The Association will help migrated compatriots adapt to the Spanish realities.

The Peoples' Friendship Association has started operating in Madrid, where it will help migrated compatriots, develop community relations, provide information support to individuals and businessmen, and strengthen the Kazakh diaspora in Spain, Bnews.kz reported with the reference to the association "¡Salem EurAsia!".

According to the Statistics Institute of Spain, Spain now has about 2,700 Kazakhstanis and 300,000 people from all over the CIS.

They, as well as the thousands of students who come to Spain every year to study, according to the organizers of the Association, need a unifying link for communication and information support of compatriots.

According to the founders, Kazakhstanis, when they come to Europe for a month or more, face violation of the deadline for filing documents, problems with visas and permits.

"Students have difficulties with medical insurance, since often issued in the CIS policies are not accepted in medical institutions, they are forced to pay for services out of their own pockets, not knowing at the same time Spanish. In general, English is almost unknown in Spain, and this is a real language barrier. And many simply lack enough communication with compatriots and native speech," the leadership of the Association said.

The Association also intends to find rational sources of financing, which will ensure its high-quality work.
