Due to the introduction of stricter quarantine restrictions by the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in London and a number of other regions, the Consular Section of the Embassy of Kazakhstan in the United Kingdom temporarily limits its normal mode of operation and suspends all in-person visits to the Consular Section. We will keep you updated on future changes to our working hours by further notice on the Embassy’s website.
We have made this decision upon consideration of a number of factors, first and foremost – to protect the health of our visitors, as well as to comply with the recommendations of respective government agencies of Kazakhstan and the United Kingdom.
