Do I Need a Visa to Visit Kazakhstan?

As of 01 January 2017, Kazakhstan implemented a VISA-FREE system for Canadian passport holders. Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport do not need a visa to visit Kazakhstan for stays up to 30 days. This applies only to Canadian citizens with full citizen Canadian passports.

NOTE: Canadians must carry a letter explaining the purpose of travel in details, and proving Kazakh business or hotel contact information.

All other nationals will need an official invitation and a regular visa .

Visas for children under 16 years of age are free.
