There are a number of reasons for cancelling a valid temporary residence permit (hereinafter - TRP), among which the most common are the following:
▪️ Termination of the employment relationship with the employer;
▪️ Change of employer in Kazakhstan;
▪️ Change of purpose of stay in Kazakhstan.
Why is it required to cancel the TRP?
For instance, if the employment relationship is terminated, but the TRP is not canceled, the employer continues to be responsible for the immigrant's stay in Kazakhstan. It is important for the employer to cancel the TRP of the former employee so that he leaves Kazakhstan in a timely manner.
There are also cases when persons who initially arrived for the purpose of accompanying, find work in Kazakhstan. Then the purpose of their stay changes from "family member of labor immigrants" to "work". In this case, it is important to change the receiving party in time, canceling the previous one and issuing a new TRP.
What documents are required for cancellation?
The main documents for TRP cancellation are:
▪️ A valid TRP;
▪️ Rationale (e.g. order on termination of employment relationship).
Will my TRP be automatically cancelled if I cross the state border of Kazakhstan?
No, if a foreigner repeatedly crosses the state border of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the TRP remains valid until its expiry date. However, the receiving party must send a notification of arrival within three business days each time an immigrant enters the country.
Which body is authorized to cancel a TRP?
A TRP is cancelled by the same department of the Migration Service that issued it.
