Re: Uzbek transit visa. What does 1 day mean?

Postby aal » Thu Aug 24, 2017 7:42 am

Hi,

Thanks for that. Turkmenistan route to Caspian sea is now ruled out for this and other reasons, (eg: my inability to predict the Caspian ferry schedule out of Turkmenbasi combined with what caravanistan says about issues overstaying Turkmen visa). Better to go by aktau, Kazakhstan, with no visa hassles. So, I plan to cross Uzbekistan from Tajikistan to Kazakhstan and catch a train west.

Assuming that I can get a 3 day Uzbek transit visa, and enter on (for example) a Monday, I now understand that I must leave on the Wednesday. Do you think it would it be possible / advisable to sleep in Samarkand on Tuesday night and exit to Kazakhstan on Wednesday (via either Chernayevka/Zhibek-Joly or Konysbayeva / Yalama border crossings?

Sorry for asking a non-visa question here, but it's all interconnected, isn't it?

Thanks for your help.

Andrew.

No worries. One issue: if you are going Kaz - Uz - Kaz, I do not think you can get a transit visa, since you are not transiting to another country. Only if you go to eg Tajikistan or Kyrgyzstan will you be actually transiting. Otherwise you need a tourist visa.

You can make it from Samarkand to Shymkent in one day easily.

Thanks Steve,

Steve: "One issue: if you are going Kaz - Uz - Kaz, I do not think you can get a transit visa"

I'm in Almaty right now, but going first to Kyrgyzstan and then Tajikistan, where I'll apply in dushanbe for the transit visa via Uzbekistan back to Kazakhstan, so no problem.

Thanks for your help. I look forward to seeing Samarkand after all.

Andrew.

Hi guys,

Is it correct that I can get a transit visa on arrival with a LOI (but not a tour)? We are not flying with Uzbek airways so no free visa, also there is no embassy in my country and leaving for Tajikistan & Kyrgyzstan in a week, where we will never be longer than a day in the capitals. Hope you guys can help me out what to do.

Hi Thijs,

I believe you are Dutch. Just get a e-visa. Will save you more than 100$.

Yes I am, but I already have a tourist evisa starting from 30 september to 28 october, which I really need untill the 28th of october. I am transiting on 22 september
Or do you mean that I can just apply for another evisa and then I just fill in arrival date 22 september departure date 23 september?

Thijs, according to the Uzbek visa section, you cannot.

You cannot apply for 2 separate e-visas before entering Uzbekistan. If you want a multiple entry visa, you will still need to apply at an embassy.

You can, however, apply for another e-visa once you have arrived in Uzbekistan, same as with the Tajik e-visa. This works, and unlike in Tajikistan, it is not illegal, so there is no need to hide it.

It might be possible to apply for 2 e-visas simultaneously if you have double nationality.

Ahh, so then the only option would have been that I applied for a visa for the 22 september and upon arriving another one for the second date...
