In Kyrgyzstan some regions require additional documentation to visit or pass through. These are mainly the regions next to the border with China in Issyk-Kul and Naryn area such as Karkyra, Inylchek, the areas around Pobeda Peak and Khan Tengri, Kel-Suu, At-Bashi, Ak-Sai, Peak Lenin, and Torugart pass.

You can get a border permit from the local travel agencies within a couple of days. Be informed that attempting to travel to these regions without no permit can be dangerous, and may result in trouble with the Kyrgyz government and at least you will not be allowed to enter the desired area. 

Registration Rule

There have been times when a registration in a police office has been required from foreigners staying more than a certain time in Kyrgyzstan but to our knowledge these rules do not apply at the moment.
