News on Turkmenistan is in the other corona thread. They take it much more seriously.

Hi again everyone. This came through the US embassy this morning. Seems the government has loosened up on some of the countries previously mentioned: https://kz.usembassy.gov/health-alert-u ... y-19-2020/

So, not horrible--at least for now.

I'm an Italian passport holder.
I'm planning to enter Kazakhstan next week, from the land border between Bishkek and Almaty.
I haven't been in Italy since last November, and I've spent last month between Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
Do you think they can make me problems due to my passport?
Obviously I can prove my movements through my passport stamps.

It has been suggested that flying into Bishkek / Tashkent and crossing the border should work to avoid the thing.



Has anyone successfully entered Kazakhstan from bishkek and avoided all of this hassle?

Crossed the border between Bishkek and Almaty (Ak-Tylek) two days ago. Holder of Italian passport, no problem at all. They did not even check temperature. Crossed the border in 5 minutes.

Just crossed today the border from Russia to the charming town of Petropavl. I’m a French National, no problem at the border, the custom officers had masks and gloves (unlike the Russian ones), but no one took my temperature.
