What not to do when visiting Kazakhstan

1/5
Marker Kazakhstan
Business & Communication

Don’t forget to shake hands (usually with both hands and a warm smile) when greeting. Women typically greet with a both-handed handshake or a slight nod of acknowledgement. Women friends may kiss on the cheek, and light hugs are typical for the family.

Don’t put the thumb in between your middle and index finger - it’s an obscene gesture, same as hooking two fingers together.
