Can I visit (or pass through) Altai without my invitation stating Altai?
I am on the boat from Sweden to Finland. I have just started my roundtrip to Mongolia through Russia.
The plan is to drive to Novosibisrsk and then enter Mongolia at the western end (near Ulgii). Today I discoverewd that acording to the LP guide book one has to mention Altai (Aktasch or Kosh-Agach) as a destination in the invitation.
Well I didn't think of that when I applied for the visa through an travel agency, so does that mean I'll have trouble? or is there some way around it?
On my way to Mongolia I just want to pass altai as fast as I can, but on the way back I want to stay 3-4 days for the solar ecplise.
Tomorrow I'll phone my travel agency and see if they can help me out. If everything go as planned I'll be in altai in 5-6 days, so we'll see if anything can be done in a few days...
It would be very nice to hear if someone else have had any similar problems...is it possible to get though without it? What kind of problems am I facing?
If there'll be lots of problems I'll just head to UB via Ula-Ude, but I rather not.
I'll be on the road for the next days and won't have access to internet on a regular basis, but will try to check the replys before I get to altai...
Thanks in advance!
