During the war that pitted the Northern Realms against Nilfgaard, the border along the Pontar river was closed. Whoever wanted to cross at the border posts and to show a pass issued by the Redanian high command. Or, barring that, one of the convincing counterfeits sold by the shady Redanian who hung about near the river crossings.

You will have two dialogue options and you can also go straight away and help merchant’s brother in law nearby. Some of these choices reduce the amount of coin you spend, and some reduce the amount of time you spend on acquiring the fake pass.
