Tajikistan eVisa Information

The Tajikistan eVisa, an electronic visa, was introduced by the Tajik government in 2016 to expedite the process of obtaining a business visa or tourist visa for the country.

The Tajik eVisa permits a maximum stay of 60 days in Tajikistan and is valid to enter the country for 90 days.

The eVisa for Tajikistan may be issued as either a single entry or multiple entry electronic visa.

To apply for a Tajikistan visa, all foreign citizens are able to complete a simple online application form.

At the moment, it is only possible to submit a Tajikistan visa application online: the approved visa must be collected from a Tajik diplomatic mission, or picked up on arrival at Dushanbe Airport.

However, it is expected that eligible citizens will be able to complete the process exclusively online in the near future.

An approved Tajik visa online can be used to enter Tajikistan at any point of entry in the country.

Those eligible for the eVisa who wish to visit the country for longer stays, or other purposes such as to work or study, should contact their nearest Tajikistan embassy or consulate for further information.

Tajikistan eVisa Requirements

In order to submit an eVisa application, it is first necessary to meet the Tajikistan visa requirements:

  • Have a travel document (passport) valid for at least 6 months from the intended date of entry to Tajikistan
  • Supply a current email address at which to receive updates and notifications regarding the visa application
  • Provide valid credit or debit card details to pay the eVisa fee.

Additional visa requirements for Tajikistan for supporting documents may apply depending on the applicant’s nationality.

When completing the application, it is necessary to indicate your nearest consulate or embassy of Tajikistan, as at the moment it may be necessary to attend an interview before a visa can be approved.

Once approved, the visa can be collected from the same Tajik consulate, or alternatively, on arrival at Dushanbe Airport.

An approved Tajik visa can be presented to officials on arrival at Tajikistan passport control to gain entry to the country.

At the moment, it is not possible to extend a Tajikistan tourist visa. However, a Tajikistan business visa may be extended at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dushanbe.
