Uzbekistan to start visa-free entry for Indonesians this month
The Jakarta Post
Uzbekistan is set to implement a new immigration policy this Saturday that will allow Indonesians to stay in the country for 30 days without a visa.
The same rules apply to visitors from South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Turkey, Japan and Israel.
According to kompas.com, airline crewmembers who regularly fly to the country are also entitled to receive the visa-free status.
Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev reportedly also relaxed procedures for visa applicants from the European Union, the United States, Canada and numerous East Asian and Middle Eastern countries. For example, citizens of those countries no longer need to present travel vouchers or invitation letters from an individual or law agency to obtain a visa. Consular offices will also issue the visa in only two days time, excluding the day the documents were submitted.
The country is also set to apply new technology for e-visa application starting in July. (kes)
