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.
