|Date of Border Crossing||30.6.2006|
|Point of Entry||Sarpi from Turkey|
|Passport and Visa||Passport has to be valid for at least another 6 months. No visa was required! (I know this sounds incredible, but it is true at least for Swiss citizens.)|
|Insurance||They did not check if we had valid insurance (we didn't).|
|Drivers Licence||Did not get checked, but I am sure that you are required to have one.|
|Motorcycle papers||We had to show our 'Technical Passport' as they call it, which is the vehicle registration papers from home. (Fahrzeugausweis)|
|Licence plates||Licence plates from home country are sufficient.|
|How it went||
As you leave the Turkish border you drive up to a little
booth on the left hand side. This is the immigration office. Here we had
to show our passports. The officer at first was very surprised to see
that we did not have a visa (which made my heart stop!). But then he checked
a list, which seemed so confirm, that Swiss citizens don't need a visa.
So our passports got stamped an we were waved up to the customs building.
|Point of Exit||Krasny Most to Azerbaijan|
|How it went||As this was the 'right' border, meaning the one listed in our temporary import papers it was no problem. (The day before we had tried exiting through the other border to Azerbaijan and there was no way they could be persuaded to let us pass!) Beside the temporary import papers we also had to show our passports. These only got stamped after the Azerbaijan visa had been scrutinized thoroughly!|
Neither entry or exit costs a single dime!
