    Hi,

    I will be working in Ethiopia for quite a while (on business visa, later turned into the work permit, but NOT a diplomatic visa) - has anyone any experience with shipping the bike to Addis from anywhere in Europe?

    I'd also love to hear on how it looks paper-wise (and why is it so complicated...;)

    I intend to bring my own bike and take it back with me - so it's not an import-export thing as such.

    I'd also consider Djibouti harbour. I want to avoid paying the CDP obviously as well...

    Thanks for any tips!
