Temirbaba (Turkmen-Kazakh) border crossing reports

Post by Milad »

The British Foreign and Commonwealth¹ office reports that the Turkmen-Kazhakh border has been closed until further notice. As always when the Turkmens do things, there is a lack of further information. If you're in Turkmenistan on a transit visa right now and stuck because of this, I recommend contacting the Embassy of your country ASAP.

Asked about the current situation during a trip to Turkmenistan this week. The border is still closed in March 2019.

Temirbaba border crossing

Post by Billmurie »

We wish to drive from Aktau to Turkmenbashi via the Temirbaba border crossing? Is this border currently open and is the road fully open?
Many thanks.

So I tried to call to the number specified on the Tu bordr crossing page ( +7 708 987 3935) and the guy was pretty angry, he said he has nothing to do with it and does not know anyrhing about Temirbaba. So I suggest delete the info from the site.
