The government of Kazakhstan has given the green light to an agreement with China that permits citizens from both nations to visit each other visa-free for a maximum of 30 days. As a result, Kazakhstani citizens can travel to China without a visa, while Chinese citizens can likewise travel to Kazakhstan without needing a visa.
However, if a Kazakhstani citizen plans to visit China, they must have a valid passport and a certificate proving their intention to return to their home country.
Similarly, Chinese citizens must provide a temporary travel document, semi-official passport, or ordinary passport.
Reportedly, the agreement on visa-free travel was signed on May 17, but it has only recently been approved by the Kazakhstani government.
China Visa Application Service Center states that foreign citizens traveling through China may be eligible for visa-free transit, depending on their length of stay and the specific cities and provinces they visit. A preliminary entry permit is required for a 24-hour visa-free transit, while a confirmed flight ticket and citizenship from one of 53 countries is required for a 72-hour or 144-hour visa-free transit. For a 30-day visa-free stay in Hainan province, citizens of 59 participating countries must be on tour organized by a registered operator and register with the local police or service station.
