What is the processing time for a Kazakhstan visa?
Posted by , Last modified by on 22 November 2012 04:29 PM

The processing time for a Kazakhstan visa is the time required to prepare any visa support documents (invitations) and the time required by the consulate to process your visa application once all the application paperwork has been received. Processing time, unless stated as calendar days, is calculated in business days and excludes weekends, UK public holidays, Kazakh public holidays and does not include the day of order. Please note, the Kazakh consulate is also shut on Wednesdays and it is not possible to lodge or collect applications on this day.

The processing time and prices above assume that, where they are required, you do not have your own visa support documents (invitation) and you wish us to provide them within the service (where possible). The processing time includes an estimate for the number of working days it will take to raise any required documents and, with Telex invitations, for them to be available at the consulate; however the Kazakh authorities may extend the period for processing visa support documents up to 15 working days at their discretion.

Remember, processing of any visa support documents required will not start until you have paid and sent us a scan or clear fax of your passport page. Once the visa support documents are ready, you should send us your passport so that we may lodge your visa application with the consulate.

The Kazakh consulate limits the quota of applications to 5 a day. During busy times, it may therefore be necessary to delay lodgement of your application at the consulate. Please bear this in mind when ordering your visa.
