The Agency of Archives of the Republic of Turkmenistan
In order to obtain access to archives in Turkmenistan foreign nationals should submit a written application on site. It will be best if they have a ready official letter from their institution describing their goal and subject of the research. Access to the collections is very problematic and many of the existing collections are closed or restricted, so it is strongly advised to contact the archive in advance. Written permission is given by the director of the archive and good for one calendar year.
