New Regulations in Central Asia and Caucasus travel for Covid-19

beenherefor3000yearsWe are all still dreaming about traveling again... The good news is that Central Asia and Caucasus governments have created policies to take care of your health when countries open their borders to international visitors again. Combined with intel from our local travel colleagues and guides, we’re creating plans to keep our travelers safe and healthy as we plan for the future.

 Uzbekistan has reinstated international flights for business travelers and family/residents between countries with stable coronavirus situations. Georgia plans to reopen its borders July 1st, Armenia from July 15th. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for more good news!

Hotels and our Silk Road Treasure Tours team throughout the Caucasus are complying with international measures and deploying their own protocols to combat and prevent the spread of Covid-19. Directives for thermal screening, cleaning and disinfection, distancing regulations, natural ventilation and accessible alcohol hand sanitizers are in place. Clearly posted information in a variety of languages will greet us. Worldwide hotel groups have instituted similar policies for guests’ well-being, which you can find posted on their websites. You’ll find updated reservation policies, and digital check-ins. Our Silk Road destinations have  plenty of lesser-known natural attractions, allowing for as much social distancing as you want.

Central Asia and Caucasus governments and tour companies have protocols for tour guides and clients, including numbers of passengers in vehicles, the use of PPE (personal protective equipment), procedures for restaurants and tourist sites everywhere. PPE supplies will be made available for our clients. We will be closely monitoring all staff training, and all sites and facilities on our itineraries.  In a region known for its food and hospitality, the Caucasus can’t wait for visitors again! With fabulous seasonal weather throughout the region, al fresco dining will be the norm. Our small group and private tours policies work in your favor here! Our attention to sustainability allows us to support small luxury and boutique hotels, local restaurants, and artisans.

Most Silk Road countries opening their borders will require a medical certificate indicating a negative Covid-19 screening within 72 hours of arrival from a single destination where you have been for at least 14-days.  Meanwhile, your trusted experts at Silk Road Treasure Tours will keep looking for ways to give you your best travel experience... ever!  #centralasiatravel #caucasustravel
