The applicant must prove connection to their homeland, to talk about plans and intentions. However, for the most part the American Consulate focuses on the interview results.

Tourists travelling by hitchhiking, these rules also relate to, and they can get a visa, despite the fact that not book in advance hostels and hotels. It is important, says the Consul, to prove that you have a plan of travel and coming home. Should also be funds for flights and accommodation.

If previously Kazakhstan issued visas for 5 years, then 1.5 years ago they began to give 10 years. According to Mayer, this is the limit. Kazakhstanis can stay in the U.S. up to 6 months per trip.

If the validity of the passport expired, visa still valid, you can keep the old passport and show the visa in it, Mayer said. The exception may be those cases when the passport along with visa is pierced with a hole punch. If the visa is damaged, you need to get a new one. In this case, however, you can send documents by mail, bypassing interview.

Last year Kazakhstan received 19 329 visa in USA, including 10 385 accounts for citizens and 8 158 in the residents of Astana.
