According to the chief medical officer in transport of the Kazakh Healthcare Ministry, Sadvakas Baigabulov, Kazakhstan resumes international flights with 11 countries, including Uzbekistan, reports KazTAG.
“Kazakhstan has expanded the list of countries of the first and second categories with which it resumes flights. The countries that were added to the first category are Hungary, India, the Czech Republic, Germany and Malaysia. There are no restrictions for passengers arriving from the countries of the first category. Earlier, PRC, South Korea, Japan, Georgia and Thailand were also included in this category,” Baigabulov said at the Friday briefing.
He also noted that six countries had been added to the second category.
“The countries of the second category now also include Egypt, Ukraine, Poland, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. Previously, there was air communication only with Turkey from the second category. The passengers arriving from these countries are supposed to have a certificate of passing a PCR test. Those without such a certificate are handed a notification list and are subject to passing a PCR test within 48 hours or self-isolating for 14 days upon arrival,” he said.
Baigabulov reminds that regular flights to countries that are not in the first and second categories are still prohibited.
