Re: Uzbek sum exchange rates

Hello steven,

While the link you provided says you cannot change Som back into USD.

I am sure that when I was exchanging USD for Som, in a Bank, during our visit in September 2017 they will now take Som back for USD at 8150 Som /1US$

Re: Uzbek sum exchange rates

You would need to go to a Bank and enquire.

I seem to remember a figure of 8150 Som required to get 1 US$ being displayed in the exchange office window of one of the banks I used to get the Som for US$.

Outside of Uzbekistan I don't think you will find anyone who will take them off you!

Re: Uzbek sum exchange rates

The USD Exchange Rate at the Banks for the last 12 days has been 8000Som for $1 USD. While those kind 'guys' on the Black Market have been offering between 6000 & 7000 Som for $1 USD! :evil: Needless to say I stuck with the Banks, as they are normally open after 17:00hrs and also on Saturdays, w...

Re: Currency Exchange or ATM at Bishkek Airport?

Re: Currently NO sale of Train Tickets for travel in Uzbekistan?

My order was then cancelled for the Kazakhstan train tickets and I bought them direct online from Kazakhstan Railways for a very small 'Service Charge' The Uzbek train ticke...
