Entry without visa to Kazakhstan possible again
12/01/2022 14:52

The Kazakh Consulate informs that entry for business trips to Kazakhstan is possible again without a visa (for a maximum of 30 days).

ATTENTION: however, this only applies to direct flights to Kazakhstan. Since Austria does not have direct flights to Kazakhstan, an invitation and a protocol (special authorisation of the interministerial government commission) must be presented upon entry. The special authorisation still needs to be requested by the business partner in Kazakhstan.
 
Multiple entries longer than 30 days must continue to be applied for at the consulate.
