Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Uzbekistan


Travel money for Uzbekistan


As mentioned above, the Uzbekistan Som is a closed currency. Which means that you will not be able to purchase the currency (UZS) before departure and will need to buy it upon arrival in Uzbekistan.

For these types of destinations, using a pre-paid travel card is a good solution. As no travel cards support loading closed currencies like the UZS you will incur currency conversion or foreign transaction fees if you use a travel money card in Uzbekistan.

However, using a pre-paid travel card is still a good idea as you can avoid ATM fees and also you can avoid using (and losing!) your main bank or debit/credit card.

Then compare your bank's exchange rates to several licensed FX providers exchange rate and fees to see how much you can save (we make that calculation easy here).

Get a better deal for foreign transfers to Uzbekistan

When sending money to Uzbekistan it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 4 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Uzbekistan Som amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted UZS amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Uzbekistan.

Use our Send to UZS calculator to compare the exchange rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Uzbekistan Som deposited into the recipient bank account and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
