We can also make certified copies of passports and other documents, which also cost $50 each.

Services for Minors: For all passport services involving minors under age 16 and for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, both parents must appear together with the child to sign the applications in the presence of the consular officer. In addition, we must see an original birth certificate for the child and the passports of the parents.

Bring Current Passport: Your current passport is required if you are applying for a passport renewal or for extra pages. Your passport is also your best source of identification for notary and other services.

Once the payments are processed electronically at the Embassy in Astana, an additional receipt will be generated and returned to TCO via courier.

All guests are required to bring their U.S. passports to enter the TCO premises. Non-TCO guests who wish to obtain consular services are requested to contact Chanel Jolly, policy and advocacy advisor, Government & Public Affairs of TengizChevroil at cjolly@tengizchevroil.com.
