Carnet Requirements???

Hi,

I came to realise that there is no motoring association of any kind in countries like Kazakhstan, krygystan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Does that mean that you do not need a carnet to geting your bike into these countries? What do they check for when you cross the borders? I intend to rent a bike in Kazakhstan, do a ride looping into the neighbouring stans and then back to Kazakhstan. Is it feasible? Will I have problem with the bike at the borders?

Cheers.

I don't see how it's possible for you to get a carnet for a rented bike. You won't be able to get a carnet if there are no motoring organisations anyway.

My point is that since there are no motoring associations, does it mean that no carnet is required??

It is just like if you are on a european registered plate bike, you do not need a carnet to cross the borders into the neighbouring countries. Also, No carnet is required if you are riding into malaysia, thailand, cambodia and laos if you are on a Singapore registered bike beacuse they are all part of the ASEAN countries.

So, since there are no motoring association in central asia, and that I will be riding on a rental bike (Which is a local bike, which is a central asia registered bike), my guess is that I do not need a carnet to just ride into the neighbouring countries from Kazakhstan to krygystan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan then back to Kazakhstan.

Am I right to say that? I am not sure. Can someone please advise?
