Most travelers to Tajikistan need a visa. An additional GBAO permit (Gorno-Badakshan Autonomous Oblast) is necessary for any travel to the Pamirs.
Special permits are required to visit the regions within the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Province. OVIR permit required US$20 and another special permit (free of charge) is required for Lake Sarez.
The visa used to be valid for 45 days within a 90-day period from the entry date you fill in. Since March 1st 2020, visa validity has increased to 60 days.
The e-visa is single entry, just like the visa on arrival. The 45 days should fall entirely within the 90 days. You can apply as early as you like. You don’t have to enter on the first day of entry, you can enter at a later date as well. Similarly, you can leave before the 60 days are up, you do not have to stay until the last day. Your day of entry counts as a full day, even if you arrive at 23.55. Same with your day of exit: counts as a full day.
