Visa Information

Please check with your nearest Embassy of Turkey or Turkish Consulate if you require a visa to enter Turkey and how the visa can be obtained.

Visas from Consulate / Embassy should be applied for well in advance of your intended departure date as it may take several weeks to obtain a visa. Please note that while ESCRS wishes to assist their delegates by providing the visa invitation letter we do not contact the Embassy or Consulate on behalf of the delegates and we are not in position to influence the Embassy / Consulate procedures or decisions.

NOTICE FOR ALL EU NATIONALS

Most of the EU Nationals require tourist visa to enter Turkey. You can obtain a short stay visa at the port of entry in Turkey or you can apply through the Consulate.

Most visitors may enter Turkey without a visa, or by easily buying a "sticker visa" at the airport, maritime port, or border-crossing point.

You hand the clerk your passport and the fee in CASH ONLY, the clerk sticks a stamp in your passport and you're on your way. The whole process only takes a few mintues as basically, the sticker visa fee is just a tourist tax.

Be sure your passport is valid for at least 90 days from the expiration date of your anticipated visa period, or you may not be admitted. That means that if you are entitled to a 90-day visa, be sure your passport is valid for at least 180 days beyond the date you anticipate entering Turkey. 

You can obtain your visa in advance, before you arrive in Turkey, from any Turkish consulate, but it entails time, trouble, and extra expense (you'll pay a "visa processing fee.") It's much simpler to just buy your visa at the border if you are allowed to.

The information below was obtained from the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website but we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information!For definitive information you must check the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website or contact a Turkish consulate

Sticker visas are valid for the number of days/months shown, upon entry to Turkey. Have the exact amount of Euros or US dollars or UK pounds sterling—in CASH!—to pay for your visa. No travelers checks, no credit cards, no other currencies, NO EXCEPTIONS!
