Re: ALMATY TO BISHKEK
No and no. The Kyrgyz visa is only available at the airport upon arrival. If you travel overland, you must get it in advance. Furthermore, the Kazakh visa is likely to be single entry. So once you leave Kazakhstan the visa will no longer be valid, you will need to get another on in Bishkek. Alternatively, you can try to get a multiple entry Kazakh visa (not easy to get)
In years past, it was possible to go as far as Bishkek or Lake Issyk-kul on a Kazakh visa. But there have been no reports of whether this is still possible. Even if it is, it is unlikely border guards will be aware of this rule.
