Re: Coronavirus border closures & re-openings

According to news reports yesterday Tajikistan is allowing flights to/from Uzbekistan amd Dubai on the 1st of July. Travellers must have a medical note flsaying they are COVID free. Not sure how that will practically work out, but will hear more in the next few days, I am sure.

Re: Tajikistan closes borders to citizens of 35 countries (coronavirus)

Talked to a border guard at oybek today...they are only refusing entry to Iran, South korea and Italian citizens.

Does this just affect entry via a flight?

Re: Uzbekistan e-visa Q&A

From what I understand children that are with parents do not need a visa to enter. Not sure if you need a notarized note if only one parent is travelling.

Re: Wakhan Red Hair

Locals seem to think the red hair is a genetic leftover from the armies of Alexander. Not sure if there is any basis for this.

Everything fine?

A Tajik news outlet reported this morning that a group of tourists were attacked in a village outside of Almaty. I couldn't verify the story. Their source was the Kazakh Tourism facebook page, but I didn't see anything there.

Anyone know anything?

Re: Registration for Sim card in Tajikistan

Yes the law is that you need to register to buy a sim card and the sim card will only work for the duration of your registration. You can always ask a local to buy a sim card for you (this is illegal) The sim card will expire thirty days after your last use.
