Self drive from Russia to Kazakhstan to Mongolia

Postby IanKing » Sat Oct 19, 2013 7:41 am

Hi,

I'm currently mid-way through the planning stages of a self drive tour from England to Malaysia and I would be extremely grateful for any advice on this portion of our journey. We'll be heading into Kazakhstan from Russia, then back into Russia to cross into Mongolia and then China. Would anyone be able to confirm the following for me please?

Can I get a Kazakhstan tourist visa from Russia as I will be taking several months travelling through Europe after I leave the UK?
I understand I need to go back into Russia to cross into Mongolia so can I get a transit visa from Kazakhstan?
Similarly can I also get a Mongolian tourist visa from either Russia or Kazakhstan?

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Ian

1. Yes - https://caravanistan.com/visa/kazakhstan/ - Omsk, St Petersburg, Moscow
2. Probably, maybe, it's complicated, but should be possible - https://caravanistan.com/visa/russia
3. Yes, Almaty is very easy, probably Astana no problem either.

See embassy reports on the articles listed above for more info.
