Kazakhstan's landscape is beautiful, and it has few towns and cities. This makes it a great place for outdoor exploration. However, Pakistan citizens must make sure to apply for the correct Kazakhstan Visa and make sure they are up-to-date about other required documents, such as the Health Entry Pass.
Continue reading about the Kazakhstan visa application for Pakistani nationals, the Health Pass, and other COVID-19 restrictions in Kazakhstan.
Do Pakistani citizens need a Kazakhstan Tourist Visa?
Yes, Pakistan nationals are required to have valid visa to visit Kazakhstan. Over 100 countries, including the UAE, can obtain the Kazakhstan Visa for tourism, business, or medical treatment.
You have your Kazakhstan Tourist Visa processed by contacting your nearest Kazakhstan embassy or consulate. This also applies to other Kazakhstan Visa types. Unfortunately, online visa applications for the Kazakhstan eVisa are currently not yet available for applicants from Pakistan.
COVID-19 restrictions requirements for Kazakhstan
According to the Ministry of foreign affairs, you do not need to show a proof of vaccination to enter the country. It is also no longer required to do a COVID-19 test before departure and quarantine is not necessary.
The only requirement visitors from Pakistan have to meet is obtaining the Kazakhstan Health Entry Pass before arrival in the country. Find all information about this pass below.
Entry procedures may, however, change at short notice. Before traveling to Kazakhstan, we recommend that you check the Health Ministry's website for the most current information.
Everything you need to know about the Kazakhstan Health Entry Pass
The Health Entry Pass is a visa support document that every traveler must complete within 72 hours before departure. This form allows the government of Kazakhstan to keep track of visitors into the country, to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and contact you if there are any emergencies. When you arrive in the country, border officials will ask you to show your completed form with a QR code.
You may only enter the Republic of Kazakhstan once as this pass is a single-entry document. Each time you return to Kazakhstan, you must fill out a new application form, which may be important to know for business people regularly returning to the country.
Please note that the entry pass does not replace a Kazakhstan Tourist Visa. You will still have to apply for a proper visa through the embassy as a Pakistan national.
