The Government of Uzbekistan plans to introduce a system of issuing electronic entry visas (E-Visa) to create amenities for foreign citizens, wishing to visit the country.

The introduction of the e-visa issuance system will require simplification of the visa regime in force in the country. As a result, the issuance of electronic visas to citizens will be carried out at the airports of the country in accordance with written applications filed by foreign citizens in the process of processing documents for obtaining entry visas, and regardless of presence of the diplomatic representation of the Republic of Uzbekistan in the country where the clearance process takes place.
