    Frequently Asked Questions about Turkey visa

    • How long before my travel date should I apply for e-Visa?
      You can apply for your e-Visa any time before your travel. However, you are advised to create an e-Visa application at least 48 hours before your departure.
    • Do I need to enter on the exact date specified in my application?
      No. The validity period of your e-Visa begins from the date specified in your application. You can enter on any date within this period.
    • Why do I need to send scanned copies of documents for e-visa, if I already have US Permanent Resident Card or UK Permanent Resident Card?
      No documents are required to process a Turkish eVisa. Any scans requested are to verify information for processing only. If you do not want to provide scans we can process your visa without them but if any information was incorrectly entered your visa may not be usable
    • Why must a round-trip ticket be booked with specific airlines?
      It does not need to be booked with a specific airline unless you are of a certain nationality. If this is requested of your nationality this will appear on the checklist of documents when applying online.
    • How long must my passport be valid for a trip?
      We recommend your passport be valid for 6 months after your travel dates to ensure you do not have any issues.
    • How long is a visa valid for?
      An evisa once issued is valid for 3 months before you travel. Once you present yourself to immigration control at the port of entry, you may be issued with a stay period not exceeding 90 days, which may be renewed for a further 90 days at the immigration headquarters. The maximum number of days a visitor may stay in Kenya is 6 months.
    • How long does it take to get a visa?
      Most Country eVisas are processed same day. If any information is missing from your order there will be a delay while our team reaches out to you to secure this information
    • What is an electronic visa?
      Electronic visas (known as eVisas) are digital versions of standard travel visas. The benefit is that the process is handled entirely online without the need to submit your passport to a consulate for processing. When an electronic visa is issued it is e-mailed to you instead of printed into your passport. We recommend you bring a printed copy of the issued eVisa along with your passport when traveling.

      Basic health information for travelers to Turkey
      • A hot and arid environment, any travelers suffering from respiratory problems should bring along any additional required medicine which could be hard to obtain inside the country and should stay in cool sheltered environments wherever possible. Plenty of bottled water and sunscreen are also recommended if travelling during the hot summer months for protection.
      • Outbreaks of diarrhoeal illness occur in Turkey. Travelers to Turkey should practice strict food and water hygiene precautions.
      • All travelers should seek medical advice before travelling to the country and ensure that all appropriate vaccinations are up to date.
      Basic security information for travelers to Turkey
      • There is a high threat from terrorism in Turkey and a number of terrorist groups remain active in the country. Statements have been made in the press indicating that attacks could take place against tourists or places used by foreigners.
      • Street robbery and pick pocketing are common in the major tourist areas of Istanbul. You should be wary of approaches from strangers offering to change money or offering food and drink, which may be drugged, or offering to take you to a restaurant or nightclub.
      • Smoking on all forms of public transport (trains, ferries and taxis) and in outdoor venues (including stadiums, playgrounds, cafes, bars, and restaurants) is banned which risks being fined if you are caught smoking in a designated smoke-free area.
      • The possession, sale and exportation of antiquities is against the law, as is the use of metal detectors.
      • Dress modestly if visiting a mosque or a religious shrine. It is illegal not to carry some form of photographic ID in Turkey. It is therefore advisable to carry a photocopy of passport at all times.
      • Do not take photographs near military or official installations.Travelers should seek permission before photographing individuals.
      • Homosexuality is not illegal but is not widely tolerated: public displays of affection could result in prosecution for public order offences.
