Kazakhstan to simplify border-crossing rules with Russia.

By bne IntelliNews June 5, 2013

Kazakh parliament approved the draft inter-government on joint control means optimization of border and customs control and exchange of information on persons and vehicles that cross the border.

According to the Finance Minister, if the customs control is abolished on the border it is possible to speed up bureaucratic formalities and avoid duplication in the work of border services of the countries.

The agreement included one-stop principle for border crossing by citizens of the two countries which means that border control will be conducted only in one country. The new agreement would create favorable conditions for foreign economic activities and boost mutual trade, according to the Kazakh MPs.

Significantly, despite distance to political integration within the Customs Union and Common Economic Space, Kazakhstan is seeking further economic integration with Russia.
