 No More Visas on Arrival in Turkey

Beginning April 10, 2014, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs will no longer provide visas on arrival to foreign travelers.  All foreigners must obtain their Turkish visas from Turkish missions abroad or from the e-visa application system, depending on eligibility.  PLEASE NOTE:  The e-visa system is only usable for travelers entering Turkey for tourism or commerce.  For any other purpose of travel, the applicant must obtain a Turkish visa in advance from a Turkish diplomatic or consular post.

Information regarding Turkish e-visas and the application process can be found at:  https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/
