Visa requirements and visa validity

However, the most important document of all these is proof of onward travel in form of an air ticket for a Visa. You do not need a visa from the country you are coming from just a visa from the country where you are going. Visa validity generally dates specific but if you are nice enough there are many cases when people have gotten their one-day visa within 1 month or even a three-month window. If you have a one-day visa you only get 24 hours to enter and exit the country. The same goes for two and three-day visas as well. This means that if you enter Uzbekistan on Monday with a one-day Transit Visa then you will need to leave the country within the same day and you cannot wait for 24 hours.
