The agreement on the organized recruitment and involvement of Uzbek citizens for temporary work in the territory of the Russian Federation was signed on April 5, 2017.

    In early May, the Russian Federation approved an agreement with Uzbekistan on the abolition of mandatory registration for 15 days from the date of entry for citizens of this country and for Russians entering Uzbekistan. The implementation of the agreement will not entail a significant increase in the number of people staying and will not reduce the effectiveness of migration supervision.
