 Tips On Leaving The Boat for Land Travel

"The most critical thing to research before leaving your boat behind in a foreign country is to make darn sure you will be "allowed" back across the border. The problem with traveling out of a foreign country arises on your return; the immigration guy at the airport (or wherever) is going to wonder why you don't have a return ticket. Never mind that your flight originated in his country. He or she will want to know how you are departing again. Before leaving your boat contact immigration, and try to obtain some sort of form that proves you have a boat and that it will be your means of departure. This will save a lot of hassles because airport officials are very inflexible. We learned this lesson, and many others, the hard way. It seems that we are always having issues with immigration officers."
