Visa to Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan attracts the attention of tourists from all over the world with its rich historical and cultural sights, beautiful landscapes and the spirit of hospitality of its inhabitants. However, before traveling to this country, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the visa policy of Turkmenistan.

Currently, citizens of most countries require a visa to enter Turkmenistan. To obtain a visa, tourists must apply to the Embassy of Turkmenistan or consulate in their country and submit an application with documents that correspond to the type of visa needed. But before applying for a visa, citizens may need a preliminary invitation (LOI) from the State Migration Service of Turkmenistan. Obtaining this invitation is an important step in the issuance of all visas to the country, except for transit visas. The sponsor may be:

  • Turkmenistan accredited travel agency: if your trip to Turkmenistan is planned as a tourist.
  • An individual residing in Turkmenistan: if you are applying for a family or private visa.
  • Turkmen organization or company: if your trip is for business or work purposes.
  • Educational institution: if you require a student visa.

It should also be noted that citizens of some countries may be eligible for a visa on arrival at Ashgabat airport or at one of the land borders if you have a letter of invitation issued by the Migration Service of Turkmenistan. Visa on arrival is valid for a maximum of 10 days. But having an LOI does not guarantee a visa on arrival. It is always recommended to get visa in advance.

Our visa agency is ready to assist you in applying for a tourist, private or business visa to Turkmenistan. In case you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us for information and support.
