In the modern world of mobility and globalization, there is an increasing number of cases when citizens of the Republic of Kazakhstan become parents abroad, and their children acquire the citizenship of another country. However, when returning to Kazakhstan, parents often overlook an important requirement - the need to obtain a C11 visa for foreign minor citizens.
To obtain this visa, it is sufficient for only one of the parents to have Kazakhstan citizenship. Neglecting the process of obtaining a visa for a child can lead to an administrative offense in accordance with Article 517 of the Administrative Code of Kazakhstan (fine up to 15 MCI (Monthly Calculation Index).
Key aspects of the C11 visa:
Multiplicity and validity period. The C11 visa can be issued for both single and multiple entries. A single-entry visa is valid for one year from the date of issuance, while a multiple-entry visa can be valid for up to three years. Stay in Kazakhstan is possible for the entire duration of the visa's validity.
Application letter. To obtain a C11 visa, parents must submit an application to the Migration Service Department at their place of temporary residence. The processing of the application may take up to 5-7 working days.
Required documents. When applying for the C11 visa, parents or legal representatives must provide the necessary documents, including the original passport, the child's birth certificate, a visa application form, and a receipt for the visa state fee.
The C11 visa plays a crucial role in ensuring the legal residence of minor children with foreign citizenship in Kazakhstan. Complying with the conditions and requirements of this visa will ensure the legal stay of children in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
