The Turkey online e-Visa, introduced in 2013, is a single or multiple-entry visa, that allows stays of 30 or 90 days, depending on the nationality of the passport holder.
Eligible citizens are required to complete the Turkey online e-Visa application form to enter the country.
This can be done in a matter of minutes and cuts out the need to go to an Embassy or Consulate.
The Turkey e-Visa is typically valid for 180 days, from the date of issue.
The Turkish e-Visa, which replaces the previous “sticker visa,” was created to expedite the visa application process which in turn allows visitors to save time when applying for a visa and when entering the country.
The e-Visa for Turkey is available for nationals traveling for tourism and business (commerce) purposes.
Travelers that are planning to go to Turkey for other purposes, such as to work or study, should apply through a Turkish Embassy or Consulate.
