Uzbekistan closed 20 Aug - 5 Sep

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

As far as I can tell, they're "officially" looking for porn, but in practice they seemed to spend 10 minutes quizzing us about the places we'd been to and that's it. Bored curiosity was the order of the day.

Hey guys,

I know this might be hard to anticipate, but anyone has any idea if this closure might happen again? Or last year it happened because of the Independence anniversary? They have a new president, so maybe it will be better this year.

Thx

We will know as soon as someone in the ministery tells us. I assume somewhere in the following weeks. If you have your visa, you are 90% sure to be able to get in.

Thanks, the tour operator that provided my LOI said I might have difficulty getting the Visa in Bishkek for a entry date on the 25th of August. But last week I got it without any problems.

Hi everyone,

I am editing the post, as I realized it was an old thread. However, here is my situation:
I have my LOI and plan to pick up my Visa in the Uzbek Embassy in Almaty on the 4th of September. I have a flight from Almaty to Tashkent on the 5th. What would you say my situation is? Should I expect the Embassy to be open on the 4th? Should I expect to have no troubles flying into Tashkent?

Thanks for the help!

I don't think the 4th of September is a public holiday, so the embassy should be open.
