Kazakhstan visa informations

Kazakhstan visa informations

Visas on arrival with a validity of up to one month are available for nationals arriving from a country without a Kazakh diplomatic mission. The fee is approximately US$80, and travellers must hold an invitation letter and obtain an approval from the Kazakh Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Additionally, travellers must enter Kazakhstan through Aktau, Almaty, Nur-Sultan, Atyrau or Oral Ak Zhol airports.

Anyone not falling into the above categories must obtain a visa in advance.

For more information you should contact a Kazakhstan diplomatic mission in your area or Kazakhstan MFA’s website Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan. Note that as of June 2012 the Consulate General of Kazakhstan in New York says it only accepts money orders, but they actually accept cashier’s checks as well.

Note: Although the Kazakh government has set certain policies regarding which countries do not require LOI’s, this does not always reach the embassies. Be prepared for the worst and coming up against an official who might flat out refuse to give you a visa without a LOI. This is an issue at the Kazakhstan Embassy in Moscow (Australian Passports).
