At Untamed Borders we recommend applying for visas with a professional visa service who can guide you though the process and take care of lodging and collecting your passport with multiple embassies, so we have teamed up with The Visa Machine. They live and breathe visas and have the expertise to provide current and accurate information and arrange the correct visas for your trip, quickly and at a good price.

In many countries, without a visa you'll simply be turned away at the border or at check-in for your flight. The cheapest way to get a visa is to deal directly with the embassy of the country you need a visa for. However this can be a confusing and complicated process, with obscure questions on application forms, limited help from embassy officials, long waits while your passport is being processed and time consuming trips to embassies. The Visa Machine handle every aspect of your visa application, leaving you time to enjoy planning the rest of your trip.

This invite is issued for all ralliers who applied. Usually that's hundreds of people. The Turkmen authorities won't issue individual invites, so for data reasons, we redact all the names and passport details on the list except for those in your The Visa Machine order.

So, for example, if there's only you on your order, you'll see:

1) the first page of the document in Turkmen and English,
2) a "list" page from the invite list with only the line with your name and details in it,
3) the final page of the document in Turkmen and English.

If there are more than one of you in an order, you'll have multiple "list" pages showing only the lines of the invite with those individuals who are in that order.

You must print out all pages that have been uploaded to your The Visa Machine account. They are all vital.

It may not look much, but this is the official Turkmen permission for the person/s named to apply for entry into Turkmenistan and without it, you won't be able to get your visa once on the Rally, and you won't be able to enter Turkmenistan. So please look after it in case you can't print it out again when you're on the road
