Invitation to Kazachstan, where to get one
Hello Riders!

I'm planning to visit Kazachstan next summer. As you probably know, I need an invitation from someone in Kazachstan to get entry visa. Do you have any expierience with this? Or maybe there is someone from Kazachstan on this forum and could help me out. As for today, there are 3 motorcycles and 5 people for this trip. I don't know if there can be something like "mass invitation" or should each one of us have this pice of paper.

Thanks for any help on this.

You can ask friends in Poland ;)
You need LOI (Letter of Invitation) to get a visa in embassy. It is easy to get it. You can organize it in Warsaw (about 50 USD per person) or by internet in Kazakhstan (about 30-35). Use google and put LOI and Kazakhstan and you will get answers.
Have a luck and go East!

**** hotel with good cancelation policy
What I've done in the past is to book a few nights in a four star hotel with a good cancelation policy. Get the invitation from the hotel, get the visum, cancel the reservation and off you go...

Contact Stantours (www.stantours.com), they are based in Almaty and are very helpful with motorcycle travel in the 'Stans. They will most certainly get you what you need.

I will also recommend David from Stantours, very helpful, developed a network of motorbike contacts and fair value as far as LOI go, plus he is a nice bloke. We had extenive dealings with him in 2003.

Thanks for your reply.

P.S. Sambor, I must say, that it is your trip to Kirgistan that inspired me to go to Kazachstan :)

Cross your fingers guys :)
