Egypt

One month Egypt visa, December 2009. Entry at Sharm el Sheikh (20 Dec) and exits at Taba (22 Dec) and Sharm el Sheikh (27 Dec). The last exit closed the visa (stamp on the visa label), while the Taba exit seems not to have done so. Entry stamp at Taba with text "Valid for Aqaba Cosst & St. Cathriane for 15 Days" (sic!). Since the visa (left) probably was not closed it was thereafter anyway no problem for me to go to Cairo by own car and return to Sharm el Sheikh.

Lithuania

Still three months after the Lithuanian independence in 1991 it was only possible to get issued a 10 days one-entry visa. This was somewhat complicated for us foreigners living in Lithuania wishing to have a legal stay! Just after the independence I went from Vilnius to Riga. At the border I requested a stamp in order to prove when I had been outside the country. But even at the main highway from Latvia to Lithuania there was no passport control yet, only custom's control. Anyway I barely got a custom's stamp in my passport with handwritten date, so I dared to apply for a visa. (The reason for this was probably that Lithuania did not yet have any proper migration law.)
In 1998 as a journalist I got issued a Lithuanian service stay permit. In 2001 I got issued the "last" Lithuanian stay permit – number LT999999!

Poland

This is the ordinary visa I got on 26 July 1990 from the Polish embassy in Oslo. Notice entry stamp from Warsaw on 24 Oct 1990. After I came to Poland I was invited to Vilnius by the Supreme Soviet of the Republic of Lithuania. Returning from Lithuania on 3 Nov 1990 by train through the Byelorussian Soviet Republic it was discovered after passing into Poland that I had only an one-entry visa to this country. Therefore on the border between Soviet Union and Poland it was issued (for a small amount of zlotys) an emergency entry visa. By some reason I did not need any extra exit visa!

Soviet Union

This Soviet visa to the Republic of Lithuania I got at the Soviet consulate in Warsaw on 26 
Oct 1990 prior to my first visit to Lithuania. The visa was valid from 1 to 10 Nov 1990, but 
actually we landed in Moscow on 30 Oct, and did not get any problem. Maybe due to 
the fact that it was a correspondent visa. The document was registered at OVIR in Vilnius 
on 31 Oct, the next day after arrival.
This Soviet visa I got from the Soviet consulate in Oslo previous to my visit to Lithuania 
before the 1991 revolution. On the very day of the Moscow coup d'etat I had to rush to the 
Vilnius OVIR office in order to get the needed registration. Four days later it was clear that 
Lithuania de facto was an independent country.
