is this 1 year "on request" thingy ? or I need to pull off some story ?
Do i need to pay extra for that ?
Actually, it looks like it is always valid for 12 months now. It was 3 months until sometime last year.
Kyrgyzstan is the last country which entered the union, and even border guards can be not so updated with infos.
Just tell them you need 12 months. No money involved.

So on the russian/georgian border I request regular papers for visa duration right ?
and i contuinue with these through kazakhstan ? or I return these at russian/kazakh border and get there new ones to overland kazakhstan ?
Do i give these away on Kazakh/Uzbekistan border ?

thank you !
On the Georgia/Russia border they will give you temporary import papers. They should be valid for 12 months: please report here when you cross and tell us if this is the case.
You should keep those papers and show them at the Russia/Kazakh border. The Kazakh guards will put some of your infos in their computers and give you back the papers.
At the Kazakhstan/Uzbekistan border, Kazakhs will close the temporary importation and they will keep the papers you had since entering Russia.

My friends crossed yesterday from Tajikistan to Kyrgyzstan at Bor Dobo. They had temporary import papers for CU valid for 6 months.
They did not asked for 12, as they don't need them, so I don't know if it is possible to obtain it at that border (you should, but nobody reported back about that).
If you cross there, please ask and report back to us,
thank you

Hi guys! Also for us are very good news! we retire our car from UlanBator custom warehouse at the end of July and reenter in Russia driving to Vladivostok so at the russian border we must declare that our car stops in Vladivostok up to 1 year right? The owner of the car can leave russia without problem i guess?

This is an interesting thread. I would like to leave my vehicle in Uzbekistan (Tashkent) for several months from January- I understand that Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan (and Tajikistan?) are part of the customs union with Russia (so, OK to leave 12 months there). But what about Uzbekistan? Have there been any reports following up the below posts? (If Uzbekistan is complicated I guess one could drive to Kyrgyzstan which is very tourist-friendly and leave the car in Bishkek - but waht are the roads like, from Tashkent to Bishkek via Namangan, in January? Will we get snowed in?)
