  2. On August 20, the Kyrgyz National News Agency reported that the the following exceptions were added to the entry ban on citizens of foreign states and stateless persons: (1) students in higher educational institutions of the Kyrgyz Republic; (2) holders of permanent residence permits in the Kyrgyz Republic; (3) travellers entering for treatment to medical institutions in the Kyrgyz Republic; (4) travellers going to funerals of close relatives.
  3. For clarity, be aware that the U.S. Embassy in The Kyrgyz Republic cautions: "Please note that the entry ban on U.S. citizen travelers remains in place. Despite some exceptions to the ban announced by the Kyrgyz government..., even travelers who meet one of the exceptions have been denied entry and deported. Meeting one of the exceptions is not a guarantee that you will be permitted entry. U.S. citizen travelers should not plan to travel to the Kyrgyz Republic at this time as you are likely to be denied entry.".
  4. Starting August 7, international regular flights resumed. Initially only flights to/from Turkey and the United Arab Emirates are permitted.
