Visa D
Hi, my name is Viktoriya and I'm sending this email on behalf of my cousin. She is currently in Geneva trying to apply for Visa D. We were just wondering how long it will take to get the visa if she applies in Almaty embassy. Will it be possible to get it before new Year's?

Look at Kazakhstan from Kazakhstan
Nation’s New English Daily. Serving all foreigners interested in Kazakhstan

Russian and Kazakh language press review, Sept. 2: Opposition activists from Kazakhstan’s Popular Front Movement were severely beaten in Aktau
Whispers in the corridors of power: It is rumored…
Aunty Rosa, who throws a stone at Medvedev and Nazarbayev
The role that Mongols played in the formation of ethnic Kazakhs
Appeal to Mr.Nazarbayev from protesting Kazakh oil workers: We had lost faith in you and now, regardless of whether you want to or not, we decided to quit Nur Otan party
The question of how long Mr. Nazarbayev, the longest serving post-Soviet leader, can hold on to power not only does not lose relevance, but it becomes even more acute
Former head of the “The International Center for Cross-Border Cooperation “Khorgos” Nurlan Seidali is sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment with confiscation of property
What is necessary for Mukhtar Ablyazov to overthrow Mr.Nazarbayev?!
Dinara Kulibayeva became the richest woman in the CIS and the former Soviet Union, and the second most influential woman in Central Asia
Why did Nursultan Nazarbayev dismiss the governor of Aktobe region?
Zhaksylyk Doskaliyev is sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment with the confiscation of property
Mr. Nazarbayev has once again put himself in an awkward position today
It’s easier to become President for a black American in the formerly apartheidal USA, than, as evidenced by “Le Figaro”, for a Kazakh from the Lesser Zhuz in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan cannot remain underpopulated in the overpopulated world
One more decade with Mr. Nazarbayev is becoming increasingly unlikely: Never before president has been as weak as he is now and Kazakhs have been as restive as they are now
It looks like Viktor Khrapunov’s son, Iliyas Khrapunov, who is married to the daughter of Mukhtar Ablyazov, rushed to conclusions
Who is the first person to succeed to the presidency – T.Kulibayev, K.Massimov or someone else?!
