According to the State Statistics Committee, Kyrgyzstan topped the list of countries where Uzbeks visited most during the reporting period – 788.4 thousand people.

About 208 thousand citizens of Uzbekistan visited Kazakhstan for tourism purposes in January-May 2022. Almost the same number of people (203 thousand) traveled to Tajikistan.
