Kye-Ossi is the end station of the road 38 km away from the town of Ambam. Customs authorities and security corps (Gendarmerie and Police) have offices which are functioning 7 days a week from 07H00 to 18H00. Many check points are open on the way. Most of the trucks crossing the border contain mainly food produced in Cameroon to supply the markets of Equatorial Guinea.

Transport vehicles for passengers between Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea are not allowed to cross the border on both side. From the side of Cameroon passengers are required to cross by foot with their effects, usually local food products to take the vehicles waiting in the Guinea landscaped parking. Concerning Cameroonian trucks transporting food products to supply the Guinean market, there isn’t any restriction after the payment of the CEMAC Circulation Certificate.
