Tashkent/UNI/Xinhua: Uzbekistan has decided to cancel the mandatory Covid-19 rapid test for all visitors upon arrival from Tuesday, according to the Uzbek Health Ministry.
"If visitors have a negative result of the PCR test for coronavirus infection taken within 48 hours, no express test is needed," said the country's special commission on Covid-19.
Earlier this month, Uzbekistan was tightening pandemic restrictions as the first case of the Omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus was confirmed in the country.
Starting from January 15, all visitors in the country were required to pass a rapid test at airports, train stations and border checkpoints in spite of their PCR test results. Uzbekistan has so far registered 216,186 Covid-19 cases and 1,545 related deaths.
