Anyone applied for a Turkmeni visa (and got it) in Turkmeni Embassy in Baku?
I see someone else posted the same question months ago, but still no answer.
Thanks!

    ...... NORMAL PASSPORTS ONLY ......
    PASSPORT (MUST BE VALID FOR PERIOD OF INTENDED STAY) REQUIRED.

    VISA REQUIRED.

    HOWEVER, A 10 DAY VISA CAN BE OBTAINED ON ARRIVAL PROVIDED:
    - ARRIVING FROM A COUNTRY WHERE THERE IS TO REPRESENTATION OF
    TURKMENISTAN (SEE: >TIDFT/TM/VI/IS ITEM 1) AND
    - HOLDING A LETTER OF INVITATION WHICH HAS BEEN APPROVED BY
    THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS.
    FEE: USD 61.- PLUS USD 10.- FOR IMMIGRATION SERVICES.
    EXTENSION OF A FURTHER 10 DAYS POSSIBLE BY SPONSOR APPLYING TO
    MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

    PASSENGERS SHOULD ARRIVE DURING OFFICE HOURS, HOWEVER, IF
    ARRIVING IN ASHGABAT, VISA CAN BE OBTAINED 24 HOURS A DAY.

    VISITOR MUST:
    1. HOLD RETURN/ONWARD TICKET OR SUFFICIENT FUNDS AND
    2. REGISTER AT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WITHIN 3 DAYS AFTER
    ARRIVAL.

    IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO HOLD SUFFICIENT FUNDS.

    ALTHOUGH A VISA COVERS THE WHOLE TERRITORY OF TURKMENISTAN,
    SPECIAL PERMIT IS REQUIRED IF VISITING THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
    ATAMURAT, CHELEKEN, DASHOGUZ, SERAHS AND SERHETABAT. PERMIT IS
    ISSUED BY MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL.

    NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE ENTRY REGULATIONS WILL RESULT IN
    DEPORTATION OF THE PASSENGER AT CARRIER'S EXPENSE.
