Unfortunately I was unable to go to the Department of Naturalization and Residency and get a new stamp in my passport as I can’t get two stamps in a row.
As my company license isn’t ready yet I’m officially a “tourist” in Dubai (since 6 months) which means I’ve to do VISA runs every 30-40 days. Very annoying and without a visa there are a lot of things you can’t do. But when we’re back here in September and I get my license, there’ll be no more visa runs!
So this means, me and Erik have to drive the boring way through boring desert to the Oman border and leave the country for 5 minutes and then come back! So stupid but no choice…
Last time I went to the Oman border I brought my poor mum who had to follow me in the car. The administration by the border isn’t very efficient and you have to leave the car like 10 times before you’re done. She said “Can we really do this on our own? I would have felt so much better if Erik was here with us!”
By the border in February. Very hot, very tired and very nervous!
The view from our car window for 1,5h.
Sand, sand, sand as far as you can see…
