Visa & Passport Requirements for Tajikistan

AsiaTajikistanVisa & Passport Requirements for Tajikistan

Read next

For trips of up to 90 days, nationals of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Russia, and Ukraine do not need a visa.

Visas are becoming more simple to acquire, following the lead of other Central Asian nations, especially for citizens of affluent countries. This strategy is intended to boost tourism in Tajikistan. The most significant change has been the elimination of OVIR registration for tourist trips lasting less than 30 days. Letters of invitation are no longer required upon arrival at Dushanbe International Airport, but are required to prearrange a visa from the British and American embassies.

Since July 2016, residents of most affluent nations have been able to get 45-day evisas for $50 at Along with the evisa, you may apply for a GBAO permission. The evisa is valid at all land crossings and airports, and it is usually granted within two working days. Some users have experienced teething difficulties with the evisa system (see Caravanistan), although the technology generally works smoothly and saves a page in your passport.

Visas must be obtained in advance at Tajik embassies, online (see above), or upon arrival at Dushanbe airport. However, owing to a recent legislative reform, these visas are now only accessible to residents of countries that do not have a Tajik embassy. You may save time by completing and printing a form before arriving. It is preferable to utilize the Tajik form and bring two passport photographs, a handful of passport photocopies, and cash. The whole procedure takes around ten minutes. Tajikistan tourist visas cost $US25 at Dushanbe International Airport and consulate agents throughout the world. If you want to visit the GBAO area, you must get a special permission. It is easy to acquire while applying for a visa or in Dushanbe; the fee is USD50 locally or at Central Asian consulates, but it is generally free in Europe.

If you are crossing a land border, you must get a visa before you arrive. The embassy in Vienna and the embassy in London are the most professional. You may have difficulty obtaining a visa at certain consulates, which will simply state “get it at the airport” (e.g., Kabul), which is inconvenient if you wish to travel by land.
