Imigration card scam...

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Many thanks, Tomas and Hamish.

If I encounter issues about it at Oybek, I'll inform the forum.

We entered at Kyzylart and b/c of this info, insisted on that card. They said they no longer exist, they don't have any and when I suggested they confirm in writing, we got a stamped peace of paper saying they have no immigration cards ... all friendly.

Confirmed with several people, including tourist office in Khorog, they are no longer needed/used.

No question about them leaving the country. So I think this really is an issue of the past.

We didn't get/need one either.

Coming back as promised to say that I crossed into Uzbekistan at Oybek after, and yes it wasn't even mentioned when leaving Tajikistan. Who do I contact to get that past info removed (or amended, to make it not sound like an essential thing to get) on the page I read it on? Otherwise it will only alarm future visitors.

I read this forum Tsikoudia and update all the time. Have just been traveling intensely for the past month so haen't had the time to update it yet. Will be updated within the next 2 weeks as I return home and catch up on work.
