Border crossing Serkhetabat Turkmenistan - visa on arrival?

Postby Christoph77 » Mon Mar 09, 2015 11:23 am

Does anyone know if tourist visas can be acquired at the Serkhetabat border between Afghanistan and Turkmenistan?

Thanks,
Chris

Neither possible for Afghanistan nor Turkmenistan, see http://caravanistan.com/visa/afghanistan and http://caravanistan.com/visa/turkmenistan

Concerning the entry to turkmenistan, your answer would contradict with what is written on your we page: " It is possible to get a Turkmenistan tourist visa on arrival in the airport of Ashgabat, as well as on the land borders. You will need a letter of invitation from a tourist agency, which means a booking with them. " i read this as "any/all land borders. Is that wrong?

Ok, I did not know that you were going on a tour to Turkmenistan. In this case, yes, just talk to your tour company, they will arrange things for you.
