To Kazakhstan via Chernyaevka

Post by Admin on 25.07.16 8:13

Getting out of Uzbekistan via Chernyayevka border post was easy. I took a taxi for USD1.3 to Yusunobod Bazaar in Tashkent. Then marshrutka to Chernyayevka for USD0.40.

Chernayevka/Gisht-Kuprik/Zhibek-Joly: It is the main road and rail link between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, connecting Shymkent and Tashkent. Generally straightforward crossing nowadays, but there can be considerable waiting time with fisticuffs breaking out occasionally due to the stressful circumstances. If it’s busy, try to stay calm and wait your turn. Many Uzbeks cross the border every day. The border is open 24h with a few breaks daily. If you are self-driving, you cannot take this border. Instead, you have to cross further west at Yalama (below).

From Tashkent: There are no marshrutkas going cross-border. From Tashkent you can take a whole taxi for 10$ from the city center, or a taxi or Damas marshrutka for a miniature sum to the border, leaving from the bus stop at the Yunusobod Univermag supermarket. Marshrutkas to Shymkent are possible during the day, however shared taxis are more likely to be found. 1000 KZT would be a reasonable price for a seat in the car.

From Shymkent: You can pick up a shared taxi to the border here, but make sure it is going to Zhibek Zholy, not Yalama!

B. Konysbayeva / Yalama: The place to cross for self-drivers coming to Tashkent. It’s not as convenient as Chernayevka, but should you be here without your own transport, at a guess the simplest route from Uzbekistan would be to get to Chinaz and jump in a car to Yalama. There are shared taxis waiting on the Kazakh side for locals.

Shardara: According to Kazakhstan Migration Police, this is a multilateral checkpoint. There are no accounts of travelers passing this way, however. Advised to use the main Shymkent-Tashkent highway or Yalama.

Tajen: On the Beyneu – Kungrad road. There is also a daily train from Kungrad to Beyneu, which takes approximately 10 hours.
