Choose the Tajikistan e-Visa type

There are two basic types of Tajikistan e-Visa to choose from:

  • single-entry: you can enter the country only one time (69 EUR)
  • multiple-entry: you can enter the country more than once (99 EUR)

Both these types allow making leisure or business trips, attending various sport and cultural events, and visiting family members and friends living in Tajikistan.

You can also add an extra GBAO permit to both single-entry and multiple-entry visas. Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region cannot be entered without a special permit, and you have to obtain it in advance. If you are a mountain lover, this upgraded visa is a must!

Whatever e-visa you select, you can use it for 3 months from the day it was issued.

Visa on arrival

In general, those nations without Tajikistan diplomatic post in their countries are allowed to apply for a tourist visa when they arrive in Tajikistan country. The visa on arrival can be granted only at one airport in the capital city of Tajikistan, in Dushanbe.

That is why, if your flight lands at other Tajikistan airport than Dushanbe International Airport, you must know that you cannot request a visa on arrival there. To avoid such situations, apply for a Tajikistan electronic visa before you go for your trip or go to the nearest Tajik embassy present in your country. Don’t risk and obtain your visa in advance!

You should remember that trying to enter the plane without a visa for Tajikistan, you may not be allowed on board. It’s at the total discretion of the airline you are flying with.
