Visa advice for England’s trip to Kazakhstan

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

With England’s storming form in qualifying for South Africa 2010 it’s likely that more fans than expected will be making the trip across Europe and into Asia for the visit to Kazakhstan on Saturday, June 6th, 2009.

Kazakhstan is probably best known in England for being the birthplace of Sacha Baron Cohen’s fictional creation Borat, but we’ll avoid the cheap jokes and leave that to others. No doubt there’ll be an upsurge in sales of those disturbing green man-bikinis though.

However, England fans would be advised to leave those alone and instead spend their time getting in that all important visa application. We always advise supporters to apply as early as possible in order to avoid frustration, as the Kazakhstan authorities may struggle to process thousands of late applications.

The exact venue for the game is still to be confirmed, most of the nation’s home games take place in Almaty although there is a possibility the game could go ahead in the capital, Astana.
