There aren’t any mandatory vaccinations for those traveling to Tajikistan although you must be up-to-date with Typhoid, Tetanus Polio as well as Hepatitis A. Malaria is found in a few areas of Tajikistan and we advise you to get advice from your local GP or travel specialist about the correct immunisations and preventative treatments.
While on our trips, you will often interact with locals all with distinct customs and traditions. We therefore request that you be kind and treat them with respect. You can always count on your guides or tour-leaders to assist you.
It is first crucial to remember that Central Asia has a more flexible attitude towards Islam than its neighbours in Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is an Muslim area so it is important to be cautious in specific regions. T-shirts and shorts that are long are acceptable for males and females in urban areas, but in the case of visiting any mosques active, people should wear trousers that do not go below the knee and tops that cover shoulders. A headscarf is also recommended for women. On this trip, we will be exploring remote regions that are not frequently frequented by tourists. The people of the area are modest in their attire and so you are likely to be more comfortable with your dress.
