Situation. A new client submitted a request for visa support. The client has previously obtained work permits for foreign employees, citizens of Ukraine, by itself and the process took longer than expected.
The client asked to process work visas as quickly as possible since foreign employees were staying in Kazakhstan on visa-free regime and the client presumed that it would take much time for foreign employees to apply for visas abroad. The Company used to send its employees to Kiev in order to receive Kazakhstan visas. It was extremely inconvenient as in that case the Company had to bear expenses for air tickets, transfer and accommodation of a foreign employee and family members. Moreover, foreign employees spent much time for trips and interrupted their work.
Solution. We proposed another option of processing of work visas for foreign employees without departure from Kazakhstan. The client was duly informed about the processing time and that the procedure would take from 7 to 12 business days. We started the process on approval of the client. Our consultant prepared and submitted visa documents to the migration service department in accordance with the existing migration rules and recent changes. 2 weeks later we received and handed over the passports with work visas to the client.
Result. The client found the proposed option really attractive as visas were received in Kazakhstan and the Company did not have to bear employees' travel expenses. And most importantly, during visas procedure employees were legally staying in Kazakhstan without pauses in work.
