On September 17, following the decision of the Special Republican Commission, Uzbekistan Airports announced the procedure for passengers to enter Uzbekistan by air.

In accordance with the rules, passengers planning flights to the Republic of Uzbekistan from the "yellow" and "red" zone countries must provide a certificate with a negative result of the PCR test for COVID-19 in English or Russian. The passengers must provide a certificate to the airline representative for the flight at check-in and it must be dated no earlier than 72 hours before departure. The passenger will be denied check-in if there is no negative test result.

Also, passengers arriving from the "red" and "yellow" zone countries must present a certificate with a negative result of the PCR test for COVID-19 to the passport control service. This requirement is mandatory for passengers arriving from the “red” zone countries. Passengers from the “yellow” zone countries, in turn, will have to submit samples for a PCR test at their own expense at the airport of arrival if they fail to present a certificate upon arrival.

At the same time, all passengers arriving from the "red" and "yellow" zone countries fill out a special questionnaire accepting mandatory 14-day home self-isolation.

Passengers arriving from the “green” zone countries (with the exception of passengers with symptoms of the disease) are not subject to quarantine requirements.

In addition, transit passengers must also comply with quarantine and sanitary requirements when entering Uzbekistan.

The Agency for sanitary and epidemiological welfare is charged with updating the zones on a weekly basis.
