Entry Point Turkmenistan Transit Visa

Hey everyone,

One question: The entry point for the Turkmenistan visa is fixed, right?
Which means, I cannot enter TM from Iran via Bajgiran, when my visa says "Artyk, Sarahs, Mary, Turkmenabat, Farap" in the Remarks-section?

Re: Iran-Azerbaijan Border Crossing in Astara

I crossed the border from Azerbaijan to Iran on March 30 by car. The road from Baku to the border is nightmare, although it seems that they’re building a new highway. On the Azerbaijan side, you have to pay 4 AZN for "Customs" before entering the border area; keep the litlle piece of paper...

Re: Azerbadjian with my car

I think RHD cars are no problem, one guy behind me was from UK and entered as well. And, in addition, all those Georgians with their Japan-imported cars can drive there as well, and some Azerbaijanians even own RHD vehicles for daily use :)

Tsiteli-Shikhli border (Georgia-Azerbaijan)

Maybe I'm wrong, but I did not find a topic for this border crossing? By the way, the name "Krasniy Most" as stated on the border information pages about Georgia and Azerbaijan is not used anymore. It's called "Red Bridge" or Tsiteli (Georgian Side) and Shikhli (Sixli, Azerbaijan...

Re: Sarp border at Turkey/Georgia: reports & updates

Crossed the border about a week ago with my car, German passport. No problems on both sides, but queues were long and they only opened one checkpoint. Only 1 person can cross in the car, passenger(s) have to take the pedestrian crossing. The whole border is quite crowded, but public transport is ava...

Hey everyone, crossed from Georgia to Azerbaijan yesterday at the "Red Bridge" Bordercrossing (Tsiteli/Sixli) with Evisa. My car is a 1989 (thus 29 years old) Audi 80, Euro 2. I did not have any problems entering the country, the whole process took about 20 minutes. Just give them your pas...

Re: Embassy Report: Turkmenistan transit visa in Frankfurt

Applied for a Turkmen 5-day-transit visa on January 19 with a German passport and got it on Friday, although I paid the 55,-€ for express-application. If you enter with your own car, they also need a written route description (I really recommend to attach a 'friendly' letter to the MFA to your appli...

Re: visa. how early can i apply?

Which nationality do you have? If you are eligible for an E-Visa, you can apply for it a few days before arriving. If you need a visa issued by an embassy, I believe you can apply as soon as you want, but I am not a 100% sure. Maybe your country's embassy knows more.

Re: Germany to Bishkek in Spring 2018

Thank you for your replies! I am currently working on a better itinerary and try to sell the car in Tajikistan as you suggested. Maybe Tashkent — Almaty — Bishkek — Osh — Dushanbe (via Batken/Khujand) is the better option?
