Uzbekistan Travel Restrictions - Covid-19

Last updated: March 16, 2022

We recognize the significant uncertainty tourists are now facing when trying to make travel plans. With this in mind, we are currently offering free cancellation on all of our tours and travel services. For more details, check out our Cancellation Policy During COVID-19 Pandemic.

Uzbekistan and Coronavirus

Effective 1 March 2022 mandatory face mask regime has been cancelled in Uzbekistan. However, it is still advised to wear masks in public places where necessary social distancing cannot be maintained (shopping malls, airports, businesses and entertainment venues, etc.).

Public transport in and between cities is functioning normally, and all establishments are operating across Uzbekistan. Hotels and guesthouses remain open but are subject to special health and safety rules.

Vaccination is now compulsory for employees of all companies and all university students. Uzbekistan offers AstraZeneca, Moderna, Sputnik V, Pfizer and a Chinese vaccine to citizens and residents. As of 1 March 2022, more than 12 million people (about 60% of the adult population) had been fully vaccinated in Uzbekistan, and plans are now underway to accelerate both initial immunization and booster shots.

Uzbekistan Travel Restrictions - Covid-19

Beginning 16 March 2022, travelers arriving from foreign countries, if they have a valid vaccination passport are not required to have a PCR test result or an express antigen test for coronavirus infection. If travelers do not have vaccination passport, they must present a PCR test with a negative result for coronavirus taken at least 48 hours before entry to the republic or undergo express test at the airport or land-border.

Uzbekistan’s visa-free policy has not changed, and nationalities which were previously granted visa-free entry are still allowed to enter without a visa for travel purposes.

When purchasing travel insurance, please ensure that the plan covers COVID-19 treatment expenses.

Uzbekistan Quarantine Rules

Visitors are not currently subject to quarantine or self-isolation restrictions, provided they have a valid negative PCR test certificate, issued within the 48 hours before arrival.
