Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Hi altohr,

2 stamps: you are registered. If you feel insecure, you can still register with OVIR. I usually did that, but last time they refused me. "You are already registered, go away!" Ok then.

It looks like this guy was able to cross from Kazakhstan to Russia in 2014. Does anyone have any current info on this crossing?

Shemonaika

"International road border crossing between Ust-Kamenogorsk and Rubtsovsk. Roads are fine, and you avoid the busier Semey (Semipalatinsk) border crossing." From the caravanistan border map

Has someone crossed recently? still open for foreigners?
