Cancelled the 2020 Mongol Rally
August 9, 2020
The Mongol Rally is an intercontinental car rally that begins in Europe and ends in Ulan Ude, Russia. The rally originally ended in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. However, to avoid punitive costs and taxes associated with vehicle imports and disposal, the rally now passes through Mongolia and ends in Ulan Ude. Entrants need a Carnet de Passage en Douana if you are travelling through Iran or Pakistan. An International Driving Permit is also highly recommended. If you are not familiar with the Mongol Rally watch the video below from the organizer. It is an extreme adventure and not for the faint hearted. The 2021 program is underway and if you purchased a carnet in 2020, ask your club for a 12-month extension*.
*12-month extension – This can generally be organised with either the carnet country club or customs. Carnet holders can apply for one 12-month extension and then a replacement carnet is required. Permission from the guarantee club, customs and/or CPD country is required.
