Uzbek sum exchange rates

Post by steven »

Due to the high inflation and the big difference between bank exchange and black market exchange rates, it is often hard to keep up with the value of Uzbek money. Let's keep each other up to date.

Post your exchange rates here!

Update: since starting this topic the app/website DollarUz has started providing the best info on the black market rate. Go to their site for a quick update on the current rate: https://dollaruz.com/

Been exchanging at 4500 som per dollar recently. Rate confirmed by most of the guest houses I visited. Recently (this week) I've been having some trouble getting that rate from moneychangers, might just be bad negotiating. But I got 4450 a few days ago, so it should still be 4500 or close.

Thanks. Sounds correct. I think the 5000 quoted end of May was due to a liquidity shortage at the National Bank.

Same recent rates for me. It seems to be quite stable all over the country:

1 USD = 4450...4550 UZS
1 EUR = 4750...4850 UZS

You can still bargain a bit.
