Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: Roads in Kazakhstan are in poor repair, especially in rural areas. Signage and lighting on roadways is poor.

  • Potholes are common, and are often dangerously deep.
  • Drivers often disregard traffic signals, ignore lane markings, drive after excessive alcohol consumption (despite official ?zero tolerance?), drive into oncoming lanes of traffic, and move at excessive speed ? including during adverse weather. Pedestrians frequently dart out in front of cars.
  • Visitors should drive defensively at all times as many local drivers do not follow traffic laws. Road rage can be a problem, and we recommend a non-confrontational response to such behavior. 
  • Accidents involving severe injury and/or death are common. 
  • Traffic police have reportedly stopped cars to extort bribes on main city streets and at periodic checkpoints on major highways.
  • The mountainous road between Almaty and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, should be avoided at night or during poor weather.
  • Roads outside urban areas are often closed in winter months due to high winds and drifting snow.

Public Transportation:

  • Buses can be very crowded and unsafe.
  • Due to the danger of theft or assault, be selective regarding which taxi you use, and always avoid entering a cab that already contains persons other than the driver. The U.S. Mission highly discourages hailing unlicensed private vehicles on the street and negotiating a fee with the driver on the spot. Ridesharing applications such as Uber are available.

Please refer to our Road Safety page for more information. Also, we suggest that you visit the website of Kazakhstan?s national tourist office. 

Aviation Safety Oversight: As there is no direct commercial air service to the United States by carriers registered in Kazakhstan, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not assessed the government of Kazakhstan?s Civil Aviation Authority for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

The U.S. Embassy has been alerted to serious safety gaps with certain airlines in Kazakhstan.  As a result, without prior approval, U.S. government personnel are not permitted to travel on any Kazakhstani airline operating regularly scheduled flights except for Air Astana and FlyArystan. This policy only applies to the official travel of U.S. government personnel and will be reevaluated as reforms are undertaken and future technical reviews, such as aviation safety audits, determine that Kazakhstan?s civil aviation operations more substantially comply with acceptable international safety standards.
