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

Due to these restrictions, the British Embassy will not be able to provide a full range of consular services to British nationals currently in GBAO.

There was a shooting incident on the Tajikistan/Afghanistan border close to the town of Khorog, the administrative centre of GBAO on 10 June 2014, following earlier outbreaks of localised violence in Khorog in late May 2014. The government has increased security and there is a heightened military presence on the streets. Further violence is possible.

If you’re currently in GBAO, you should consider leaving. If you decide to stay, you should keep off the streets for the time being and avoid any large gatherings. The FCO is following the situation closely and seeking further clarity regarding travel permits and the situation in the area. You should check this site regularly for further updates.

Tajikistan’s borders with neighbouring countries are subject to closure without notice. Check in advance which border posts are currently open. You may also wish to check with the British embassy in Dushanbe for up to date information on border restrictions.

Hi, we have just received today (13th June) a GBAO permit from Tajik embassy in Bishkek! What's more, we know of one person who also got it yesterday from same embassy plus on other forums you can now read some more successful stories from Bishkek so hopefully things are getting back to normal, at least for the time being.

Having said that, we will be moving on to Dushanbe on 15th June before heading off to Khorog. If anybody is also going to the Pamirs same or similar time and is interested in sharing a transportation, do let us know here or at [email protected].

Save travels!
