Before your arrival in Tajikistan you will need to have a visa. In exceptional cases a tourist visa can be purchased at the Dushanbe International Airport, but this service is highly unreliable and could result in significant delays or worse, refusal – something you don’t want while on tour. If you are a citizen of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Jordan, Russia, or Ukraine, you can stay up to 90 days without a visa. For the rest of us, visas may be purchased in the following countries where a Tajik embassy is located:
To apply for a tourist visa you will need to submit two (2) visa applications, travel itinerary, two (2) passport photos (3x4 cm), a letter from Five Stans Adventure that explains your itinerary, a photocopy of the biographical page of your passport, along with the actual passport. If you are traveling to GBAO you will need a permit, which can be obtained at the embassy for approximately $20 (USD). A copy of the application can be found here:http://tajikembassy.be/content/visa-application-form. A 1-week visa costs approximately $50 (USD) and a 2-week visa costs $60 (USD).
