== Visa ==
Transit visas are pretty straightforward to obtain provided you already have the visas for both the countries before and after Turkmenistan, and take 10 to 20 days to be issued. Dates and entry point are fixed but you can leave the country at any exit point, even if a specific border post is written.
Coming from Iran, the best place to apply is Tehran (visa collection possible at the consulate in Mashad). Coming the other way, getting a visa in Tashkent is possible but not the best place in Central Asia as the embassy can be very busy (arrive early
!), process takes more than 20 days and you will have to travel back to Tashkent to collect your visa. Dushanbe is a rather better option as process can take as little as a week and employees are more friendly.
Note than in theory it is possible to apply in Dushanbe and collect the visa in Tashkent a few days later.
On arrival you will also have to pay an extra fee depending on your nationality (12$ for EU citizens)
