Uzbekistan Partially Opens Borders

Sunday 14 June 2020

TASHKENT (Xinhua) — Uzbekistan will open its borders on Monday for people of certain categories and resume some international flights, the country’s special commission to combat coronavirus said on Sunday.

Diplomats and their family members, representatives and specialists of foreign companies, students, and those seeking medical treatment can enter or leave Uzbekistan, the commission said.

Uzbekistan will mark the inbound flights with red, yellow and green, according to the level of severity of the country-of-departure’s epidemic situation, it said. Visitors with the green flights, for example those from Japan, South Korea, China and Israel will not be placed under a 14-day quarantine upon arrival, according to the commission. Passengers with the yellow flights — from the EU countries, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore — will be put under home quarantine. Finally, passengers on red flights — those from the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia and other Commonwealth of Independent States countries — will be put under a 14-day quarantine.

So far, Uzbekistan has confirmed 4,966 COVID-19 cases, with 19 deaths and 3,910 recoveries.
