Well, this isn’t the type of news we wanted to see as we greet the new year!

As was proclaimed in our blog of December 14, 2016 (http://www.fivestansadventure.com/blogs/entry/travel-to-uzbekistan-made-easier) it was announced by the Uzbek government that they were going to ease its Uzbekistan visa policy for tourists. People from throughout the world quickly began to make plans to get their Uzbekistan visa to experience all of the wonders this country possesses. Alas, a new announcement was made on January 9, 2017 that rescinded this decree and postponed its implementation to 2021. Apparently they made this decision after taking a closer look at their tourism infrastructure and its capacity to handle the expected influx of tourists. For years, travelers have complained about the onerous procedures to obtain a visa, and for one month it appeared that the doors to enter Uzbekistan would be wider. Unfortunately, this new decree will return things to the way they were before. This doesn’t mean that you are not permitted to visit this country, but you will still need to get your Uzbekistan visa the old way until their infrastructure is updated and improved.

Five Stans Adventure still has the capacity to meet your needs to get an Uzbekistan visa. We can supply you with a letter of invitation that needs to be submitted along with your application. For more information, you can refer to our earlier blog about getting a visa here (http://www.fivestansadventure.com/blogs/entry/getting-an-uzbekistan-visa).
