Transit visa in Xinjiang overland?

Postby aspenhill » Sun Jun 24, 2018 4:57 pm

Hi all!

I will be traveling from Ulgii, Mongolia to Almaty, Kazakhstan this fall. I would like to travel through Urumqi in Xinjiang, China, but only if I can get a transit Visa - since I'll just be traveling through, I don't think getting a tourist visa is worth the extra money. From what I've read, I'm not sure if it is even possible to receive an overland transit visa in the Xinjiang province - does anybody know if this is doable?

And if it isn't, I would love suggestions of how else to get from Ulgii to Kazakhstan (I'm open to traveling through Russia instead of China).

Through Russia, take the following road: ... -mongolia/

I don't know about the Chinese transit visa, do let us know if you get any more updates on that. The Russian transit visa should not be a problem for you.
