The e-Visa is a permit document that allows entry to Turkey. It is an alternative to the visas issued by our representatives and the visas issued at the border gates. Applicants can obtain their e-Visas by providing the necessary information and paying the e-Visa fees with the specified credit or debit card. After successful completion of the application, the link to download the e-Visa is provided both on the last stage of the application and sent to the applicant's e-mail address. At the border gates, passport control officers can check the e-Visa information from their own systems. However, users are advised to keep their e-Visas with them in print or digital form (tablet computer, smartphone, etc.) in case the system goes offline. The e-visa is not valid for travel to Turkey other than for touristic or commercial purposes (work, student visa, etc.). Such visa applications must be made through our foreign representatives. As with all visas, the Turkish authorities reserve the right not to allow an e-Visa holder to enter Turkey without giving reasons.

What do I need to apply for an e-Visa? According to paragraph (b) of Article 7 of the Law on Foreigners and International Protection No. 6458, foreigners who come to enter our country must carry "a passport valid for at least 60 days after the expiry of the visa, visa exemption or residence permit period, or a document that replaces a passport". Depending on your nationality, you may be required to meet certain other conditions. Information about these conditions (if any) will be provided after selecting your nationality and entry date at the application stages.

Thanks to the e-Visa, which you can easily get from anywhere with internet access, it is possible to apply for a visa and enter Turkey without waiting in line at the Representations of the Republic of Turkey or at the border gate.

No. The date you specify in your application is the start date of the validity period of your visa. From this date, it is possible to enter Turkey on any date within the validity period of your visa.

In principle, the Republic of Turkey does not sell, rent or use the personal information entered on the e-Visa page to third parties for any other commercial purpose. The information received at every stage of the application and the e-Visa issued at the end of the process are stored in highly secure environments. The security of the soft and hard copies of the e-Visa that has been issued and forwarded to the applicant is entirely the responsibility of the applicant. The responsibility that will arise if this information is obtained by third parties by any means belongs to the applicant. The information of the applicant in the barcode on the e-Visa is kept encrypted and electronically signed in the format determined by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey. Access information and authorization to barcode content is only given to institutions authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey. The applicant is responsible for the problems that may arise as a result of the falsification of the barcode.
