Substantial adjustments have been made to the daily schedule of the International Center of Boundary Cooperation (ICBC) "Khorgos".

If earlier the Center worked from 9 am to 5 pm, now it is from 7 am to 7 pm. The Chinese side of the "Khorgos" has also made appropriate changes to the regime of work. From April 1 this year, the pass of tourists is carried out until midnight, and then it is planned to extend to 2 o'clock in the morning.

Corrections to the activities of ICBC "Khorgos" are associated with a significant increase in visitors, both from Kazakhstan and the Chinese side. This was facilitated by the possibility of visiting the Center for Identity and the birth certificate of a child (when accompanied by one of the parents).

In addition, within the framework of the Intergovernmental agreement on the regulation of the activities of the Center, citizens of Kazakhstan, China and other foreign countries, as well as stateless persons, are allowed to visit ICBC "Khorgos", without issuing visas for up to 30 days. It is enough for foreign citizens to present a passport to the border guard officers.

"Since the beginning of this year, ICBC" Khorgos "was visited by about 700 thousand people. From the Kazakhstan side, the number of tourists was about 200 thousand people. They include more than five thousand foreign citizens who arrived from Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Israel, Lithuania, Moldova, USA, Turkey, Ukraine, Germany. Many of them come to buy goods, negotiate with business business partners," said Kurbanzhan Akhmetov, head of the investment and international cooperation department of ICBC "Khorgos"JSC.

According to him, a significant increase in the flow of visitors to ICBC "Khorgos" is an absolute indicator of the attractiveness of the Center as a platform for business cooperation, trade and tourism.
