Explaining the Turkey visa obligation

Are you going on a holiday or business trip to Turkey in 2019 or 2020 ? British citizens, and any other nationalities that are not part of the visa-exempt countries for Turkey, will need to apply for a visa. Even underage children are only allowed in if they possess their own Turkey visa. Are you not in possession of a valid visa? Then the Turkish immigration service will stop you at the passport check after your arrival in Turkey.

What is an e-visa Turkey? This is an official travel authorization from the Turkish government to enter the country through land, sea or air. When this website mentions the visa for Turkey, it always refers to the electronic variant known as the 'e-visa Turkey'. You can apply for this travel permit entirely online, and after it has been granted it will be sent to you by email (example e-visa). You can submit an application for yourself, for somebody else, or for an entire travel party at once.




Turkey Visa Requirements

To make use of the e-visa Turkey you have to meet a number of requirements. Below, the most important requirements are summed up; more information can be found on the page concerning the requirements for the Turkey visa.

  • Your trip has a tourist or business related purpose.
  • You are travelling with a valid passport. Travellers from certain countries can also travel with their identity card (ID card)
  • Travelling with a passport? Then it has to be valid for at least six more months after your arrival in Turkey.
  • You cannot enter into employment with a Turkish employer during your stay.
  • You cannot study at a Turkish educational institution during your stay

Exceptions for the visa

Do you hold a passport from one of the visa exempt countries? Then you do not require a visa to enter Turkey. Are you arriving in Turkey by cruise ship? Then you only need to apply for a Turkey visa if you plan on staying ashore for longer than 72 hours. Changing flights/transits at a Turkish airport is also possible without a Turkey visa, but you are not allowed to leave the airport during the layover period. Are you a truck driver, filming a documentary or an archaeologist? Then you do not qualify for the e-visa; you have to file for a sticker visa at the Turkish consulate. Likewise, if you do not meet the Turkey visa requirements mentioned above, you also have to report to the consulate as your application cannot be submitted online. Examples include not having a valid passport, but instead wanting to travel with your residency permit.


Validity period and maximum length of stay

Follow the rules and avoid fines, expulsion or a ban. The Turkey visa is valid for 180 days. This validity period starts on the date of arrival, as indicated in the online application form. During these 180 days you are allowed to stay in Turkey for a maximum of 90 days. These can be consecutive, or split up in seperate parts. More information on the validity, extensions, renewing and expiration of the visa can be found on the page concerning the validity of the visa for Turkey.

Example

Example: you fill in the application form for the e-visa Turkey on 1 February. In it, you indicate that the visa has to be valid starting March 1st. The visa will then be valid for 180 days starting on that date, until 28 August. Between 1 March and 28 August you can stay in Turkey for a maximum of 90 days. This can take the form of one stay of 90 consecutive days. But it can also take the form of three separate trips to Turkey, staying in the country for 30 days each time. You can make an unlimited number of trips to Turkey, as long as the maximum stay does not exceed 90 days, and they all fall under the overall validity period of 180 days.
