Managing Director of Ozara Services Limited, Private Company
The Expat Centre have been very helpful in enabling me to establish my companies in the AIFC. As a non-Russian or Kazakh speaker they were able to help me navigate the various Government and banking requirements. Without the assistance of the Expat Centre this would have been much harder and taken much longer. Many thanks for your help.

The service level is simply fantastic, the application is straight forward, the time to process and turnaround the approved visa was less than a week. The most unexpected event was that the approved visa was delivered to me by the Expat Centre staff and she even explained to me the Category B visa rules and regulations. Thank you excellent support.

The depth and level of courtesy, assistance, professionalism, customer service provided by The Expat Centre exceeded my expectations, way beyond what I have experienced in all the countries that my consulting assignment has taken me to-date. The personal attention provided by Nurlan (the Head of Expat Centre), despite his busy schedule, was unprecedented, the level of assistance extended by Ainur was a delight and the customer service experience when I was at the Centre, for my work visa process, interacting with Zarina was exceptional. And I would not want to miss appreciating the logistics help provided to me by Aisultan, beyond the call of his duty.I truly believe, The Expat Centre is truly a fine example for all to emulate in professionalism and customer service.Thank you vey much.

Добрый день, Наша компания имела неоднократный опыт взаимодействия с expat центром МФЦА. Выражаем от лица нашей компании и от лица наших клиентов свою благодарность всему персоналу за быструю обратную связь, помощь в решении вопросов, связанных с получением необходимых документов, а также за обширную консультационную поддержку.Благодаря Вам у нашей компании и у наших клиентов складывается устойчивое положительное впечатление о деятельности МФЦА. С уважением и наилучшими пожеланиями, Павел Волков.
Добрый день! В начале 2018 года было принято решение расширить бизнес нашей международной инновационной компании - разработчика блокчейн платформы - Waves Platform. В качестве генерального директора казахстанского юридического лица Waves Vostok Limited я начал процесс регистрации компании в Казахстане, в юрисдикции МФЦА. Наша компания была в числе первых 20 компаний-резидентов, поэтому процедуры были еще не отработаны, и не было единой точки входа (документации и тд). Несмотря на некий хаос и неопределенность, несколько сотрудников AIFC\AFSA взяли на себя ответственность и помогли со многими вопросами, в частности Адиль Смагулов из экспат-центра и Рамазан из AFSA. В целом, все встречающиеся сотрудники на моем пути пытались помочь, но именно эти сотрудники являлись центрами компетенций по многим вопросам, поддерживая связь по телефону\почте\в мессенджерах в рабочее и нерабочее время, в будни и выходные. Хотел бы поблагодарить команду экспат-центра и AFSA за то, что нашей компании удалось в короткие сроки зарегистрироваться в МФЦА, благодаря чему мы успели к началу выставки Astana FinDays, где наш проект был представлен лично Президенту РК. С Уважением, Георгий Брянов

I've used the notary and translation services of AIFC Expat Centre three times now. They have helped me with notarzing documents in English for government agencies in the US, they have also helped me in translating and notarizing my passport from English to Russian as well as translating and notarizing my marriage certificate from Russian to English. Every time I contact them they are always more than capable and willing to help me with anything I need. It is always a quick and painless process and they make me feel comfortable and welcome. I typically always contact and work with Saule when I require their services, she is super friendly and always willing to go over the top to help out. I highly recommend AIFC Expat Centre for all expats living in Astana for any of your notary and translation needs.
