The country’s government aims is to attract more than 9 million foreign tourists by 2025.

In a bid to boost tourism, Uzbekistan will introduce 30-day visa-free travel for tourists of 20 countries, mostly Central American ones, from January 1, 2020, according to a presidential decree issued, Xinhua reported.

The number of countries that Uzbekistan has introduced 30-day visa-free regime within a year has now reached 85 and the authorities of this Central Asian state say this not a limit.

“I must say that the head of the country gave very serious instructions to introduce a visa-free regime with a number of large states. I think that within a month these decisions will be brought to your attention,” Aziz Abdukhakimov, Uzbekistan’s deputy prime minister, told reporters on Tuesday (August 13).

Uzbekistan’s government has been taking a set of measures to boost tourism. The government’s aim is to attract more than 9 million foreign tourists by 2025 and increase the share of the tourism industry in the gross domestic product from 2.3 per cent in 2017 to 5 per cent in 2025.
