Extending 30-day stay: where? When?

Post by Patch051 »

Hello there,
I'm enjoying Kazakhstan so much that I'm moving slowly and will need to stay beyond the 30 day period I'm allowed as EU citizen.

Where can I ask for an extension, and how long before the final day?
I will probably be in Almaty around that time, who would know exactly where I should apply?e

One option is to go to Kyrgyzstan (e.g. Bishkek) and come back. Migration office in Almaty is on Dosmukhamedov St 109. There might be other options there. Not sure if there are English speakers among the staff.

Extending 30-day stay: where? When?

Post by Lagerfeld »

I had the same question after 30 days in KZ.
Once I took a bus from Almaty to Taschkent / UZ for a stay of 1 week. Another time I took a plane from Almaty to China for one week, and every time when I came back they gave me again 30 days permit.
But I'm also looking for an legal opportunity to stay long time in Almaty / KZ.

Just a quick update to clarify : if you wish to extend your visa-free beyond 30 without leaving the country, you need a visa.
