The Day of the Migration Police of Kazakhstan is celebrated in the Republic annually on April 5. This date was timed to a historical event.
As a result of the adoption by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Kazakhstan of Resolution No. 256 of April 5, 1993 - "Regulations on the Passport System in the Republic of Kazakhstan" - the Passport and Visa Service of the Republic was reorganized. The reorganization was a direct consequence of the changes that took place in Kazakhstan in accordance with the requirements of the times.
In 1999, the Passport and Visa Service was renamed the Migration Police. The tasks and functions of the service, its structure have changed. In connection with the increase in the number of foreign citizens arriving in Kazakhstan, it became necessary to regulate the procedure for their stay.
