VISA POLICY OF TURKEY

The visa policy of Turkey deals with the requirements which a foreign national wishing to enter Turkey must meet to be permitted to travel to, enter and remain in the country.

 

Visitors to Turkey must obtain a visa from one of the Turkish diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the 80 visa-exempt countries and territories or one of the 43 countries and territories whose citizens are eligible for an e-Visa on arrival. Turkish visas are documents issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its subsequent diplomatic missions abroad with the stated goal of regulating and facilitating migratory flows. e-Visas can be obtained online or via interactive kiosks placed in Turkish airports. All visitors must hold a passport valid for 60 days beyond the period of intended stay and with two blank pages. An identity document is accepted in lieu of a passport for citizens of Belgium, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.

Turkey, Even though Turkey is a candidate country for the membership in the European Union, it has a more complicated visa policy than the Visa policy of the Schengen Area. Turkey even requires visas from certain EU member states – Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom as well as Norway. However all visitors who are from EU Countries to Turkey can obtain a visa through a simple electronic visa system or a visa on arrival so they do not have to apply at the embassy or consulate. Turkey also requires visas from citizens of the following Schengen Annex II countries - Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, Mauritius, Mexico, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Taiwan and the United States. On the other hand, Turkey grants visa-free access to many other countries and territories – Belize, Bolivia, Ecuador, Georgia, Iran, Kosovo, Lebanon, Morocco, Peru, Russia, Syria, Thailand and Tunisia.

 

Visitors who have recently been to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are refused entry due to Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa.
