Turkmenistan Visa in Aktau

Postby h.vanderkolff » Tue Jun 21, 2016 10:24 am

Hi guys,

Good and bad news if you want to apply for a turkmen visa: Good: you can apply in Aktau (Kazakhstan) for your turkmen transit visa.

We applied about 8 working days ago and got an email today that our visa is approved (dutch and british passports) for pick up in Tashkent.

The details for the consulate:

ТЕЛ: +77292 42 24 74
ФАКС: +77292 42 24 74
АДРЕС: г.Актау, 15-й микрорайон, жилой комплекс Самал, дом №51
E-MAIL: [email protected]

The man working there was very helpful and friendly (even shared some funny youtube movies with us). Documents needed:
- Copies of passport, Uzbekistan visa, iran visa (all colour copies)
- 2 passport photos
- application form (you get it there)
- letter stating why you apply (you get a template there, the guy helped filling it in)
- 10 USD for the total application (for 2 person)

All in all a very smooth procedure and during the waiting the man from the consulate kept us up to date by email.

What is the bad news you might wonder. Well, we just left uzbekistan 12 hours before we got the email of the consulate, after hearing so many stories of refusals and waiting times of 4-5 weeks that we gave up hope... :S
One day too early it seems!

Either way, good luck with your applications!

Hugh and Fay
