On illegal migration

This year, the number of foreigners crossing the state border with fictitious invitations and forged documents has increased. 1097 cases were recorded (870 in 2015).

The prosecution authorities stopped the channels of irregularforeign migrants from China and Uzbekistan organized by criminal groups in Almaty, Akmola and East Kazakhstan oblasts.

Certain problemsexisting in the current state control system have led to the present state of affairs. The single information system Berkut used bythe border guard and the internal affairs agencies for migration control is imperfect. The control over the movement of foreigners in the country has not been fully established. The above provides a fertile ground for illegal migration and corruption, and increases the terrorist threat.

The Prosecutor General's Office made specific proposals to the Government to address these challenges and improve information bases of the authorized bodies.
