​• ​The immigration system of Kazakhstan provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Nationals of Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia are both visa and work-permit exempt. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.
• Business visitors must obtain a business visa before travel unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. Business visas are available in a few subtypes (B1, B2, ​and B3) depending on the purpose of stay. Business visas can be issued for single, double, or multiple entries; visa validity varies between visa types.
• The Work Permit is used by skilled workers. Work permit validity ranges from one to three years based on the foreign national's position. Renewal options similarly vary between work permit categories.​
