Salaam, y'all. So, anyone here have experience getting a Letter of Invitation to Kazakhstan but not from a travel agency? Just curious about:

  1. Is it possible to get a non-agency LOI?
  2. If it's possible, what exactly do we need in order to make a LOI?

The details:

  • So, we've got a friend from a country that, unfortunately, requires a LOI to visit Kazakhstan. (China - PRC, not Hong Kong) This LOI is for him.

  • Besides that, our friend doesn't want to take any of the "stock…

Hello all,

Our Turkmenistan transit visa is refused. We are in Iran now and planning to book a flight to Aktau, in Kazachstan. We are Dutch citizens and have our Uzbek visa. As a Dutch citizen you will get a 15 day free visa on arrival for Kazachstan. But we cannot find out if we need an onward ticket/ roundtrip ticket for Kazachstan. Or shall an one way ticket from Iran to Kazachstan be enough? We need to know in order not to get refused again (at the airport). I hope it will be enough if we…

Visa on border

Hello fellow travelers
does anyone out there know if it is possible to get visas on the Russian/Kazakhstan border when coming from Russia for Australians. We are traveling in our own vehicle. I thought this was introduced last year but can't seem to find any information on it.
Love to hear from anyone with up to date information
happy traveling everyone.

Hi
Is it possible to get a double-entry visa for Kazakhstan in Tbilisi?
I have a New Zealand passport.
If so, what is the validity period?
I aim to fly to Almaty from Tbilisi and go overland to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan before returning to Almaty and flying out.
So a double-entry visa might work.
Otherwise I guess one must get two separate single-entry visas...one in Tbilisi and one in Bishkek ???

I'll be arriving in Beyneu on a Train from Moscow on Friday 22 July at 16:30. From Beyneu I Need to get to Aktau as fast as possible.

I know there is a Train, but it doesn't leave Beyneu until 20:09 (arriving at Mangystau, 25 km from Aktau, at 06:10 the next morning.)

So, is it possible to hitchhike or take a marshrutka from Beyneu? What does a marshrutka on that route cost (in tenge), so that I can actually pay for the Minibus?

Also, can I Exchange my euros for tenge at the Beyneu Train…

Hi all
I have 4 full days to spend in Almaty, but since there's not much to see there, I thought I'd check out Bishkek too, for 100$ two way.
Is it worth the road trip from Almaty to Bishkek by car or taxi? Is there anything to see besides steppe and potentially Tamgaly?

Any recommendations on what to visit in ALA or FRU?

Thanks!
