.
- Country-1 does not give citizens of B a visa on arrival.
- B citizens must get an expensive visa before departure for country-1.
- Now I want to travel overland from country-1 to country-2.
- At the land border country-2 charges citizens of country A an expensive visa on arrival fee.
- At the land border country-2 gives B citizens a free visa on arrival.
- (Another concern: eventually this overland journey arrives in country B, of which I have a passport. I'm worried what country B will do if the stamp of the neighboring country is not in my passport.)
A picture to illustrate the land crossing:
Can I swap passports at the land border? Or will the immigration officials of country 2 not allow this?
