      I have booked my travel with an Indian travel website and they have only taken scan copy of passport and passport size photograph. They mentioned that e-visa will be issued at the airport. Is this the right process?? Do one get a call from the embassy?

      Hi @all, will be heading to Uzbekistan on Monday. It's gonna be an organized tour around the country. I'm a little bit unsure on what to pack. I guess it will be hot. Do I have to wear longer trousers everywhere or is it only necessery in mosques to cover legs and shoulders? Your answer will be highly appreciated - and I would be happy for any other tip for what to pack. Thanks a lot in advance.

    • Travelling alone in Uzbekistan

      Uzbekistan Feb 7, 2016 at 6:26 AM

      Hi All,
      I'm trying to plan a trip alone in Uzbekistan during May/June. I'm 34yo male. I have the idea to move from Tashkent to Khiva or backwards. From Italy, it is pretty easy to arrive in Tashkent as I can fly with Turkish or Aeroflot. But I have a lot of doubts about how to travel internally, especially between Samarkand and Urgench. I know there are internal flights, but I read a lot of bad reports about internal flight in Uzbekistan, starting from the problem of daily overbooking and fake tickets.
      Moreover, even if I could take a plane from Tashkent to Urgench, I would like to go back travelling using some form of public transportation to save money and see the locals.

      Any ideas or suggestions?

    • First time travelling to Uzbekistan, Samarkand. Is there a street called Saasi?

      Samarkand Nov 27, 2015 at 12:56 PM

      Hi, I'm travelling to Samarkand, Uzbekistan next month from the 18th December to 6th January. I will be there for 19 days. It's my first time going to Uzbekistan. I'm going there to visit my girlfriend as a tragedy happened to her life recently. A fire broke out in her house and her grandmother died as she couldn't be rescued in time. This happened all at night when everyone in her family was sleeping. I feel horrible and I can't imagine the pain she is going through right now. I wish I'm there for her right now. I'm sorting out my visa at the moment and just booked my flight. I plan to give her a surprise visit, to be there to support her and her family and celebrate Christmas and New Year with them.

      I have the address of my girlfriend's house but I can't seem to find it on Google Map. She is from Samarkand and the street name is called Saasi but I can't seem to find or heard of any street names is Samarkand called Saasi.

      My Ukrainian friend also helped me to post on a Samarkand forum but the people there don't seem to know this street name.

      I'd appreciate if there are any Uzbeks here or anyone who have travelled to Samarkand to give me more information about the city so I can plan my trip as I'll be going there all alone without any clue.

    • Mountain hike

      Uzbekistan Jun 1, 2013 at 2:40 PM

      Hi! We will be going to Uzbekistan in only a few weeks for 14 days. We have not booked much in advance but have started to do some research. Besides visting Boukhara and Samarkand, we would like to do a mountain trek, ideally 3-4 days (3 nights in huts or tents). But it seems that this is difficult mostly due to the registration policy. Has anyone done a mountain hike? Does anyone know how this registration problem can be dealt with? Any recommendations of a guide/tour company or even a specific tour? Many thanks!

      Visa on arrival in Tashkent Airport?

      Uzbekistan May 5, 2013 at 12:09 PM

      I have read that it is possible to get a visa on arrival in the airport, if you don´t have an embassy of Uzbekistan in your country of residence and if you have the Letter of invitation.

      Since I don´t have a embassy here in Denmark,I am very interested in this option, but I don't want to be rejected in the airport so I want to know if anybody has done this and how it worked out?
