Georgia to Armenia
We left Georgia already after three days because most passes are still closed or to dangerous due to snow. We changed our plan and are visiting Armenia the next month and then come back to Georgia.

We crossed the Gyumri (Bavra) border 7 april 2023 and there where no cars and just a few trucks. Getting out of Georgia went fast, the officers wanted to see the cabin from the inside and stamped our passports. Basco, our dog, was greeted but as at any border no checking of any health or dog passports.
The Armenie passport check went fast and minutes later we where ready to have the truck weighed.
Allthough we were the only ones we had to wait for an officer for allmost an hour.
After this we where directed to the X-ray. The officer got nervous, but it was our dog still in the Unimog and not an hidden passenger.

The last step was to pay the € 20,- customs fee and get all the documents verified by the customs officer. Although I was the only one there the computer work took almost an hour. Be aware, there is no ATM and only cash is accepted. US$, €, GEL and AMD.
The last form to fill out was a statement about the insurance which we had applied for and paid a day before. https://aswa.am 90 days is around euro 30,- Formally you must print this form and have it visible behind you windscreen.
We booked the insurance online via asma.am. The costs for one month euro 20,-
