Buying train tickets Uzbekistan - Tajikistan

Postby Uzh » Mon Jul 29, 2019 12:34 pm

I use the train from termez to dushanbe and from khujand to samarkand.

It was not possible to buy a railway ticket in the stations. The only way is to buy it online.

At the stations of tashkent pass and south, they simply denied the existence of this trains. In termez, they told me, that there are no free seats for both trains.

So i bought the train ticket online via uzbekistan railway homepage - the train to dushanbe was almost empty, the other one from khujand leaves with me in two days.

And - no surprise - i was the only one boarding the train in termez.

I took the train Termez-Dushanbe last week. I had tried in various Uzbek stations to buy the ticket without success, but then tried the Samarkand booking office (the one downtown, not the station) and they sold me the ticket without any problem. Ride was fine, and smooth (though long) border procedures.

I took the train Dushanbe - Termez last week. Bought the tickets at the ticket office inside Dushanbe station (on the left),around 225 somoni one way.

Tajik border procedures take place before boarding the train in Dushanbe station.

Once in Uzbekistan very thorough luggage search. They also checked phone and laptop.

Other than this a very pleasant trip. I was the only passenger getting off the train in Termez.

Thanks a lot for the report, so it seems like Tajik Railways finally sells tickets to Uzbekistan.
The official price is about half of that though*, so you probably were short-changed or otherwise tricked by the cashier.
