How can you enter Turkmenistan?

To enter Turkmenistan, you must get a Letter of Invitation from an authorized or government-approved tour operator agency. It is important to note that obtaining an LOI takes 2 to 3 weeks. Once you receive the LOI, you must obtain a visa at the airport (which generally costs around $100 per person); however, if your nation has a Turkmen consulate, you may apply for your visa there. It is worth noting that it is less expensive than visa-on-arrival and that the visa is stamped on the same day you apply for it. However, keep in mind that while they may give you the visa, they may also deny you, so it's smart to arrange for a backup plan.

Many people dread visiting this country since it's like playing the lottery! But don't give up; most of the time, they will grant you a visa, but it can take time, so if yours is taking too long, apply again. Many people acquire their visas after applying at least four or five times! In addition, you must pay a migration charge per person (only $12) at Turkmenistan Airlines, and keep in mind that they only accept cash at the counter.

Also, bear in mind that when entering the nation, you will be required to complete a customs declaration form, which you must retain with you for the duration of your trip. This form will include information regarding the items you can bring into the country for personal use, such as dollars and jewels. Stay away from ammunition, narcotics, and guns. Keep in mind that the customs inspection process can be complex and time-consuming, lasting up to 3 hours in some situations.
