Re: Ferry updates in Baku/Alat port

As promised I keep you updated about our story.. Vika told us in the morning that the boat was leaving in the evening from Alat. So we had to run to the ticket office in Baku (located in the north port of Baku, NOT in the old port) and then we had no choice than catch a taxi to go to Alat in the aft...

Uzbekistan embassy in Baku and two-days gap in passport

Re: Kazakhstan trains from Aktau or Aytrau to Shymkent

The procedure is always the same, you call in the morning, if there is a boat you go to the office, buy the t...

Re: Registration in Azerbaijan

We confirm the 10 days time frame to register. We went today at the immigration office in Baku after 8 days we entered the country and there was no problem at all. We are not sleeping in hotels, so we had to show the copy of our host's ID card. Side comment: the document they give you is ridiculous....
