- Registration in Uzbekistan
The immigration regulations of Uzbekistan require that all foreigners present in Uzbekistan be registered with the local authorities immediately upon arrival in Uzbekistan. Tourists staying at hotels and students living in dormitories are automatically registered. All other foreigners must register themselves with a local (district or city level) Administration for Migration and Citizenship (AM&C). A tourist visa cannot be extended in Uzbekistan. Visitors staying in the country for up to 3 days do not need to register. Please note, that these regulation require the foreigner to have a valid registration by the morning of the third business day of their presence in Uzbekistan. Therefore, U.S. Citizens who plan to reside anywhere but hotels in Uzbekistan are advised to contact the AM&C office as soon as possible upon arrival. In the absence of registration, foreigners are liable to pay fines.
As of 2019, registration can be made online at emehmon.uz and will require close participation of the host landlord.

Since 2017, Uzbekistan has been frequently changing its laws and regulations related to foreign travelers. Please ask your hosts to contact the district office of AM&C where they reside for the latest overview of the registration procedure.
