Message for U.S. Citizens: Change in Flight Departure Date from April 12 to April 19

The Department of State has arranged a special chartered flight for U.S. citizens and U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents departing the morning of April 19 (please note the datechange) from Manas International Airport. Exact departure time and routing are subject to change.

All passengers will need to reimburse the U.S. Government for the flight, and a promissory note for approximately $1,725 for adults and $1,362 for children must be signed before boarding. No cash or credit card payments will be accepted. You will be responsible for any arrangements or costs (lodging, onward destination or local transportation, etc.) beyond your initial destination in the U.S.  

We do not yet have details as to the arrival time in the United States.  There will be no quarantine in Washington DC upon entering the United States.  The CDC recommends that all travelers home isolate for 14 days after you reach your final destination in the United States.   

Passengers will be able to check two bags of 23kg each, plus a carry-on that must fit under the seat.  There are no overhead bins on this flight.  No pets are allowed.

Once confirmed as a passenger on the special charter flight, you may have the option to deplane in Dubai and personally arrange for your onward travel to the United States at your own expense.  There are currently very limited flights from Dubai to Europe then onward connections to the United States.  Upon arrival to Dubai, you will assume all responsibility for transferring your luggage.  Please e-mail if you decide on that option once receiving confirmation of your seat.

If you want to depart on this flight, please submit your information for the flight and the promissory note here:

If you have already submitted your information via this link please do not resubmit.

Please do not call to confirm receipt of your information; we will contact you if you are confirmed for a seat on this flight. This charter flight is likely to be the only opportunity to depart Kyrgyzstan until commercial flights resume. U.S. citizens who remain in Kyrgyzstan should prepare to shelter in place until normal commercial flight routes resume.
