Applying for a visa

Most people obtain their visas from Kyrgyz embassies abroad, (or sometimes from Kazakh or Russian embassies/consulates in countries where there is no Kyrgyz diplomatic representation, or at Manas airport in Bishkek on arrival. (There are plans to establish consular posts at other border crossing point – but at the moment these have not been implemented.)

It is usual to have to provide the following documents:

  • A letter of application
  • An application form
  • A passport photograph
  • The passport with at least one blank page – some visa agencies in America state that it must be valid for six months after the date of the intended visit – but the regulations say three months.
  • The fee

In some cases it may be necessary to provide an official invitation from a person or organization in Kyrgyzstan , visa support from the consular department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and/or possibly visa support from the Ministry of the Interior.

It is also possible to obtain a visa in Kazakh Embassies and Consulates in countries where there is no diplomatic representation of the Kyrgyz Republic . Here is a list of such countries:

Azerbaijan, Canada (Consulate – Toronto), Croatia (Consulate – Zagreb), Czech Republic ( Mission – Prague ), Egypt, France, Greece (Consulate – Athens), Hungary, Israel, Italy, South Korea, Lithuania. Mongolia, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Thailand, United Arab Emirates (Consulate – Dubai).
