Update 26.03.2022 – due to requests on COVID-19 Regulations for the citizens of Uzbekistan and foreign tourists, the following clarifications and additions are made to the current border crossing procedure:
– The deadline for submission of “PCR tests within 72 hours” starts from the date and time of issuance of negative PCR test results to the applicant (paper, electronic, QR code). The certificate confirming the absence of coronavirus infection in the passenger must be valid at the time of crossing the border into the Republic of Uzbekistan;
- If PCR tests are not available, the person will be explicitly tested for the presence or absence of coronavirus infection when crossing the border into Uzbekistan;
- Children up to 12 years of age do not require passports/vaccination certificates; PCR testing is also not required and they do not have to take a rapid test at the border crossing.
- All passports/vaccination certificates issued by official bodies of foreign countries are recognised at border crossings in Uzbekistan.
All the above requirements and regulations apply to Uzbek citizens, foreign citizens, persons without citizenship, as well as to the tourists coming to Uzbekistan from any other country of the world.
Uzbek legislation does not impose restrictions on the departure of all persons in relation to coronavirus infections, including the submission of PCR tests for departure. However, while the laws and hygiene regulations of the country of exit or departure place requirements on passengers, Uzbekistan has every opportunity to be tested and vaccinated against coronavirus infection.
