Troyan highlighted the importance of the fact that the new application has a special directory where foreign tourists from all over the world are able to download and submit their visa applications. Troyan said that Uzbekistan’s delegation, which became the first among the representative offices of UNESCO member states to implement an international project of this kind, would thus make a great contribution to further increasing the flow of tourists into the Central Asian country.
