Re-entry to Uzbekistan on evisa

Post by mtp »


I travelled toUzbekistan in August for 4 days. When i tried applying for the evisa, the system was notoriously down at the time. I spoke to someone at the embassy and they said that because I was only going to be there for 4 days, I wouldn't require the evisa. However, was a different story when I showed up in Tashkent. Long story short, I had to purchase a return ticket to Almaty, Kazakhstan on the day of my departure, collect a stamp, come back to Tashkent, and then board my flight back to UK. ( I flew LHR-TAS-LHR).

Two things were made clear to me:

To avail the visa free scheme you had to:
1. Be travelling on Uzbekistan Airways;
2. Have an onward flight to a 3rd destination.

I plan on going again later this month. I want to take a taxi from Tashkent to Termez, going via Khujand and Dushanbe in Tajikistan. Has anyone tried re-entering Uzbekistan on the evisa?
If another visa is required, can I apply for both before I leave from the UK?

The system is fairly new, but if anyone has any experience of this, please do share your experiences.

I’m not entirely sure if this is the same, but I had to exit Uzbekistan because an e-visa can’t be extended (my schedule changed so I needed 2 more weeks than I had) and you can’t apply for a new e-visa when you haven’t used the first one yet. So I went Tashkent-Shymkent-Tashkent to get a new e-visa. I used the same border with a couple days in between. In the end it was no problem - although the guards were a bit unsure about the e-visa system when we got back into Uzbekistan.
