Usual Uzbekistan embassy closing times for Nowruz?

Post by rumolddo »

Does anyone know (roughly) how many days Uzbekistan embassies in other countries close for Nowruz? Would it just be Tuesday 21st or the whole week 20th-25th? Specifically KL and BKK as that's where I wanted to be but Almaty and Bishkek too would be good to know. thanks!

I think the whole week is most likely. Best to phone them if they pick up, every embassy will be different.

My friend phoned Bangkok today and a Thai person (or Thai speaker at least) answered (first time the phones been answered this week), they said there was no holiday that week but that they only operate (as normal) Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Its a huge risk, as this seems somewhat hard to believe and i have no other time to get a visa!

Update: I received an email from the Bangkok embassy a few days after my friend rang. I had asked about closure for nowruz and received an email with one word "yes". Still none the wiser on BKKs actual closures.

As for KL, the embassy has been very helpful and insist that they are only on holiday for Nowruz for the Tuesday (which they dont open on anyway) and will be open on the Wednesday and Friday as per normal.
