Re: Posof (TR) - Vale (GEO): border crossing reports

Got this via e-mail: We are traveling by bike and were today refused border crossing (crossing from Turkey to Georgia). The Georgian police didn't let us pass because this crossing is only open for trucks (so no car, bike, pedestrian can pass). We tried and argued for 1h, it was impossible, we had t...

Do you know if Swiss citizens can enter the country with a regular PCR test in English from any laboratory or institute?
Yes, that will be fine. Uzbeks want you to come. I haven't read anything about people not allowed in because their pcr test results were not valid.

Re: Kazakh/Uzbek Border Open? Kaplanbek

I am just reporting things I hear or read from elsewhere. I haven't read the Kazakh border being open, but that doesn't mean it isn't so. You can try calling the Kazakh border police. I only have the number of the Karkara Valley border post, but maybe they can already tell you more or refer you onwa...

Re: Uzbekistan summer 2021

Weather: it is very hot. Not sure what you are used to, but I don't like it. It's a dry heat, though. But still very hot.

Re: Malaria in Afghanistan?

Have you tried googling "malaria afghanistan". The first 5 results give a very good overview. Also, if you click on images there are useful maps with malaria prevalence in Afghanistan. https://www.google.com/search?q=malaria+afghanistan&source=hp&ei=Br29YKPiE9z_7_UPjZul0A0&iflsig=AINFCbYAAAAAYL3LFlp...

Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Hello! I am sorry to ask again the question. Maybe it is clear for everyone but not for me :| I am French (so not on the list of 32 nationalities) (and I am vaccinated but I understood that this last point does not matter): can I cross the land border between Kirgizstan and Uzbekistan? I understand...

Re: Buying/Selling Motorbike in Osh

Once you own the bike, it's yours and you can take it across borders. No problem there. Buying the bike is of course something that requires visits to the police for registration etc and might be difficult to do without good language skills. There are a number of people who rent out motorbikes in Os...
