Back in 2016 in Tajikistan, in order to develop tourism, the authorities introduced a new type of service – electronic visa (E-Visa). The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan believed that it would simplify visa obtaining process for foreigners. However, travel companies and some tourists complain that these visas are difficult to obtain.
For further development of tourism sector, we need to transit from quantity to quality by switching to a higher paid market, according to experts of both countries.
Rural tourism can become another mechanism for increasing the efficiency of Tajik agriculture and economy altogether.
