In recent years, in Kazakhstan, more and more efforts and attention from the state are paid to the development of small and medium-sized businesses. It has become much easier to open and run a business in Kazakhstan today than it was several years ago. Hence the increased interest of foreigners in doing business on the territory of our country.
Today it is illegal for foreigners to engage in entrepreneurial activity without obtaining an appropriate visa. So, in accordance with subparagraph 2 of paragraph 2 of article 40 of the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On migration of the population”, foreigners who have not received a visa to enter as business immigrants are prohibited from being founders and participants of commercial organizations.
