GBAO permit in Osh through Osh Guesthouse

Post by bwv812 »

This isn't listed on the GBAO page, but it is possible to get a GBAO permit in Osh through the Osh guesthouse.

Obviously it is best to get your permit when you get your visa, but if this isn't possible and you find yourself in Osh and wanting to head south to Murghab, the Osh Guesthouse can arrange it (or they could arrange it when I was there in 2012, though some have suggested they no longer do). I paid $40 and it took three working days for them to get the permit. They take a scan of your passport, send it to their partners in Dushanbe, and then are sent a scan of the permit back. They print out the permit, which looks surprisingly authentic, and I was able to use it without problem. I think you're technically supposed to pick up the original in Murghab or Khorog, but I never did and didn't have any problems anywhere.

I believe $40 is their standard price.
