We arrived about nine minutes before the gatesinfo-icon opened. We noticed a large crowd waiting. Maybe people were unaware of the change from summer to winter time, and came an hour earlier than they meant to.

Passage through the checkpoint was quick and smooth, within twenty minutes there was no crowd left.

We recommend opening a passage for pedestrians, in or next to the big yellow gate that leads to the main road.
