Re: Pamir Highway checkpoints

I was cycling solo via the pass early Oct 2016 and had my bags pulled apart and searched like nothing else by the two guards in the middle of a sand storm.

I had my Tajik visa processed in under 45 minutes today, Australian passport. $75USD for 45 days and with GBAO. Guards and lady behind counter super friendly.
