Had an identical experience as thl989 above.
The system initially rejected my photo because the head was too small. The system said the fee was $20 but payment with a US visa card was rejected.

So ... with my trip to Uzbekistan in late August (from California), I might as well wait one more week rather than FedEx my passport to NYC, is that right?

I wonder what form this "e-visa" will take to fit into my passport. Guess I'll find out soon enough!

Generally, yes, but I'd advise it only if you'd still have enough time to get a sticker visa if the evisa page still doesn't work on July 15/rejects your payment card/...

Also, be advised that in the first weeks of evisa you'll serve as a test object for the border guards and might run into trouble at smaller border crossings, like other travellers did when evisa was introduced in Azerbaijan and Tajikistan. If you enter UZ via Tashkent Airport, you should be fine.

Hi,
We got our Uzbek visa in Tehran. A man from the embassy told us the e visa system will be ready on the 15th of July. :)

Would anyone of you know if I can use the transit scheme and also get a visa after? I'm transiting form Kyrgyzstan to Tashkent for a day, going to Afghanistan for a week and then entering Uzbekistan again. No information about visa extensions yet?

The transit scheme is for air passengers only, so you can do this only if you're flying Bishkek-Tashkent-Kabul.

Thanks Milad! Yes we are flying Bishkek - Tashkent, wait a day and then fly Tashkent - Kabul. So under the transit scheme there is no need to apply for anything? (eg a transit visa?)

Hey guys,

I was able to submit the online visa application at http://e-visa.gov.uz
It's in beta testing so the whole experience was still somewhat buggy (missing English translations for a lot of strings, lack of confirmation emails etc) but the payment with a Revolut visa card went through.
You will need to resize your images to make sure they are 413 x 531.

I should have probably waited until the official launch date but somehow couldn't help myself.

Also paid and submitted, see the website I recommended earlier in the thread for convenient photo resizing. $20 for a U.S. citizen
