Registration in Uzbekistan

Русская версия   Uzbekistan is a country very pleasant for a traveller in different ways: food, people, architecture, nature, cheap and developed (if compared to the rest of Central Asia) transport. There is only one trouble there, killing all the fun. The Soviet legacy – registration – is a problem for both tourists and locals. Everyone coming to Uzbekistan must register in some accomodation within three days and have this registration for every day of the stay. Locals travelling from one region to another also must register. Registration is the concentration of bereaucracy; because of it, grandchildren cannot visit their grandparents in summer, and the tourists are sometimes deported from the country because they do not have a registration for just one of the days. Here we suggest several ways which will hopefully help you not only to avoid deportation, but also achieve valuable cultural experience in coping with bereaucracy.
