Uzbek reality, although small steps moving towards wider normality is still full of surprises and a number of absurdities, and it is one of the main obligation of registration. As, the adventures associated with it variety to my stay in Uzbekistan and kept us forget about ourselves continuously and as, I have a lot of questions about this topic I devote a separate entry with his practical species - can someone come in handy.
What in general is the obligation of registration / registration?
This is a record of law constituting the, that a foreigner residing in Uzbekistan in the destination should every night spend (or check in / sign up) hotel / hostel. Further, as in China or Burma must be the hotel, which is licensed to accept foreigners, because many locals can only sleep (Price for foreigners will be roughly twice). Theoretically, therefore, different coachsurfingi fall and stay with people or in a tent in the proverbial bushes. Theoretically, because the interpretation of the above. provision for, moving the bike is already more leniently - due to the fact, However, not everywhere with such hotels are, You can check in (or sleep in the hostel / hotel) every third night. However, it looks like, that this is not only a right whispered written, Thus, the final interpretation depends on the person sitting at the front desk.
Places, where you really should every night without exception sign up at the hotel is the Fergana valley and the country's capital - Tashkent and Tashkent region. Fergana Valley is a special place under the supervision of the police and repeatedly passing through the check - pointy written down my passport data.
After spending the nights we will issue registration slips just called. I heard, that not everyone does it automatically, in my case it did - but you can always ask for it. Keep an eye on him like a hawk, without it can be variously.
What danger does not have a check in or interruption of their continuity (more than 3 nights spent outside the hotel)?
Firstly, not admitted to the next hotel.. Frequently at the hotel will be asked to slips of the last Accommodation. When you do not have it, or if you do not have continuity accommodation, or break in is greater than noclegach 3 night is almost 100% warranty, the hotel / hostel refuses to accept.
Secondly, when leaving border guards can check your hotel registrations. When you do not have appropriate, you risk punishment 1000 USD and threatened the same punishment entity, which exhibited an invitation to you. While the hotel will welcome you in spite of, say, 4 day break continuity accommodation, Jemuel theses threatened kara 1000 USD and withdrawal of licenses. Therefore hostel in Tashkent so took my reckless enough to admit stay "friends" in the Fergana valley and issued me a receipt false - because they were settling me an invitation. Registrations can also check the police at any time on pointe czeck. I also checked after the accident.
Well, district - what, I / my friend / dozens of other travelers transited through Uzbekistan and took it somewhere – The hotel can sleep in 2-3 times! And one of them did not want either in hotels or at the border!
Exactly. I heard it too, and I can still hear this information. In my case it was different, in your theses can be variously, because it looks like, it is a lottery. Probably best to stay in the whole Uzbekistan and describe stories day after day.. (It can be boring, but can someone help in understanding the subject and thought process)

So theoretically, I do not have to worry about for the next two days. The problem is that, stretching along the roadside, intersected by canals endless cotton fields I can not quite find a place for a tent. In a roadside small hotel receptionist refuses to accept me, because I have no continuity or receipts for each day of stay in Uzbekistan. He looks at me with piercing eyes asking "and where were you between 9 a 11 October..? Furthermore, really do not like her, I have the registrations on the current night (sgeruję mistake hostel) and does not respond to suggestions, I can somewhere with so perched on the side, a mat on the floor, because in the end you do not have to give me any registration today because I already have..

Border guard asks for my registration. Resigned, I give your file. The clerk puts them slowly and carefully one by one by date, including rail ticket. Asks the rest for the last days. I sweat flowing from his forehead, I do not have. Consult this fact with a colleague in the second and boxing .. Nails exit stamp. We managed to, but the vision was to pay a penalty close to - or I just thought.
To sum up - registration duty in Uzbekistan, however, I propose to not underestimate, although much depends on luck and chance. I did not hear about it, someone paid the penalty for failure to comply with the requirement, but the deportation case was recently described on forum Caravanistanu, where I suggest you consult the latest information in the subject line.
It is also possible, and I hope, that the new president of Uzbekistan will abolish soon as this absurd requirement of Soviet times.
And what you have experience in the subject?
