While easing the process of getting a visa for many countries, Uzbekistan has been applying a visa-free regime for 86 states until today, whose citizens could cross the border for periods between 30 and 90 days, depending on the nationality.

Additionally, since July 2018 visa-free entrance to Uzbekistan was allowed for the period of 5 days for the citizens of almost 100 countries, traveling as a transit through the country.
