Remarks from the International Road Transport Union

31.03.2020

Despite the fact that there are no restrictions imposed by the State Emergency Commission of Mongolia for trucks and goods crossing the Mongolian border, from 30.03.2020 foreign goods vehicles are only allowed to enter Mongolia through the border crossing points Altanbulag and Ulaanbaishint. As an additional measure, foreign goods vehicles are escorted to the point of destination or exit of the country.

Therefore, foreign carriers are strongly advised not to enter Mongolia through other border crossing points, except for Altanbulag and Ulaanbaishint, pending clear instructions from competent authorities.
