Kazakhstan removes visa requirements to boost tourism

AFP

ASTANA -- Kazakhstan said Tuesday (January 3) it had lifted visa requirements for citizens of the European Union, OECD countries and a number of other states in a bid to boost investment and tourism.

The move, which follows a similar measure by neighbouring Uzbekistan, comes as Central Asia's largest economy has been battered by low oil prices.

The foreign ministry in Astana said that starting Sunday (January 1), citizens of EU and OECD countries, as well as Malaysia, Monaco, the United Arab Emirates and Singapore, could travel to Kazakhstan for up to 30 days without a visa.
