Uzbekistan hoping to welcome international tourist after pandemic pause

Published on : Monday, February 22, 2021

Uzbekistan has forever depended on tourism and travel services for its economic growth. Nestled along the Silk road and with abundance of cultural heritage as well as historical monument, Uzbekistan experienced a constant surge in international tourist visit, but recently owing to pandemic and associated norms of lockdown and travel restriction, the tourism business suffered and so has the economy of the state. But now with the relaxation in travel regulations, the government is hopeful of the return of international tourists to the land of mystery and cultural heritage monuments.

The country this week introduced a ten-day visa free regime for tourists from China including its special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao, as well as Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman starting from March 1. Travellers willing to enter the land should provide a return air ticket or ticket to a third country.

Uzbekistan has also planned to open its largest gold-mining fields to foreign tourists, in a bid to develop geo-tourism in the resource-rich Central Asian nation. Kholida Ablaeva, a tour guide with 20 years of experience from the ancient city of Samarkand, has been waiting for the reopening of borders to allow foreign tourists to return to her hometown as they did before COVID-19.
