Something not right?

Description

This border closes at 6pm.

We didn’t had problem but we also didn’t had a car.

Bad road from Gabú to here, and bad road from here to Koundara. Koundara-Labé (April 2018) asphalted except 25Km in the middle.

Latest Check-Ins

Boarder formalities fine, the road either side wasn't great but in particular the road through 'no Mans land' was terrible, it had rained heavily last night and the road was essentially had a gully/riverbed down the middle of it.

very easy border crossing, both sides are very friendly maybe 15 minutes in total. Carnet both sides no problem.

just a little update, also lacking information on this crossing so figured I would share. My experience is leaving Bissau to Conackry.
Customs and passport stamping out done in the same place. They weren't sure about what to do with the passavant. They stamped it and gave it back. I didn't really care because they let me leave the border so no problem. The Conackry side was also easy and friendly. I guess if you already have your visa sorted you won't have a problem. They will tell you to park at the douane and then walk up the road 30m to immigration. Go to immigration and get stamped in, friendly dude. Go back to duoane, he just records your details, says you don't need a passavant but I will be getting one tomorrow morning here in Koundara since I've had some unfriendly experiences with cops and customs a few times now and could not be bothered with the argument about the passavant.

The road...at least for motorbikes is totally fine in the dry on the Bissau side from Gabu. The usual potholes and broken road for a while, which bikes can just avoid off the side. last 20km or so is easy piste, averaged about 70km/h. The Conackry side is a bit of a laugh, would not enjoy it in a 4x4 due to the probable slow progress, but on a bike in the dry it's generally fine but a bit slow going just taking a bit of care. The road on the Conackry side maaaaay be possible in a 2wd but you would be needing a lot of spotting I think to get through without a problem. I guess the ferry may be the easier route for cars. Fine for 4x4 but slow progress in spots. There, all the information you were ever wondering about this crossing :)

Easy border. No problems, no asking for money.

Very unfriendly border. Haggled on the visa price and wanted more than one hundred euro for a transit Visum. We just decided to leave the border and go back to guinea to go directly to Senegal...
