Tourism in Tajikistan is one of the developing sectors of the country’s economy, which has been developing rapidly in recent years. In the 1990s, due to the civil war in the country, tourists from abroad restrained themselves from visiting this country for security reasons. After the end of the civil war in 1997, tourism in the country began to gradually develop and, since the mid-2000s, it has reached a qualitatively new level, thanks to improved infrastructure and quality of service.

Visa and attendance

To enter the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan, citizens of most countries of the post-Soviet space do not need a visa. These countries include: Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Morocco Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia (citizens of these countries can stay in the country without a visa for an unlimited time), Azerbaijan and Ukraine (citizens of these countries can stay in the country without a visa up to 90 days). Chinese citizens need to obtain an electronic visa to visit Tajikistan for up to 45 days. Citizens of other countries require a visa to enter the country. Of these, citizens of 48 countries are issued a visa immediately upon arrival in the country through the Dushanbe international airport. These countries include: all European countries \

Currency and exchange

The currency of Tajikistan is somoni. In large cities, there are ATMs for currency exchange. The most popular foreign currencies are the Russian ruble, US dollar, euro and Chinese yuan.

Safety

In the 1990s, due to the civil war in the country, it was unsafe to stay and travel in Tajikistan. After the end of the civil war in 1997, the situation in the country gradually began to normalize. Travel in Tajikistan is now safe, as numerous terrorists and Islamist gangs retreated to Afghanistan during the end of the civil war, and the rest were destroyed or imprisoned for long periods. It was the elimination of various threats in the country and the establishment of security that contributed to an increase in the number of tourists entering Tajikistan.
