The Kyrgyz Republic has been issuing the all types of e-visa since 1st December, 2017.

The «Electronic visa» system allows citizens of foreign countries to obtain all types visas of the Kyrgyz Republic via the Internet, without the need to visit the diplomatic missions or consular offices of the Kyrgyz Republic abroad, as well as the visa points of the country.

Legal entities of the Kyrgyz Republic can also invite foreign citizens (both individually and as part of tourist groups) to get electronic visas.
