Uzbekistan Entry Restrictions
Uzbekistan is welcoming tourists according to pre-COVID entry requirements, meaning that most nationalities will either be granted visa-free entry or will be eligible for an inexpensive online tourist visa.
Travelers entering Uzbekistan by air must present a negative PCR certificate, written in English or Russian and taken within 72 hours of checking in for the flight. Travelers arriving by land may either present a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours before arrival or take an express test at the border.
Although everyone is currently required to sign a paper agreeing to 2 weeks of self-isolation upon entering Uzbekistan, this policy is no longer being enforced. Additionally, anyone who arrives to Uzbekistan with an official tour group consisting of 5 or more individuals should not need to sign the self-isolation requirement.
All arrivals from Turkey and India (including transit passengers) are currently required to take a PCR test at the airport and to quarantine while they await the test results. Anyone who tests positive will either be taken to a quarantine facility or be required to remain in a pre-approved hotel. Those who test negative are expected to remain in self-isolation for an additional 14 days.
Uzbekistan Covid Exit Requirements
Everyone who departs from Uzbekistan by air will need to show a negative PCR test. Test results are not required for domestic flights.
The standard cost of PCR testing in Uzbekistan is around 25USD per person. The result is usually ready in 4-8 hours in Tashkent, while in other regions it could take up to 12-24 hours. Payment, usually by cash, must be made by the patient prior to testing.
If you don’t wish to go to a clinic, you may order testing at your hotel for a service fee of 10 USD per person. You will need to place your request one day in advance and send a copy of your passport to the clinic. Please note that this service is available only in Tashkent.
To receive results back in 2-3 hours, express PCR testing (also available only in Tashkent) may be requested for a price of approximately 40 USD. Most clinics in Tashkent are open 24 hours, while in other regions the typical working hours are from 09:00 to 17:00.
At most clinics, you will have the option of either receiving a printed result in color or a black-and-white copy via the messaging app Telegram. You may also get your result at the telegram bot @coronavirustest_testingbot by following these steps:
1. Enter START
2. Enter your passport number
3. Enter your date of birth (date.month.year)
4. You will be given a link which you will need to open to view the results
5. You may print a black and white copy, size A4.
Please note that only printed PCR certificates will be accepted by most airlines flying in and out of Uzbekistan. The printout must either be an original in color or a black-and-white printout with a QR code.
For an example of the type of official test result which will be accepted at Tashkent International Airport, please see the following.
