Turkmen transit visa by air

Post by Abf500 »

Hello,

Planning a trip to Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan later this year, and I love that this site exists! Re transit visas - is it possible to get a transit visa if we are arriving to (or flying out from) Ashgabat from London (via Moscow or Istanbul, or wherever)? For example, if we land in Ashgabat, and then travel on land to Uzbekistan? Or are transit visas only if you are passing through by land?

Thanks!

Alex

Just in case, if you are for instance a Kazakh (visa-free for Uzbekistan) and would want a transit visa for Turkmenistan, Turkmen embassy staff would understand that.

Same for transit visas in other countries.

Hi alex,

Please read the following article carefully.

http://caravanistan.com/visa/turkmenistan/

The answer you are looking for is written IN BOLD in the 7th paragraph. The question has been asked several times this week on this forum. Answering these types of questions here subtracts time for me to work on the website and provide useful information for everyone. The whole reason why I made the website was that the same questions should not pop up over and over again on forums.

Sorry for being rude, but I have been doing this for quite some time and all your questions are likely to be answered already.

Thanks for appreciating that!

Steven

Azerbaijan airlines offers cheap flights tickets to Aktau (Kazakhstan) and bicycle goes for FREE (need to be in a box though).

For those who do not get transit visa. Also a better option to caspian ferry (highly unreliable) and not that cheap.

Good to know! But let's hope we'll get the transit visa. :)
