You can travel to Kazakhstan by train from Russia; the road will take slightly more than 24 hrs. Also, you can get by car from neighboring countries: to Almaty and Chimkent you can drive from Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China, and to other cities in the north of the country including Astana, you can reach from different regions of Russia. Besides, in the western part of the country, on the shores of the Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan has two port-cities Aktau and Atyrau, where you can get via naval ways from Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.

Each foreigner arriving in Kazakhstan should register within five days (Saturday and Sunday are counted). However, citizens of more than 60 countries are free of registration within the first 5 days; they receive immigration card with (!) double stamps upon arrival. Also, citizens of Russia and Belarus can stay up to 30 days in Kazakhstan without a registration. All other nationalities can complete the registration within 5 days in the migration police office themselves or hand it to a travel agency. Here you will find more details of registration of stay in Kazakhstan.

You can also stay in private apartments.
