'The President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon on June 15 at the meeting promised that "Tajikistan will contribute to the promotion of cooperation in the field of tourism."'

I wonder how delaying tourist visas for up to 2 weeks in the lead up to the busiest time of the year, forcing hotels to cancel reservations of foreign visitors etc factors into those plans?

Our e-visa took 5 days. We met a few people in Samarkand who were waiting for their visas as well, for some of them it took 14 days! As the visa is not date specific and it gives you 90 days to enter the country, we would recommend applying at least 10 days prior the date you want to enter. Also we printed it out and it was required at the border. BTW, we crossed through Penjikent and were asked for the registration slips but there was no problem when we said we didn't have any as we sleep in our motorhome! :)

Applied for an EVisa on the 14th. Received an email on the 17th stating it had been rejected (my friend had his accepted at the exact same time. Re-applied at 1am on the 18th and by midday on the 19th the status was ‘assessed’ but ‘awaiting confirmation’. It is now the 23rd and still nothing.

Has anyone had their evisa arrive during the weekend or will I have to wait till Monday to expect an email?

Hey guys,

One of our guests has just ordered their Tajikistan e-visa. It arrived after a week, however there's no mention anywhere on the paper of the GBAO permit on it, which they selected and paid for. Is this something that is noted electronically, and they will collect at the border, or have they been issued an e-visa without their GBAO permit?

Many thanks.

My e-visa from last year had a red "GBAO" watermark/stamp on it. It may be noted electronically, but I'm not sure if the border guards on the Pamir Highway crossing even have a connection to their system in Dushanbe.

Thanks for the quick reply buddy. That's what I assumed from some quick Google searches, that they've been issued a visa without the permit. Strange as they've been charged for it. They've been emailing the e-visa people, hopefully they hear back soon.

I applied for Tajik Evisa (plus GABO) with a Chinese passport on 26th May and received on 17th June. My friend can’t get through the payment system after several trying. Anyone got the same issue?

To help give people an idea of the most recent processing times: I submitted my application on Thursday morning (June 20th) and received it first thing this morning (Wednesday the 26th). That's 4 working days.
