My daughter is leaving for Bahrain as a MA1, is it a good idea to have her car shipped. save and practical?
It's doable, but it may not be the best idea. Depending on the circumstances, she may be able to have it paid for, though I don't think that usually applies to POVs. A friend of mine said her son had a car shipped to the region with this company https://www.a1autotransport.com/ship-car-to-bahrain.php Just fair warning: it's not cheap and it sounds like it's not easy even when everything goes right.
(Sorry, I just realized this is from 2012! Hopefully this can help others that have the same question :)
