A Statutory Instrument incorporating the recent European Union (EU) Common Position on Uzbekistan is currently being prepared and will be laid before Parliament without delay. This amending Order will enable all those identified in designated EU and UN instruments as subject to restrictive travel measures to be excluded from the UK. Until travel bans are designated by Order, provision exists in the Immigration Rules for leave to be refused or cancelled on non-conducive grounds.

Details of those senior Uzbek officials subject to restrictive travel measures are being placed on appropriate databases which are available to UK immigration officials at posts overseas and ports of entry.
