How to apply for the Kazakhstan Visa online
You can apply for this visa or a transit visa by contacting your nearest Kazakhstan embassy or consulate, as the Kazakhstan online visa application (also known as the Kazakhstan eVisa) is currently not available for UAE residents.
COVID-19 restrictions requirements for Kazakhstan
According to the ministry of foreign affairs, no vaccinations are required to enter the country. You can arrive without a COVID-19 test and do not have to quarantine.
The only requirement is to fill out the Kazakhstan Health Entry Pass before traveling, about which you can find all information below.
However, please note that entry procedures may change on short notice. Therefore, we recommend that you check up-to-date information on the website of Kazakhstan’s Health Ministry before traveling to the country.
Fill out the Kazakhstan Health Entry Pass online
The Kazakhstan Health Entry Pass is a mandatory form that must be filled out within 72 hours before departure.

Other things to know for your trip to Kazakhstan
Since 2020, foreign visitors to Kazakhstan are no longer required to register at the Internal Affairs office within 72 hours after arrival in the country.
Kazakhstan has made this change in order to make it more attractive for foreign nationals to visit the country. However, the host of the traveler (such as an employer or hotel) must still notify the Internal Affairs authority about any foreign residents visiting or staying with them.
A temporary residence permit is required if a foreign national needs to stay in Kazakhstan for more than 30 days.
