TAJIKISTAN visa information – Get your ELECTRONIC VISA BY EMAIL WITHIN a few days
The visa-free regime for Tajikistan applies only to citizens of ten, mostly CIS, countries: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Uzbekistan, Russia, and Ukraine.
Citizens of 121 countries (most countries of the world, incl. all western countries) are able to apply online for an electronic visa for stays with a duration of up to 60 days (within 90 days period). It is a very straightforward process. All you need to do is to visit the website www.evisa.tj. There, enter all your personal information, upload a copy of your passport and pay a fee of $50 by credit card via the website. Where you are asked to provide an address in Tajikistan, just enter the address of a hotel you have booked or that you expect to stay at.
Please note: You have the option to select whether you would like a GBAO (Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Province) permit for $20. If you intend to visit the Pamir Mountains you will need this, so make sure you have ticked the box. On your electronic visa, it will then mention that you have this permit as well.
Once you have paid for the visa and if applicable the GBAO permit, you will receive an electronic visa by email within two days. You will need to print out that electronic visa and bring it with you to Tajikistan. At the border, you need to show it together with your passport.
Please note: The electronic visa is single-entry only. If you require a multi-entry visa, you need to get several electronic visas.
Ordinary visa process
