Foreign travel advice



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

Take care if you travel to the Fergana Valley due to continuing tensions in the region.

There is an underlying threat from terrorism. See Terrorism.

Foreign nationals have been detained on arrival for possession of medicines that would not normally be problematic in other countries. You should always carry a doctor’s prescription with you if you’re travelling with prescription medicines. See Travelling with medicines

Most visits to Uzbekistan are trouble free.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
