To be eligible for consideration, candidates, besides local nationals with the exception of certain Eligible Family Members of Mission employees, must have the required residency permit at the time they apply for local positions in Bishkek.
Position vacancies are usually advertised inside and outside concurrently. However, make sure you are eligible to apply as some positions may be restricted to Mission employees only, or other specific categories.
