The project has been developing in stages since 2008, at the first stage central state bodies were connected: ministries and agencies, and in 2012 they completed the implementation work. The Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Kazakhstan jointly with the Ministry of Economy and Budget Planning of the Republic of Kazakhstan (authorized bodies in the field of informatization and licensing, respectively) amends a number of legislative acts that not only equated e-license to paper, but obliged all state bodies to issue licenses and permits only in electronic format.

What dividends were accomplished today by “Electronic licensing” portal
Licensing on its own is sufficiently difficult procedure:
- for accomplishment is not always familiar, is the license necessary to him, or the beginning of activity is always regulates by some other administrative procedure;
- it is necessary to submit completely great quantity of documents (7-30 types of documents, among which are the identification/incorporation, and specific documents, confirming the applicant’s correspondence to the requirements for implementing the activity – qualification, material base availability);
- in many cases to get the license is possible in Astana city or districtal center that afford the difficulties for citizen from other cities and districts.
“Electronic licensing” alongside with other components of “electronic government” just today allows to solve many of these problems.
Single point for users – “electronic licensing” portal (at that an applicant as before can address directly to the state agency or «State-owned corporation «Government for citizens» NJSC).
Also, taking into account the optimization of the licensing process, applications for all types of licensing in declarative form - "forms of information" - are launched. That is, this form enables applicants to fill in information manually and reduces the number of attachments of many required documents.
