The governments of Kazakhstan and Seychelles have announced the joint intention to establish a visa-free regime between their territories.
The proposed draft agreement, which seeks to exempt citizens of both nations from visa requirements, has been put forth by the Foreign Ministry of Kazakhstan and is open for discussion until August 28.
Should the agreement be adopted, it is expected to significantly enhance cooperation and facilitate the mutual elimination of visa restrictions.
The agreement's implementation may marginalize the Republican budget during the third and fourth quarters of 2023 and the period from 2024 to 2025.
Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa, Seychelles consists of 115 islands offering a wealth of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, vibrant coral reefs, protected nature reserves, and an array of unique wildlife, including the majestic Aldabra tortoise. Mahé serves as a central hub for exploring the surrounding islands and boasts the capital city of Victoria. The island offers diverse attractions, from the lush mountain rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park to picturesque beaches such as Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka.
Earlier, Daryo reported that Kazakhstan had 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.
Besides, Kazakhstan intends to establish a visa-free regime with San Marino. Under the proposed agreement, Kazakhstanis can stay in San Marino for up to 90 days without a visa for 180 days from the date of first entry.
