The order of transition of the Kazakh-Russian border will change. Now on the custom the people of the two countries will need to show only address reference. The bill approved in Majilis.

The innovation will concern citizens of border territories, who daily cross the border. The last eight years, Kazakhs were forced to present a book of registration of citizens, abolished by the government of the Republic in 2011. Under the new rules just need the certificate indicating the permanent residence. The document will not have a prescription and you can obtain it via the Internet.

“A common form of address reference already worked out services of Kazakhstan and Russia. After the ratification of the bill we will officially send the sample to the Russian side. Unofficially, we have already started working, and all checkpoints received samples of certificates. No complaints from our citizens have not received,” – said the Minister of foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Beibut Atamkulov.

A common border of Kazakhstan and Russia is more than 7.5 thousand kilometers. To cross it in a simplified manner in 86 places.
