To date, cases of importation of foreign vehicles into the country in violation of the law have become more frequent. In particular, the facts of the operation of cars that are stolen or pledged, equipped with false numbers are revealed.

In addition, more than 600 cars at the time of importation were wanted by law enforcement agencies of the EAEU member countries.

In this regard, in order to eliminate the risks of the emergence of "problem" vehicles in Kazakhstan and improve administration in general, rules for the import of vehicles (including temporary ones) are being developed, which will provide mechanisms for strengthening control in terms of such cars, up to limiting their import into the country.
