After going through a nightmare in Tashkent airport I was expecting to face something similar in Dushanbe. I was surprised - in a positive way. Yes the airport is old no facilities but - it took me 15 minutes to get the visa another 15 to go through passport control and once I finished with that my suitcase was already waiting for me. No custom forms to fill out only a short immigration form. Thinking that this may have been an exception I arrived to the airport 2 hours before my departure. 5 minutes for check in no queue in passport control and literally a minute in security check (no one cares about things like liquids taking out laptops etc.). Which left me with more than an hour and half in the terminal where there is nothing to do. A small duty free (expensive) and a small bar are the only things for entertaining no wireless of course. Overall not bad at all. The new terminal building is supposed to be ready this fall.
