Eligibility requirements Uzbekistan citizenship

The Uzbekistan passport, being the property of the Republic of Uzbekistan, is issued to the citizens of Uzbekistan for internal use and international travels. An ordinary passport is issued to a person at 16 years and must be exchanged each 10 years. The passport could also be changed in case of damage or when the bearer of the passport changed his/her name. The passport contains 32 pages for special notes and visas. It is in the Uzbek, Russian and English languages. According to bilateral and multilateral agreements, the bearer of the Uzbek passport has the right to travel within Commonwealth of Independent States except neighboring Tajikistan (Tajik citizens also required to obtain the Uzbek visa to enter Uzbekistan) and stay up to 90 days without any visa requirements. However for leaving Uzbekistan, one has to apply for special travel permit in local police. This permit is valid for two years and is needed only for leaving the country—the bearer may stay abroad until the passport is valid.

According to the decree signed on 23.06.2009, since 2010 Uzbekistan will start switching gradually to the biometric passport system. The old (non-biometric) passports are valid until the date of expiry, but not later than the end of 2015, both nationally and internationally.

Uzbekistan passport holders can travel to a number of countries visa free or receive visa upon arrival. See article below for more details.
