The issue of creating and introducing the “Asian Schengen” requires more time, Deputy foreign Minister of Kazakhstan Roman Vasilenko said.
“This issue requires a deeper study, because over the years of independent development, all States have identified and developed their own entry control systems. It will take more time than we expected for its implementation, ” Roman Vasilenko commented on the situation.
The Deputy head of the Minister drew attention to the fact that work on this issue is underway.
The idea of providing tourists with a single document for entry was voiced by Dariga Nazarbayeva in June 2018. In her opinion, this visa will be beneficial to tourists who travel great distances to explore the culture of Asia. This initiative was positively evaluated in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
It was assumed that the project could be implemented in early 2019.
