Visa for Turkmenistan
How it works:
All foreign nationals are required to have Visa to visit Turkmenistan. Tourist Visa can be issued based on Letter of Invitation (LOI) approved by the Migration Service of Turkmenistan on the basis of application submitted to them by a licensed tour operator in Turkmenistan.
Letter of application will be submitted by Nomad's Land not earlier than 2 months before the date of planned entry to Turkmenistan and not later than 20 days before arrival of our guests.
The application result is usually known within 10-15 working days (about 2-3 weeks) after such application has been submitted.
With printed and approved copy of your LOI, you can then receive your Visa at the nearest Embassy of Turkmenistan abroad; as well as at most land borders on arrival including the international Airport of Turkmenistan in Ashgabat city.
