An area we would like to pay special attention to is advising on the procedure for engaging foreign labor in Kazakhstan. Given an extensive list of legal requirements governing the procedure, employers often do not have a comprehensive understanding of all stages of engaging foreign employees.

The practice shows that the lack of perfect information may entail a range of breaches by employers, most of which involve the application of penalties and negatively affect the process of hiring non-residents in the future. Given the above, we offer our clients detailed advice, not only on the procedure for obtaining permits to engage foreign labor but also on the following issues:

Obtaining a visa for the entry of foreigners into Kazakhstan for the purposes of a business trip, secondment, and engaging in labor activities:
  • obtaining visa for the entry of foreigners into Kazakhstan for the purposes of business trip, secondment, and engaging in labour activities;

  • registration of foreigners with migration and tax authorities;

  • specific features of foreign citizens employment. 

Please also note that the legislation governing the procedure for engaging foreign labour, regardless of the requirements contained therein, are more regulated by the application practice of one or other rules of public authorities. Our firm has branches in all regions of Kazakhstan, which allows us to provide advice in view of the specific requirements established in the territorial public authorities.
