Transit Visa or Normal Visa?

Hello everyone,

I'm planning on flying into Ashgabat and then using a train/bus/taxi to go to Uzbekistan after spending 2-3 days in the country. Can I do that with a Transit Visa? I heard the normal visa you have to be with a tour group and I didn't want that. How easy is it to get a transit visa? I'm USA citizen.

Thank you.

Yes you can but you have to go in a direct route to the border and it is date specific. It may be a little more difficult for US citizens. Search for info on the Caravanistan website. I haven't used their services but they have detailed reliable info about Central Asia travel.
