Kyrgyzstan has canceled the visa run for foreigners
Kyrgyzstan authorities have announced the cancellation of the visa run for foreign citizens, a practice that allowed the extension of the stay in the country by crossing the border. The new visa-free regime will operate on a “60/120” principle, meaning a 60-day stay with a possible re-entry after 60 days from the exit. For those who can stay for 90 days, the “90/180” principle applies.
The cancellation of the visa run was explained by the authorities as an effort to manage migration flows more effectively and to enhance the country’s security. Incoming visitors were also advised to process the necessary permits in advance.
Following Kazakhstan’s visa run cancellation, Kyrgyzstan has followed suit, considering the increasing number of foreigners entering the country.
