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.

        • 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.
