This Advice was last issued on Thursday, 28 August 2014.
This advice contains updated information under Safety and security: Civil unrest/Political tension (Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast- special travel permit required and sporadic and localised violence in Korugh town in June 2014 resulting in heightened security and military presence on the streets). We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Tajikistan overall because of the threat of terrorist attack and potential for civil unrest. For border regions with the Kyrgyz Republic, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan we advise Australians to reconsider your need to travel due to the risk of land mines and criminal activity. We have increased the level for GBAO to reconsider your need to travel due to the unpredictable security situation.
