Tajikistan visa increased to 60 days

Post by Christian77 »

The president just signed the decree: https://en.fergana.ru/news/115277/

I would welcome any reports on the newest e-visa applications. Are they still 45-days visas? Or are they showing 60 days? I would expect the 60-day period to be implemented soon, as it was a direct presidential decree. But there may be a delayed period while the e-visa people catch up...

I have not applied for the "new" visa myself but I am in the process of researching some info for a travel report that I am writing for an online magazine. And while doing so, I discovered that in the application form, it is now possible to select multiple entry (at least for a German citizenship). And it seems they have lowered the prices, too. When you apply you have now the options:
  • Single Entry, no GBAO permit - cost: 30$
  • Single Entry, with GBAO permit - cost: 50$
  • Multiple Entry, no GBAO permit - cost: 50$
  • Multiple Entry, with GBAO permit - cost: 70$
And in the FAQ section I found this:
Do I need to enter to GBAO on the exact date specified on my e-Visa?
Yes. You should enter to GBAO which is specified on your e-Visa.

On the first page of the application form there is no field for the entry date to the GBA region. Is there anyone who has done the complete application process (probably not, given the current situation). It would be nice to be able to give the latest info in my trip report.

They need to correct the FAQ section. You can enter GBAO on the day specified or any day after that (within the date range). Many people have entered after the date specified, especially cyclists who can't predict their dates exactly. Don't worry about it.

Thanks, Christian! Sorry, my post was not exactly clear. We visited Tajikistan and the Pamir region in 2019. As they have apparently now introduced a multiple entry visa, I was just wondering if this (an exact entry date to GBAO) was another change. On our visa there was only one single date which determines the visa starting date. Although we would love to go back rather sooner than later, it is unlikely to happen any time soon.

The GBAO exact entry date in the FAQ section has always been there, and it is always a source of confusion. It should be changed to "the first day on which you can enter, or any day after..." The last time I entered GBAO it was in a car with three people who all had different entry dates.
