New Five-Year Visas to be Issued to American Citizens Starting Aug. 1

On August 1, Ambassador Kairat Umarov gave Kazakhstan’s first five-year visa to Congressman Eni Faleomavaega, who plans to visit Kazakhstan in August.

Anyone applying for diplomatic, official, private, tourist, business and student visas can now get visas with a maximum validity of five-years on a bilateral basis between Kazakhstan and the U.S. The fee for the long term, multiple entry visa is $160. The new visa will benefit frequent travelers to Kazakhstan.

The five-year visa is one of the main outcomes of the recent visit of Foreign Minister of Kazakhstan Erlan Idrisov to the U.S. The Kazakh Embassy in Washington, D.C., and the Consulate General in New York will issue the new visas to U.S. citizens. All other Kazakh missions around the world can also issue 5-year visas to American citizens visiting Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan is the first CIS country to introduce a more liberal visa regime for American citizens, which is yet another sign of the growing relationship between Kazakhstan and U.S.
