Most travelers will need to obtain a visa to enter Tajikistan or the GBAO region unless you are an exempt foreign national. If you are traveling to Tajikistan as a citizen of Australia, for example, you’ll have to get a visa, and the quickest way to get one for official entry is to apply for your visa online.
If you are rejected from obtaining a visa, you may want to try and get an Invitation Letter or Letter of Invitation online so you can have a more personal connection in Tajikistan. Some countries also have a harder time getting visas for their citizens who want to travel to Tajikistan, so you may need a letter of invitation to help process your visa.
Once you obtain your letter, you will still have to get a visa.
By applying online, you’ll skip the long, slow lines at your regional consulate or embassy. e-Visas are the official documents that will grant you entrance into Tajikistan at any border point or through customs at the airport.
