Tourists and short-term business travelers will need to apply for a Turkish e-Visa on-line before traveling to Turkey. The e-Visa replaces traditional visas formerly stamped inside the traveler's passport or issued at the border crossing into Turkey. Applicants obtain their Turkish visa electronically, the e-Visa application can be submitted online, and the e-Visa itself will be returned via email.
E-Visa is valid for tourism or business travel to Turkey. For other purposes such as work or study, a traditional visa application can be submitted through Travisa Passport and Visa Service.
The Turkish e-Visa is issued electronically; it is not necessary to submit original passport or other documents for processing. Simply complete and submit Travisa's online request form and the Turkey e-Visa can be processed within approximately 24 hours or less.
E-Visa can be obtained easily from anywhere without waiting in long lines at the Turkish embassies or consulates, or at the border crossing upon arrival into Turkey.
Travisa is a private company assisting travelers with online immigration services.
