If you send a child by train
The procedure for transportation of minor children in passenger trains by the Kazakhstani railway through the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan is determined by the Rules for transportation of passengers, baggage, cargo and mail by railway transport approved by the Order of the Minister for Investment and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan as of April 30, 2015 No. 545 (hereinafter: Rules).
Pursuant to Clauses 267, 268 of the Rules, a passenger who is a parent, adoptive parent, guardian, trustee, foster carer or other substitute person who, in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan on marriage and family, takes care and protects the rights and interests of a child, upon provision of relevant documents, may:
- expect free-of-charge transportation of one child under the age of 7 (seven) years, if he/she does not occupy a separate seat. If a child under 7 years old occupies a separate seat, than a reduced-price travel document (ticket) should be bought. If more than one child under 7 (seven) years old travel with an adult, than reduced-price travel documents (tickets) should be bought for all of them, except for one child;
- buy reduced-price travel documents (tickets) for transportation of children aged between 7 (seven) to 15 (fifteen).
The passenger fare on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan for children aged 7 (seven) to 15 (fifteen) is charged in the amount of 50% (fifty) from the fare set for an adult passenger.
For children aged 15 (fifteen) and older, travel documents (tickets) are bought as for adults. A child age is determined on the day of a trip.
A document confirming the age of a child is provided to a ticket office and when boarding the train.
A passenger who is not a legal representative of a minor child presents a notarized document on the right to accompany a minor child during a trip issued on behalf of a child's legal representative (power of attorney), when boarding the train.
