For Vehicle

CPD (Carnet de Passages en Douane) is not required for the countries on my list except for Senegal and this requirement is only for vehicles older than 5 years. I can imagine why this is…

So for this purpose I do not have to contact Swedish Motormännes to get the CDP.

 

Summary

So it looks like that some of required visas can be acquired from Finland, but probably the place for the rest of those is again our friend VES visa-Express service in Berlin, Germany: https://www.expressvisa.de. I have used their services now for couple of years and have always got just perfect service in agreed time period!

Can highly recommend this company.
