2. This procedure applies to the departure of citizens of the Republic of Uzbekistan to foreign countries, with the exception of CIS member countries, where departure does not require registration of exit documents.

3. The passport of a citizen of the Republic of Uzbekistan required to travel abroad is issued by the internal affairs bodies in accordance with the regulations on the passport system in the Republic of Uzbekistan.

1. Citizens of the Republic of Uzbekistan intending to travel abroad apply to the internal affairs bodies at their place of residence with a completed application form of the prescribed form and presentation of a passport of a citizen of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

2. The internal affairs bodies consider the application form of a citizen within 15 days and paste a sticker of a permit entry into his passport, which is valid for two years for temporary travel abroad. During the specified period, citizens can travel abroad repeatedly without contacting the internal affairs bodies for registration of departure. In the absence of a passport of a citizen of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the period for issuing a passport and registering a trip abroad should not exceed 15 days.
Persons traveling abroad for permanent residence, the internal affairs bodies paste a sticker of a permit entry for traveling abroad for permanent residence on the page provided for visas in the passport without specifying the validity period. The period of consideration of documents for persons traveling abroad for permanent residence can be extended up to 30 days.
In order to obtain a visa of a foreign state, departing citizens apply to the diplomatic and consular missions of the respective states.

Going on a trip, there are often questions related to the rules of baggage transportation on the plane. What is the maximum allowable weight? What can and cannot be carried in a suitcase? In this article you will find answers to these and other questions.

It is necessary to distinguish between such concepts as luggage and hand luggage. If we are talking about luggage, then we always mean those things that you hand over to the luggage compartment at check-in. Hand luggage — a bag that you take with you to the cabin of the aircraft is not taken into account in the weight of luggage and its own standards apply to it.

When choosing a suitcase or bag, two restrictions should be kept in mind: weight and dimensions.

The permissible weight of luggage on the plane.

Baggage allowance on the plane depends on the airline and the direction of flight. There are 2 systems in the world:

1. The weight system is used on most flights in the CIS, Asia and some European airlines.

In most cases, the following free baggage allowance is established:

• 20 kg per passenger in economy class.

• 30 kg per passenger in business class.

• 10 kg per child up to 2 years old.

If you are a member of the airline’s bonus program, then your baggage weight can be increased by 10 — 20 kg.
The weight system limits only the weight of luggage, not the number of seats, i.e. You can take 2 bags of 10 kg. In addition, this system allows you to combine the luggage of several passengers who are traveling together. For example, you are traveling with a family of two and you have one suitcase weighing 30 kg for two. The maximum weight of a suitcase in this case should be no more than 32 kg (for some airlines no more than 30 kg).
Each kilogram of excess weight is paid according to the airline’s tariffs. The attitude to the preponderance of carriers is different, some will close their eyes to an extra kilogram or two, others will not.
For some destinations, there are increased baggage weight standards, so when purchasing a ticket, be sure to specify which standards are valid for your specific route. As a rule, this information is indicated on your itinerary receipt, if it is not there, it is better to clarify the baggage allowance on the airline’s website.
Every year more and more carriers abandon the weight system and switch to the number of seats system.

2. The number of seats system is the baggage allowance for the number of seats, applied on all flights to /from the USA, Canada, South and Central America.

According to the system of the number of seats, the passenger has the right to spend free of charge:

• In economy class — 1 piece of luggage weighing no more than 23 kg (On routes to / from the USA and Canada, most often 2 seats of 23 kg each).

• In business class — 2 pieces of luggage, weighing no more than 32 kg each.

Participants of the airline’s bonus program are allowed to carry an additional 1 or 2 pieces of luggage, depending on the level of participation.

Consider an example:

You are allowed to take 2 pieces of luggage with you, weighing up to 23 kg each. You put things in two suitcases: one weighing 15 kg and the second weighing 30 kg. The logic of the passenger, as a rule, is simple — 23 + 23 = 46, but it’s not like that. A suitcase that weighs 15 kg will go as 1 piece of luggage, and the second, weighing 30 kg, as the second with a preponderance. The preponderance in this case will be 7 kg, for which you will have to pay.

The situation is similar in cases when you are flying together or as a family and decided to put all your things in one suitcase. Remember, with the system of the number of seats, the weight of luggage is not summed up.

Permissible dimensions of luggage on the plane

The maximum baggage size also most often depends on the system of norms. If there is a system of the number of seats on your flight, then the sum of the three dimensions (width + length + height) of the suitcase should not exceed 158 cm. In the case of a weighing system, you can carry a suitcase with dimensions up to 203 cm in the sum of three dimensions.

Rules for carrying oversized baggage on an airplane

If your luggage does not meet the permissible standards for weight or dimensions, then it can be issued as oversized luggage.

Oversized luggage can include:

• musical instruments

• sports equipment, for example, snowboard or downhill skiing

• household appliances: televisions, refrigerators, etc.

• any other luggage whose weight exceeds 32 kg or dimensions in the sum of three dimensions are more than 203 cm.

Such baggage can be transported by plane only by prior agreement with the carriers. To do this, you need to contact the support service of the airline or agency where you bought the ticket.

Please note that the possibility of transporting such baggage depends on the type of aircraft. If it does not provide a place for such baggage or loading hatches do not allow loading/unloading, then your baggage will not be accepted for transportation.

Oversized baggage is not included in the free baggage allowance and is always paid separately at the rates for excess baggage. Only some airlines have exceptions for transporting ski equipment in winter.

What is forbidden to carry in luggage?

According to the baggage rules of most airlines in the world, the following are prohibited for carriage on an airplane:

• explosives and illuminating substances (gunpowder, cartridges, including for gas and hunting weapons, pyrotechnics (firecrackers, sparklers), etc.)

• Compressed and liquefied gases. Including gas canisters filled with nerve and tear effects.

• Flammable liquids (acetone, gasoline)

• Flammable solids.

• Oxidizing substances and organic peroxides.

• Toxic substances.

• Radioactive materials.

• Caustic and corrosive substances (hydrochloric, sulfuric, nitric acids)

• Toxic and toxic substances in liquid or solid state, packed in any container (brake fluid, ethylene glycol, mercury, etc.)

• Weapons (pistols, revolvers, rifles, carbines and other firearms, gas, pneumatic weapons, electric shock devices), if there are no special containers on the aircraft for transporting weapons or the passenger does not have the appropriate permits.

• Other dangerous substances, objects that can be used as a weapon of attack on passengers, the crew of an aircraft, as well as posing a threat to the flight of an aircraft.

Baggage loss at the airport

If luggage is missing at the airport, you need to inform the representatives of the baggage tracing service of the airline that made the flight without leaving the arrival area. Usually a written request is made to search for luggage, while you need to have a ticket with a baggage pass and an identity card. The passenger is issued a special certificate indicating the case number, according to which it is possible to track the progress of the baggage search on the website of some airlines.

Baggage search is carried out within 21 days, after which the passenger can demand compensation from the airline for the loss of baggage — its amount according to International Agreements is $ 20 per 1 kg of baggage.

In case of damage to luggage or loss of individual items from it, you should also contact the airline staff, having a ticket with a baggage pass in your hands. The deadline for filing an application for damage or theft of things is 7 days. Passengers will be required to describe the missing items, but the established amount of compensation in this case is the same mentioned $ 20 per kilogram. However, if the receipts for the missing items have been preserved, then it is quite possible to count on a partial or full refund of their value. The decision on compensation for damage to baggage remains in the competence of the airline.

It is best to simply insure your luggage when transporting really valuable things. Also, when handing over luggage at the airport, you can declare the high cost of the things in it, while paying an additional fee. In case of theft of items, the airline will have to pay their full cost.

Duty Free and Tax Free: profitable shopping

For many travelers, an invariable part of tourism is visiting Duty Free shops at airports, seaports, passenger liners and land border crossings. Duty Free is a system of duty-free, that is, tax-free, trade. Of course, taxes increase the cost of goods, and the absence of duties is an extremely profitable thing for buyers.

Duty Free stores vary greatly from country to country: some are small shops with souvenirs, alcohol and tobacco products, cosmetics and perfumes, and some are chic boutiques with expensive brands.

In addition to Duty Free, travelers can use the Tax Free service, which implies the possibility to refund VAT after making purchases.

Duty Free at airports and on board the plane
The first Duty Free store appeared at Shannon Airport in Ireland in 1947. It was created for passengers of transatlantic flights traveling between Europe and North America, and forced to make a transit landing in Ireland.

The duty-free shop on neutral territory enjoyed unprecedented success, and soon similar shops began to open all over the world.

As a rule, Duty Free stores are located in the departure zones, but over the years there is an increasing tendency to bring them also to the arrival zones. This, you will agree, is very convenient – because then you will not have to carry numerous bags with you during the flight.

Now Duty Free stores exist in arrival zones at airports in the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Iceland, Kenya, India, Sri Lanka.

If you know that there are good opportunities for duty-free shopping at the airport of your country of residence, try not to spend all your money during your vacation – you will surely regret it if you find yourself in the chic Duty-Free zones of Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong or Barcelona.
By the way, the largest Duty Free store in Europe is located at Gardermoen Airport, in Oslo.
It makes sense to consult with your tour operator about what exactly is the best way to spend money at the airport. Each country has its own subtleties regarding the export of certain things.

So, for example, on the island of Rhodes there is a limit on the export of olive oil, which, by the way, is very popular with tourists, since Greece is famous for the high quality of this product. And these restrictions do not apply to the purchase of olive oil in Duty Free Rhodes – you buy as much as you want and carry it in your hand luggage.

When paying for goods, you will be asked to present your boarding pass, so do not leave it with your companions while shopping at the airport. You can pay, as a rule, in the currency of the country where the airport is located, dollars, euros, as well as traveler’s checks and credit cards.

At the same time, if the price is in euros, and you pay, for example, in rubles, you will inevitably lose when recalculating. The store chooses a favorable, high, exchange rate.

The plane itself is also a Duty Free zone.

Shopping on board is a great way to “kill time” on the way and distract from the stress associated with the flight. The prices of goods on board the aircraft are often lower than the prices in Duty Free stores at airports, because in this case there are no expenses for renting premises and salaries for sellers.

Pros and cons of Duty Free Shopping
– Some items are sold exclusively in Duty Free stores. For example, many luxury cosmetic brands produce so-called “travel sets” (from the English travelset) specifically for Duty Free stores at airports – these are cosmetics in small volumes, convenient for travelers.

Or fragrances in small bottles – collections of miniatures. In the shops of the city, you simply will not find goods in this format. And in the catalog of goods on board the plane you will find rare models of watches and jewelry.

– It is most profitable to buy alcoholic beverages in Duty Free – they are twice cheaper there than in regular stores.

– Another undoubted plus of Duty Free is the guarantee of authenticity of products. The opportunity to buy a fake is practically excluded.

– It is known that shopping, especially for women, is a great opportunity to unwind and relieve stress. Before the flight, this is relevant for many – aerophobia, to one degree or another, is characteristic of most people. And you don’t even have to make purchases – it’s enough to spray perfume from the tester on your wrist – and it will calm you down the whole flight.

– Unfortunately, the absence of tax duties does not mean that you will buy the goods at the lowest possible price. In different Duty Free, prices for the same products may vary.

Stores may belong to different owners and be competitors. By the way, the most expensive duty-free shops in Europe are London Heathrow and Berlin Schonefeld.

– Passengers of flights with multiple transfers may have problems with the purchased goods in the Duty Free of the previous transit, especially with alcohol and perfumes. The goods may be confiscated if the limit for carrying liquids in hand luggage is exceeded.

And, in any case, the purchased goods must be transported in a sealed Duty Free package of the store with a receipt inside.

Duty Free-zones outside airports
Perhaps many will be surprised by the fact that Duty Free zones exist not only at airports, but also within different countries. For example, Andorra, a dwarf state located between France and Italy, is entirely a Duty Free zone.

Another European place of duty-free trade is the Livigno ski resort, located in Lombardy, near the border with Austria and Switzerland. It is quite difficult to get to this area and the local population has suffered from poverty for many years.
By abolishing the trade tax, the state stimulated people to live in this area and increased the influx of tourists.

In Japan, any buyer whose passport indicates that he has been in the land of the rising sun for at least 6 months can make purchases in Duty Free stores, which are located in some major shopping areas of Tokyo and industrial centers.
The King Power chain of stores in Thailand provides an opportunity to buy tax-free goods while still in the country. Purchases will be delivered separately to the airport, and you will be able to receive them before departure.

VAT on many purchases can also be refunded in the departure area of the airport.

Duty Free is often placed at the intersection of the land borders of countries, for example, on the border of Israel and Egypt or Romania and Bulgaria. However, the assortment of such shops is much more modest than what we meet at airports.

Duty Free is sometimes located in completely unusual places, for example, in a tunnel under the English Channel. Another curiosity is the largest AKA DUTY FREE store in North Africa, located in Hurghada, whose design is made in the shape of a pyramid.

Tax Free, or VAT Refund
Many tourists do not know that upon arrival home they can refund the amount of VAT on purchases made abroad. Tax free, tax-free (Eng. without fees) – a system for refunding the amount of value added tax (VAT). It is possible to return up to 7 to 20% of the cost of purchases.

There are several large companies that provide services for the return of funds spent on taxes. The largest of them, founded in 1980 in Sweden, is the Global Refund Group, now better known as Global Blue.

Now this company provides services in 37 countries. Stores (and there are about 270,000 of them around the world) that work with the Global Blue system are easily identified by the blue logo. You can also find out their location in advance on the official website of the company.

In addition to European countries, Global Blue provides its services in Argentina, Australia, Korea, Lebanon, Morocco, Singapore.
There are other companies offering similar services, for example, Premier Tax Free (The Fintrax Group company), headquartered in Ireland. The company has been in existence since 1985.

This system works in more than 21 countries of the world: in addition to the EU countries, these are Canada, Jordan and Singapore. Among the partners of Premier Tax Free are such companies as Infinitif, La Perla, EpiCentre and others. More information about points of sale can be found on the website .

The easiest way to find out if the Tax Free system works in the country where you are going is to type Tax Free + the name of the country in the search engine. Or, while already abroad, look for an icon on the doors of stores that says Tax Free Shopping.

Having made a purchase in a participating store of the Tax Free Refund system, remember that at customs you will have to present your purchases in a packed form, with labels. So you will not be able to use new things during your vacation, unless, of course, you plan to return the money spent on taxes.

Another important point: each country may have its own restrictions on the time elapsed from the moment of purchase to receipt of the stamp at customs.

It makes sense to find out this question before making a purchase. And, as a rule, for a VAT refund, a purchase must be made in the amount of at least 40 euros.

You can get money using the Tax Free system both at the airport before departure and at special Tax Free points.

Documents that will need to be submitted to the bank:

– Tax Refund forms filled out in the store with your passport data, a list of purchases, their cost and the amount of tax to be refunded. It can also be a personalized check for a Global Blue Cheque tax refund.
The forms must be stamped at customs upon presentation of purchases. At international airports, VAT refund points can be found by the labels “Cash Refund”, “VAT/Detax” or “VAT Refund”;

– receipts for purchases (keep them together with the forms);

– international passport;

– a citizen’s passport (or other identity document).
