Which nationalities can visit Uzbekistan visa-free?
Up until recently, Uzbekistan was a difficult place to obtain a visa. But on the 1st February 2019, the Government of Uzbekistan started permitting more than 50 nations to enter the country visa-free. Hoorah!
Countries from across the world can visit Uzbekistan visa-free for up to 30 days. These include:
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
- All EU countries
How to get an Uzbekistan Visa
If your country is not represented on the visa-free list, then you will need to apply for an Uzbekistan tourist visa. US citizens, amongst others, are eligible to apply for an e-visa, which saves time and inconvenience.
Applying for an e-visa is easier than having to run your application through an embassy and acquiring a formal letter of invitation. Once you have obtained one – it should take all of ten minutes – you will be granted permission to enter the country for 30 days within 90 days of sending off your application. Once your form has been submitted, you should receive a confirmation email within 48 hours.
How much does an Uzbekistan visa cost?
An e-visa will cost you $20. This is substantially cheaper than the visa programmes offered by other Central Asian countries. Meanwhile, a multiple-entry visa is more expensive at around 120 dollars for US citizens.
Uzbekistan Multiple Entry Visa Application
Multiple entry visas should be obtained on the Uzbek Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. On an online form, you need to enter information including your planned route and the duration of your stay.
