Due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, which affected the whole world, the roads between Turkey and Turkmenistan were closed and the citizens of Turkmenistan in Turkey could not return to their countries. Today, many Turkmenistan citizens are still experiencing problems due to the closed roads. At the beginning of these problems is what the citizens of Turkmenistan will do, whose residence permit has expired and who do not have a passport. In this blog post, we will talk about the problems faced by the citizens of Turkmenistan, the solution of these problems and when the roads to Turkmenistan can be opened.
To obtain a residence permit in the Republic of Turkey, certain conditions must be met. At the beginning of these conditions is to have a passport with a validity of at least 6 months; If a foreign national wants to obtain a residence permit from Turkey, he must have a passport with at least 6 months validity. Due to the fact that some of the citizens of Turkmenistan have been in Turkey for a long time, their passports have also decreased or expired. For this reason, they are victimized and cannot take any action. In order to solve this problem, they have to go to Turkmenistan and obtain new passports, but they cannot return to their own countries because the roads between Turkey and Turkmenistan are closed.
Turkmenistan announced that it started a new process in the past months and announced that they will extend their passports until 31.12.2022 for people whose passports are about to expire.
It is not yet clear when the roads will be opened with Turkmenistan. Although there are various hearsays and rumors about this subject, no specific date has been given by any official institution so far. With the weakening of the Kovid-19 epidemic, it can be foreseen that the roads may be opened again.
