Uzbekistan visa on arrival: questions and reports

Postby paula » Mon Jun 24, 2013 10:53 pm

I just heard from StanTours that once I have my LOI with me, I can be issued my Uzbek visa on arrival in Tashkent. I will be travelling with an Irish passport from London so I'm wondering if this info is reliable.. Anyone got any info on this?
Thanks Paula

According to my info, you can only get a VOA when your airplane is coming from a place where there is no Uzbek embassy. London has one, so I would say you cannot get it. Just my 2 cents, my info could be outdated again, but with a LOI you can get a visa very quickly at the embassy in London, so if you have the possibility, I would go for that stress-free option.

Sorry to add to the confusion, but hope it helps!

Thanks for that. I had seen this also on the London Embassy website. I am now leaving from Dublin with a 6 hour lay-over in Istanbul. I hope they will accept that I cannot get to and back from the Uzbek embassy in Istanbul in that short time..?

Hi, those who want to obtain visa on arrival at Tashkent airport , even there is Uzbek embassy in their homecountry, they should show the reason why they get visa at airport not at the embassy. If you submit copy of plane tickets which shows you dont have time to obtain visa at the embassy you can get visa on arrival. But all these issues should be done well in advance and the travel agency in Uzbekistan who is arranging should do it and request MFA to issue visa at airport. Without LOI that has approval to issue visa at airport you can't get visa on arrival.
Hope all goes well with you Paula.

Tajik and Uzbek Visa on arrival

Postby Soren » Mon Aug 05, 2013 9:50 pm

Hi,
Can anyone advice if it is possible to get visa on arrival at Dushanbe and Tashkent airport WITHOUT LOI when being a EU citizen? there are no embassies for these countries in Denmark. I will arrive in Tajikistan late september.
I guess an intended address is required on the visa application, so I probably need to contact a tour operator or hotel to arrange this.

As it says on http://caravanistan.com/visa/tajikistan/ you can get a VOA in Dushanbe without LOI as a Westerner, but it will cost you more than a LOI.

As it says on http://caravanistan.com/visa/uzbekistan/ you can get a VOA in Tashkent only with a LOI.
