From August 15, 2022 Kazakhstani citizens will have a capability to register marriage 15 calendar days after application submission via eGov.kz portal and eGov Mobile app.
Previously, pursuant to the provisions of the applicable legislation, application should have been submitted one month prior to the state registration of marriage.
It should be noted that the changes were introduced to optimize the terms of marriage registration and to exclude the barriers to start families under the initiative of the Ministry of Justice and the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On introduction of alterations and amendments to certain legal acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan related to encouragement of innovations, development of digitalization, information security and education".
Citizens who marry for the first time and do not have children can only provide a national ID. Also, a state fee in the amount of 1 MCI should be paid.
Citizens can submit an application for marriage registration via eGov.kz portal and eGov Mobile app, and also via Civil Registry Offices.
