Lots of Mobile Phones stores .. I used UCELL where they sold a 30 day tourist SIM card with 10Gig of data for 80,000 SOM .. just bring your passport .. I assume Beeline had similar options .. plenty of stores around .. the airport didn't seem particularly intersted in selling them

In case you didn't get a SIM card at the airport, you can get one in Ucell head office close to Grand Mir hotel (I asked in a small shop of Ucell but they said they only handle locals, and only HQ handles foreigners).

It's open 9h-19h incl. Saturday.
It takes about 20-30 min due to small queue + paperwork.

Tourist plans 2+2/5+5/10+10 GB (internet + communicators) cost 25/50/80k UZS +4k for SIM card.

There's a few banks around as well where you could exchange money.

Hello!
is it possible to get a SIM cart at Tashkent airport, even if we land quite late (about 1.30 AM)?

Thanks!

Yes. I arrived last week on the Turkish Airlines flight that lands at 01:05.

The desk in the middle of baggage reclaim was open and selling UCell Sim Cards.

The price was 50,000 Som for 22GB.

The money changer was also open.

Second time in Uzbekistan with same phone - IMEI registration?

Post by sebhoff »

Has anybody been back to Uzbekistan with the same phone they used on their first trip - and if yes, were there any issues? From what I have heard/read, foreign phones are only supposed to be used in the country for 30 days, and once that period has passed, they will be blocked unless their IMEI has been registered. I was in Uzbekistan last October and will be back in Tashkent for a couple of days at the end of my next trip in September/October. I suppose I could also use the Kazakh SIM-card that I will be getting and pay for data roaming, but it might be easier to get a local SIM...
