Salom va xush kelibsiz — warm greetings to our expat community in Uzbekistan! InterNations will be your home away from home as you plan a move to Uzbekistan, or indeed, if you've already relocated to the country. Here on the platform you can interact with fellow expats in Central Asia, and Uzbekistan itself. It is likely that you already have many questions about life in Uzbekistan, "does the Uzbek population know much English or French?", "what is the cost of living?", or "will my friends and family be able to visit without a visa?", for example. You can find advice, support, and even friendship on InterNations!
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Egypt or Kuwait.

A large percentage of the expat population in Uzbekistan live in the capital Tashkent, which is home to most of the administrative centers for foreign organizations, embassies, and companies concerned with exploring natural resources in the area. While not the capital city, Samarkand is known as a jewel in the Silk Road, the age-old trade route that has bridged Europe with the Far East for generations. During their free time, expats can walk the same streets once pounded by the soldiers of Alexander the Great, as they visit the many historical sites and peruse the lively market places.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Switzerland or Japan, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
To make the decision to move to a foreign land, it is likely you are strong-minded, with a sense of adventure. However, it is only human to feel a sense of doubt before stepping into the unknown. Guided by our principles of respectful, courteous behavior, InterNations is there for you as an information resource, sounding board, and meeting place for you and your fellow expats in Uzbekistan. While some may find the InterNations network more helpful in the process of moving, others have guidance during this planning period, but are at a loose end once they arrive. That's why we also offer a wide range of events and groups which you can join, no matter what your hobby or interest. Whichever is true in your case, our platform is designed especially for you. It is true in life that the best person to ask is often someone that has prior experience, and that is what has made InterNations a growing network of expats throughout the world.
