Female, 35, holding Hong Kong SAR passport.

I applied the Turkmenistan 5-day transit visa in Bishkek on 13 July this year, and got a news from the turkmen embassy in Tashkent on 31 July that it was issued. They asked me to pick up the visa at the border, however they didn't send me confirmation letter nor give me any ref. no.

When I left Uzbekistan and arrived the first border control in Turkmenistan, they didn't allow me to go without visa. I explained that the embassy asked my to pick up here, they asked me for ref. no which i don't have. After struggling for nearly an hour, they took my passport and went somewhere, then came back and said ok.

At the custom I paid $73 for everything, waited for around 3 hours for luggage checking, finally entered Turkmenistan.

I heard from some tourists they got 7 and even 9 days transit visa, the approval rate is much higher this year. But remember to get the letter or reference no. before heading to the border.
