Tourist, Student, Work and Business Visa
As of January 2023 Indian passport holders need a visa to enter Kazakhstan as tourists for 30 days. The general rules apply to the Indians as it does for other nationals. Keep in mind the fact that to issue a visa, one needs to get an approval from the Kazakhstan migration department through a licensed tour operator. That approval paper is called a letter of invitation or LOI. To get LOI takes around 6 working days (not calendar days). So one needs to act accordingly.
To get the LOI, one needs to send to the licensed tour operator a scan copy of a passport, a short application form and a small fee. 6 working days later LOI will be out with an official registration number. That LOI number is necessary to issue an e-visa. E-visa takes around 20 minutes (!) to be prepared. Starting from mid June 2022, e-visas are issued thru gov web portal. One does NOT have to collect many papers and apply them at the Kazakh Embassy in Delhi. Hooray!
Pls note that if you or your group needs an LOI only, then you need to get from us a transfer service on top of the LOI number, plus deliver your confirmed hotel booking and itinerary - booked by you or your travel agent. It is required for us because we as an inviting party are obliged to notify the government migration office about your arrival and departure. If you are getting a full tour package from us, then all is done automatically.
At the beginning of 2023 pandemic seems to be fully over at last. International travel and tourism to Kazakhstan from India is fully open. The Indians can enter and leave Kazakhstan as they did before the pandemic. No need to have any vax passport and PCR tests. The nightmare seems to have finished. As for student and business visas, one needs to approach a university or a company respectively to get valid information. Our company is a tour operator and we can help with a tourist visa.
