Migration Services: Achievements of 25 years
Kazakhstan’s Migration Service will introduce innovations taking into account the world’s best practices. A new Center for Migration Services has been launched in Astana recently. Here, migrant workers can receive all the necessary services. Forensic experts, health workers, bank employees and insurance agents help migrants to obtain a work permit. Creation of the center based on the one-stop-shop principle has optimized the administrative procedures and increased their transparency. In the future, this experience will extend throughout the country.
ARMAN BAIMUKHAMED, ACTING DIRECTOR, DEPARTMENT OF MIGRATION SERVICE OF ASTANA:
- Previously, there were no analogues of such a center in Kazakhstan. This is a pilot project. The main goal of this center is to provide state services of registration for labor migrants. Earlier, the registration took from 4 to 6 days. Now, all this takes no longer than one hour.
