    You can get the same exchanged in the local forex office in the hotel that you are staying in. Please note that in Uzbekistan, there is a prevalent black market where the rate is higher than the banking rate, BUT this is considered illegal by law and since these people operate in open markets, bazaars and streets, it could attract attention of the police and lead to arrest. Please also note that old or damaged currency notes are not accepted, as you would not get exchange as per the applicable rate, but at a lower one.
