Do I have to take the Covid test?
From 16.03.2022 for tourists was simplified entry to Uzbekistan. Unvaccinated provide the result of the test (made no later than 72 hours before departure).

Who needs a visa?
For a long stay in Uzbekistan and in some individual cases, foreign nationals will need a visa. For its registration you will need documents:
- A passport with a validity period of 3 months and with 2 blank pages for a visa stamp;
- filled-in visa application form with a citizen’s personal signature;
- Receipt for consular fees: payable at a bank or post office. Depending on the duration and type of visa – from $40 to $250;
- copy of visa application from an individual or inviting organization. If the visa is working, there must be a letter of guarantee from the employer or a valid work contract. If tourist visa, invitation from travel agency or hotel (licensed to receive foreign nationals);
- 2 photos (as for passport).
When applying for a visa to Uzbekistan it is recommended to get medical insurance as well. It will protect against financial losses and the need to find a clinic on your own in an unforeseen case.
Reasons for refusal
Visa issuance decision is made within 7 working days. Visa to Uzbekistan can be refused only for serious and objective reasons. If a citizen:
- Is in black list due to violation of migration regime during past trips;
- provided false documents or unreliable information;

Travelling to Uzbekistan is not associated with serious obstacles: a minimum package of documents and compliance with customs and migration rules is sufficient.
