Mobile Telephone

There are 4 major mobile operators in Tajikistan: Tcell, Megafon, Beeline, and Babilon. Roaming agreements exist with most international mobile phone companies but check this with your domestic operator before arrival. If you plan extensive stay in the country it might be wise to purchase a SIM card from one of eight local operators to access local tariffs rather than use your phone in roaming. Coverage is limited to the main cities and its suburbs but this improving every year. In Gorny Badakhshan coverage is getting better and most of the main roads and villages are covered.


There are internet cafes in the main cities of Tajikistan. You can buy megabytes with the SIM-card and make a wide use while travelling in remote regions.
