Learn More: eVisa GBAO

In January 2016, the Republic of Tajikistan introduced electronic visas, or e-Visas, allowing short-term visitors to obtain a visa effortlessly. These e-Visas allow foreign citizens who want to visit the country for tourist purposes to complete an electronic application and receive the electronic visa without visiting a consulate. They no longer need to deal with long lines at Tajikistan consulates or at the border.

The e-Visa GBAO is an official document permitting entry into and travel within Tajikistan and the autonomous region of Gorno-Badakhshan, which requires a special permission in addition to the Tajikistan E-Visa. You can only apply for an e-Visa GBAO only if you are outside the territory of Tajikistan. Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling out the application form with the necessary information, and once the online credit card payment is completed.

Most people don’t know a thing about Tajikistan. Some people know that it was formerly a part of the Soviet Union. Some know that it is landlocked, rugged and beautiful. But, by far, the most characteristic thing about this beautiful country, is the hospitality of its people. The population of Tajikistan is simply the most down to Earth, friendly and generous that most travelers will ever encounter. Visitors are pleasantly surprised by the fact you can simply knock on any door and ask “Chai? Plov?” and the local family will most likely reply something along the lines of “Sure, come in. Drink my tea, eat my plov and sleep in my house.”. And they will never just give you a simple meal. They will offer you more than even what they have as it is custom to shower guests with the best hospitality. It is even more impressive when you realize Tajikistan is the poorest of all Central Asian countries. Over 50% of the gross national product comes from remittances, or people working abroad sending money home. Tajikistan is bordered by Afghanistan to the south, Uzbekistan to the west, Kyrgyzstan to the north, and China to the east. Travelers will usually arrive in Dushanbe, which is in many ways similar to other former Soviet Union cities in Central Asia. The city is sprawling, with a mix of large, wide boulevards and smaller residential streets. There are certain unique and charming aspects of the city that make it authentic for visitors. Of course, there are museums, theatres, opera and ballet, but it is also possible to uncover traditional chai-honas (teahouses), Qalas (castles), and beautifully designed mosques and holy sanctuaries. The Kuhistani Badakhshan Autonomous Region, also known as Gorno-Badakhshan (GBAO) is an autonomous region in eastern Tajikistan. It is located within the Pamir Mountain range and represents about 45% of the total land area of the country. Large as it is, only about 3% of the population live here. The true beauty in the country though is to be found outside of the city. Many visitors opt to see the Fan Mountains, with its beautiful peak, glacial lakes and challenging hiking routes. It is here where you will have the best chance to experience true hospitality in Tajikistan.

The country also has a very rich history. Although the independent Republic of Tajikistan was only born after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tajik civilization goes back over 3,000 years. Evidence of the country’s incredible culture can be seen in its architecture, which includes medieval mosques, Soviet era buildings and monuments, and the ruins of ancient cities. If it is authentic local food you are after, then seek no further. Here, you can enjoy plov (similar to Persian pilaf) at almost every corner, as well as shashlik and qurutob (a dish that consists of layered crispy bread, yoghurt, tomatoes and onion, with meat being optional).
Getting to Tajikistan is becoming cheaper, as more budget friendly airlines have started flying to Dushanbe. Additionally, the cost of living is quite low, so you won’t break the bank while you are in the country. The best time to enjoy Tajikistan is the Northern Hemisphere summer: the markets are overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables and the days are long and with blue skies.

Because you simply deserve to get the most from your travel experience.

Now more than ever, the process of traveling has become a bit more complicated than what it used to be. As countries keep changing their regulations, paperwork keeps growing, and so do everyone’s stress levels.

For now, travel might feel different in several ways. People can expect to explore a world of face masks, social distancing, closed businesses, and 14-day quarantines.

Even so, iVisa.com firmly believes that traveling is one of the top ways to improve on personal and professional levels. Traveling makes you step out of your comfort zone and develop a sense of independence that will ultimately reflect on your decisions and the way you look at life in general. Traveling is indeed a form of education that can’t be learned by watching television or reading a book. It teaches important lessons and insights regarding cultures and traditions, touching the realms of history, economics, and geography and exposing you to different lifestyles and worldviews from your own. For life’s real education always happens outside your own four walls.

If you’re planning to travel soon, you’ve probably googled whether borders are open, which papers you need to present, and where you have to go to obtain that inescapable travel document. Whether it’s an electronic visa or health declaration, your travel date is coming, and you still don’t know when you’ll spare the time to complete those lengthy steps and be done with the whole process.

As a multicultural visa expert team, we understand how frustrating this is, especially when you’re trying to plan the trip of your dreams, choosing a hotel that you can afford to make ends meet, prepare reachable trip goals, and list the places you could realistically visit this year just to stay inspired.

Sometimes too much paperwork becomes an obstacle to the realization of your dreams, and that’s where we come in.

We want you to go out and buy that plane ticket, so everything else turns out to be an incredible adventure. Just don’t overthink it and let us take care of the rest. No busy lines at the airport, no queues at the embassy. Just a five-minute questionnaire that you can fill out from the comfort of your own home or anywhere in the world.
