Embassy Report - Uzbek Consulate in Dubai

Postby funkyboots » Sun Feb 15, 2015 1:08 pm

Irish passport - called in advance and was told LoI was not required, then called again and was told it was required, got it in 9 working days from Stantours for US$70.
Embassy easy to find near Bur Juman metro stop, in embassy area. Open 9-12 Sun, Tues, Thurs. Turned up at 8.55, was in at 9, handed over LoI, completed application form (which Stantours had typed up and emailed to me), 2 passport pics and 315 dirhams (US $86). Visa was in passport 40 mins later.

Hopefully this is useful info to anyone else in our situation....

We don't live in a country with a Uzbek embassy so we arranged for a friend in Dubai to apply for the visas on our behalf. I called the Uzbek embassy beforehand to make sure this was possible. The guy I spoke to on the phone was pretty unfriendly. At first I asked him if i could post the passports in and he basically told me not to be an idiot. I then asked him if it was possible to submit the application by proxy and after some loud screaming in an indecipherable language on the other end of the phone i was told "ok fine". So we DHL'ed our passports to Dubai and had a friend take them in on our behalf. When he arrived there (the poor bugger) he messaged us telling us that my letter of invitation wasn't on the system. After 30 mins of confusion somehow this was no longer an issue any more. However we were now being told that they could take mine but they couldn't take my girlfriend's (she's french) because she didn't have a letter of invitation (despite the fact that she doesn't require one) and that she would need to come in person to sign the forms. When we asked them how she was supposed to do that when they had her passport they conceded that perhaps that didn't make sense and they would see what could be done. We were then told to come back on Sunday (it was Thursday) and we would have an answer as to whether or not it was possible. So we sat out 3 days. On Sunday when our friend went back both passports were ready for collection with the fresh Uzbek vises in them and no explanation as to what all the fuss on Thursday was all about. I get the feeling they like to be alarmist for the sake of it and if you push it you can generally make it happen. We are now in the process of applying for Turkmenistan transit visa by email through the Turkmen embassy in Abu Dhabi. I am sure another interesting story awaits. I will keep you all posted!
