Consular Sections of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the United States provide consular services to citizens of all countries who are registered temporary or permanent residents of the United States. This includes persons in the United States for most reasons other than short-term travel i.e., family visits or tourism.

All citizens in the U.S. for short-term reasons, and without permanent residency in the U.S., must conduct their consular business with the consular section in, or assigned to, their home country.

Consular services include submition of non-visa forms, like marriage certificates, adoption forms, renunciation of citizenship, document requests, travel with or for animals, and some customs forms. Visa & Passport Services are also provided by the Consular Section.
