Russian Caucasus

Re: Russian visa for baikonur town

However, for an additional fee of about 500-1000 Tenge (per person) one can ask the taxi (or bus) drivers to sneak yourself into town. The following phrases can help; "У меня нет пропуска" (I don't have a permit) "Можете провезти через КПП без пропуска?" (Could you take me/us th...

Re: Registration as turist in Kazakhstan

Landed and left the country in Almaty. They told me at landing that I didn't need to register, but only to keep migration card.
At departure no hassles, got passport stamped and left.

Re: Itinerary in Kazakhstan

Re: Itinerary in Kazakhstan

Vladex rental company told me that dropping the car in Astana instead of Almaty would cost 50.000 tenge extra. Basically it would be the same price as the 2 extra days of renting the car and drive it back to Almaty, and I would lose 2 days where I can fly to Aktau. I know also about international dr...
