In April 2016 a number of amendments were introduced to the
migration legislation. In particular, the rules for entry and stay
of foreigners in the Republic of Kazakhstan, as well as their
departure from the country, were changed (by Kazakhstan Government
Decree No. 148 dated 21 January 2012) (hereinafter the Rules).
Below we describe the most important of those changes.
The moment of the start of the
calculation of the five-day period for registering foreigners has
been clarified: Foreigners temporarily staying in the Republic of
Kazakhstan (for more than five days), shall, within five calendar
days after crossing the state border, register with the bodies of
internal affairs. Previously, the Rules did not contain the exact
procedure for calculating the above-mentioned period. According to
the amendments, the calculation period starts from 00:01 of the day
during which the foreign national has crossed the state
The possibility of extending the 90
day period of stay for another 90 days for citizens of the
countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), namely the citizens
of the Russian Federation (RF), the Republic of Belarus and Armenia
(with the exception of citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic) has been
cancelled: As a result of the changes, the 90 day period of stay of
citizens will not be renewed for the same term, as it was earlier.
In particular, at the end of this period, citizens of Russia,
Belarus and Armenia are obliged to leave the territory of the
Republic of Kazakhstan and to enter it again, if necessary.
Between the Governments of Kazakhstan
and Kyrgyzstan there is a separate agreement on the procedure of
stay of citizens dated 11 May 2012, whereby citizens of the Kyrgyz
Republic have the right to extend the 90 day registration for the
same period without departing the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Citizens of the EEU countries coming
to the Republic of Kazakhstan for the purpose of employment can
apply for registration for one year with the possibility of annual
renewal without having to leave the Republic of
The procedure for entry into the
Republic of Kazakhstan for foreigners who arrive with children has
been simplified: since 2016, foreign citizens who have not reached
the age of 16 are exempt from registration.

Budget 2017 is out! In his recent Budget speech, Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat announced numerous initiatives to assist SMEs with adopting digital technologies and accessing intellectual property (IP) rights. Through these initiatives, companies may now obtain the support they need in order to tap on the digital economy and improve productivity.
However, when acquiring and using digital technologies and IP rights, there are various legal and commercial issues that companies have to be aware of. For example, what are the key legal issues to consider when dealing with technology vendors? What are the important contracts and documents that you should have? Should you bargain or negotiate terms with a vendor? Is it safe to agree to everything that a vendor wants?
