Kyrgyzstan Transit Visa

Kyrgyzstan Transit Visa

Are you going through Kyrgyzstan en route to another country?  You might need to get the Transit Visa for Kyrgyzstan.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Kyrgyzstan Transit Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Kyrgyzstan:  No.  U.S. citizens can obtain a one-month single-entry, non-extendable tourist visa upon arrival at the Manas International Airport outside Bishkek for a fee without invitation or sponsorship.

Visa required for non-U.S. citizens before you go to Kyrgyzstan:  If you are on this list here, you DO NOT need a visa before you go to Kyrgyzstan (for short term stays).
