Money Transfers to Uzbekistan

Post by al warda »

Dear All

I am currently running out of money in Iran (due to overpriced visas etc) and am travelling through Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan etc going East.
As an international banking system does not exist in either Iran or Turkmenistan is it possible to have money transferrred to an Uzbekistan bank?

And if this is not possible how do I get out of this sticky situation?

Any ideas most appreciated.
Many thanks

No problem, everybody sends money from Russia to Uzbekistan. Moneygram, Unistream, Western Union are all available. Should be ok to receive it with a foreign passport, but in Uzbekistan, you never know of course.

Many thanks

And are there any particular banks one would recommend, as Bukhara is the closest to my border crossing this would be the best place for me.

Lets take a scenario where this was not possible.....what would you suggest?
Robbing travellers, Fly home (if you can afford it), get help from ones embassy????
Any of these recommended?

No money, no credit card, stuck in a strange country? Either go begging or head to the embassy and ask them politely to buy you a plane ticket back home, I think.
