Home Route Border crossings Border Crossing Kazachstan

We expect to cross the border beginning of April 2024. As soon as we crossed I will add info.

For us, a Dutch German couple is when you stay less the 30 days no extra paperwork necessary.

And then…

Internet Only available in a hotel and then you still need a good vpn. No sim cards for tourists.
DieselPrice is around us$ 0,50/liter and diesel is available in most larger towns. Locals drive LPG gas.
MoneyThe ATM won’t work for foreigners and euro’s are almost not accepted. So money for the border, guide and expenses needs al to be payed with cash US$. There is only one bank and it is in Ashgabat where you can get US$ with your credit card. We used our MasterCard.
All payments are cash in local currency. There are no payment terminals in stores or at gas stations. Official Exchange rates are terrible, so inform yourself before you exchange. (We have an unofficial address in Ashgabat)
