Visasfilter: for which countries can I obtain a visa for while traveling, as opposed to in my own country? Difficulty: Canadian.
posted by StoneSpace to travel & transportation (3 answers total)
I'm planning an extended trip, and I want flexibility. I suppose I also have issues with planning.
My ideal itinerary takes me from Europe into Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, across the Caspian sea to Central Asia and China, and then, hopefully, taking the trans-siberian back.
Thus, I want to ask for experiences with obtaining visas during traveling for: Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, China, and Russia. Russia appears particularly annoying. I've seen that one can get a visa for China in Ulan-Bataar, and thus I am hoping such a thing is also possible from Bishkek or Dushanbe. The Chinese embassies websites for these cities are 1) Russian/Chinese and despite Gtranslate 2) quite uninformative.
Any help appreciated! Thanks.
(P.S. I am aware that Russian will be helpful and am considering doing the trip the other way around, allowing for a few months of Russian classes in St-Petersburg or somesuch first)
(And let's finish with a funfact: residents of San Marino can go to China without a visa)
