Section Overview

The Tashkent Consular Section provides visa services to Uzbeks and third-country nationals, including nonimmigrant and immigrant visas.

Announcement (July 24, 2014)

The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system.  This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or VISA at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.

The Consular Section will use the contact information that you included on your DS-160 visa application to notify you that your visa is ready for pick up.  Unfortunately, we cannot expedite issuances under any circumstances due to these technical problems, nor can we predict when the visas will be ready.  We thank you in advance for your patience.

Overview of Visas

A visa is issued by a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. A visa gives you permission to apply for admission to the United States. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, formerly INS) officers at the U.S. port of entry will determine how long you are permitted to stay.

A citizen of Uzbekistan, wishing to enter the U.S., must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. The type of visa you must have is defined by immigration law, and relates to the purpose of your travel.
