Kazakhstan’s ministry of internal affairs has announced that the country has started the legalization of foreign cars from January 23, QazMonitor reports.
Vehicles eligible for legalization include foreign-registered cars, small and medium-sized buses, small trucks, and right-hand drive cars imported by citizens of Kazakhstan.
To apply for the legalization of their vehicles, applicants must prepare a list of documents that can be submitted online or in person. Once the documents are registered in the database, the result will be sent via text message. If the car is subject to legalization, the next step will be to pay the legal fees.
Then, the vehicle owner must submit a technical passport and documents confirming ownership of the property to the Population Service Center. After the registration is approved, the owner is assigned a registration document issued by the Republic of Kazakhstan and a state license plate.
The legalization process will last until July 1, 2023.
