I am an American wanting to plan a trip from India into Pakistan but I have heard from other travellers that you will be rejected at the Pakistan border if you have a stamp in your passport from India.

Has anyone else had/heard of this problem and if so is there a way around it?

    Unless you're trying to travel through Kashmir, (don't even think about it) that sounds just this side of absurd. Oct 25, 2015 at 2:39

There are no such restrictions. If you have a valid visa for Pakistan (and you would need one), you can enter Pakistan.

Your only choice of transit is the Wagah border which is near the city of Lahore (the provincial capital of the state of Punjab, Pakistan). On the Indian side, you would start at Delhi.

There is a bus service you can take. The journey takes approximately 8 hours.

Of course, you can always fly as well.

    Currently, due to terrorism risk, the bus drops everyone off at the border, and you walk across yourself. You then board another bus for the remainder of the journey. Oct 25, 2015 at 21:09
