Question: Entering Afghanistan from Wakhan corridor

  • Do you know whether we are required to leave our passport at the customs office before entering Afghan side of Wakhan valley? Is that considered normal practice? 
  • Do they put an Afghan stamp on the passport if we go to the Afghan side of the corridor? 

Thank you for your response!

To cross the Tajik- Afghan border to Wakhan Coridor you should have afghan Visa. We provide it in one working day in Khorog.  Ones you cross the border the border post will put a stamp in your passport.

For crossing border to AFGAN Saturday bazar you don't need a visa. You just leave your passport in border post and will collect it ones you come back to Tajik side. In this case you will not have a stamp in your passport. It is normal practice.

No. Your passports just be collected in controll zone in Tajik side. After coming back you easelly will take back your passports.

If we just visit the Ishkashim Afghan market then there is no visa required? Do we need a double entry visa to Tajikistan then? 

Many thanks
