 Visa to Kazakhstan

Visa support

Every foreign visitor is required to have a valid passport and a visa to enter Kazakhstan. The Embassy of Kazakhstan in the visitor's home country issues visas. In countries, where Kazakhstan does not have an Embassy, Consulate or Diplomatic Representative, visa may be obtained on arrival at the airport provided permission has been approved in advance. Consular posts of the MFA has at Astana, Almaty, Atyrau, Uralsk and Ust-Kamenogorsk airports. Visas are only valid for the cities indicated on the visa.
To obtain a visa, a Letter of Invitation is required from a sponsor in Kazakhstan and certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Astana (also known as Visa Support). Normally the sponsor is a tour operating agency or a hotel. Once the permission is granted it is then sent to the Kazakhstan Consulate overseas where the visa is issued. The complete procedure can take about 7 days
