Uzbekistan - Level 4: Do Not Travel
Do not travel to Uzbekistan due to COVID-19.
Uzbekistan gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. While the country has undergone significant change since then, its progress towards democratic and economic reform has been halting and uneven.

Tourist facilities in these areas are typically below Western standards, and many goods and services remain difficult to find on a regular basis.
