Turkey Visa and Passport Requirements
|Passport required||Return ticket required||Visa required|
Passports must be valid for at least 60 days beyond the expiry date of the traveller's visa or the end of the traveller's visa exemption period.
Visas are required by all nationals referred to in the chart above except:
1. Nationals of Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden, who can enter Turkey without a visa for 90 days within a 180-day period.
2. Nationals of Lativa, who may visit visa-free for 30 days.
Turkey has introduced an e-Visa scheme allowing nationals of over 90 countries to apply for their visa in advance. The sticker visa previously available at ports of entry is being phased out in 2014, and nationals in the chart who do require a visa must apply for an e-Visa in advance online at www.evisa.gov.tr/en. Kiosks where you can buy visas on arrival are currently still available at Turkish airports if you forget to apply for your e-Visa in advance, but fees are higher.
If you wish to climb Mount Ararat, you will need to apply for a permit for your expedition, in addition to any other types of visa which may be necessary.
Nationals not referred to in the chart are advised to contact the embassy to check visa requirements for Turkey.
