Visa processes to Kazakhstan facilitated for foreigners

2 timeviewed

Increasing the investment and tourist attractiveness of Kazakhstan is one of the strategic tasks set by the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev before the state bodies. In this regard, the Ministry of internal affairs continues to work to simplify procedures and accelerate the timing of public services in the field of migration. 

In the current quarter, the Ministry of internal affairs translated the service "Invitation of a foreigner" into an electronic format. Issuing an invitation to enter is one of the most popular public services provided by the Ministry of internal affairs. This process was troubled and time-consuming: the collection of documents, personal appearance at the Embassy of Kazakhstan and waiting for a response, which could be delayed for 30 days or more. Now this service can be obtained in just 5 days on the visa and migration portal www.vmp.gov.kz.

In the personal account on the visa and migration portal, the person issuing the invitation of a foreigner must fill out the application and enter the data of the foreigner and pay the state fee (0.5 MCI for each invitee) through the payment gateway of the electronic government.

After 5 working days, applicant will receive a 10-digit registration number of the invitation, which must be reported to the foreign citizen. And a foreign citizen fills out an application on the visa and migration portal. After 15 minutes, the foreigner will receive an electronic visa, which he must print out and present to the Border guards when passing passport control at the border of Kazakhstan.

Currently, the service of electronic invitation to foreigners is available for single-entry electronic visas of categories "B1", "B2" and "B3" for entryb to Kazakhstan for business purposes and category "B10" - for private purposes.

It should be noted that currently, with the help of an electronic visa, it is possible to pass passport control at the international airports of Nur-Sultan and Almaty. It is planned to extend this procedure to other checkpoints across the state border of the Republic of Kazakhstan during 2020.
