Car insurance in Kazakhstan

In June 2018, I could buy a car insurance on the border between Kyrgyzstan (Chon-Kapka) and Kazakhstan (Aisha-Bibi) [on the Bishkek-Taraz road] at the office of Centras Insurance. I paid 12,600 KZT (about 32 EUR) for a 1 month insurance.

Car insurance in Kyrgyzstan

In May 2018, I could not find any place where to buy a car insurance on the border between Tajikistan (Kyzyl-Art) and Kyrgyzstan (Bordobo). In Osh, I found a branch of ATN Polis insurance company and got a 1 month insurance for 1,255 KGS (about 15 EUR).

In the neighbouring town of Khujand, I did find a branch of Tojik Sugurta insurance company (http://www.tojiksugurta.tj) and got a 1 month insurance for 127 T...

Car insurance in Uzbekistan

In March 2018, on the border between Turkmenistan (Dashoguz) and Uzbekistan (Shovot), I had my car insured by O'zbekinvest insurance company (www.uzbekinvest.uz). I had to insure the car for a whole year, but the price was very reasonable: 48,000 UZS = about 5 EUR!

Re: Iran car insurance

I crossed the border between Armenia (Agarak) and Iran (Norduz) in March 2018. I asked the Iranian customs officer how to buy a car insurance. As he didn't know much about it, he made a few phone calls and eventually found an insurance broker in Siahrood, about 20 km on the road to Jolfa. The insura...

Re: Turkmenistan transit visa poll

I applied for a transit visa in Paris in the beginning of January 2018 (single male, self driving). The required dates were at the end of March. I got a positive answer by mail at the beginning of February and then picked up my visa in Istanbul.

Re: Armenia - Iran border crossing

I crossed the border AM --> IR last March with a French passport and a French car. 2 quick Armenian customs controls (declaration + inspection of the cargo). And then, surprisingly, the control is handed over to Russian border guards (2 passport controls + more serious inspection of the cargo). I un...

Police checks in Kyrgyzstan

I have driven 1 month (May-June 2018) in Kyrgyzstan. There are definitely police checks everywhere, particularly in and around towns. They like to stand where the speed limit is reduced (60 to 20 kmph). The official fines (article 232 of the traffic regulations) for speeding are 500 KGS (up to 20 km...
