Border Crossing Uzbek to Kazakh (Tajen - extreme west of Uzb)

Post by bigbeka »

Hi there all,

I'm Uzbekistan citizen planning a trip to Ukraine from Tashekent.

Does anyone have info on the Tajen border (extreme west of Uzbekistan)?
What are the opening hours?
Any nearby city to stop over between Nukus and Atyrau (both big enough cities - but 900+KM distance in between).

And any info on Astrakhan (Kazakh - Russia border)? Or Russia - Ukraine (Rostov-on-Don border)?

Any info is appreciated.

Cheers,
Beck from Tashekent, Uzbekistan

P.S.: Please share if you have anything about route Uzbekistan to Ukraine.

Beyneu is the city where people stop, and it has all conveniences. Tajen is a normal border crossing, lots of trucks. Open 9 to 5 I think, same for Astrakhan. They are just normal border crossings, standard stuff, that is why there is not so much info on them on the border crossing pages but they are crossed often by foreigners.
