The border with China can now be crossed in a car
In the government of the Russian Federation Signed an order on the introduction of amendments to the Agreement between the governments of Russia and China on the checkpoints on the Russian-Chinese state border. Individuals crossing the border at Pogranichny-Suifenhe, Starotsurukhaituysky-Heishantou, Zabaikalsk-Manchuria and Kruskino-Hunchun border crossing points will be able to cross the Russian-Chinese state border by car.

At the moment, the agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the People's Republic of China on border crossing points on the Russian-Chinese state border from 27 January 1994 provides for the movement across the state border of only freight and passenger motor vehicles.

At the same time, in automobile checkpoints across the state border of the Russian Federation, Zabaikalsk and Starotsuruhaytuysky, on the basis of a bilateral agreement of the border regions of Russia and China, and subject to limiting the depth of passage on the territory of the adjacent side, persons are passed through on passenger vehicles.

The construction projects (reconstruction) of the automobile checkpoints Kraskino and Pogranichny provide for the creation of infrastructure for individuals to cross the border in cars. Completion of these items is planned for 2016 and 2017 respectively.

During the 24-26 August 2015 meeting in Beijing, the meeting of the Working Group on the Sub-Commission for Transport Cooperation Working Groups of the Commission for the Preparation of Regular Meetings between the Heads of Government of Russia and China and the Chinese Side, an agreement was reached on amending the Agreement regarding the procedure for crossing the Russian -Chinese border by car.

By a signed decree, the Russian Foreign Ministry received instructions to exchange notes on this issue.

The draft of the note is proposed to amend the Agreement providing for the possibility of crossing the Russian-Chinese state border by individuals on passenger cars at the border checkpoints Pogranichny-Suifenhe, Starotsurukhaituysky-Heishantu, Zabaikalsk-Manchuria and Kraskino-Hunchun.

The exact terms of opening of these checkpoints for international passenger traffic will be determined in the order established by paragraph 3 of Article 2 of the Agreement by exchanging with the Chinese Party the appropriate notes through diplomatic channels.

The order complies with the provisions of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union dated 29 May 2014 year, as well as the provisions of other international treaties of the Russian Federation.
