Uzbekistanis to be able to stay in Russia without registration for 15 days
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Recently, information has been circulated in the media about the entry into force of a procedure according to which citizens of the Republic of Uzbekistan can temporarily stay on the territory of the Russian Federation without registration for 15 days, the Uzbek Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
In this regard, the ministry clarifies that the Intergovernmental Agreement on the procedure for the stay of citizens of the Republic of Uzbekistan on the territory of the Russian Federation and citizens of the Russian Federation on the territory of the Republic of Uzbekistan was signed on 17 June 2021.
Article 1 of the Agreement provides that citizens of the state of one Party temporarily residing in the territory of the state of the other Party are exempted from the obligation to register (registration at the place of stay) with the competent authorities of the state of entry within 15 days.
On 20 January 2022, the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan on the approval of this international treaty was adopted. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan sent a notification to the Russian side about the implementation of domestic procedures by the Uzbek side.
At the same time, according to Article 4 of the Agreement, it will enter into force from the date of receipt through diplomatic channels of the last notification of the completion by the Parties of the internal state procedures necessary for entry into force.
Thus, this document has not entered into force, since the Russian side has not yet completed the implementation of the relevant domestic procedures.
