Visa Support (important note)

Though there is a degree of confusion from internet sources on visa procedures in Central Asia, as of now Visa Support is not required strictly speaking for tourists trips to Central Asia by citizens of western countries. See the Kyrgyzstan Visa Country Lists. Visa officers in these countries are generally entitled to issue tourist visas. This is especially applicable to citizens of the western country where the concerned embassy is located. Moreover, citizens of most European countries, North American countries, Australasian countries, former Soviet countries, and Japan either do not require visas or do not require visa invitations even for visa applications made in other countries. Citizens of other countries may require visa support. In March 2012, Kyrgyzstan government has put a one month moratorium on issue of visa invitations.


Kyrgyzstan Visa Support, who may issue

Only Tourism company registered under the Kyrgyz Ministry of Justice, affiliated by the Consular Affairs Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan may issue tourist visa support after due permission from the Department of Consular Affairs in Bishkek.

Uzbekistan Kazakhstan visa support / visa invitation

Visitors to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan no longer require a letter of invitation from a tourist agency in Central Asia. We do not issue invitations for any of the three countries including Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, but several local companies registered in these countries might be able to help you for a fee if you are told to do so by the consulate or embassy of your choice. The following is the format for sending this information -

1. Full name

5. Nationality
6. Passport number
7. Date of issue
8. Date of expire

From - to (please indicate exact dates for each country)
13. Flight details
14. Your approximate program for each country
15. Fax (incl. country code) to send copy of visa invitation
16. E-mail address

If a company invites tourists, then it is obliged to get them registered at the local OVIR office upon their arrival in Uzbekistan or Kazakhstan, if it is required for those particular tourists to do so. This procedure, however, is not required for most tourists with a few exceptions. You can also get the facility of visa issuance upon arrival at Almaty if you belong to a western country.

Kyrgyzstan visa support / visa invitation

Visitors to Kyrgyzstan from western countries do not need generally to get a visa invitation from a tour company there. They can, however, get invitations if required by the local consulate or embassy to do so, from a company registered in Kyrgyzstan. Certain details are needed for issuing this document. For Kyrgyzstan these details are as follows -

1) Name of person (please indicate family name and your name)
2) Passport details
3) Nationality 4) Occupation 5) Home Address 6) Flight details
7) Intended dates of tour
8) Fax (incl. country code) to send copy of visa invitation

Any company that invites tourists is obliged to get them registered at the OVIR office upon arrival in Bishkek, if they are required to do so. However, this is a requirement for visitors from very few countries. You can also get visa issuance upon arrival in Manas airport if you belong to a western country.
