Re: Turkmenistan Transit Visa in Tehran

Success story here! Australian and Australian/English. None of the phone numbers listed on this website or anywhere we could find online worked so we just had to head back to the embassy to find out. Entering Turkmenistan on an Aussie passport and into Uzbek on British. It does get approved in Tehra...
