Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance.

All Americans traveling to Turkmenistan should make sure that their immunizations are up-to-date. Turkmenistan’s water systems are often aging and poorly maintained. Water should be filtered and purified. A good rolling boil for 10 minutes will kill most bacteria and a good filter will remove most heavy metals and impurities. Several brands of bottled water may be purchased locally. Meats should be cooked thoroughly and fruits and vegetables should be washed and peeled.

The consular section strongly advises all visitors to Turkmenistan to obtain medical evacuation insurance.

While we can help you or your family make contact with a medevac service, the U.S. Government cannot pay for your medical evacuation. You should make sure that you have medical evacuation insurance before the need arises.
