Hello guys, I am Pakistani and my forefathers (Syed Jalaluddin Bukhari Surkh Posh) migrated from Bukhara in Uzbekistan and his grave is now in Uch Shareef in Pakistan, and so we call ourself Bukhari, and Bukhari is a very famous and big community in Pakistan. I want to visit Bukhara where my forefathers came from. Also I know Samarkand and Tashkent are very famous cities in the world with a well known history in literature, education and religion. I really want to see these places and I need an…

Hotel Khiva Atabek may have been deserving of accolades in the past, but is not nearly as deserving
now. I had to ask them to change the sheets b/c they reeked from the previous occupant. But it was only later
at night that I found a bigger problem. Severe case of bed bugs. I am currently sporting bites to rival entire constellations.
On the bright side, my Uzbek vocabulary has just got a huge jump thanks to spending the morning searching for, explaining the problem and getting medication.

Visa. Again.

Hello:)

I am sure this has been asked hundreds of times before but here I go. I am a British Citizen applying for an Uzbek visa by post. I wonder if anyone has had any recent experience of this?

A few questions as the website is quite ambiguous.
1. Do I simply post my passport and relevant documents to the address given for the embassy and put FAO consular section?
2. On the list of what is required for a visa it says 'copy of all pages of the passport'. Does this literally mean EVERY passport…

apologies if this question has already been tackled, I couldn't find it.
I am currently unemployed, and was wondering whether this would be a problem in applying for an UZ visa (for some country it may be). Do you think is ok to simply state I am unemployed, of it is better to indicate the job I will start in October? In this case, it is more sensible to add, between parenthesis, 'from October' or not?
btw, I am Italian and don't need any LOI, so I assume I can write 'not required' on the…

Hi all! Hoping to get some advice on traveling from Uzbekistan to Kyrgyzstan.

We're a couple, flying to Tashkent in June and staying in the region for 17 days.

We're keen to get to Kyrgyzstan, but wondering about the practicalities of transport.

What is the best way to get from Tashkent to Kyrgyzstan overland, and how long do you think the journey would take?

In the dream scenario we could get to lake Song Köl, but I'm aware that may not be realistic in our time frame.

Reading good…

Hi.

If there's anyone who's traveling in Uzbekistan from 21st of July to 4th of August and would like to travel a bit / do some side trips together or basically just grab a beer, I'll be finding my way around at that time.

My plan is Tashkent - Samarkand - Bukhara - Khiva - Tashkent, pretty basic, but what can you do. Although I do have booked places to stay to apply for a visa, I'm pretty much open to suggestions. Anyway, e-mail me: kejcastis@yahoo.com

I'm 29/M from Zagreb, Croatia and…

4.Cost of travel…

Dear all,

Me and a friend of mine planned a trip to Uzbekistan in June (15-29). We were just informed that our flights with Ukraine International Air are cancelled, as apparently they cancelled this route. Unfortunately, flights the same day are very expensive, so we want to book flights a few days later (one decent option is 17-29 June).

We are wondering if this is a problem, visa-wise. Our visa is valid from 15-29 June. Is it a problem to arrive later (given that we will leave the country…

Hello there, I'm planning to visit the Kumtepa Bazaar on a Sunday but I'll be likely to arrive in Margilan around lunch time and after finding a room etc. I'll be likely to be at the market only in the afternoon. Is the bazaar open all day? it would be a real disappointment to arrive there and find it has shut down!
