Their Bri­tish au­thor is the edi­tor of the North Asia edi­tion Me­gan Eaves, who vis­ited our coun­try in Septem­ber 2017 as part of a group of jour­nal­ists un­der the pro­ject of the Uzbek diplo­matic mis­sion in London, Uzbek­istan Air­ways and the com­pany Max­i­mum Ex­po­sure.

The first ar­ti­cle is a video about im­pres­sions from a trip to Uzbek­istan de­scrib­ing the main tourist ‘pearls’ - Bukhara and Sa­markand, evenings in yurts in the Kyzylkum desert, as well as the ameni­ties of us­ing the Afrosiyob high-speed train.

An­other piece is de­voted to the re­cent decision to in­tro­duce a visa-free regime for seven coun­tries and fur­ther steps in this di­rec­tion. The ar­ti­cle of the in­ter­na­tional mag­a­zine in­forms that from Fe­bru­ary 10, 2018, ci­ti­zens of seven more coun­tries will be able to visit Uzbek­istan with­out a visa for up to 30 days. Worth not­ing that the list is made up of Is­rael, In­done­sia, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Ja­pan and Turkey. In ad­di­tion, the re­quire­ments for ob­tain­ing visas were fa­cil­i­tated for ci­ti­zens of 39 states, in­clud­ing sev­eral EU mem­bers, coun­tries of Asia and the Mid­dle East, as well as In­dia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. They will no longer have to file an in­vi­ta­tion for a visa, and the em­bassies of Uzbek­istan will is­sue it within two work­ing days.

Lonely Planet also men­tions about Tashkent’s plans to in­tro­duce a new sys­tem of elec­tronic visas from July 2018 to fur­ther sim­plify this process. Trav­el­ers will be able to sub­mit their documents via the in­ter­net, and visas will be is­sued at the air­port upon ar­rival.
