Great news ! Can you get a visa at that border ? Did the safety situation somehow degrade this last year ?

I'm yet to make it there (we'll be there in a few days). But I'm told by several other travellers that have been through recently that the market stopped 3 years ago!

More to follow

Any news on the current situation with the Tajik-Afghan border crossing into Ishkashim. What is the threat level posed by the Taliban?
Thanks

Hello.

I want to ask: Is the boarder market still closed?
If yes, is it possible to go to the other side of the river (afghan side where the market used to be) without visas? Thans for answer.

Hi All,

Any one has some current information on this border due to the clash a few days ago.

All the best

Hi all,
Does anybody know the current situation at the border? People say it's closed but also that it's open. All because the president visits the Pamir region in Murghab and Khorog...
I'm not talking about the market but really about the border itself ;)

Hopefully anyone has past the border the last week!

Regards saskia

Hey!

Has anyone got any recent information about the border market and the possibility of crossing into the Afghan side of town on a Tajik visa? Most recent information I can find is from around a year back so I was wondering whether there have been any developments recently?

Thanks in advance!

Still closed. You could never cross over to Afghan Ishkashim without an Afghan visa; only the market.
