Tajikistan police have closed the main crossing point with Afghanistan -- Sher Khan Bandar --- over the past four days, officials in northern Kunduz province said on Wednesday.

I spoke today with someone who crossed into Tajikistan here recently. He took a shared car north from Kabul and was close to two Taliban attacks on the road as it went through Baghlan. No Taliban checkpoints through Kunduz Province, luckily. At the border neither side recognized his e-visa and they laughed at him. He had to pay a bribe for the Tajik border guards.

I don't think this border crossing is really an option for travellers here. This guy is a Pakistani citizen who worked for 7 years in Afghanistan and he speaks Dari. I'm writing this to let people know that the border guards here have apparently never seen an e-visa. They "laughed at the piece of paper." Even if security was not an issue, you will have this problem. Cross elsewhere or not at all. The Taliban control most rural districts in Kunduz Province. A Pakistani will pass unnoticed. You will not.
