This is to inform you that from 02nd Oct 2023 BLS Italy Visa Application Centers will be operational from 08:00 AM to 20:00 PM (Monday to Friday) and 10:00 AM to 14:00 PM (Saturday).
We kindly ask you to take the visa processing time into consideration before applying for a visa. We do recommend lodging visa applications well in advance (at least 15 days before the departure date). Applications cannot be lodged earlier than six months before the start of the intended journey.
Once the visa processing procedures are completed by the Embassy, the passports will be delivered to Visa Application Center. Applicants can collect the passports at Visa Application Center.
If an applicant insists on collecting the passport during the examination period at the Embassy, the only option is to withdraw the visa application. In this case, the request, dated and signed by the applicant, must be submitted in writing to the Embassy through the Visa Application Center. The withdrawal of the application does not entitle the applicant to a refund of the consular and service fee.
BLS International Services Ltd. is a trustworthy partner of the Embassy of Italy in Kazakhstan for managing the administrative and non-judgmental tasks of processing visa applications.
Applicants are solely responsible for the application(s) they submit. Any false information or misrepresentation of facts, incomplete or invalid supporting documents will have a direct bearing on the decision carried out by the Embassy of Italy Kazakhstan.
