What to expect when moving to Turkmenistan

Hello everyone,

Is there anything you wish you had known before moving to Turkmenistan? For example, transportation, internet speeds, types of housing, aspects of the culture or social life.

In your opinion, what's the most important thing to know about Turkmenistan?

When would you recommend someone should begin planning their move to Turkmenistan?

What were the most helpful ways you found to get organised? For example, did you use a checklist, were there any particularly useful websites or apps?

What advice would you give to future expats preparing to move to Turkmenistan?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Turkmenistan is no doubt is the most peaceful, safest and beautiful country on the earth. The question is how to migrate to Turkmenistan. Does the country give immigration visa or green card to settle there permanently . Is there any law for immigration. If somebody can provide correct infortmation. Thanks and regards to all Turkmen.

It is really hard to get any kind of visa for Turkmenistan. Country does not give green card. You can get visa for work only if you employed by the company which is active and registered in Turkmenistan.  On order to get permanent visa you have to get married with a citizen of Turkmenistan. Immigration policy of Turkmenistan is very strict.

Thanks dear Allanur for the reply. Now question is what are the requirements if someone wants to marry a Turkmen. Any conditions by the government.  Thanks.
