How to get to Uzbekistan?

Getting to Uzbekistan is relatively easy, with several options available depending on your location. Here are some common ways to get to Uzbekistan:

By Air: The most common way to travel to Uzbekistan is by air. The country has several international airports, with the most prominent being Tashkent International Airport (TAS). Tashkent airport is well-connected to major cities around the world, with airlines such as Uzbekistan Airways and international carriers offering regular flights to and from destinations in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

By Train: Uzbekistan is connected to neighboring countries by rail, with train services operating to and from cities like Moscow, Almaty, and Tashkent. The Uzbekistan Railways network offers both domestic and international train services, providing a scenic and comfortable way to travel to the country.

By Road: Traveling to Uzbekistan by road is possible, although it may be more challenging compared to other methods. The country shares borders with several countries, including Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan, allowing for overland travel by car or bus. However, border crossings and road conditions can vary, so it’s advisable to check the latest travel information before embarking on a road trip to Uzbekistan.

Visa Requirements: Before traveling to Uzbekistan, it’s important to check the visa requirements for your country. Many nationalities require a visa to enter Uzbekistan, which can usually be obtained from the Uzbekistan embassy or consulate in your country or upon arrival at certain airports and border crossings.

Overall, getting to Uzbekistan is relatively straightforward, with several options available depending on your preferences and starting location. Whether you choose to fly, take the train, or travel by road, Uzbekistan’s rich history, culture, and hospitality await you upon arrival.

Day 1: Arrival in Tashkent

Tashkent is a capital of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the most populated city in Central Asia, a political, economic, cultural and scientific center of the country.

I landed at Tashkent International Airport at 7:10 PM and no visa was needed for Australian passport. Pls check this online for your passport prior to flying as things could change anytime.

Which sim cards to buy in Uzbekistan?

Upon exiting the arrival hall, I purchased a sim card to stay connected during my trip. I bought and recommend Beeline and paid 80K UZ which came with 25 GB data.

  • Ucell: Known for good coverage and reliable service across Uzbekistan. They offer tourist packages with a balance of data and local minutes.
  • Beeline: Provides competitive data packages and excellent service in urban areas. Ideal for those needing high-speed internet.
  • Uzmobile: State-owned operator with extensive coverage and reasonable rates. Suitable for both local and international calls.

How to purchase and activate?

  • Passport: You’ll need to present your passport when purchasing a SIM card.
  • Activation: The SIM card will be activated upon purchase, and you may need assistance from the store staff to set up the data plan.
  • Top-Up: You can easily top up your SIM card at various kiosks, convenience stores, and online through the provider’s website.
  • Customer Service: Most major providers have English-speaking customer service to assist with any issues.
  • Getting Online: After activating my sim card, I used the Yandex app to order a taxi to my accommodation. Yandex taxi to hotel was 25K and dinner was 50K.

How was internet in Uzbekistan?

To my surprise, internet connectivity in Uzbekistan was pretty consistent around 20 mbps in all 3 citites comparing to 1.4 mbps in Tajikistan. Locals advised it has been improving steadily in recent years with increasing access to high-speed internet in urban areas. Here’s an overview of the internet situation in Uzbekistan:

  1. Urban Areas: In major cities like Tashkent, Samarkand, and Bukhara, internet connectivity is generally reliable, with access to high-speed broadband and 4G mobile networks. Many hotels, cafes, and restaurants offer free Wi-Fi to customers, and internet cafes are also available for those who need access to computers and internet services.
  2. Rural Areas: Internet access in rural areas of Uzbekistan may be less reliable and slower compared to urban areas tho. While efforts are being made to expand internet infrastructure to rural regions, access to high-speed internet may still be limited in some remote areas.
  3. Mobile Internet: Mobile internet usage is widespread in Uzbekistan, with several mobile network operators offering 3G and 4G services across the country. SIM cards and prepaid mobile data packages are readily available for purchase, making it easy for travelers to stay connected while exploring Uzbekistan.
  4. Censorship: It’s worth noting that Uzbekistan has been known to censor certain websites and social media platforms in the past. However, access to most popular websites and social media platforms is generally available, though occasional restrictions or slowdowns may occur.

Where to change currency/withdraw money?

In Uzbekistan, the local currency is the Uzbekistani som (UZS). You can exchange currency at banks, such as the National Bank of Uzbekistan or other commercial banks, as well as at currency exchange offices (known as “Obmen Valyuty” in Uzbek).

These exchange offices are located throughout the country, including in major cities like Tashkent, Bukhara, and Samarkand. Currency exchange services are also available at hotels, major markets, and transportation hubs like airports and train stations.

There are ATMs on arrival at the airport and in big shopping malls but I recommend to bring USD and exchanging it there as you need.

It’s advisable to compare exchange rates and fees at different locations to get the best deal, and to exchange money at official exchange offices or banks to avoid counterfeit currency.
