Passport/Visa Note

Visitors to Turkmenistan and transit passengers are required to hold sufficient funds and onward/ return tickets and documentation for the duration of their stay in the country. Most visas for Turkmenistan are issued on arrival if visitors are travelling from countries without an embassy or consulate of Turkmenistan. Entry visas can be obtained for a maximum stay of 10 days provided the visitor has a letter of invitation from a company registered in Turkmenistan which has been approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A fee ranging USD40-155 is incurred for this visa.

Visas issued are for the whole of the territory of Turkmenistan, however special permits are required for the following places: Atamurat, Cheleken, Dashoguz, Serahs and Serhetabat. Valid visas in expired passports are accepted provided that the passport holder also has a valid passport for the same nationality. Immigration authorities in Turkmenistan simply transfer the visa into your new passport on arrival, for a fee of USD40.

All visitors to Turkmenistan are required to fill out a landing card which incurs a USD12 fee. Furthermore, visitors must register themselves with the police department within three days of arrival. It is highly recommended that passports have at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
