Travel Update: Kyrgyzstan

Travel Alert

Top officials are keeping measures imposed to limit the spread of COVID-19 as of July 7. International flights are operating as scheduled. However, anyone entering Kyrgyzstan by air must produce proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival. Travelers without such proof will be tested at the border; those who test positive will be placed in a government quarantine facility for up to 14 days. Travelers entering the country through land border checkpoints are also required to produce a negative test certificate. Diplomats, international transport crews, freight drivers, and infants are exempt from this requirement.

Domestic inter-regional transport services, including flights between Bishkek and Osh, are operating reduced services, though passengers must undergo health screenings before boarding. Most businesses are operating subject to social distancing requirements; entertainment establishments in Bishkek, including bars and restaurants, must close between 23:00- 07:00. Protective masks are mandatory, and social distancing must be practiced in all establishments. Authorities continue to advise against nonessential travel, and all persons leaving their accommodations must carry a contact-tracing form.

Police roadblocks, including health checks, may be established on intercity and regional roads to identify and contain suspected cases. Public gatherings are prohibited. Some business premises require visitors to wear facemasks.

Authorities could reimpose, extend, further ease, or otherwise amend any restrictions with little-to-no notice depending on disease activity over the coming weeks.
