China : Druzba now close for motos/cars

Hi bikers,

Just to inform you that the gate of Druzba between Kazakhstan and China is nowadays close for motorbikes and cars if you do not have all your documents in chinese (driving licence / immatriculation / ...etc).

Previoulsly it was a gate , let say "flexible" or at least not as strict as the ones more in the south. But now the opportunity to cross over the border is finished... no need to go there , you will be refused.

There are two other gates more in the north of Kazakhstan but I do not know if it is possible to pass through them without difficulties. If you have any experience of these , just let me know and please give a precise feedback regarding the date you experienced it.

Thanks and have a safe trip

Hi,

I just started a thread regarding border crossing Kz - China. I do have a chinese driving license, plates/papers and insurance, but no official import papers for the bike - do you think that's sufficient? Btw, are those borders open every day or only at certain times?
