  1. What is a visa? Do I need a visa to come to Turkey? What is an e-visa? Where to I need to go to get an E-visa? What should I do with My E-visa after I get it? What documents do I need to apply for an e-Visa? Where can I get travel insurance to visit Turkey? Who is eligible for an e-Visa? The e-visa system says I have to get my visa from a Turkish embassy or consulate. How can I get an appointment? Do I need to enter Turkey on the exact date I put in my application? If my travel plans change, can I change the date of my e-visa? Is the information I enter into the e-visa system secure? Do I need to get a separate e-Visa for people who are accompanying me? Can I get a refund if I don't use my e-Visa? Can I get a multiple-entry e-Visa? What is a "comprehensive check?" How long does it last and where does it take place? How much is the e-visa fee? Can my visa be cancelled? I want to stay longer than the time allowed on my visa or visa exemption. Can I extend it? If my visa application is rejected or my visa is canceled, can I appeal the decision? Do foreign students in the Erasmus program pay any visa fees? I'll be arriving in Turkey on a cruise ship. Do I need a visa? What is the “ninety days in one hundred and eighty days” rule? I have a visa, and the 180 days of duration is about to expire. I have only been in Turkey for 40 days of the allowed 90 days. What should I do? I've stayed in Turkey for 90 days already. Now I want to return to Turkey and get a residence permit. Can I do that? I have multiple entries and exits from Turkey, and I need to learn how many more days I can stay in Turkey and comply with the 90-in-180-days rule. Is there a calculator I can use to be sure I get a correct number of days? The immigration official didn't stamp my passport when I entered Turkey. Is this going to cause problems for me? What will happen if I overstay my visa? If I don't get an e-visa, can I get a regular visa when I arrive in Turkey? What is a visa? An visa is an official document which permits you to enter and travel within Turkey for a specified amount of time. Back to Top. Do I need a visa to come to Turkey? Yes, unless you are from a country which is exempt from the requirement of having a visa. Back to Top. What is an e-visa? An E-visa is a tourist visa which you can get online and have e-mailed to you. It replaces the "sticker" visa that foreigners used to get placed into their passports as they entered Turkey. Back to Top. Where to I need to go to get an E-visa? Go to www.evisa.gov.tr, and follow the instructions. It's as easy as booking a flight online. Important!: Always go to evisa.gov.tr for your e-visa. You can know if a website is an official Turkish government one if it has a ".gov.tr" suffix on the URL. If it doesn't have that, it's not from the Turkish government. Once you go through the steps and enter your information then pay by credit card, you'll see a link on the last page of the e-visa system where you can download your e-visa. That link will also be sent to you by e-mail. Back to Top. What should I do with My E-visa after I get it? Save a copy of your e-visa on your smart phone, or computer, in case you lose the print copy. Print a copy of your e-visa and have that with you when yo enter Turkey, along with your passport. Keep the paper copy of your e-visa with you at all times while you are in Turkey. Back to Top. What documents do I need to apply for an e-Visa? A passport valid for: At least 180 days beyond the date you enter Turkey. At least 90 days beyond the date you leave Turkey. At least 60 days beyond the expiration date of your visa or residence permit. Visas for citizens of Europe, the UK, and the US have a validity periods of 180 days. So your passport will have to be valid for 240 days beyond the start date of your visa. There are different rules for some nationalities. To find out what rules apply to you, go to www.evisa.gov.tr and cllick "Apply." On the next page, select your nationality and the type of travel document you are using, and enter the anti-spam code. The system will then tell you the validity date of the visa you are eligible for, if there are any additional documents you need, and if you need to go to a Turkish embassy or consulate to get a visa. Back to Top. Where can I get travel insurance to visit Turkey? There are many companies which offer travel insurance, that you can find while searching the web. The company we work with is is World Nomads Travel Insurance. You can get a free quote from World Nomads here. Back to Top. Who is eligible for an e-Visa? Citizens of These Countries May Obtain an E-visa Online Afghanistan Algeria Angola Antigua and Barbuda Armenia Australia Austria Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belgium Benin Bhutan Botswana Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Central African Republic Chad China Comoros Congo, Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Côte d'Ivoire Croatia Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic East Timor Egypt Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Fiji Gabon Gambia Ghana Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus Grenada Guinea Guinea-Bissau Haiti Hong Kong (BN(O)) India Indonesia Iraq Ireland Jamaica Kenya Kuwait Latvia Lesotho Liberia Libya Lithuania Madagascar Malawi Maldives Mali Malta Mauritania Mauritius Mexico Mozambique Namibia Nepal Netherlands Niger Nigeria Norway Oman Pakistan Philippines Poland Portugal Qatar Rwanda Saint Lucia Saint Vincent and the Grenadines São Tomé and Príncipe Saudi Arabia Senegal Sierra Leone Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa Spain Sri Lanka Sudan Suriname Swaziland Taiwan Tanzania Togo U.S.A Uganda United Arab Emirates United Kingdom Vanuatu Vietnam Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe Back to Top. The e-visa system says I have to get my visa from a Turkish embassy or consulate. How can I get an appointment? If you are not eligible for an e-visa, the system will tell you this as soon as you enter your home country and type of travel document on the first page. You can then apply for an appointment at any Turkish embassy or consulate, anywhere in the world, at Turkish Embassy and Consulate Appointment Application System. Just fill out the appointment application form, where you will be able to select the embassy or consulate you need to go to, and set up an appointment date and time. Back to Top. Do I need to enter Turkey on the exact date I put in my application? No. But the validity period of your e-Visa (180 days for citizens of the UK, US, and Europe) will begin from the date you put in your application. You can enter Turkey at any time from that date until the end of the validity period. Back to Top. If my travel plans change, can I change the date of my e-visa? No. You must get another e-Visa. Back to Top. Is the information I enter into the e-visa system secure? According to the Turkish government, they don't provide your personal information to any third parties. It is only accessed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and those government entities authorized by the MFA. It is stored in a high-security system. You are responsible for the security of the information you download to your computer and print. Back to Top. Do I need to get a separate e-Visa for people who are accompanying me? Yes. Each traveler, including family members, must get their own e-Visa. Back to Top. Can I get a refund if I don't use my e-Visa? No. Back to Top. Can I get a multiple-entry e-Visa? If you are a citizen of one of the countries listed below, the system will give you a multiple-entry e-Visa, and you can come and go from and to Turkey as often as you want during the visa's validity period: Citizens of These Countries Can Obtain a Multiple-Entry Visa for Turkey Antigua and Barbuda Armenia Australia Austria Bahamas Bahrain Barbados Belgium Canada Croatia Dominica Dominican Republic Estonia Grenada Haiti Hong Kong (BN(O)) Ireland Jamaica Kuwait Latvia Lithuania Maldives Malta Mauritius Netherlands Norway Oman Poland Portugal Qatar Saint Lucia Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Saudi Arabia South Africa Spain Spain U.S.A United Arab Emirates United Kingdom Back to Top. What is a "comprehensive check?" How long does it last and where does it take place? It is an exhaustive check of you, and your travel documents. It can occur if a border control official thinks that something about you or your documents is suspicious. A comprehensive check can take up to four hours. If it goes beyond four hours, and you don't consent to remaining there until the comprehensive check is complete, you may return to your home country or the country you came from. Back to Top. How much is the e-visa fee? It varies depending on what country you're from. To find out what the visa fee is for you, go to www.evisa.gov.tr. Click "Apply." On the second page, enter your home country, the type of travel document you have, and the anti-spam code. Click "Save and Continue." On the next page, near the bottom, you will see the fee for your visa. Note: This does not create an e- visa application. Back to Top. Can my visa be cancelled? Yes, if: Your visa is forged. Anything on your visa is erased or changed. You are banned from entering Turkey. There is a strong suspicion that you might commit a crime while in Turkey. Your passport or travel document is fake or has expired. You use your visa or visa exemption for anything other than its purpose. You provide false information to get your visa. Back to Top. I want to stay longer than the time allowed on my visa or visa exemption. Can I extend it? No. If you want to stay beyond the expiration date of your visa or visa exemption, you must apply for a residence permit or leave Turkey. Back to Top. If my visa application is rejected or my visa is canceled, can I appeal the decision? Yes. If your visa application is rejected or your visa is canceled, the Turkish government will provide you with information about how to appeal the decision. This first involves a written appeal to the authority which rejected or canceled your visa. If this is unsuccessful, you can go through the Turkish court system to appeal. Back to Top. Do foreign students in the Erasmus program pay any visa fees? It depends on what country you're from, and what reciprocal agreements Turkey has with your country. Contact your Erasmus program manager to find out what the procedure is for you. Back to Top. I'll be arriving in Turkey on a cruise ship. Do I need a visa? You can visit the city of the port where your cruise ship is docked, and nearby cities for touristic reasons, without a visa. You can do this for up to 72 hours. Then you must then leave Turkey from the same port. If you want to stay longer than 72 hours, you will need to get a visa. Back to Top. What is the “ninety days in one hundred and eighty days” rule? Citizens of the UK, US, and Europe can get a visa which is valid for 180 days. You can stay in Turkey a total of 90 days during that 180 day period, and come and go to and from Turkey as often as you like. If you want to stay longer than 90 days in a 180-day period, you must apply for a residence permit. Learn more about the 90-in-180 days rule. Back to Top. I have a visa, and the 180 days of duration is about to expire. I have only been in Turkey for 40 days of the allowed 90 days. What should I do? You can get another visa, but you will need to leave Turkey, get a new visa, and return. You can leave for just one day by going over the border into a neighboring country, or by taking a ferry to one of the Greek Islands. You don't have to wait until the 180-day duration on your current visa expires, you can have two visas with duration periods that overlap. The important thing is that you don't exceed a total of 90 days in the previous 180-days at any time. Back to Top. I've stayed in Turkey for 90 days already. Now I want to return to Turkey and get a residence permit. Can I do that? Yes. You can enter Turkey if, at the border gate, you fill out a form and promise to report to the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) responsible for the area where you want to live, and apply for a residence permit, within ten days. If you fail to report to the DGMM within ten days, you will be considered to be in Turkey illegally from the date you entered Turkey. Back to Top. I have multiple entries and exits from Turkey, and I need to learn how many more days I can stay in Turkey and comply with the 90-in-180-days rule. Is there a calculator I can use to be sure I get a correct number of days? Yes. See the External Links section at the bottom of this page. It has links to an online calculator and also apps for your smart phone to do an accurate calculation. The immigration official didn't stamp my passport when I entered Turkey. Is this going to cause problems for me? Probably not, since your entry to Turkey will be recorded in the police system (the police control the borders and entries and exits). But if you need to, you can go to the nearest passport police office and get a report of your entry into Turkey and keep that with you. Back to Top. What will happen if I overstay my visa? You'll be fined at the border gate when you leave Turkey. If you have exceeded the duration of your visa for more than ten days, you will receive a ban from re-entering Turkey. The fine, and the re-entry ban, increases according to how long you have overstayed. The ban can be from three months to five years. Learn more about overstaying your visa. If you are caught overstaying your visa before you go to the border gate to leave Turkey, you may be deported. This can happen if a policeman asks you to show identification. If your overstay is a short one, they may be lenient and tell you that you need to leave the country. Then again, they may not. So don't overstay your visa. Back to Top. If I don't get an e-visa, can I get a regular visa when I arrive in Turkey? The old "sticker" visa that visitors used to get on arrival has been phased out. For some time there were kiosks where you could get an e-visa when you arrived, but these have also been phased out. We are not aware of any way to get a visa after you arrive. Back to Top.
