Citizens of 55 countries will drive to Kazakhstan without visa for a period of 30 days and automatically receive registration in case of entrance from next year, the minister of investments and development Zhenis Kasymbek said during the meeting of the government of Kazakhstan, BNews.kz reported.
"It would be desirable to note that we rather seriously liberalized a visa regime. Since 2017 citizens of 55 countries will drive to Kazakhstan without visa for a period of 30 days and automatically receive registration in case of entrance," he said.
At the same time, according to the minister, urgent for investors is a question on simplification of the procedure of registration of working visas. In this regard, the agreement about the FM is reached upon further simplification through system of electronic visas and through "outsourcing" of the procedure of issue of visas (a collecting documents and transfer to consular establishments the FM) in a competitive environment by experience of the European countries.
As Zh. Kasymbek noted, at the same time for receipt of a working visa still there are rather long terms of coordination.
"In practice it takes up to 2 weeks, under the law up to 41 days. In this regard, it would be desirable to ask colleagues to consider the possibility of reducing legislative terms up to 14 days as it usually happens in practice," he added.
