Got TIP here. They tried to charge us 10,000 each for 3 motorbikes . But it’s free. They even were writing receipts for us but After about 5 minutes arguing politely we said “well I can call my embassy and they can confirm the price for me” they handed them to us and let us go.

At the small roundabout and you come into Bitam 300m before the police.
Smooth enough. He asked for money and provided a receipt. Was 10,000CFA for both bikes but we only got one receipt.
We got our SIM card and read the other experiences here not paying after it was too late. Maybe push to not pay.

We lost so much time at the police check that we arrived just one time for a TIP.

However, just like the last two borders they had this whole story that we needed to leave a bond if we do not have a Carnet. When we showed all these stories on Ioverlander(for what it's worth) and said that a month ago a TIP was easy and free. The chef said nothing is free and he showed all his diplomas to prove that he really wasn't corrupt and it costs us XAF 5 000,-

Somehow, after 20 min. listening he closed his office and another lady wrote the passavant and handed it over without asking for money.

So eventually it was still free.
