Kazakhstan Announces Visa Waiver For Citizens of China, India and Iran

Kazakhstan unilaterally introduced a 14-day visa-free entry for the citizens of China, India and Iran as part of its efforts to promote tourism.

The Kazakhstan Foreign Ministry said that the maximum duration of the visitor’s visa-free stay is 42 days within every 180 days.

“The decision aims at further enhancing the country’s favorable investment climate, to promote direct contacts between businesses, and to better utilize its potential for international tourist visits,” it said in a statement.

Foreign citizens were prohibited from carrying out labor and other paid activities under the visa-free regime.

In the beginning of 2022, Kazakhstan had announced its plan to establish a visa-free regime with 100 countries in order to promote tourism as well as business activities.

There is no comment from China, India and Iran on the development so far.
