Uyvar Eyalet (Turkish: Uyvar Eyaleti)[1] was an eyalet of the Ottoman Empire.

It was established during the reign of Mehmed IV. In 1663 the Ottoman expeditionary force led by Köprülü Fazıl Ahmed defeated the Austrian garrison of the city of Uyvar (today known as Nové Zámky, Slovakia) and conquered the region. The Peace of Vasvár recognised Ottoman control over the eyalet. It was returned to Austria after the signing of the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699.
