I will be picking up my visa on arrival at Ashgabat airport, what are my options to pay?
It was USD when we were there a few years ago and I'm quite sure it's still the same
Cash, or can 1 pay with visa?
Cash, and it's best to have exact change. We paid $168 for 2 people. There was an extra....small fee within that cost but I can't remember how much the actual visa was and how much the other fee was. You won't find many places in central Asia that accept credit cards other than some of the large hotels.
Thanks for your replies, most useful
You will have to pay by USD , for consular fee 89 and for migration tax 14 USD. but it also depend on your LOI if you were arranged urgent LOI from a travel agent you will have to pay more about 20 USD
I would be glad if this was a helpful for you.
How much is the visa for algerian nationals ? any ideas
HI, I was informed that getting a LOI for Turkmenistan is a long and uncertain process? NO guarantees that it will be issued even after a month or two. Please advise. Thanks
If you book a tour with a Turkmen travel agency they will provide you with the LOI. It should not be a problem.
Dear Beentheredonethat53, I’m planning to travel to Central Asia, Turkmenistan included. There isn’t a Turkmenistan embassy in my country so the tour agent suggested that the visa to be obtained on arrival with supporting LOI on hand. I’ll be joining a group tour. I love to collect passport stamps because it’s romantic and can be very nostalgic, so I’m wondering if you got your visa sticker/stamp when you obtained the visa on arrival?
Thank you very much! :)
Yes you get a full page visa that is stamped when you enter and then again when you leave.
I like to look back at my old passports as well. :)
