Turkmenistan tourist visa
Getting a Turkmenistan tourist visa is not possible without booking a tour. Getting a transit visa might require a long wait, but you do NOT need to book a tour and do NOT need visa support from a tour company (LOI). A transit visa allows a visit of up to 5 days sometimes 7 days which is an exceptional case but it happens some time you get 3 days.
Tourist visa is expensive for Turkmenistan because you have to make a booking from any tour company. Tour companies offers a prices range from 120$ to 250$ per day, including guide, driver, accommodation and food but you can cut your costs by sharing with other people or going on a group tour which is not a big deal.
You have to follow the instructions of your tour company in order to receive your visa. Your e-mailed code will be converted into a real visa on your arrival at the border, your guide will be waiting there for you to facilitate your further process.
