Uzbekistan - New Rules For Visa On Arrival Starting May 1, 2018?

Postby WJ2000 » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:56 pm

Does anyone know more about these new rules, such as eligible countries and restrictions (such as the short "approved tours" requirement)?

"Transit Visas for Uzbekistan Available Starting May 1

08 February 2018

Category: Uzbekistan Visa

Starting from May 1, Uzbekistan will offer short-term entrance visas for those traveling through the country. The visas will only be valid for 72 hours, reports Gazeta.uz. This decision was announced by the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

Transit passengers will be able to leave customs zones in airports for short, approved tours. Visitors will be able to leave the airport between 8:00 and 21:00 with a guide. Passengers who decide to use this service should have a plane ticket (and if necessary, a visa) to a third destination. Visitors will also need to pay a consular fee.

A list of countries that will be eligible for short-term visas will be released shortly."

Here is the link I quoted from above:

https:/…20180208-409.htm

But there are other articles saying basically the same thing. I have not seen any articles since February, and I have not seen anything about the list of eligible countries. The consulate in New York does not have any information about these new rules.
