Uzbekistan Visa Support / Letter of Invitation (LOI)
Visa support (letter of invitation, LOI) is a document required to obtain tourist visa to Uzbekistan.
LOI application is prepared by a travel agency and approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
No visa support is required for nationals of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Malaysia, Spain, Switzerland, and Japan. Citizens of these countries can apply for tourist visas directly at Uzbekistan diplomatic missions. However, LOI might be requested if an application is submitted outside of the country of citizenship.
We would be pleased to provide you with visa support as a part of a tour package booked with us. The tour can be arranged on the dates of your choice. Please see itineraries at:
from our tour list.
If none of the suggested tours meets your travel preferences, we can make a tailor made itinerary for you or book services per your individual request. The minimum package should include hotel booking, domestic airline/train tickets, car transfers, and one city tour.
To get a visa support letter, please do the following:
- Book a tour package;
- Email us a good quality scan of your passport (full page that clearly shows all text, photo, signature, bar code);
- Email us a scan of a letter with the company seal from your employer confirming your employment and position (retired and housewives do not need to provide a letter);
- Flight tickets itinerary or flight reservation form (required only if visa is to be obtained upon arrival at Tashkent International Airport). See conditions.
Based on this information we prepare a visa support application and submit it to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tashkent. Ministry reviews the application for seven business days (expedited procedure takes three business days)*. Approved visa support is telexed by the MFA to Uzbekistan embassy or consulate where you intend to obtain a visa. We also will send you a scan of LOI with Telex number. You can then visit the embassy and collect tourist visa after submitting application form (evisa.mfa.uz), two passport size photos and paying consular fee.
Consular fees range from $40 up to $160 per a single-entry visa, depending on the length of stay and citizenship. An extra fee of $10 is applied per each additional entry.
*Please note the Ministry reserves the right to deny any application without providing explanations.
