Bike Friendly Airlines

Hi all, I'm currently in Bishkek, looking to fly out with my bike, preferably to SE Asia. Does anyone know any airlines who charge reasonably for bikes? I want to book a flight with Fly Dubai but I've been to their office three times now and they can't seem to tell me with my bike weight counts towa...

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

Hi,

We didn't need a PCR test for the border. We're not sure if vehicles are allowed or not. Everyone told us the border was closed but we think maybe it's just open for tourists. Unsure, sorry!

Re: Tajikistan Corona travel restrictions / e-visa issues Q&A

Great to know, I want to go through that road next month from UZ to TJ. How about the PCR test? Could you take it on the border or did you need to take it in UZ? We got a PCR test done in Samarkand, but there did seem to be something going on at the border. Can't say what for sure though I'm afraid!

Re: Tajikistan Corona travel restrictions / e-visa issues Q&A

They also had tourists that just left Dushanbe and crossed into Uzbekistan at Sarazem too. So looks like it’s safe to sa...

We plan to travel to Kazakhstan in August, have just gotten our tourism visas from the embassy (we are from Germany). Can anyone tell me more about the restrictions in the country and whether we can get the Ashyq app to access restaurants and public spaces without a Kazakh telephone number? Just tr...

Re: Tajik e-Visa Update

Great. We just got ours through too, two weeks it took in the end so not too bad.
