The Migration Service of Turkmenistan has launched a website where you can queue for a foreign passport for a fee

At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on February 25, Secretary of the State Security Council Charymyrat Amanov told Acting President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov about the digital services provided by the State Migration Service, the state information agency TDH reports .

In particular, as Amanov said, the Migration Service has opened its own website , where you can join the electronic queue for obtaining foreign biometric passports, make an appointment on issues within the competence of the department. The site works in Turkmen, Russian and English.

Berdimuhamedov noted that one of the main tasks of this Migration Service is to provide services not only to citizens of the country, but also to foreign guests.

“The organization of this work must meet the requirements of the time and be carried out using best practices and the latest technologies,” the President’s acting director said.

The editors of the “Chronicles of Turkmenistan” tried to use these digital services and make an appointment for a passport. It turned out that the service is paid and registration in the queue costs 5 manats . It is proposed to pay through one of the banks online, however, none of the presented ones worked in our case - payment sites are not loaded.

Clarification. It seems that in our case, the sites did not load, since the HT editorial office is not located in Turkmenistan, and the payment service is available only from the territory of the country. When restricting access to banking sites for foreign users, it would be good to see a corresponding message from the bank, and not blocking by IP addresses.

At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on January 28, Charymyrat Amanov reported on the work on digitalization of passportization and registration of the population, and Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov noted the importance of automating the issuance and issuance of passports and the introduction of a centralized digital population registration system.
