People at the Zemo Larsi border checkpoint between Georgia and Russia spend hours in queues waiting to cross the border. During the summer season the flow of the passengers crossing Zemo Larsi check point has tripled. The checkpoint works for 24 hours but the queues remain. The Russian side of the checkpoint is the most problematic, as its works very slowly. Daily, the Zemo Larsi checkpoint is crossed by around 1,300 cars. They face simple procedures from the Georgian side but complicated formalities from the Russian side.
