Confirmed today: Almaty does same-day processing: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1190
Bishkek Tajik visa is very well-documented, see eg here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=758 or read visa reports at http://caravanistan.com/visa/tajikistan - 15 minutes. Cheaper than Almaty.

Notice on Tajik embassy in Bishkek on 8 Sep says something like "Due to technical problems we cannot issue visas until at least Sep 15... The nearest consulate is Almaty..." I hope it really is a technical issue and not a sign that the political problems in Tajikistan are growing.

Apparently the visa processing equipment is being upgraded in Bishkek (I suspect this is what they are doing, as Tashkent seems to have had a similar issue last month) and they supposedly won't be issuing visas there until September 30th, so Almaty appears to be your best choice. Someone recently reported getting a Tajik visa in Almaty in a couple hours or on the spot.

Tadjik Consulate in Almaty

Postby arthurschmidt2000 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 12:52 pm

When I planned my trip I found a website of them with an adress in the area Sain Street/Abay Rd. They moved to a different place.

Unfortunately I don't know the new adress as my landlord organized the taxi for me. I advise strongly for going there take a taxi. Going back is simple. Walk back to the big street, cross it and turn left. After 10 min you will see a BMW Service station. Turn right. Bus 56 takes you to Alatau Metro station.

Thr consulate is open from 9 to 12.

I applied there for a visa and could collect it the next morning. 25.000 Tenge. I told them I need my passport for the Uzbek visa and this was ok for them. A copy of the passport was enough.

Quite sure our address on the site is the correct one.
