Transit visa, detour possible ?

Postby Michèle » Thu Jun 20, 2019 7:30 pm


We will cross Turkmenistan from Uzbekistan to Iran from Turkmenabat to Badjiran.
I would like to know if it would be a prob to go visit the gate to hell (go and back from Asghabat) as it is not properly on our way?
We will use public transport and shared taxis, etc.
Thanks !

It will be a problem when you're being checked by police, as you have to take the direct way between your entry and exit point indicated on the transit document you receive upon entering.

People do it all the time without any problems, and I haven't heard of police checks and visa inspections being common.
