In accordance with paragraph 1 of Article 46 of the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated April 6, 2016 "On Legal Acts", and current COVID 19 worldwide situation the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan decided to suspend visa free regime until November 1, 2020 until further notice.

Right now travel to Kazakhstan requires an entry visa.

 

↓↓↓Please disregard the information below until 1st of November 2020 or further official notice↓↓↓.

In accordance with the recent changing of Kazakhstan Visa legislation and decision of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, citizens of all member countries of the Organization of the Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), can travel to Kazakhstan without a visa and can stay there up to 30 days each entry. This rule is starting from January 1, 2017 and effective until 31st Dec 2017. United State of America is a member of the OECD since 12th April 1961. 

Thus, American citizens do not need any visas if they want to visit Kazakhstan and stay there less than 30 calendar days. (There are some additional requirements for the former Kazakhstan citizens).

If American citizen wants to stay in Kazakhstan more than 30 days the visa is mandatory. But there is very convenient option, as recently Kazakhstan and the United States have agreed to issue ten-year reciprocal and multiple visas to ease travel between the two countries effective from December 29, 2016.

These ten-years multiple visas rules apply only to the American citizens, not to the US Green Card holders (citizen of the country that needs visa to enter Kazakhstan) or Stateless People with US Travel documents.

These categories of travelers ( US Green Card holders (citizen of the country that needs visa to enter Kazakhstan) or Stateless People with US Travel documents) may need Letter of Invitation ( or Visa Support) and Visa.

The fine is around $1000 US per person, and also traveler could lose the privilege of enter the country for next 5 years.
