Uzbekistan has implemented a system for registering and issuing electronic entry visas E-VISA.UZ to start from 15 July, 2018. President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a resolution on 4 July to streamline the process of entry of foreign citizens into the Republic of Uzbekistan. Kuwait has been included in the list of 102 countries, whose citizens can take advantage of the visa-free transit entry.

The head of Uzbekistan also abolished compulsory address of foreign citizens to diplomatic missions and consular offices of Uzbekistan abroad. Starting from 15 July, Uzbekistan will introduce an order of visa-free entry, temporary stay and departure from Uzbekistan through checkpoints of citizens of 101 states that transit through Uzbekistan at international airports for a period of not more than five days.

In this case, passengers must have an air ticket to a third country. The carrier must provide the Border Guard units of the State Security Service of Uzbekistan with timely information on passengers. Visa-free entry, temporary stay and departure from Uzbekistan will also be introduced for foreign citizens who have not reached the age of 16, if they have a foreign passport or a biometric travel document accompanied by their legal representatives, for the period of validity of the entry visa in the passport of the accompanying person, but not more than 90 days from the date of entry into Uzbekistan

When foreign citizens reach the age of 16 during their stay on the territory of Uzbekistan, an exit visa is issued by the migration units and registration of citizenship of the internal affairs bodies in accordance with the established procedure.

An electronic visa is issued for a period of stay in the territory of Uzbekistan up to 30 days with a single entry and is valid for 90 days from the date of issue.
Foreigners must send an application for a visa at least three working days before the planned date of travel to Uzbekistan. Authorized bodies of Uzbekistan will consider the appeal within two working days without taking into account the day of submission of the appeal.

Foreign citizens must pay a consular fee for processing and issuing an electronic entry visa in the amount of US$20. The consular fee is paid electronically through international payment systems.
