  • Travellers planning Trans-Siberian transit via Russia-Mongolia-China advised to double check visa regime of Russia and China at respective representatives of those countries.

 

  • Traveling to and through Mongolia by vehicle (car, truck, bus) is challenging.

But be aware that you might wait up to 24 hours at the border. To drive in and through Mongolia, you must have an itinerary plan to present to police when asked.
