As of 15 November 2020 Turkmenistan reduce the tariffs for entry and transit permits for commercial road vehicles: USD 150 for entry (import) permit and USD 100 for transit permit (instead of USD 380 currently). The new tariffs will be in force until 15 November 2021. They will be also applicable to swapped foreign semi-trailers moved by Turkmen hauliers from the border to inland destination, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

 

The COVID-19 restrictions were prolonged until 1 January 2021.

In cases where one or more travellers test positive, they will be quarantined for 14 days together with other accompanying passengers. In cases where all travellers test negative, they will be allowed to reach their place of residence, where they will isolate for 14 days under the supervision of health officials.

With effect from 24 March 2020, the transportation of goods arriving in Turkmenistan by road through the checkpoints "Garabogaz" and "Farap" on the state border of Turkmenistan, followed by transportation inside Turkmenistan, will be carried out by Turkmen carriers. The goods can be transferred from the foreign freight carrier to a Turkmen freight carrier in specially designated areas on the state border, provided that they are transferred without contact.

Foreign trucks which arrived in Turkmenbashi International Seaport prior to, or on 23 March (inclusive) can leave trailers or semi-trailers in the designated areas on the territory of the Turkmenbashi International Seaport for subsequent transportation to Turkmenistan, or for transit through its territory by Turkmen trucking companies. Subsequently, foreign tractors must return, with the driver, by sea.

However, with effect from 24 March 2020, all cargo arriving at the Turkmenbashi International Sea Port, including cargo in transit, can only be sent by sea vessel, on trailers or semi-trailers without tractors, drivers or persons accompanying the goods.

At the same time, for the efficient functioning of transport and transit corridors passing through the territory of Turkmenistan, the Turkmen authorities propose to actively use combined modes of transport (both sea and land) for the transportation of goods in containers and railway wagons.

For any issues relating to the transportation of goods in Turkmenistan and transit through its territory, the Turkmen authorities have set up hotlines:

·       Ashgabat      - +99365647471;

·       Baku             -  +994502900301;

·       Tashkent      - +998712023210/998901297455.

Taking into account the introduction of additional measures in Turkmenistan to combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is recommended that carriers, as well as organisations planning to deliver goods to Turkmenistan, minimise the volume of road freight transport in the region by using combined modes of transport.

Please consider this information when planning transportation.
