The Republic of Kazakhstan's entry into the global communications network has led to an increase in the stream of foreign citizens into the country, and also their participation in the national labour market. Kazakhstan's legislation contains a number of requirements for foreign citizens who wish to live and work in Kazakhstan, including a permit to engage foreign labour — this so-called 'work permit' must be obtained by an employer (the person or legal entity for whom the foreign citizen will work) from the appropriate authority.
Furthermore, foreign citizens staying in Kazakhstan must meet a number of requirements, depending on the purpose of their presence in the country - obtaining the appropriate type of visa, registering in the Republic of Kazakhstan or obtaining a individual identity number (IIN). If a foreigner wishes to carry out an entrepreneurial activity, they must be registered as an individual entrepreneur. Documentation of foreign countries must be legalised or apostillised, in accordance with international and Kazakhstan's laws.
