*Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19): The Tajik Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that all international travellers arriving in Tajikistan must provide confirmation of a negative PCR test, issued within 72 hours of arrival. Please note, the test must be a COVID-19 PCR swab test. Other test results including antibody tests are not accepted. COVID-19 entry requirements may change at short notice, and travellers to Tajikistan are strongly encouraged to check the specifics with their airline, including the timeframes for undertaking COVID-19 PCR tests, before travel.
*Entry to Tajikistan: Land border crossings between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, China and Afghanistan are closed to travellers. A small number of border points with Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan are open for cargo only. The Tajik civil aviation authority announced the temporary suspension of all flights to and from Tajikistan from 20 March. However, from 21 July Fly Dubai air has resumed weekly commercial flights between Dushanbe and Dubai. Somon Air occasionally organises flights from Dushanbe to Moscow and Frankfurt and vice-versa.
*Testing / screening on arrival: Travellers arriving in Tajikistan will be screened on arrival.
*Quarantine requirements: Travellers entering Tajikistan are currently being confined in state facilities for 14 days upon arrival; this may be subject to change.
*Testing on departure: Travellers will be screened by having their temperature taken and assessed for other COVID-19 symptoms on departure from Tajikistan. Internal Restrictions:
*Travel in Tajikistan: You should monitor updates by the Tajikistan Government and should comply with any restrictions, health or screening measures introduced by the authorities. There are no local restrictions or localised lockdowns in place, however you must wear a face covering in public spaces, including in vehicles. Breaches of regulations can result in fines or eventually imprisonment.
*Accommodation: Accommodation (hotels and private rentals, for example) are open. Some hotels in Dushanbe remain closed due to low demand.
*Public places and services: Public places and services in Tajikistan were allowed to re-open in mid-June. Local regulations, including wearing of face masks, should be observed at all times.
