Turkmen visas during Asian Indoor Games 1-15.09.2017

Post by steven »

We were informed that the LOI for Turkmenistan is impossible to receive at the migration office of Turkmenistan from 01 September to 15 September.
Please, change your trip dates before or after these dates.

Update: tour operator will not accept anything for the whole of September :(

I applied for a transit visa for the 1. - 5. September 2017 and i got the following answer of the Turkmen embassy in Geneva, Switzerland:

"this is to inform you that due to holding in the month of September of V Asian Games in Turkmenistan, persons wishing to travel to Turkmenistan will not be able to apply for a visa with validity period of 01-31 September.
Persons whose requests we are processing presently for the above mentioned period are requested to reconsider the dates of the potential travel and apply for other dates than the mentioned period."

But during the month of September it is possible to apply for a transit visa at Turkmenistan embassies for the beginning of October?

I have a Letter of Invitation (for Tourist Visa) with entry into Turkmenistan on September 17. I will get visa at Farab border. My travel agent assures me that this will be fine.

Update on my previous post. I entered Turkmenistan yesterday (September 17) and obtained my Tourist visa at the Farab border without any problem. (Except for having to wait for the Tajik team for the Asian Indoor etc Games to be processed ahead of me.)

I suggest that all future posts about Turkmen visas distinguish between Transit and Tourist visas as they are totally different beasts.
