Need a Visa to Travel to Tajikistan?

Every traveler has their own system for booking a trip abroad. However way you like to plan your trip, it probably goes a little something like this: first, you pick your destination, and then you start researching activities, weather, what to pack, tips and tricks, and other important information regarding travel and destination. Then you book your flight and build your itinerary.

 

This is a seemingly sane way to plan your trip, and it'll be hard to miss anything with this method. However, millions of people every year, depending on what country your passport is from, one crucial step is skipped that can end up turning every plan onto its head.

 

One word can send you back where you came from without so much as taking a step outside the airport of Tajikistan. A visa.  

 

Perhaps one of the most overlooked aspects of trip planning, and yet, one of the utmost importance.  


So, what are visas, and why do you need them? 

In plain English, a visa is an official document that allows a traveler to enter a foreign country. We can differentiate between regular visas and electronic ones.

 

The traditional travel permits are obtained via an Embassy and usually require applicants to submit an extensive paperwork to support their application and validate the reason for travel.

 

Both regular and electronic visas can be issued as single-entry, double-entry, triple-entry, or even multiple-entry permits. Each country sets their own visa rules, deciding on the list of eligible countries, visa types, and the availability of the electronic visa system.

 

One of the countries that has come forward with the electronic visa system is Tajikistan! With 93% of its land covered in mountains and numerous glacier lakes, Tajikistan is a country like no other. Even though it’s often overlooked by travelers, once they find it, they are in awe!

With EVISA Express, simply TUG to Tajikistan. - 


Why do we need visas to visit Tajikistan?

You need a visa to travel to Tajikistan if your home country does not have a visa policy agreement in place. The Tajikistan government has set the entry rules for the foreign countries and requires most of them to have a visa.

 

Some countries have made deals that allow their citizens to freely travel within the borders of each other countries without the need of a visa, although only for a certain amount of time.

 

Depending on your final destination and your nationality, the visa you’ll need may differ. It is crucial to check the current visa regulations when planning a trip abroad, as they may change over time.

 

If your country needs a visa to visit Tajikistan, you must obtain it before crossing the border. Otherwise, you may not be able to go on your trip.

 

How do I know if I need a visa to visit Tajikistan?  

The easiest way to get the most accurate and up-to-date information is through the Embassy website of the country you are planning to travel to or online when using e-Visa services.

 

Check the current visa regulation of Tajikistan when planning the trip. Most foreign citizens need a visa to cross the Tajikistan border. If you do need a visa obtained prior to the travel, make sure to check if your nationality makes you eligible for electronic visas or regular ones.  


How do I obtain a regular visa? 

Depending on the country you're applying to travel to, and what visa you're applying for, the process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

 

Moreover, the application process will differ depending on if you apply for a regular visa or an electronic one. Getting a visa through an Embassy is far more complicated than applying for an e-Visa online.

 

The application process for a regular visa is usually subject to the following steps:

 

1.      Find the official immigration government website for your destination country.  

2.      Read all the available information and the visa requirements. 

3.      Fill out the visa application form.  

4.      Collect all the required documents.

5.      Pay all application fees

6.      Submit the complete paperwork at an Embassy and wait for approval.

 

Depending on what type of visa and where you are going, there can be an extra step where you have to be interviewed at an Embassy where they confirm all of your information.

 

This is why it's a good idea to start looking into visa requirements right off the bat when planning any trip since the process can take longer than expected.

 

Moreover, the paperwork to complete for regular visas is most of the times quite extensive and requires obtaining specific and officially issued documents that may take months to be handled.

 

How to get a Tajikistan visa online?

Contrary to regular visas, obtaining an electronic travel permit is more than easy! Most of the times, all applicants need is a valid passport that will not expire for a minimum of 6 months from the planned date of the trip.


The application process can be completed using any working device with an internet connection. You can use your phone, laptop, PC, or even a tablet and submit your application within minutes from home!

 

Online visa application guide:
1.   Fill the application form – provide some basic personal details as well as some relating to the upcoming trip. Put in your name, surname, birth date, nationality, and passport information.
2.  Cover the fees – choose any preferred online payment method and use it to cover the e-Visa fees. Travelers can use their credit/debit cards, PayPal accounts, PayU, or choose any other method. Once your payment registers, you will receive a confirmation number at your email address.

Rameshwaram - Tracing the footsteps of Lord Ram

It all seemed like a fantasy at first. It was an auspicious full moon night. Goddess Parvati, dressed up in all the fineries, was taking the round of the Rameshwaram temple in a golden palanquin. The accompanying chants, smoke and drum beats added to the rare spectacle. The following round by Lord Shiva from his sanctum to the goddess’ almost seemed like a royal routine. And, why not, for, he is the Lord of the Lord here in Rameshwaram – literally meaning Ram’s god.

When Lord Ram returned to these shores after slaying Ravan in Lanka, despite being on the right side, he wanted to repent for the killings. He washed his hair at the spot now called Jada Teertham before worshipping Shiv. Where Laxman, Ram’s younger brother, took bath Laxman Teertham. It so happened that Hanuman was getting late in bringing a lingam from the Himalayas for the worship, so Sita built one from sand. The lingam in the sanctum of the Ramanathaswamy temple or the Rameshwaram temple is believed to be the same. And, the 22 tanks and wells in the temple’s periphery, called teerthams, are said to absolve the sins of human beings today.

Mandore Gardens, Jodhpur

- Time has stood still since 1459 CE in Mandore -
A suburb of Jodhpur, 5 km. from Jodhpur is the small town of Mandore which was once a seat of power of prominent Rathore clan Rajputs. Not only Rathore Rajputs, Mandore had been the capital city of many Rajput kings and has played a major role in safeguarding Northern India from the attacks of western invaders and Muslim kings from Gujarat. During 6th century, a princess of Pratiharas dynasty was married into Rathore dynasty and Mandore was the Wedding Gift to the Rathore prince.

Around 1450, the capital seat was shifted to Mehrangarh Fort in order to protect the city and the residents from further attacks and invasions. However Mandore Gardens still stand high in pride to tell the glorious tales of the bygone eras seen by the Mandore. Though Mandore lost the prominence in 1459 CE as the capital seat shifted to Mehrangarh, but word abandoned cannot be used with the town. Mandore gardens have been well preserved to let visitors visualize/ imagine the glorious past of this ancient town.

Ancient temples, Cenotaphs of erstwhile Jodhpur rulers and an ancient tunnel makes an enriching trip to Mandore Gardens. Brilliant temples carved out of Sandstone are the first to get attention.

Best ways to save and invest money to fund my travels?

As a kid, I distinctly remember how elderly people used to consider visiting Varanasi or Badrinath or Vaishno Devi as once in a lifetime event. My father was an Indian Railway employee and had privilege of free train journeys; despite that our vacations were quite less, probably due to associated other expenses.


Gone are the days, when travelling was considered a luxury or once in a while affair. Travelling has now become a necessary part of our lives. Escaping Workplace Stress, Pollution are pretty honest excuses, but in reality it is financial independence which is driving this new found breed of vacationers.


During my early career days, I used to save and just save for small trips, hardly 250 -300 km. from Delhi. Such a trip along with a few friends, more than once in a year used to be a big achievement. The way I used to plan for these trips, I now see the youngsters plan for Thailand, Maldives, Eurotrip and practically much more than I ever could have thought of. By seeing the millennials plan for such foreign trips, I at times used to wonder – Who is funding their frequent travels? Are they availing Loans?

I know one of my friends, who took a loan to take his family abroad for a trip and proudly paid back a hefty interest amount for the next couple of years. Well, this was not so smart an option which he realized later, when he ended up paying interest costs to the extent of 20%.

There must be a better alternative to EMI’s and Investing is a smart way of saving. With investing comes the basic question Where and How much to invest? Being myself a travel enthusiast, I will be always open to explore any investment opportunity that can help me in continuing my travels even post my retirement with some luxury and adequate risk cushion. Why not? Why should I not?

Bisrakh Village - Birth place of demon king Ravana

An old temple stands in Greater Noida’s non-descript small Bisrakh village. Got to know one fine day, that Bisrakh village near to Noida is believed to be birth place of demon king Ravana and that ancient temple stands testimony to that. Ooh la la, I have been in Noida for the last 8 years but never had heard about this village and this associated history piece.

After speculating for a couple of weeks about the place and searching on internet about it, one fine Saturday I decided to just drive and find out more about this place. It took me around 30-35 minutes from my home to reach Bisrakh village, the birth place of Ravana. Finally I reached the spot where an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva stands. Here I am at the temple entrance praying to lord Shiva and seeking benevolence to explore this spot.

Kanch Mandir, Indore

He was known as then "Cotton King of India", had set up the first Jute Mill in India, he was from Indore and he had penchant for creating masterpieces. Millions of glass pieces have been out together in order to built this glittering temple of glass, known as Kanch Ka Mandir. Outer Hall of this temple has numerous artifacts, all made of innovative use of glass. All that glitters here is Glass, beautiful Glass:

The temple is located inside one of the most popular markets in Indore city. The construction began sometime around 1903, but location of this temple is located inside a busy market was baffling me. Probably market got developed over the time around this popular spot; however the ITWARIYA market is much older than the temple.
