Re: Tajikistan Corona travel restrictions / e-visa issues Q&A

For what it’s worth, I applied for a multiple entry visa including GBAO permit around 15April(which is also when they processed my payment). It FINALLY got approved around 12June. So, unless things change, e-visa is about a 2 month turnaround time. Hey everyone, just wanted to give an update now tha...

Re: Kyrgyzstan coronavirus travel re-opening/restrictions Q&A

I actually did get an update today. This is from a tour operator, I have not been able to find an official source yet, did not get any confirmation from the Uzbek side either so it's definitely not certain. ****** Good afternoon! The tourist season has been opened! Travellers can fly to Kyrgyzstan ...

Re: KZ Visa free travel suspension

I saw this when I was looking for flight yesterday. A bit disappointing... I was hoping for good news tomorrow and a miraculous visa-free border opening. Here’s hoping it’s sooner than that!

Re: Beshariq border crossing (Uzbekistan to Tajikistan, Fergana Valley)

Any updates on this border crossing? Are the Tajik land borders still closed? Or has anyone attempted lately? I am wondering (optimistically of course) if it would be more a possibility for an exit of Tajik, entry into Uzbek as opposed to the opposite.

Re: Stihia Festival // Anybody Participating or Interested

Hi Marta! I’m on the no plan, plan. Im currently in Turkey and was trying to (Patiently) wait to hear updates on the land borders (Tajik/Kyrgyzstan) before finalizing a route as I was hoping to be able to cross there as it just makes everything much easier. Since I don’t have an exact schedule, I co...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

On a US passport, I'm applying for an Uzbek single-entry e-visa on https://e-visa.gov.uz/ Filled out form, uploaded pics, got email with activation code. But using that code, I'm unable to make a payment, has anyone successfully made a payment for Uzbek e-visa since the website restarted? If yes, w...

Re: Kyrgyzstan coronavirus travel re-opening/restrictions Q&A

In line with the previous post, I just received an answer from the Dutch honorary consul in Bishkek, who stated that the situation is relatively bad in Kyrgyzstan, with hospitals overcrowding and so on, and that entry for Dutch citizens is only allowed through Manas Airport (not a word about Osh Ai...

Re: How would you do a Afghanistan day-trip?

Still in the pre planning stages and wondering if it is even still possible to do a side trip to Afghanistan (if the Tajik land borders were to open). Im assuming I would still need a covid test to enter, and one to leave. Is it even possible to do a covid test in the Wakhan Valley, or would I essen...
