Turkmen visa

by titti Online Now Jul 17, 2006 at 2:20 PM

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!

    NATIONAL ITALY (IT) /DESTINATION TURKMENISTAN (TM)

    VISA DESTINATION TURKMENISTAN (TM)

    ...... 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.
