Detailed Tourist Information

International flights have resumed operations.

Anyone permitted to enter Uzbekistan must present a negative PCR test taken no longer than 72 hours prior to their arrival in the country.

Business visits are only permitted to representatives of foreign companies and other organisations currently operating in Uzbekistan as part of an investment project.

Passengers arriving will have to provide a certificate, in English or Russian, with a negative test result for COVID-19 and sign a paper with a commitment to 14-day self-isolation.

From 21 December 2020 until further notice British nationals either arriving directly from the UK or who have been in the UK in the last 14 days, are not permitted to travel to or to enter Uzbekistan. All other foreign nationals, with the exception of Uzbek nationals, who are arriving from the UK or who have visited the UK in the last 14 days are not permitted to enter the country either during this period.

Be aware that entry into Uzbekistan depends on the ‘colour’ classification of your country. These classifications are likely to change with little warning. Check with your travel operator before your journey.

Persons aged over 65 are recommended to remain in self-isolation and not to visit public spaces. Large group gatherings in any public place are limited.

You must wear a face mask while outside – you may be fined (up to approximately £100) if you do not comply with this regulation.
