Astana / Almaty Airport Customs

Post by B7474U3 »


I'm trying to find some information as to whether personal valuables for a short trip to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan need to be declared with customs upon arrival / departure? I'm talking about stuff like like an iPhone, Camera & Lenses, Laptop...etc.

I've looked online and the limited information that I can find seems to be vague, old, contradictory and differs depending on the website. There seems to be a references to unconfirmed reports of people being fined for undeclared mobile phones / laptops when leaving the country - hence the question.

There are a few scans of a Kazakhstan Customs form online - which I struggle to understand. There appears to be no reference to personal valuables other than jewellery.

Does anyone have experience of this or any insight as to whether a form needs to be completed and personal valuables declared?

Is the situation in Kyrgyzstan the same (there seems to be even less online about customs regulations there)?

Nobody asks at the borders and nobody cares.
