VISA

WHO NEEDS A VISA TO KAZAKHSTAN?

Visitors to Kazakhstan must obtain a visa from one of the Kazakh diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. 

The process of obtaining a tourist visa to Kazakhstan for foreign citizens of all other countries consists of two stages: 

  • Obtaining visa support (permission of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan);
  • Obtaining a visa at the Embassy or Consulate of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Visa support is an official invitation to visit a foreign country. It is drawn up by a licensed travel agency and submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan for consideration. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan considers the document, and then sends permission to the Embassy or Consulate of the Republic of Kazakhstan, where the tourist plans to obtain a visa. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan has the full right to refuse to issue a permit without providing the reasons for the refusal. 

Visa support to Kazakhstan is not provided by us as a separate service. Our company is ready to issue a visa invitation for you only on condition of booking travel services with us.
