GBAO Permit - should I enter on the day itself?

Post by murg »

Hi there,

I've read the Tadjikistan e-visa FAQs a moment ago.

Regarding GBAO Permit:
They say that you have to enter GBAO at the exact date written at the visa.

Is this true? Neither can I tell when exactly we will enter nor do I know where the GBA Oblast is beginning geographically.

-> What will happen when we are 1 or 2 days 'late'?
-> Is there a Control regarding the entry date?
-> Where does GBA Oblast start, travelling from Dushanbe to Khorog?

As always, lot's of thanx in advance!

Take Care/enjoying your trip

Could you tell me where exactly on the site it says that you have to enter on the date itself?

I did not find that.

Plenty of people are "late," especially cyclists. You can arrive on the day your GBAO visa/permit starts, or on any day after, up until the "valid until" date. You just can't arrive before.

Don't bother yourself with where the GBAO border is on the map, all you need to concern yourself with is that the checkpoint where they check your permit is part way up the Shuroobod Pass about 20km from the city of Kulob (also written Shurobod, or Shurabad in Russia). If they check your permit anywhere else between Dushanbe and Kulob, then this is just the GKNB, Ministry of Interior or the road police. You can get by these guys without a GBAO permit.

I see, not on my website then. I will add it to the article that they have it wrong on their website.

I got my e-visa with GBAO permit today. There doesn't appear to be any restriction on the date to enter the GBAO. So this information below definitely seems to be incorrect:

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.
