Before COVID-19, Uzbekistan was one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations. And with the new initiative announced by the government, it’s likely that it will continue to climb to the top of travellers’ to-visit lists.
On 19 June, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev outlined an innovative plan for reopening the country to tourism, starting this month. any foreign tourist visiting Uzbekistan on a group tour with a local tour operator will be protected by a national guarantee. In the unlikely event that they become infected with COVID-19 during their stay, the tourist will receive US$3,000 in financial compensation from Uzbekistan’s Anti-Crisis Fund. The sum is equivalent to the estimated cost of medical care Uzbekistan’s citizens would receive for free if they became infected. https://www.bradtguides.com/uzbekistan-restarting-tourism/
