Tajikistan is a beautiful mountainous country in Central Asia bordering Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan. I have visited Tajikistan twice and found it to be one of the best places on Earth. If you are a Pakistani passport holder planning to visit Tajikistan in 2023, you must obtain a visa in advance. I will share the process with you.
Types of Tajikistan Visas in Pakistan
There are multiple types of visas for Pakistani citizens. Tajikistan has an embassy in Islamabad that issues visit visas, student, business, and official visas to Pakistani citizens. In addition to these visa types, Tajikistan also issues a sticker visa on your passport and evisa online that’s also called a paper visa. I will share the process for both visas. Each visa has different requirements but generally, the requirements are very minimal.
Generally, when I have a combined tour of Central Asia then I also include Tajikistan in the itinerary as it’s very cost-effective when visiting multiple countries at the same time. I have already visited Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan during my Central Asian tour.
