Favorite thing: I'm just back from trying to get a Turkmenistan visa here in Almaty. Here's what I learned (for Americans):
1) Letter of invitation req'd: $110
2) 3 weeks to process. $60 for 10 day visa, $140 for 21 day visa. both tourist visa.
You can pay more to have things sped up. I didn't bother to ask how much.
I was hoping to get a 5 day transit visa. I was having someone else help with the Russian, and I just didn't have luck. I got this info from small agency in the floor above the Turkmenistan consulate. I went down to the Consulate with the women in the travel office to confirm prices, etc.
