Registration of IMEI codes of mobile devices is simplified
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Uzbekistan has introduced remote biometric identification when registering IMEI codes of mobile devices. This was announced at the ICTExpo exhibition.
Individuals will now be able to register two mobile devices (phones) brought with them from abroad, without customs duties. Previously, citizens could register only one phone.
At the same time, citizens must declare imported phones when crossing the customs border.
Now registration of IMEI codes can be done online using Face-ID. This will allow to protect the user’s personal data. An individual can register IMEI codes through the official website uzimei.uz, the Unified portal of interactive government services my.gov.uz and its mobile application, as well as by contacting system operators directly.
The period for using mobile devices of foreign citizens coming to Uzbekistan without registration has been increased to 60 calendar days (currently 30 calendar days).
