Uch Kurgan border crossing UZ-KG

Postby magunkutjan » Sun Jul 12, 2015 5:14 pm

We crossed the Uch-Kurgan border on the 25th June. We cycled from Uzbekistan to Kyrgyzstan. The border is open between 8am and 8pm every day. The guards were nice on both sides. We had some questions where we slept, what did we see, but they didn't checked our registrations forms of the hotels. They checked the bags a bit as well. They were thorough but very polite and nice. On the kyrgyz side we spent only 10 minutes, just a stamp and they were checking if we needed a visa.

Hello all,

Does anyone have any more recent information or advice about the Uch-Kurgan crossing? A friend and I are hoping to travel (this September) from Uzbek into Kyrgystan at this crossing.

Many thanks.

We crossed the boarder at Uchkurgan some days ago (15th Nov 2017) It was no problem at all. On the kirgis side was a long quew, but being a foreigner they let us go first (which saved us 1-2 h). The stuff at the boarder was very kind. On the osbek side they checked our cellphone, i-pad etc which took half an hour. But they where always friendly, and at the end they helped us to catch a taxi at a good pice to Andejan.

Hello travellers, Hello Caravanistan

Today we tried to cross the border from Kyrgyzstan to Uzbekistan. We wanted to use the border Uch-Kurgan (on the main road between Dostuk and Kyrgyskorgon on kyrgys side)... But it was closed. The road, which we thought is the border, was blocked by stones and fences. Maybe we didnt find the real bordercrossing. But we were looking around and also asked some border guards. Some pointed the direction of the place where we have been; others send us to Osh.

After that we tried the Izboskan border (between Byurgendyu on kyrgys side and Izboskan on uzbek side). And this one was open; but only for walking ... not for cars.
The crossing was very easy and fast. We have been the only tourists. All other people seemed to be people from the villages around. They didnt really check our luggage ... just a small look in the big backpack from above.
On the other side a lot of people tried to organise a taxi for us. It was a bit hard to find a calm minute to think about what doing next and to plan. Finally we took a shared taxi (or minibus?) to Andijan for 1,5$ per person. (We have been two persons)

Just another word how we got to the border on kyrgys side. Also if it is not important for most travellers.
We have been quite fortunate. We met a nice dutch couple in Arslanbob the day before. They also wanted to cross the border at Uch-Kurgan. And they had a car. Therefore we were very lucky to join them. That saved us a lot of time to get to the border. Therefore we easily get to the Uch-Kurgan border and could drive around and search for the border easily. Unfortunately as I said I think the border was closed. We also easily get to the Andijan border with the car. Me and my friend have been lucky, because we could cross the border there by foot. The dutch couple on the other side had to go the whole way to Osh to cross the border there, because of the car. This was very sad.

To the dutch couple: (because we didnt exchange numbers, whatsapp, ...)
If you read that, you can take a look into facebook for my profile for "Silvio Fedgenhäuer". We would like to know how your day finally was. It would be nice to hear from you.

We asked several local people if the Uchkurgan border was open, but everybody said it's closed. We didn't check that ourselves.

Hi, we tried to cross the Uchkurgon border from Kyrgyzstan to Uzbekistan yesterday and we can confirm it is closed; it seems closed for a long time because the road is already taken over by vegetation and a fence is blocking the way.

As we were there by car we could also not use the Andijan border because it is for pedestrians only.

The border crossing at Dzjalal-Abad was also closed, although it seemed to be open sometimes but not at the moment.

We had to drive all the way to Osh to cross the border by car. A detour of approx. 300km. There we could cross the border easily. Even with priority because we are European tourists (which was a bit embarrassing to be honest).

The border crossing page states that the Izboskan crossing is open for pedestrians. I'm guessing this would cover cyclists too, but has anyone heard about cyclists using this crossing, as a shortcut to the M41?
