Do I have to apply for my work visa for Kazakhstan through the embassy in Egypt or can I get it on arrival in the country? What are the documents that I have to get from the employer?

Hi Amounir,

You'll have to get your work visa application ready while you are still in your home country. Luckily the process seems to be pretty simple.

First, you need to get all of your documents together. The documents needed will vary depending on your job. It would be best to contact your employer and embassy to find out precisely which documents you'll need. You then need to get these documents certified. You also need to get a medical certificate from a doctor to show that you are in good health.

You will send these documents to your employer in Kazakhstan. Your employer then has to apply for a work permit and send you an invitation to the country. You'll have to take this invitation to your local embassy. There you will apply for a multiple entry visa.

Once you receive your visa, you can travel to the country. The final step is to register at the ministry in Kazakhstan once you've arrived in the country.

Do you already have an employer? What kind of job are you hoping to do there? You can have a look at our Work Permits for Kazakhstan page for more information.

Good luck with your application!
