Border closures Uzbekistan-Kyrgyzstan

Postby steven » Sun Sep 20, 2015 1:57 am

Got this in the inbox today:

Five days ago I crossed the border from Ferghana valley (Uzbekistan) to Kyrgyzstan. Both Dostyk (Osh) and Uchkorgon borders were CLOSED. Only open crossing was Izboskan (name on my GPS) but the locals called it Manyet, something like this. Anyway, it's 40km North of Andijan and I paid 4000som for a share taxi. Once on Kyrgyz side, there were taxis at the border but I hitched to the main Bushkek/Osh road (3km) and paid half price border taxis were asking to Jalal-Abad.

Updates welcome.

Hi!

We crossed the dostlyk border between andijan and och yesterday without any problem.

The border was closed for Uzbeks but open for foreigners. There was absolutely no one.
The guards were friendly, didn't ask for registrations. They still had a quick look to our pills and books, just as a sweet routine!

So a strange but comfortable atmosphere.

Thanks! Seems like the tensions are lowering again so I presume all will be back to normal soon.
