The Government of Tajikistan has banned the entry of U.S. citizens and visitors from other countries with known COVID-19 cases into Tajikistan.
Commercial airlines have been instructed to not sell tickets to or board U.S. citizens traveling to Tajikistan. Any U.S. citizens, and citizens from other named countries, arriving at Dushanbe International Airport will be denied entry and returned to the point of origin on the next available flight.
S. citizens are being allowed to depart Tajikistan but should be aware that they will not be allowed to reenter Tajikistan until the travel ban is lifted.
The U.S. Embassy does not have specific information on how this travel ban will be implemented at land border crossings.
Given the fluid situation related to the travel ban, continue to monitor official sources of information from the Tajik Government.
The U.S. Embassy will continue to provide updated information on the travel ban as it becomes available.
All U.S. citizens are currently prohibited from entering Tajikistan.
All travelers from China, South Korea, Iran, and Japan are being placed into a 14-day quarantine.
Other travelers, regardless of where they are traveling from, who present with symptoms of COVID-19, including a fever and/or lower respiratory symptoms, are also subject to a 14-day quarantine.
If departing Tajikistan, consider postponing travel and seeking medical treatment if you are unwell on the day of travel.
The U.S. Embassy recommends that its citizens in Tajikistan decline any medical procedures beyond routine, noninvasive medical examination or temperature checks.
Travelers should be prepared for changes, with little or no advance notice, in entry/exit restrictions for Tajikistan, as well as screening and quarantine practices in transit countries that could affect travel.
