Turkmenistan Closed?

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Turkmenistan Closed?

Post by Bodx »

Hi Everyone,

Have gotten my Turkmenistan Visa(woohoo!) only to now be informed that the borders may be closed..we are set to be there from 3rd to 6th of September, just wondering if anyone else has heard anything? Still hoping to get there :)

Cheers for any info.

Apparently because of the upcoming Martial arts games President has closed all borders and only ppl who currently have visas will be able to enter between August 17th until September 27th.

So all going well I may still make it in next weekend :D
