Stay Safe in Almaty

Stay Safe in Almaty

In case of emergency, please call "101" (Fire services), "102" (Police), "103" (Ambulance), "104" (Gas Service), "112" (Rescue service in emergency situations). As with most major cities, avoid traveling alone at night, and avoid arguments with locals. Never try to go to places which you don't trust or don't know about, unless you have a local person with you to help out on the language. There have been recent cases of mugging, mostly late night, even in residential areas. Kazakh driving is pretty wild. Drivers attack their art with an equal mix of aggressiveness and incompetence. As a pedestrian, take great care when crossing the roads. Kazakh people are extremely friendly and welcoming towards foreigners and nothing should happen to you unless you really want it yourself. If you don't care about them, they don't care about you and nothing should be in your way of having a great holiday! Always carry a national passport with a valid entry clearance with you. Police officers may request to show an identity document. The underlying intention many times is to extract some money in case you don't have valid documents. If you don't know Russian, confusion is guaranteed.
