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)
