Turkmenistan has borders with: Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and Iran. It has also a coast on the Caspian Sea. The country code is 993. There are a lot of archeological sites in this country. Because of them, many people travel there every year.

All foreign citizens need a visa. It is best to apply for a visa before you travel to Turkmenistan. In almost all cases, you need an invitation letter of a Turkmen travel agency. The exception is an embassy in Geneva Switzerland. In most cases, you can get a transit visa very easy. This visa can be used between 3 and 7 days. However, a full visa is hard to require.
According to the WHO (World Health Organization) you should get vaccinated against: hepatitis A and B, tetanus, rubella, measles, polio, diphtheria and varicella. People who travel for a longer period should vaccinate against meningitis, tuberculosis and rabies.

The best way to travel in this country is by plane. Since 2013, Turkmenistan Airlines has direct flights to: Abu Dhabi, Amritsar, London, Moscow, Istanbul, Dubai, Minsk and several other cities.
