Moving to KAZAKHSTAN

Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world and the largest landlocked country in the world, with a landmass that nearly eclipses Western Europe. Although rarely visited by outsiders, its rich cultural history speaks to its diverse demographics and, bordered by Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan's magnificent natural landscape has become home to many people from neighboring nations; a friendly and hospitable, but reserved society.

Customs & Traditions

Kazakh people are known for their hospitality, respect for elders, as well as a peaceful and tolerant nature. Generosity and cordial behavior are common in both social and business fields. Standards of dress and behavior are conservative and travelers should take care not to offend. Greetings between opposite genders should remain verbal and same sex friends may shake hands, or if very close, greet one another with a hug.

Possession and use of drugs is illegal and if found guilty, could bring about a lengthy prison sentence. Same sex couples are discouraged from openly showing their affection, because, while same-sex relations are legal, cultural norms prohibit and even actively discriminate against homosexuality.


LEARN THE LANGUAGE - Take the initiative and learn the local language. Doing so will help you gain respect among the locals. 



Expect Trouble if caught:

  • Drug Possession
  • Homosexuality Discouraged, especially in public 
  • Littering
  • Not flushing public toilets
  • Drugs are definitely a very bad idea

 

Living in Kazakhstan

Shipping

Because most rental properties in Singapore are unfurnished, you may decide to ship some goods from home. Whether you send a shipment by air, sea or land, it’s worth getting adequate insurance.

American eBox takes much of the hassle out of the shipping process and allows you to rest in peace while your items are managed during the long voyage to your new home. 

 

You can import household goods and personal belongings duty free if you’ve owned them for at least six months. You’ll need to provide a copy of your passport, along with your Turkish residence permit and an inventory – and your shipment must arrive no later than six months after you.
Small shipments can be sent by air, but it’s cheaper to ship a large volume of goods by sea. If you’re moving from the UK or somewhere in mainland Europe, transporting goods by road could be the cheapest option.
Membership with American eBox is more than shipping with another carrier, its our mission to serve your needs with respect, authentic care, and complete integrity. We understand that Expatriates embarking on a journey into others countries is daunting and highly complex. We know because, we've been there too.
The American eBox Advantage program is designed specifically for Expats. Your needs are very different than most which is why we offer additional discounts, dedicated account managers, mail forwarding service, and the first year FREE VIP Service Level.




When moving to another country, its very common to overlook many of the little things, for instance power plugs. Its very likely that you will encounter a different design to the plugs, and its very likely that the voltage may differ from that which is used in the USA. A simple and often used solution is an adapter that serves as a conduit between the appliance plug and the wall. In addition, you may consider using a power strip that conditions the electricity. 

Must haves: 

  • Power adapters
  • Back-up power unit
  • Uniterruptible Power System

A back-up power unit and/or a UPS will be a life saver, particularly if power is unstable, as it often is during storms and bad weather.

Consider an APC solution. They are tried and trued.
