Qatar and Kazakhstan want to further enhance bilateral relations, particularly in the area of tourism, as the number of visitors between the two countries continue to increase, Kazakhstan ambassador Askar Shokybayev has told Gulf Times.

'We are looking to develop the ties in tourism for both sides, said the envoy, as he cited the growing number of Qataris who visit Kazakhstan, thanks to the "easy visa application process of our country for Qatar citizens and residents". 

Shokybayev said Qatar's sea- and desert-oriented vacations have enticed Kazakhstani travellers to visit the country, while Kazakhstan gives Qataris a taste of its four seasons and rich nature such as forests, mountains, rivers and steppes, among other tourism offerings.

He noted that the Kazakhstan embassy recently issued more than 500 entry permits for Qataris in a day, and expects more visa applications in the near future.

Shokybayev hopes to have a direct air connection between Qatar and Kazakhstan, which he expects will further boost not only the two countries' tourism ties but also other fields of co-operation such as trade and commerce.
