KAZAKHSTAN SIM CARD FOR TOURIST COMPARED AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN KAZAKHSTAN BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Kazakhstan prepaid sim card and data connection in Kazakhstan works great in the cities but it will be hard in off the beaten path. Since 1 st of January 2019 you have to register with your passport to get a sim card.

It means if you are like us that you have to have a couple of sim cards in Kazakhstan it will be hard with only 1 passport. If you register with your passport and you want to have another one you need to unregister from the first one.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is buying a prepaid sim card in Kazakhstan. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to get your Kazakhstan tourist sim card in an official shop. If you do in the airport you will have worse packages.

You can get in the kiosks or phone shops if you prefer affordable prices. And you aren’t worried of not having internet for a few hours until get to your destination in Kazakhstan. Also you can book online in advance with Klook it can be a great option if you are traveling for a few countries around the area or a pocket wifi.

Wi-Fi connection in the big cities can be easily found in Kazakhstan but most of the time you need a Kazak phone number to sign in. You can get great internet connection in bars and restaurants.

The opposite exists in rural areas in Kazakhstan as Wi-Fi and data connection are hard to find. Having a VPN will be a great idea since a few websites are blocked by the government.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.

Buying a Kazakhstan sim card in Astana airport is simple and easy. You can do in Kazakhstan International Airport in a phone shop or phone kiosks. Make sure you are bringing your passport when buying in the airport, pick up service, or in a shop since it’s always required.

I would say summer is the best time to visit Kazakhstan. The weather is warm and it’s perfect for outdoor activities. Summer lasts from the end of May until mid-September. If you want to experience the winter in Kazakhstan, visit here from November until the end of April. But we are warning you of the strong cold air that can be up to -50 °C!

You can also visit during spring (from mid-April to end of May) and autumn which is also a short season in Kazakhstan (from end of September to the beginning of November).
