Re: Coronavirus border closures

Kazakhstan has suspended all visa-free travel until 1st November 2020 https://primeminister.kz/ru/decisions/17042020-220 It says it covers entries and exits, so I don't know what that means for people who arrived visa-free and then got stuck when the borders closed. Is it safe to assume they're doi...

Re: Coronavirus: when can we start traveling again?

Christian has some good points. I think it is going to take a LONG time before things get back to " normal " and the dust eventually clears. I hope I'll be proven wrong, but that's what I fear. The main issue in the long run for us who can afford to travel in economically undeveloped countries ( fo...

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

Selfishly, I hope this will ease off come late June, but I'm not holding my breath. Would folks here cancel reservations yet for summer or wait for a while? I'm tempted to wait it out, but am obviously concerned.

Re: Kazakhstan Corona virus quarantine

Hi again everyone. This came through the US embassy this morning. Seems the government has loosened up on some of the countries previously mentioned: https://kz.usembassy.gov/health-alert-u ... y-19-2020/

So, not horrible--at least for now.

Re: Coronavirus Monitoring

That is astonishing, and a huge amount of countries and potential tourists are affected by this. The UK are currently on nine cases, so one more and they'll receive the same treatment. I'll be flying to Nur-Sultan from Budapest next month on either my British or Irish passport. Happily there are no...

Re: Coronavirus Monitoring

If I was slated to go in March or April, I'd definitely cancel. I'm wondering if I should hold off on cancelling since I'm traveling in late May/June and maybe things will change by then (hopefully!). That said, I also know the longer I wait it out, the less adjustments I might be able to make.
