Our Fees - CAnada

Kazakh Service Centre in Canada accepts credit cards, PayPal, money orders, wire transfers, Interac e-transfers and  chequesPlease see below our service levels and fees in order for you to determine how quickly you can obtain your visa, process your documents or request other services. The fees are in Canadian dollars (including all applicable taxes) and may change without notice at any time due to exchange rate fluctuations or changes in Kazakhstan's base consular fees. The base consular fees for visa processing or document services are not refundable.

Please note that, due to changing and toughening of Kazakhstan legislation, we no longer provide rush visa or authentication/legalization services to all clients. We only provide regular services (5-6 business days). Nonetheless, for certain corporate or our long-time clients, certain exceptions can be made, and rush service could still be provided. Please contact us for additional details about our services.

We do issue proper financial invoice/receipt of funds that one can use for proper expense and tax reporting within their own organizations/companies or for tracking his/her personal costs.

Please contact us if you any questions about our fee structure or have a large batch of visa application/documents as special volume discounts may apply.

Please contact us if your visas are for period longer than 1 year as prices will be different.  Furthermore, please also contact us if visas are for children under the age of 16 as special discounts are available.

The regular service processing time for a visa request is minimum 7 days from the time when all documents are accepted by the Embassy and all other Embassy requirements have been met. However, depending on the paperwork load on the Embassy, potential delays may be expected especially when not all requirements are met. Therefore, if timing is critical to you to get your visa by a certain deadline, it is advisable to contact us as soon as possible.

Visa support in Kazakhstan (invitation letter with visa support number) is required for all traveleres for multiple entry visas or for single-entry visas for duration of longer than 30 days. Double Tourist Visas can be issued for duration of 90 days without the invitation letter with visa support number. Canadian citizens who are originally from Kazakhstan can obtain single-entry visa for duration longer than 30 days (Loss of Kazakhstan Citizenship Certificate is required). Also, for citizens of certain countries with whom Kazakhstan did not sign a respective treaty may need such invitation letter with visa support number even for single-entry visas.  Please see this link for more information.

Authentication, Legalization and Related Fees

Please see below fees for our authentication, legalization and miscellaneous related services (translation and notarization). The fees are in Canadian dollars (including GST) and are subject to change without notice at any time.

Please also note that timing indicated below means time taken for Global Affairs of Canada ( former DFAIT)/Embassy processing only and does not include postal time to get document from you to us and back.


Authentication at Global Affairs of Canada ( former DFAIT)

The below fees for DFAIT authentication are quoted for 1 document (regardless of number of pages). However, for multi-page documents it is better if they are bound and sealed properly (with a ribbon) as this is a common notarial practice in Kazakhstan. Furthermore, if subsequent consular legalization is required, then such binding/sealing is to save funds as Embassy charges per page where legalization stamp is attested.

Nonetheless, please note that certain limitations and criteria apply for binding/sealing together as Embassy of Kazakhstan in Canada may reject such documents. It is best to contact us in advance to ensure successful legalization.

DFAIT Authentication Service Fees
Service Cost

Consular Legalization by Kazakhstan Embassy in Canada

The regular service processing time at the Embassy should be 5-6 working days from the time when all necessary documents have been received and accepted by the Embassy. However, depending on the paperwork load on the Embassy, potential delays may be expected especially when not all requirements are met.

Therefore, if timing is critical to you to get your document back by a certain deadline, it is advisable to submit documents exactly as per our requirements and to let us know in advance about your deadlines. Please note that the below legalization fees are quoted per each page of document where legalization stamp is to be attested. Thus, to save on consular legalization, it is advisable that multi-page documents be bound and sealed properly (with a ribbon) as this is a common notarial practice in Kazakhstan. Nevertheless, please bear in mind about certain limitations criteria by Kazakhstan Embassy in Canada mentioned above under section for "DFAIT Authentication".

Please contact us if you have any questions about these requirements or need referral to lawyers/notaries that can perform such an action to the Embassy's satisfaction.
