ARDAK MADIYEV, STAFF, CONSULAR SERVICE OF KAZAKHSTAN:
- Currently, it is available for all Android users. According to our analysis, almost 60% of the population uses Android. It was a bit harder with iOS users because the U.S. set out additional requirements for the application to run in mass operation. This problem is solved now. The program will be available for iPhone users soon.
