Kazakhstan opens unilateral visa-free regime for citizens of India, Iran and China*. At the same time, special 72-hour visa-free transit regime for India and China is terminated.
According to the new regulation, citizens of India, Iran and China will be able to enter and stay in Kazakhstan without visa for up to 14 calendar days from the moment of border crossing. Simplified entry regime will make it easier for foreigners to plan trips to Kazakhstan, travel freely around the country for private, tourist and business purposes.
Period of stay
Total period of stay in Kazakhstan under visa-free regime should not exceed 42 calendar days within a 180-day period. For longer stay you will need a visa.
It should be noted that visa-free regime does not give the right for work and permanent residence in Kazakhstan. In order to carry out labor or business activities in the country, it is necessary to obtain the relevant permits and visas in advance.
Violation of conditions for entry, exit and stay under visa-free regime may result in fines and sanctions, including deportation from the country and a 5-year ban on entry to Kazakhstan.
