Kyrgyzstan visa

Fortunately for tourists, there is a vast list of countries that have a visa-free regime in Kyrgyzstan, so their citizens don´t need to apply for a visa in order to enter this country.


According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic, the citizens of the following countries don´t need to apply for entry visa:

Indefinite visa-free regime: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Korean Democratic People’s Republic, Cuba, Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

Limited visa-free regime: Malaysia (up to 30 days), Turkey (up to 60 days), Ukraine (up to 90 days), Uzbekistan (up to 60 days), Mongolia (up to 90 days).

Limited visa-free regime for up to 60 days:  Australian Union, Republic of Austria, Kingdom of Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, The Vatican, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hungary, Federal Republic of Germany, Kingdom of the Netherlands, Hellenic Republic, Kingdom of Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Kingdom of Spain, Italian Republic, Canada,  Republic of Korea, State of Kuwait, Republic of Latvia, Republic of Lithuania, Principality of Liechtenstein, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Republic of Malta, Principality of Monaco, New Zealand, Kingdom of Norway, United Arab Emirates, Republic of Poland, Portuguese Republic, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Republic of Singapore, Slovak Republic, Republic of Slovenia, United States of America, Finland, French Republic, Republic of Croatia, Czech Republic, Swiss Confederation, Kingdom of Sweden, Republic of Estonia, State of Qatar, State of Brunei Darussalam, Kingdom of Bahrain, Japan.


Even if you are not on this lucky list it is not very difficult to apply for Kyrgyz visa since the government launched an electronic visa portal (in 2017) in order to simplify the process of applying for a tourist visa. As a result, travelers can obtain a short-term visa without visiting an embassy or a consular office of the Kyrgyz Republic, following two simple steps: applying and making the online payment.

Electronic visa application does not require more information than the traditional paper application and it gives the same right to enter the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic as the ordinary visa. All you need for applying for e-visa is internet connection, a credit or debit card for making payments and scanned copies of your documents.

You can check if you are eligible for e-Visa by going to e-Visa portal Home Page >>> Get information >>> Do I need visa? and selecting your country/region of travel document.

If you don´t want to use the portal, you can apply for visa at the nearest consular office of the Kyrgyz republic. You can find the full list at the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan.


After arriving to Kyrgyzstan, foreign country citizens are obliged to register according to the place of accommodation within 5 working days, except for those who are included in “The list of foreign countries with the indication of the time limits for registration of foreign citizens and stateless persons arriving to the Kyrgyz Republic, performed by the authorized state bodies”.

The citizens of the 92 countries listed in the mentioned document are allowed to stay without registration during the time indicated in the same document.
