a work permit for foreigners

If you are a foreigner and decide to work on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan, then in this article we will show you what you need to do to obtain a permit.

To cross the state border of the Republic of Kazakhstan, you will need a valid national passport, after which the border service will put a stamp in your passport when crossing the state border.

All further procedures, including obtaining a temporary residence permit, issuing an IIN (if necessary) and obtaining a work permit from an individual, are carried out at the Public Service Center (PSC).

Issuance of a temporary residence permit

Foreigners arriving in Kazakhstan have the right to stay for up to 30 days without obtaining a temporary residence permit.

For a period of more than 30 days (for work, study, treatment, business immigrants, as well as for the purpose of family reunification and missionary work), a temporary residence permit is issued.

For registration of a temporary residence permit, the host person is a citizen of the Republic of Kazakhstan, a foreigner and a stateless person permanently residing in the Republic of Kazakhstan, or a legal entity registered in the Republic of Kazakhstan, applying for an invitation of immigrants to the Republic of Kazakhstan for temporary residence and (or) providing a place for their residence , contact the local police.

Registration of IIN for payment of state fees

To obtain a work permit, it is necessary to find an employer on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan and conclude an employment contract. Citizens of the Republics of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine have the right to work for individuals without receiving benefits. EAEU citizens (Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Armenia) carry out labor activities on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan without obtaining a permit on the basis of an employment contract.

To pay the state fee, citizens of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine must obtain an IIN (individual identification number).

To do this, you need to contact the PSC, while the immigrant needs to have a national passport with him.

Obtaining a work permit

To obtain a work permit, you must first submit to the PSC at the place of stay:

- application for a permit to a labor immigrant;

- receipts for the payment of an advance payment for individual income tax (after scanning, it is returned to the service recipient);

- passport with a mark on crossing the State Border (after scanning it is returned to the service recipient);

- a certificate of a medical examination of a foreigner, confirming the absence of diseases that hinder labor activity in the chosen specialty (medical certificate form 075 / y);

- a certificate of passing fingerprinting and photographing (if there is information about obtaining a labor permit by an immigrant during the previous calendar year, fingerprinting and photographing is not performed);

- medical insurance (after scanning it is returned to the service recipient);

- an employment contract drawn up between the employer and the service recipient in accordance with the Labor Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the case of the provision of a proactive state service "Issuance of a temporary residence permit to foreigners and stateless persons temporarily staying in the Republic of Kazakhstan" (after scanning it is returned to the service recipient).

Photo, video, fingerprinting registration can be done at the Public Service Center or at the operational and forensic police department.

Medical insurance can also be obtained at PSCs, if there are terminals of the insurance company.

As a result, by submitting a national passport, medical certificates, a criminalist's certificate, a receipt for payment of state fees, medical insurance to the PSC, you receive a work permit within one working day. The term of the permit depends on the period for which the state fee is paid, but not more than three months.

The permit can be extended for up to one year.

To extend the permit, you must contact the PSC at the place of temporary residence on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan and provide:

- application for the extension of the permit for a labor immigrant;

- receipts for the payment of an advance payment for individual income tax (after scanning, it is returned to the service recipient);

- a previously issued permit to a labor immigrant;

- an employment contract drawn up between the employer and the service recipient in accordance with the Labor Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan (after scanning, it is returned to the service recipient);
