Kazakhstan Consular Legislation

Kazakhstan visa and document legalization regulationsOn this page you can find legal information pertaining to Kazakhstan visas, consular affairs or other matters. 

In general, the titles of regulations and updates on changes can be looked up in the online version of private legal database Paragraph. However, actual regulations can only be obtained either by paying with sms from Kazakhstan cell phone to Paragraph or downloading from actual purchased software under the same name. However, most of documents are in Kazakh or Russian.
A free of charge online source of Kazakhstan laws and regulations is the Ministry of Justice of Kazakhstan legal database. Some documents (major laws) are available in English.  In general, you can find the same information free of charge as in Paragraph but we found that Paragraph often updates the newest legislation a little bit quicker than in the official Ministry of Justice database.
If you want another free legal database,then this link in Pavlodar city has database of over 4000 Russian only regulations but in general it has less content than the above Paragraph and Ministry of Justice databases.
