Re: Kazakhstan Corona virus quarantine

Just crossed today the border from Russia to the charming town of Petropavl. I’m a French National, no problem at the border, the custom officers had masks and gloves (unlike the Russian ones), but no one took my temperature.

Re: Turkmenistan transit visa poll

Applied in Dushanbe and Tashkent to do a « fake transit », coming from Uzbekistan and then flying to Kazakhstan as it seems it worked sometimes before.
Got rejected two times : « we don’t give transit visas when there is a border between the two countries ».

Re: Help ! Fann Mountain Hike Early October

Hello guys !
Did you get any news from Artuch ? I’m in Dushanbe and would like to go to the Fann (Alaudin lake and Artuch camp) but it’s not easy to know if they are still accessible or open.

Re: Turkmen visa Q&A

Or maybe go back to Kazakhstan crossing the inland border.
Do you have any news if this border is open ?
How can I go to Turkmenistan from Uzbekistan without having to go next to Iran or Azerbaijan (that I already know).

Thanks a lot !!!
