Transiting through Turkmenistan around New Year?

Postby luketao » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:59 am

I have my Uzbek and Iran visas ready and would like to transit through Turkmenistan from 12/31/2017 to 01/03/2018.

Would it be difficult to get a transit visa for New Year's holiday?
Would the trains/buses/taxis/car share work during that time, say 01/01?

Thank you Steven. I saw on YouTube that there might be a New Year celebration ceremony in Ashgabat.
It was quite dictator chic, so I am actually very intrigued.

Send us a video, if you get in. I have noticed that, for instance in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, it can be very tricky to see these kind of 'massovka' events for foreigners: security is tight and they don't let you in.

Hi, I am tearing my hairs out over this subject! Help! I want a Transit visa for Turkmenistan and a Tourist visa for Uzbekistan. However, I am travelling overland to China from Cyprus starting February 2018,so my dates for each country are not exact. Can I get the Turkmenistan Transit visa on the road and also the Uzbek Tourist Visa on the road? Anybody has up to date info please? Ciao. Rosemary
