The conditions for registration of foreign citizens arriving in Kazakhstan have changed


At the beginning of this year, some changes were made to the migration legislation of Kazakhstan, including changes in registration, notification, and terms of stay of foreign citizens.

From January 10, 2020, the obligation to notify the arriving foreigner has passed to the receiving party, whether it be the employer or the owner of the home. There are two ways to notify the migration service:

Clearly, by filling out a notice of the established form;
Through the visa and migration portal, if you have an EDS.
The notification is submitted within three working days from the date of arrival of the foreign citizen. For violation of the requirements of migration legislation, administrative liability is provided, in accordance with Art. 518 Code of Administrative Offenses:

“Failure of the host person to take measures for the timely registration of foreigners and stateless persons or execution of documents for the right of their stay in the Republic of Kazakhstan, or their departure from the Republic of Kazakhstan after a certain period of stay, or untimely informing the internal affairs bodies about the immigrants staying with them – entails a warning on individuals, a fine on officials, small businesses or non-profit organizations in the amount of ten, on medium-sized businesses – in the amount of fifteen, on large businesses – in the amount of twenty monthly calculation indices.

The notification indicates the date of arrival of the foreign citizen and the period for which he entered.

Also, a notification is submitted when an immigrant changes his temporary place of residence in the Republic of Kazakhstan, by the receiving party within three working days.

Responsibility for the accuracy of all data provided is again the receiving party.
