Kyrgyzstan Visa – How To Apply For A Kyrgyz Visa

Things to keep in mind regarding your United States passport

A United States passport that is valid for at least three months after departure from Kyrgyzstan will suffice under the guidelines of Kyrgyzstan immigration requirements, although 6 months is ideal. If this guideline is not met, your trip may be cut short or you will be denied entry to Kyrgyzstan.

It is recommended that six months validity after your intended stay in a country should be on your passport when you leave that country. Though Kyrgyzstan only requires 3-month validity, other countries that neighbor this country may require 6 months validity. Make sure you are aware of these requirements before you travel to any countries nearby Kyrgyzstan.
