Capital city of southern Kazakhstan, Shymkent is the third largest city and an important hub of trade and commerce. If you are moving here for personal or professional reasons, it might be a good idea to import your vehicle from USA for the ease of commuting in the rugged landscape.

As Kazakhstan has only one port, your vehicle will be offloaded at the Aktau city and then the shipping company will arrange for land transportation to Shymkent. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we take care of all logistics and offer support at every step. Irrespective of the city in Kazakhstan, we cater to all requirements. However, before the vehicle can be shipped to Shymkent, you are required to inform the U.S. Customs and Border Protection about your intent to ship. All of the below mentioned documents have to be submitted at least 72 hours to the U.S customs so that they can clear the vehicle in time. Here is a list of the essential documents:

  • Lien free, car title deed.
  • Registration deed.
  • Passport and International driving license.
  • Purchase invoice/Bill of Sale.
  • Proof of car ownership.
  • Work permit/residence visa.

As per the laws framed under the Kazakhstan Customs, there are regulations that are applicable when you import a vehicle. It is important to adhere to the limitations and ensure that the vehicle meets the emission and safety standards.  It is essential to discuss the details of the freight shipping requirements with your chosen shipping service. Apart from the standard services, A1 Auto Transport service offers ‘door-to-port’ services apart from ‘port-to-port’ services. However, these come at extra charges which will be added to the shipping bill.

Methods to ship.

When you ship your vehicle to Shymkent, you have a choice between shipping by container shipping or RORO. Though RORO is cheaper, container shipping offers better protection. When you ship by RORO, the vehicle is parked on an open deck but in container shipping, the vehicle is within a container. You might want to talk with the A1 Auto Transport service to select the best method for your vehicle.

It is essential that you or your representative is present when the vehicle arrives. The port does not hold the vehicles so it is important to complete the procedures and pay the duties in time. If the vehicle does not meet the emission standards, put forth by the Ministry of Transport, modifications might be needed which you will need to get done at your own cost.

The rules as defined say that after a few weeks of importing the vehicle, you will need to get a local license plate. The US-issued driving license is valid for only 6 months and then you have to get the local Kazakhstan license. It is important that you know about the rules of driving in Kazakhstan so that there are no issues with the law enforcement agencies when you are behind the wheel. If you need to know more about the current laws and regulations, it is best to contact the U.S Embassy in Kazakhstan.
