Current advice for Turkmenistan?
I've spent all day HUBB-Hunting and Googling, and exchanging emails with Stantours, but I'm still confused about Turkmenistan. We are hoping to go via ferry from Azerbaijan and will be crossing into Uzbekistan.
Does anyone have up to date experience of getting a Turkmenistan transit visa issued (ideally in advance, in London)? How likely is it to be refused?
Second question is how wise would we be (as first timers) to use a transit visa given the potential for delays at the Ferry causing us to run out of time?
Any advice very welcome indeed. Thanks all!
