Turkmenistan Visa

To enter Turkmenistan all leisure travelers are required to have a transit or tourist visa. The tourist visas are delivered on the basis of an approved visa support letter, also referred to as a Letter of Invitation (LOI). Trawelco is a licensed tourism travel agency in Turkmenistan that can provide you with the Letter of Invitation. The LOI requires usually 7 working days to process. You do not need to wait at home for the mail to arrive with your LOI; we will send you a scanned copy to your email address, so all you need is a place with access to the Internet and a printer, in order to arrive at the Turkmen border with a printed LOI copy.

With an approved LOI you can apply for your visa at a Turkmen embassy or consulate abroad, or at the international airport in Ashgabat upon arrival, or obtain it directly at the Turkmen land borders at Farab (Bukhara, Uzbekistan), Shavat (Khiva, Uzbekistan), Khojeyli (Nukus, Uzbekistan), Gaudan (Bajgiran/Mashhad, Iran), Bekdash (Aktau, Kazakhstan),Serakhs (Iran), Serhetabat (Afghanistan),Gurgen(Balkan) and Turkmenbashi (the Caspian Sea Port).

Next to the LOI, an Entry Travel Pass and country registration is automatically required. Trawelco travel agency provides you automatically with these services if you order a tour, or if you book as a minimum all transport and accommodation services through our agency for the full duration of your stay in Turkmenistan.

Transit visas are issued only directly at Turkmen embassies abroad. Please contact the relevant embassy directly for detailed information about prices and procedures.
