Foreign travel advice



You can be detained on arrival for the possession of certain medicines, including codeine. You should always carry a doctor’s prescription with you. See Travelling with medicines

Take care in areas bordering Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan. Uzbekistan’s borders are potential flashpoints and uncontrolled border areas may be land-mined. Borders are subject to closure without notice. See Local travel

There is an underlying threat from terrorism. See Terrorism.

Most visits to Uzbekistan are trouble free.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
