Please be sure to sign the "waiver of signature" on your package if you send your documents via ExpressMail.  We are in DC processing dossiers when the mail carrier arrives.  There is a special place the mail carrier leaves the dossiers that only he or she can see from our door, not visible to the street.  This is not necessary with UPS or FedEx, BUT PLEASE DO NOT REQUIRE A SIGNATURE.  Do not bother sending your package any faster than Standard Overnight.  We live far enough away from the airport that we only get one delivery per day.  Priority Overnight or First Overnight is just a waste of your money for our location.

Open your passport and lay it flat and put it inside another envelope.  Make sure those passports don't FEEL like passports from the outside.  Please do not use the Post Office's PRIORITY MAIL service.  Their processing time is not guaranteed and if they lose your package, they claim there is no way to trace it.  This has happened numerous times over the years we have been in business, and I don't care what the guy at the Post Office tells you, they will claim they cannot trace it if your passports are lost.  

Be sure to use the current Application Form.  It's found on:

Please email us your tracking number when you send your documents so we'll know to look for them.

1. A letter with a request to issue a visa addressed to the Consular Section of the Embassy of Kazakhstan. Please, indicate the purpose of your trip, your contact in Kazakhstan, the dates of your planned trip, and places to be visited.

2.  A check made out to The Assistant Stork for my fee of $55 for one visa - or - $40 each for two or more visas. 

3.  A prepaid, self addressed FedEx/UPS/ExpressMail (whichever you prefer) envelope for us to send you back your documents.  If you choose to send FedEx or UPS, please get an account number.  They are free and will save you money.  Go to, or to create your labels.  Do not give us a Priority Mail label to send out your completed documents unless you have created the return mailing label on-line at  We will not send back anything not trackable.  This is for your protection as well as ours.

4.  A completely filled out visa application (with photo attached)

5.  Your passport - BE SURE YOUR PASSPORTS ARE SIGNED!!!!  If signing for a child, you write THEIR name and then "(by mother)" or "(by father)" after the child's name.

6.  A US Postal money order (they won't accept anything else) made out to "Kazakhstan Embassy" for:

$60 per visa =  single entry business or private visa
$40 per visa =  single entry - 30 day - non-extendable tourist visa

The Embassy is closed every Wednesday.  They usually take 4 days to process, once in a while sooner, but they will not expedite as a general rule.  Please do not make your reservations until you have your visas in hand.  Visas are often delayed at this Embassy.
