Re: Uzbek Railways Website Q&A

Probably not, but as long as it's just a few typos and not a completely different name, no one will care.

In Central Asia, customs and border control does not care about return/onward tickets at all.

Re: Traveling with a dog on public transport in Uzbekistan

I don't know. The easiest way to find out would be asking at the station - I'm curious what you found out.
In Russia (and usually CIS railways have similar rules) you can carry pets on a train only in specific carriages (marked with Ж in the online schedule). Maybe the same applies in Uzbekistan.

Re: Russian Visa in Australia (EU citizen)

Your Australian visa (as it's electronic, a print-out of the visa/a visa confirmation) should suffice to be able to get at least a tourist visa. Apart from that, you'll probably need an agency anyway to get the business visa, assuming you do not have a legit business invitation, which can sort out t...

Re: Paying in USD in Tajikistan

Well, most people in any Central Asian country will probably accept USD, but usually taking more money that you'd pay when paying in the local currency, so the question is: why would you want to?

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

Leaving Russia to Estonia was no problem at all, I was obviously not the first one with a Games ticket at this border, the border guard knew how to handle it. 👍

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

As they went directly to me, I assume the provodniki told them so. BTW, the provodniki on this train didn't know that the ticket allows visa-free ...

Re: Going from Georgia to Turkey via Ferry in Black Sea

AFAIK there is no such ferry, as going overland is easier and cheaper for most people, rendering a ferry unprofitable. You could hack one by going via Odessa, but that would be expensive and lengthy.

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

Taking the train from Kiev to Minsk was a breeze, the only ones who didn't know about the visa-free thing were the Ukrainian border guards, whom I had to convince that the Belarussians wouldn't send me back without a visa. Thumbs up!
