Exceeding the validity date of the visa is liable to a heavy fine.
Travellers wishing to visit China or Russia before or after their tour in Mongolia must obtain the necessary visa from the consulate in their home country. Indeed, it is so far not possible to obtain a visa to enter the territories of China and Russia at the border with both countries.
