Entering Uzbekistan multiple times visa free (over 55 US citizen)

As a US citizen who crossed the 55 mark this year, I'm eligible to enter Uzbekistan without a visa for short stays. Now the question is, can I enter the country multiple times a few days apart at various land border crossings with Tajikistan? Or do I need to apply for a multiple-entry visa? An effic...

Re: Tajikistan goes visa-free in 2022

Is it possible to enter Tajikistan more than once using the visa-free system by air and land? For instance, if I fly into Dushanbe, then a few days later go by road to Uzbekistan for a couple of days and then re-enter Tajikistan at a road border crossing, will I have trouble getting my passport stam...

Re: Questions about the Ferghana valley

I did this a couple weeks ago in reverse. There are shared taxis that meet outside the bus station (on an intersection) that go towards the border. It's 2 hours – 25 somoni in a marshurtka, double that for a seat in a cab. At the border you can walk across and then there will be drivers looking to ...

Questions about the Ferghana valley

I'm interested in the Ferghana region for its historical significance, both as the birthplace of the Baburids as well as the intrigues that eventually led to the downfall of the khanates at the hands of the Russians a few centuries later. In particular I'm interested in Kokand, Margilon and Ferghana...

Re: Dushanbe Airport Taxis

Use Google Maps in Tajikistan at your own risk. It’s often very very wrong and misleading. Yes, you can walk north from the arrivals/departures terminal directly to the street formerly known as Titov. Or from that street directly to the terminal. The only reason to walk would be that you are stayin...

Re: Dushanbe Airport Taxis

I'm wondering if someone can help me with the configuration of the airport. On Google Maps when I try to map out directions to and from the airport, it leads you to the southern end. But the terminal buildings appear to be north of the east-west runway, by Titov St and perpendicular to Ahmadi Donish...

Re: When will the Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan border reopen?

It's good to hear that some people are crossing the border now. But it seems like only tourists are allowed to do this. Does this mean that if I rent a car and driver in KG and try to go to TJ they won't let the local KG/TJ driver through the border?
