Just a quick note regarding the e-Visa with the GBAO permit. We did the Pamir with just the printout and it was fine. Our passports were stamped when we entered via Uzbekistan by land (not the e-Visa). When we exited via Kyrgyzstan they kept the printout. No issues at all. PS. Black and white printo...

Re: Tajikistan launches evisa with GBAO permit

So far, no problems with eVisa although officials (traffic police) are always taken aback when they don't see the stamp. However...

The border control officers had never seen an e-Visa and have no computers nor Internet to check the numbers. Full post here: http://travelphernalia.weebly.com/blog/border-crossing-u...

Re: Kyrgyzstan Visa in Tashkent

And BTW, there's a little cafe place called La Luna *prob 200 meters, infront of the Intituti where you can go and wait. It is going to be a LONG wait.

Re: Exchanging money on arrival at airport

Maybe change just enough to get into the city as the official rate is less than half (yes, HALF!) of the rates you can get in a bazaar.
A taxi shouldn't cost that much eitherway, maybe 15-20,000 sums (bargain hard). That's what we paid for going into the airport.

Hello Everyone,

Heard today that there was a 6 something earthquake in the region of Saray-Tash. Does anyone know if this caused any landslides or border closures?

Cheers,
