On arrival by means of motor vehicle, the Pass Control Officer will stamp the passport of vehicle´s owner in border certificate with a mark „temporary entrance“, and the Officer enables the vehicle to enter. Nevertheless, the vehicle must leave Mongolia within six months. Central Customs Authority could prolong the stay of the vehicle for another six months. While driving the motor vehicle, you need international driving licence. On arrival to Ulaan Baatar, you are obliged to pay a toll.

So, we wish to recommend you to obtain the Russian bilateral (two-sided) visa in advance, before you start your trip there. Moreover, would you carefully fill in Russian customs declaration, just in a moment of entering Russian territory.
