PCR test requirement for Uzbekistan

In order to be allowed to the airplane or train, your negative PCR test must be done no more than 72 hours before your check-in to your flight or train. However, it would be ideal, if it is not more than 72 hours by the time that you arrive in Uzbekistan (not officially required). Logically, the people showing any symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to board.

You might need a negative PCR test before departing Uzbekistan. There is a possibility to get a PCR test in the airport of Tashkent. Usually, the PCR test center of the Tashkent airport gives the result quite fast but we recommend you plan your PCR test earlier in the city in order to avoid possible crowds taking the test.
