I was at that border the 27.07 (2016). We talked with the customs officer in order to see the regulation, and it did look legit. He sat at his desk, spent time reading the car registration's card, and wrote down engine specs (volume, power, no turbo, gasoline - an old Forester, which is btw. common in KZ, many in Bishkek) and computed en eco tax of 1000 som. Receipt attached to customs form copy for the car:steven wrote:I dug a bit deeper into the eco tax. Turns out it does exist. It was 1000 som when introduced in 2015, but now seems to be 740 som according to 2 reports I read.
There's no import tax : KG is in the Customs Eurasian Union. I drove in through Russia and KZ: the customs declaration, for temporary import of the car was filled when I entered Russia. Exiting at KG border, customs-wise, is like exiting at RU border.
On the Tajik post at Kyzyk-Art, there were a sanitary fee (a guy sprays desinfecting product on the wheels !) and an import tax. All written down on two official forms with lot of stamps, that where collected exiting the country (maybe I have pictures in some SD card...). It did look legit also but who knows... I hadn't somani on me but USD and so I paid 20 USD for the sanitary, and 35 USD for the car import.
