Amendments have been made to the legislation of Uzbekistan on obtaining citizenship

As we wrote earlier, the conditions for obtaining citizenship were relaxed in Uzbekistan.

It is worth recalling that the following persons can obtain citizenship of Uzbekistan:

persons who were not citizens of a foreign state, registered at the place of permanent residence in Uzbekistan before January 1, 2005, and who have lived in the republic for at least 15 years;

a child, one of whose parents is recognized as a citizen of Uzbekistan, who has not accepted the citizenship of a foreign state and lives in Uzbekistan.

In accordance with the changes in the legislation of Uzbekistan, from now on, persons born in Uzbekistan and who did not have citizenship are not subject to the condition of continuous residence in Uzbekistan for 5 years in order to obtain citizenship.
