Uzbekistan Offers $3000 To Travellers If They Get COVID-19 While In The Country

Uzbekistan has launched a campaign called Safe Travel Guaranteed, wherein if a visitor contracts the Coronavirus during their visit to the country, the country will issue them $3000 (nearly INR 2,26,747). The country is offering such a huge amount because it’s confident that no one will get the virus here. Apparently, it costs nearly $3000 to treat the virus in Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has also officially signed a decree on Tuesday.

Sophie Ibbotson, Uzbekistan’s tourism ambassador to the UK, said, “We want to reassure tourists they can come to Uzbekistan. The government is so confident that the new safety and hygiene measures being implemented across the tourism sector will protect tourists from COVID-19 that the president is prepared to put money where his mouth is: If you get COVID-19 on holiday in Uzbekistan, we will compensate you.”

What are the conditions of this new plan?

 1) To receive the $3000, one must explore the country with a local tour guide.

 2) The guides, hotels, and tourist sites must get a certification from the local government showing they are following all the virus safety guidelines.

 3) Uzbekistan is open to visitors from only low-risk zone countries, including China, Israel, Japan, and South Korea.

 4) Those coming from the UK and Europe should undergo a 14-day quarantine.

With a population of more than 33 million, Uzbekistan has currently recorded 7,228 Coronavirus positive cases and 20 deaths.
