Do I need travel insurance?

Central Asian countries do not require travel insurance, but you can contact your insurance company in your home country if you like to have one. 

Most western countries can visit Central Asia without a visa and stay in the country for 30 days with no visa. Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan do not require visas from Western and European countries. Tajikistan visa can be obtained online for $30 per person paid online and the visa is issued within working days and you will get it in your email box. Turkmenistan visa can be obtained on spot at the border if you cross from Uzbekistan or at the airport of Ashgabat on arrival. The Visa fee is about $80 per person.
