Kazakhstan in Central Asia shares a border with Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Mongolia, Russia and Turkmenistan.

Kazakhstan is in Central Asia and used to be part of the former Soviet Union. It is quite a rich country due to its oil and gas reserves and is the world’s ninth largest country overall but also holds the title of the largest landlocked country in the world. Kazakhstan has visa registration requirements on entry for some, so please ensure you comply. We can recommend a few things to do in Kazakhstan such as visiting one of the many sauna complexes or visiting the cosmodrome site where Uri Gagarin launched into the history books with the first manned orbital space flight.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Kazakhstan

Due to the fact that a part of Kazakhstan is situated higher than 2500m, altitude sickness could be a problem. You can obtain altitude sickness medication and practice appropriate acclimatisation and gradual ascents to counter altitude sickness. Don’t forget, its not just your climbing altitude but your sleeping altitude as well that must be considered. Our travel nurse will be able to discuss these with you and offer you the relevant advice.

The weather in Kazakhstan is nice and warm in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. Please make sure to check the weather for the period you are travelling, as you will need to pack adequately and take reasonable precautions for the climate here.

Tap water in Kazakhstan is not considered safe for foreigners to drink so drink bottled water and always check the water that food has been washed in. As an extra precaution, take some water purifying tablets with you or some kind of water purification system.

If you’re a vegetarian you will find loads of vegetables for sale in Kazakhstan – but very few purely vegetarian meals. It is meat, rice, potatoes and pasta all the way here. You will be able to find nice spicy Korean influenced dishes here – although not a lot of pork.

Lots of different infections can be spread through insect bites and animal bites. Please take reasonable precautions when travelling.

Make sure you have health insurance in place that will cover the full range of activities you plan to undertake while in Kazakhstan and make sure it covers medical evacuation by air ambulance.

When travelling here, make sure you keep your passport on you at all times. Use safe travelling practices like not venturing out alone in the cities at night and keeping your valuables out of sight so that you don’t become a target for petty theft. Also, please be aware that Kazakhstan operates a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drugs.
