Hi fellow travelers, We are 2 french citizens planning a trip to Kyrgyzstan. We booked our flights from Laos (where we have been living for the last 18 months) to Bishkek. However, the airline operating the first connection flight is now telling us that we need an official autorisation to enter Kyr...

Re: Kyrgyzstan E-Visa covid

Can anyone share their experiences of applying for a Kyrgyz evisa in the recent times? I am more interested in knowing the processing time. Their support handle on whatsapp tells me that 5 days is the minimum time, but I heard from several travellers that applications are pending for more than a mo...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Spoke to a friend in Tashkent who said that the 8 pm restriction is in effect but several places do remain open till 11 or so while operating under the radar. As a tourist who was planning to visit Tashkent in August, this restriction does put me off a bit. While I don't consider Tashkent a party de...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Uzbekistan gets a lot of "party tourists" from India. They get a "quarantine hotel", where they party for 2 weeks with alcohol and girls, after which they leave back to India. So the quarantine does not mean that much, let's say. Haha when I was in Tashkent, I heard about this from several people.T...

Re: Uzbekistan summer 2021

@Steven what can I expect in the second half of August in terms of the weather ? When I visited in the second half of April, I loved the weather. Warm afternoons and slightly chilly evenings that required an extra layer of clothing. Can I expect the second half of August to be somewhat similar ? Tha...

Re: Kyrgyzstan coronavirus travel re-opening/restrictions Q&A

I am planning to visit Uzbekistan again later this summer and would like to visit Kyrgyzstan as well. I happen to be from Pakistan and I've heard that e-visas for Pakistanis usually get rejected or at least that was the case pre-pandemic. Anyone got any input on this ? Should I be looking at getting...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Spent a fantastic couple of weeks in Tashkent. I got my first shot of my Covid-19 vaccine a couple of weeks before I departed to Tashkent and got my second one as soon as I got back home a few days ago. Since I had at least one vaccine in my system before I arrived in Tashkent, I was somewhat at eas...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Landed in Tashkent a couple of days ago after spending a couple of weeks in Dubai. The moment I entered the designated gate at DXB, it was obvious how seriously Uzbeks are taking this pandemic. Blatant disregard for any social distancing guidelines. On the flight, not everyone had the mask on and up...
