Re: Border crossing from/to Turkmenistan

We picked up our visa for Turkmenistan in Mashad this morning and a swiss cyclist present there too got his visa with Bajgiran as entry point. So obviously open to cyclists, no worry ☺

Re: Report: Tehran, Chinese VIsa

Same for us. We applied on the 11/6 - 1 French and 1 Turkish. We got the visa with 3 months in China and 3 months to enter. They started to hesitate to issue such a visa for a Turkish national but eventually accepted our request. On the 14/6 and 15/6, some of our fellow cyclists applied - 1 Portugue...

Re: Report: Mashhad, Turkmen Visa

I personally know this French couple, having traveled with them for more than a month. If you apply in Tehran and they don't ask you anything because you required 7 days on your application, then they will give you 7 days in Mashad.

Re: Uzbek visa for Turkish citizens

After having applied for a LOI as a Turkish national, I've been told it usually takes 3-4 weeks to get it (like Chinese citizens according ti the agency).

LOI has been obtained after 7 days. Just need to apply in Tehran now. Will let you know !
