REF: STATE 101293 
 
¶1.  Embassy Tashkent warmly welcomes and grants country 
clearance to House Committee on Foreign Affairs Staff Members 
Manpreet Singh Anand, Melissa Adamson, Gene Gurevich and 
Amanda Sloat for the proposed visit to Tashkent August 22. 
Post will meet Staffdel at the airport and provide 
transportation to and from the Embassy for a briefing with 
the Charge d'Affaires and other relevant Embassy officials. 
The control officer for your visit will be Political Officer 
Richard Fitzmaurice, office telephone number (998 71) 
120-5450, cellular telephone (998 90) 370-0427, email 
address: FitzmauriceRG@state.gov. 
 
¶2.  Visa:  All visitors to Uzbekistan regardless of length of 
stay and purpose of visit must obtain an Uzbek visa. 
Travelers are strongly advised to apply for Uzbek visas at 
least one month prior to their expected travel.  Travelers 
should check the details of their visa validity dates and 
number of entries issued.  Travelers not holding diplomatic 
passports must complete two currency forms prior to entering 
Tashkent customs control. The second form must be kept in 
their possession until departure from Uzbekistan. 
 
¶4.  Climate/dress: During the summer period the weather 
conditions in Uzbekistan are hot and dry.  Temperatures 
typically range between 90 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Tashkent is a cosmopolitan city where most modern dress is 
accepted.  However, dress in places like markets, the old 
part of Tashkent, and outside of Tashkent is more 
conservative.  Standard business dress is the attire during 
working hours. 
 
¶5.  Medical Assistance:  The post has a small Health Unit 
with a Foreign Service Health Practitioner.  Stocks of 
medication are not extensive; therefore, travelers should 
carry any non-prescription and prescription medicines for 
which they anticipate a need.  For medical emergencies, 
visitors are sometimes referred to the Tashkent International 
Medical Clinic (TIMC) for assistance.  The address is 38 
Sarikulskaya Street, tel.: (998 71) 191-0142, 191-0726, and 
fax: 191-2246. Transactions at that facility are in dollars 
and must be paid at the time of the visit. TIMC is unable to 
bill your insurance company.  If you have a medical 
condition(s) that require frequent follow-up or may 
necessitate emergency care, be aware that medical facilities 
are very limited and contact post prior to finalizing your 
travel.
