Re: Uzbekistan travel restrictions/reopening Q&A

Here is what the US embassy in Uzbekistan says (updated 6/16)

Are U.S. citizens required to quarantine?
Only if they test positive on a PCR test after arrival. If US Citizens arrive with a valid negative test, they do not have to quarantine.

Re: Renting a car in Kazakhstan

No sorry, 23 is the limit for all the companies I know.

I agree that renting a car is a great way to travel in Kazakhstan. Maybe visit Kyrgyzstan instead? You might find a willing rental company there (maybe).
