Re: Update!! Tajikistan visa at Bishkek "A piece of cake"

Post by Ole2 »

Just got my Tajiki visa in Bishkek. Arrived at the embassy at 16, but they are open until 17. Paid 55 usd + 100 som for a single entry 30 days visa (didn't ask for more). Pamir permit is included if you want it. I was first told to collect it the next day, but when I said I needed the passport (Norwegian), she did the visa on the spot. :D

Hello,
Just need a quick update here.
Do we still need to provide LOI for getting a 30 days Tajik visa in Bishkek? (I'm a Hong Kong passport holder)
Thanks guys.

Embassy Report: Taijikistan Visa + GBAO permit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Post by timothychiu6 »

We arrived at the embassy on 20-01-2016 at around 3 in the afternoon. No booking needed before hand. Just need to bring the passport and a passport photo. We got a British passport and a Hong Kong passport.

Filled up the form they provided and paid on the shot. Each person paid 55usd +100 som for a 45 days double entry tourist visa with GBAO permit covering all 45 days and no LOI needed. And the lady told us to come back the next day to pick it up between 3-5 in the afternoon.

Before we left she make us a copy of our passport and wrote down the reason why we don't have a passport and stamped it just in case we stop by police.

So overall they processed it smoothly and without any problem. The lady working there speaks English and quite nice. She even allowed me to bring back the passport photo that I forgot to bring in the first visit.

Hi guys!
Getting the visa was an actual pleasure. 55$+100 som for 45 days visa plus 45 days GBAO (double entry). Same price for 30 and 45 days, same price for single and double entry.
You just need one passport photo and your passport.
It all took around 15 minutes, the lady is really nice. I can speak some Russian but I don't think there would be any problem if you only have English. Polish passport, by the way.
Good luck!

You can haggle the price down.
They charged me 75 dollars with a 4 day waiting time.
asked if I could get it cheaper and faster.
I gave the embassy lady my cutest look, and she said
"ok, 50 dollars, come back tomorrow morning"
And it was 100 som for the GBAO permit.
The GBAO permit is a whole page consuming stamp.

Met an aussie guy who speaks Farsi. He managed to get the visa in 5 minutes for 20 dollars.
It seems that 50% of the visa money goes right into the pockets of the embassy workers.

Extra info:
45 days is possible with no extra cost
Double entry is possible with no extra cost
Multiple entry is possible, but you have to convince the lady to give it to you. And it's with no extra cost

I went to the embassy at 10.30 am and got the visa in ten minutes as there was no one else waiting. $75 in cash + 100 som for permit. $55 if I could wait some days. Bulgarian passport.

Very easy process indeed to get the Tajik visa. Went at 11am, filled out two forms (available at the embassy), pasted a photo (also available at the embassy).

Cost for Canadian passports: $55 USD for visa + 200 som (that's approx $3 USD). Received the visa next day.

They made a copy of our passport and stamped it saying the original was at the embassy.

No payment receipts are issued :P
