I hear you have to re-register your vehicle on arrival, how log does it take, how much does this cost and I hear you have to pay bribes to continue

    we are overlanding from London to Capetown in 5 weeks from now, wanter to ride through Syria, but due to war this option is out, now we would like to ride through egypt but no ferries from turkey or cyprus or venice, and if we can reach egypt I hear very bad things about the trouble you are given to re-register your vehicle, waste long days trying to get numberplates, pay bribes to get through road-blocks etc. is this true? over 8 years ago

    When we overlanded it through the Western Desert (i.e. the Sahara) from Aswan to Abu Simbel near the Sudanese border, we were required to assemble in a convoy in Aswan. An armed soldier always rode in the leading bus. Can't remember whether it was the same across the eastern desert from Hurghada to Cairo. I was on a coach trip so it was all very cosseted. over 8 years ago

    If you travel with an overland travel company you won't have a problem at all. There are loads of trucks travelling that route every week and they don't have a problem. over 8 years ago
