Hi everyone, I'm considering moving to Almaty, Kazakhstan to take up a teaching position in September. My girlfriend is open to moving with me, she's a Mexican national. We've been told that it won;t be a problem for her to get a visa and move with me. However, I'm wondering what the employment prospects are for her in Kazakhstan? Will it be even legal for her to work there? Thanks in advance everyone!
I am not so sure how easy it will be for her to get a visa as you are not married, normally spouses and children get added to the work permit and get an M2 visa I think it's called. She will not be able to work legally without a work permit which needs to be processed by the company employing her, but if you join Expats in KZ group on FB then you will see plenty of expats there working illegally and quite happily telling the internet about it by discussing their monthly visa runs to Bishkek. Your school NIS or whoever should tell you the exact information regarding her visa. Good luck
