Travel to Kyrgyzstan has significantly expanded in recent years as more people come to walk, camp, and ride horses across the country’s breathtaking landscape.


As the first of the Central Asian countries to reduce its visa requirements (the majority of western and developed countries may enter without a visa), a robust tourism industry has emerged.

How to Travel to Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is serviced by two main airports; Bishkek and Osh. The vast majority of international flight will land in Bishkek.

If you’re looking at flying into Osh from overseas then you will either have to transfer in Bishkek or the regional hubs of Almaty in Kazakhstan or Tashkent in Uzbekistan.

Flights to Kyrgyzstan can be pricey depending on where you’re flying from. I would recommend researching across a number of platforms and book your flights as early as possible. 

Although Kyrgyzstan is well connected to its neighbors, if you’re flying from outside of the region it’s very likely you will need to transfer.

If flying from Asia, Chinese Airlines may be among the cheapest, however, you will have to transfer in China. Flying from the west the choices are far more varied.

As the majority of international flights require a layover, it’s wise to check if there are any visa requirements in the country you are transferring in.

It is also a good idea to browse for flights in incognito mode, or alternatively you can clear the cache in your browser periodically.

Many travel sites will charge higher fares if they know you are visiting their sites frequently to search for flights.

If you find a flight on a site like Skyscanner or Kayak check the cost of booking the flight directly with the airline. It’s not uncommon for the flight to be much cheaper when booking directly through the airline.

Visa Requirements for Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan has the most liberal visa policy of any of the Central Asian nations and as a result, travel to Kyrgyzstan is easier and more straightforward than ever.

Citizens of a number of countries (mostly western or developed nations) are granted a 30 or 60-day visa upon arrival. Check with your country’s foreign office to find out if you qualify. 

Citizens that do not qualify for this will need to get an E-visa. However, check where you can enter or exit the country. Some nationalities will be granted E-visas that will have specific entry and exit requirements.

For example, E-visas for Chinese citizens only allows them to enter the country at Bishkek or Osh airports or through one land border with Kazakhstan.

Additionally, some E-visas will require citizens to register within 48 hours of arriving in Kyrgyzstan. Check your countries visa policy to be sure.

Your guesthouse or hotel should be able to register you directly. If they can’t (this is unlikely) you will need to head to the Public Security Bureau with the required documentation which is located on Young Guard Blvd (молодой гвардии молодой гвардии).

If you’re staying in an AirBnB or apartment then you will not be registered with the government and will definitely need to head to the Public Security Bureau.

However, the above is only for those that require an E-visa and even then it’s not the case for every single nationality that requires an E-visa. If you require an E-visa to visit Kyrgyzstan make sure you check the requirements carefully. Travel to Kyrgyzstan.
