Thanks guys, much appreciated. Great to hear that a US J&J card was accepted without problems - thats what we will be travelling on.
Will report back on Friday ...
All about Uzbekistan.
Were you able to get it in Istanbul?kenmtraveller wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 12:08 pmIs the Uzbek e-visa site still down? I just tried to get an e-visa via the service on this website (iVisa) and get the message
"We are unable to accept applications for the Uzbekistan eVisa due to a technical issue on the provider's website. Please try again later."
I'm an American tourist in Istanbul, hoping to visit friends who live in Tashkent.
Interesting. Was planning on going to a gov't lab in Osh tomorrow for the test before heading to Dostyk. Any idea of the hours of availability for the border rapid test? I read that the border is open 24/7, and might want to cross at an odd hour.sebhoff wrote: ↑Sat Oct 02, 2021 10:40 amCrossed the Dostuk border this morning - and I can confirm what has been described before: rapid test for 130000 som, no hassle whatsoever. I saw a few people fighting against having the test done through their nose. In the end, the medical staff on site gave up and just swabbed their throat instead.
The immigration guy first had to ask a colleague about that strange German passport before stamping it - I guess they don’t see that many tourists at the moment.
Just left UZ to Berlin via Istanbul. In Tashkent, nobody wanted to see anything - neither the vaccination card, nor a PCR test (not even the digital registration on entry for Germany).
That's very interesting. I fly tonight from Tashkent to the US via Istanbul. Wonder if I'm have the same experience.
Arriving from Bishkek yesterday no one at arrivals asked about the test. Only at departure in Bishkek south Uzbekistan Airways.
At Tashkent airport now boarding a flight to Amsterdam via Istanbul. During check in they did ask for PCR tests, but showing our EU vaccination certificate was also fine. Make sure you are at the airport at least 2,5 hours in advance, because check in is very chaotic.
